You're right, it just looked like a smaller rotor in that bigger wheel And who knows if willwood makes a kit to fit the caliper studs You could probably machine your own bracket to mount the caliper to but then you open up a can of worms in engineering something the first time and its probably not worth it in the end.

Took some measurements of the rotor and hat yesterday. Didn't yet compare them to what is available from Wilwood, but at least I have that done. Those Rotora H6 pads really wore down the rotors, so it won't be to far in the future that new ones will be necessary. Might be Wilwoods this time around.......


Recent updates from Darton East.



They trimmed the bottom of the counterweights for piston clearance, and machined the block for clearance with the rods.

so pretty!

Let me know if you want the info on the pads we use... I can dig it up for ya. They wont be the most street friendly and will squeal a bit on the street but you will never stop better at the track

You could have a street rotor and pad combo and a track rotor and pad combo.... Just saying it to say it but don't swap pad types on the same rotor if you can help it.

I'll dig up the pad info when I get home.

If you get serious at the track, consider these tires heavily. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....el=Ventus+Z214

We get tons of laps on these with the ~same grip as cup tires or hoosier sticky's. Not positive if these would work on a truck but worth looking at...

Hey Torspd, mind checking out my RS 8.0 Build when you get a chance? I'm trying to decide between which lightweight crank pulley.

Hmm, we ran the same rotors for most of the year with the willwood h pads. At least 6 weekends full of hotlaps (probably ~250 miles of running HARD each weekend)! We had to change out the rotors at the last track day due to cracking, not material loss wear. We had one nice crack running all the way thru the outer edge of the rotor which means a change. radial spider cracks are fine its just the ones that radiate all the way out to the edge that can grenade a rotor... = bad day.
