Will someone ever offer a swap-in 13x1.1" ceramic rotor, maybe with a different pad compound, and you just swap it in? Maybe it's not the ideal setup, but it would be much better than the iron stock stuff.

I think that would be pretty interesting if the tech trickled down like that. Current F1 rotors are only like 12x1.1" per the regulations.
I think the same guys who sell glue on plastic high performance caliper covers (in any hi-po color of your choice) is tooling up to offer hi-po ceramic stick on film for any rotors of your choice.

I thought I saw a double stick tape projecting outta corner but said nothing - didn't want to hurt your feelings.
Oh! I heard you can get the stick on with vent holes printed on. Too much bling?

Wow. Can't believe this thread came back. Might be selling my black 6 piston Wilwoods and 13" slotted 2 piece rotors. Not the same as the big Brembos on the new z but still damn good. Only 200 miles on them.

Correct me if I'm wrong but those will accept A-Molds wheel only or other after market wheels?

Don't know if these would clear sawblades. Amolds, no problems. My wheels will clear even c6z calipers, so hard for me to judge.

Jeff,

The Z06 calipers on my car had to be modify in order to fit. Notice the smoother and rounder shape at the skirt of calipers. The calipers from the factory are kind of square and edgy. My friend machined it down to about 1/2 inch. The inner lips of the star on the Shelby had to machined down about 5mm. I moved the inner parts of the wheels to the outside. Last longer studs was installed along with half inch spacer. It was a experiments but worked out in the end. The new brakes works great. It was alot of work though,but paid off.

I use to have the C5 z06 on my car with the Shelby. I had to use a 1/4 wheel spacer to make it fit.

Thanks Shayne.. Sounds like a lot work for the C6Z06 calipers

When you had the C5 Z06 with the Shelby wheels, did you have the center on the inside or outside of the barrel with that 1/4" spacer?

Jeff, I did moved it out. I remember having clearance issue. Let me find a pic that i took about a year ago.

Bam,

I have the C6 Z06 rear set up but haven't got around to putting it on. Plus i am waiting on my friend. Time with him is like gold which he doesn't have. I was waiting on Jeffvette myself to do the bracket for me but its been over a year already.

Hey thats really cool I didn't think there was a chance in hell that those calipers would fit under the Shelby wheels. What are the details of your set-up, rotor size/application, wheel spacer width etc?

Shayne, I know what you mean about Jeffvette. Great guy, but probably has alot on his plate. He was supposed to hook me up on brackets as well. Ran accross a Wilwood set up and sold my C6z brakes. Now, selling my Wilwoods as I ran accross a smoking deal on a new Baer 6 piston Extreme 14" setup. Already have the Baer 13" setup on rear with small factory calipers. Need to upgrade rear calipers, that is why I am asking. Need the ebrake.
