We've been working on these for quite a while. We thought there was a need to do a proper 2 piece disc that doesn't break the bank.

The way to do that is to design our own rotor so it doesn't require all the machining from a "standard" industry blank. The result are these lightweight beauties!

Only 11.2 lbs per disc vs 13.5 for the stock single piece!

They are properly cast as left and right so the vanes are directional and grooved for good out-gassing and feel.

We've used aerospace aluminum for the hats along with high quality hardware. The hats are anodized silver to keep with the OEM look. We nickel plated the rotor to keep rust off the non-contact areas so they keep you looking sharp!

These come from the same foundry and same recipe used by the major performance aftermarket companies in Europe. We save money by designing our own blank, going direct to the foundry, buying a shed load, AND putting that shed load on a ship vs air freight.

As with everything from BWR, we test, test, test. Here are few pics on our Optima/XB Lotus

And they can put your face through the windshield of this beast.

Later, when it is time for new rotors, just replace the friction surface at a reduced cost.

In stock and shipping now along with all your favorite brake pads!

Any chance of fulling floating bells?

Later,
Eldon
Not at that price. We have them on our HP Rotors. Full Floating is very rarely necessary. On a pure track car, sure. Otherwise they are noisy and costly.

Is that the correct price? Good god... What a bargain.
Yessir! Get them while we have this batch. The way inflation is going they will probably be more expensive (like everything) the next go around!

Now we're talking :)

What's your preference, @eldonz... float in hat or float in rotor?

Great pricing, @fzust!
That's the plan!!!!

You're making it hard for me to keep my promise of 'i'm only spending money on maintenance from now on'. What a tease.

Are you making any changes up front? Will we be able to run 15s?

You can run 15 now depending on the wheel.
