Regarding the e60 front big brake kit, why is the replacement Rotor Ring shown on your web site not the same size as that comes with the kit?

Sorry, the link is corrected.

Our M5 brake kits are designed and built to OE size rotors (same dia and offset), so you can swap between RB two piece and OE rotors, or just purchase the calipers & adaptors be deducting the rotors from the kit price.

Some pictures of our calipers:

Front 6 pot - This caliper is made for direct swap to Porsche pccb ( 410x36mm Carbon Ceramic Brakes)



Rear 4 pot:

I have been following your company's growth, technical advance for over 7 years (Evo and Z06 c5 and c6 forums).

I have been convinced for a long time that when the day comes that my track abilities exceed my cars braking abilities your BBK's are the first ones I will buy.

Keep up the good work.

Than you and please allow me to introduce our company.

Our devotion to motorsports brakes development in the last decades has evolved RB become a brake solution provider in the motorsport industry although we are relatively unknown to general consumers.

We were the first company introduced our center-mount light weight two piece stock replacement for WRX/STi and EVO8 (come with Brembo calipers) in early 2000, and 13" brake kits for SRT-4, WRX - The most popular entry level motorsports cars. We were also the first brake company introduced a 100% stock replacement two piece rotors for Corvette Z06 in 2006.

Nowadays we make more two piece rotors than all the competitions combined for stock replacement two piece rotors (from Acura to VW.), including the M5/6 and 7 series.

https://www.racingbrake.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=7112

We actively expanded our brake system development about 4/5 years ago upon the call from GT-R community where the brake issue is well known (for its weight and speed). This results our stock caliper replacement offer, and as of today most serious track racers run RB calipers.

To bring the associated components (rotor and pad) to the same highest level, we started introduced Surface Transforms'
CCM-X discs to our development and today we are leading the market in CCM rotors including our latest addition for Tesla and Mercedes GTS.

Carbon Ceramic Brakes







Our most recent development is the track brake pad for CCM rotors. We closely worked with GTR and ZR1 track racers for their track feedback and re-formulated our compound. This full metallic pad is made from sintered process and dedicate to handling the heat in excess of what a CCM rotor can sustain (700C/1300F) w/o oxidation.

Upon the approval of the track drivers (Shawn from GTR testing in VIR and Ron from ZR1 testing in Thunderhill), we are proud to officially release this pad to production with a ship date in September.

Anyone interested in this sintered pad development/review can click below link:
In Quest of Ultimate Brake Pad for GT-R..With CCM Rotors




The success of this pad development not only will close our link in offering a complete brake system for competition motorsports but also allow members to have another choice for their brake solution.

Thank you for your reading, and please feel free to respond to this thread if you have any questions or concern about your brakes.

Warren-RB

I loved Shawn's account of trying to destroy the first set of carbon ceramic rotors put out years ago by a UK company.

He is an extreme racer with boundless passion for pushing the envelope; on one occasion into mad scientist territory when he discovered the CCM rotors cannot be destroyed even when pads run down to backing plates.
Amazingly he did not loose much track braking performance or friction coeficient runing steel on CCM.
There is not a pad one can make that will wear the surface of these rotors. For racers it is wise to have them reconditioned every few years if running them near or above specified temps.

CCM rotors are far more durable than the thin surfaced carbon surfaced OEM rotor, never heard of chunking or cracking under extreme use.

Well stated. Anyone interested in tracking further responses as to how the ST-CCM rotors got destroyed beyond re-condition can clink below link:

BTW we just completed our shipment today for another kit of CCM-X for Vern' ZL1 (Camaro)
