Default Girodisc Rotors C7/ZO6/ZO7

2017 Grand Sports loses 18.6 pounds of rotating weight an average of 4.65 pounds at each wheel by going to Girodisc rotors and hats. Looses another 33.2 pound by going to a set of Forgeline GA3R wheels. 51.8 pounds total of rotating unsprung weight.



The Girodisc system is a direct replacement for the OE disc
The central hat section of our rotor is made from strictly U.S. sourced 6061-T6 aircraft specification aluminum. The disc is made from our own proprietary cast iron, poured in the USA and machined from start to finish in house at Girodisc. The rotor utilizes a curved vane design, developed in racing to act as a centrifugal pump to force cooling air through the disc.
The rotor and hat have a floating mount system, which utilizes 8 or 10 high strength alloy steel drive pins, manufactured by Girodisc in the USA to our own specifications and cadmium plated for a long lasting corrosion resistance. These pins take the load from braking actions while maintaining the axial and radial float between the hat and disc. The pins are secured by grade 12 cap screws with hardened washers. In order to keep the rotors from making noise when cold, the pins are mounted with anti-noise spring washers on the rotor side which allow the rotor to grow with heat expansion but eliminate the rattle and noise associated with floating rotors. This float also allows the rotor to self center between the pads.

Once the Girodisc system is in place, simply replace the cast iron rotor when needed.

Default Fronts only

Any issues with just replacing the Fronts on a iron rotor Z06? By backs are still in good shape and I'd like to wear them out before changing them out also.

No issues with using the Girodisc iron up front factory in the rear as long as both are iron disc.

I have a Z07 with the Essex AP Racing BBK in the front and stock ceramic brakes in the rear. I will need to replace the rear rotors this year. I am looking at various options. Can I purchase just the rear Girodiscs to replace the ceramic rotors?
