Default C6 Z06 brakes on a C5 PART II (installation pics)

my cousin and i got our LAST set of these brakes. here are some pics to show what we did on my FRC. I used different wheels, so no spacers were needed. again, just bolt-on, bleed and GO!

The Full Set:


Caliper pics:



Rear rotors: NOTE: the inside drum for E-Brake

The stock Z06 C5 brakes are sweet...I can't imagine how those binders work! Direct bolt on...man, that's awesome!

Even though i'm still breaking in the new brakes, i can feel the difference.. i can feel that they bite a lot more i did use a whole Quart of Syn. brake fluid to fully flush out the system. as for availability, my cousin posted our part # found on our parts in my previous post. not sure when these will be ready for production, but my guess would be sometime after the 2006 Z06 debuts. hope these pics help out w/ any questions.
