Hi Shinoo,

Do you have an estimated cost for the Evora replacement rings (front cost vs rear cost)?

Also, just to clarify, are these 2-piece fixed or 2-piece floating?

Just trying to gameplan my next brake rotor move, thanks!

Our rotors are floating but are sprung so they don't rattle. They are able to grow/shrink yet remain under load to prevent rattles.

Replacement rings will be about $600/pair.

Hey Shinoo,

Do you have an ETA on when you'll have Ultradiscs in stock? Only seeing the Evora rotors on your site right now and hoping to get an order in soon if they will be available.

Maybe its just me but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for gold or non black hats for the Exige/Elise 2pc rotors. Black hats are just too stealth for a such a racy part.

I also only see Evora rotors for sale, hoping to pick up a set soon.

Thanks
Ken

Ken,

I agree that the Gold hats are cooler but they are not as popular. We offer them for the Elise/Exige fitment every few years to meet some pent-up demand. We'll probably offer them next year.

I emailed you earlier then randomly found your thread. It appears the ultradiscs fit your original Evora Girodisc offering just fine and about ~$600/pr. Fronts have 7 days on them and still look like new. Rears are solid stock rotors with 18 days on them. Doing MUCH better than the original drilled rears but starting to keep an eye on them. BTW I have always run the same size pad on front and rear Hawk HB585 (DTC70). Very convenient. Would that mean I could run the same replacement discs front and rear, just have two different hats? They take advantage of ALL that unused surface area and only overhang ~1mm which just flakes off. Figured an extra 1-3% brake bias to the rears can't hurt and car brakes extremely well this way. Any time I get into edge of ABS zone, it is still with the fronts which tells me the rears could use that extra area. FYI. Might be a nice upgrade for someone that really uses the brakes!!!

Let me check into this. We have not tried running the same pads, front and rear.

Do you trailer to the track with race pads, change them at the track, or just street them? I plan a number of track days this year (Limerock, Watkins Glen) and am thinking through my options.

Race pads are a challenge if you get caught in stop and go traffic. They tend to be overly abrasive when cold so may eat your rotors. This based on the type of pad you select. Read this Blog entry to learn about the different type of pads: Brake Pads

Thanks, Shinoo. I'm just curious, what's the Elise/Exige standard front rotor and caliper weigh?
