R1 Concepts

Post by sgt tunez on Fri Apr 15, 2011 4:09 pm

I contacted this company in search of performance rotors and brake pads. They offered me a decent price of $435 for a set of drilled & slotted rotors and posi-quiet low dust/low noise ceramic pads. Is this a decent price?

And if so, who's helping me put them on?

Sounds like a great price. When I had my CSRT8, I think I paid around $500 for rotors and pads. I'd be glad to lend a hand if you need it.

Yeah, I need to get some caliper paint ordered so I can black out the calipers and rotor hats.

You may want to look at Caliper Covers instead of paint. This is what I am using now:

Pretty cool idea, just a little pricey to me. But I guess it's worth it if you don't have the time to prep and paint your calipers. I'd still want to paint the rotor hats to match as well, so I may as well do it all.

I like the cover idea. Don't have to keep up with painting the calipers every year. Now I'm unsure what colors to go with. I am eventually buying black and red or black and chrome wheels. Should I go with black or red paint for the rotors and caliper covers?

Tough choice. Red is pretty popular but it depends on your overall theme. I plan on a very blacked out and stealth appearance, so I'm going black all the way. Do you have, or plan to have, any red accents anywhere else on the car?

The only red so far is in the interior. I may go with red stripes on the side of the car.

Then I would say red calipers are the way to go. I would paint the rotor hats black

So I've had the drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic pads for over two years now and it's still not time to change them! Love R1 Concepts!
