Any plan to release a 2 piece version of the rear caliper for the C2?

Good products, decent prices. Will definitely be giving you guys a call next set of rotors.

I second the earlier comment on two piece rear rotors. Or even single piece slotted rear. I'm sure that most here will agree that slotted only is much preferred over drilled or drilled and slotted.

I've been waiting for the rear caliper seals to come back into stock. Thanks for the update!

Unfortunately C2's 294mm can't be made with two piece, only 322mm for Turbo and RS (pre-order only)

http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece...ear-p/2495.htm

Rotor Weight Comparisons:
OE one piece (322x28mm) = 18.3 lbs
RB two-piece (322x28mm) = 12.9 lbs (estd.)
Wt saving: 5.4 lbs per rotor; 10.8 lbs per axle.

Note from RB:
This TT/RS rear two piece rotor may appears just the same as those you used to know, but there is a little challenging to design and build due to OE emergency drum brake (180x30mm) is retained.
They can be made available upon request/order, but we wouldn't tell you that you don't need them, not persuading you for a larger kit that you may not need.

Does anyone currently run these RB 2pc rotors? Curious how much life you get out if them since they are more than 2 to 3x the cost of OEM's.
The specs sure look good. Especially the weight savings...

it has to do with their metalurgy and casting methods. (horizontal vs vertical as most common suppliers use). this provides strength and wear consistancy that i havent seen before on any cars i race with.

they have a 2 piece design for every need (sans the early cars) . this means you can use a stock caliper and run the stock rotors with 2 piece design, bump it up to a GTS diameter (322mm) or go a little bigger and use the 330 or even 332mm rotors...........the only mod if you have an S4, would be to use simple washers (machined spacers) to push out the calipers the appropriate amount for an S4 to use a 330mm rotor or a GTS to use a 330 or 332 mm rotor.

im going to cal speedway with these rotors for their last race after providing 2 full racing seasons on the front of my race car. they might be good for longer but i dont want to take any chances and have bought new rotor rings for the remainder of the season. This is my 3rd set of the rings in the past few years and they work great. one of the side benifits of the Rotors , is the cost. big advantage over Brembo and brembo equivalent set ups and its better. check out the link for versions available to use as 928'ers.

the brembo, older RB and new RB rotors air inlet designs


330mm rotors on the car using the stock S4 style calipers
