THIIS PROOFS THAT YOU ARE THEE WHEELMAN IN THIS FORUM.lee2375 said:it's not exclusive, is it? we've had those available from RT for a little while now.
Couple points about this kit:
1. On this 15" kit, the mounting hat actually moves outboard on this kit due to the thicker rotor, thus adding effective offset. The 8 piston caliper is going to require EVEN MORE brake clearance than the currrent 14" setup. This rotor itself is also extremely heavy. For these reasons, it was believed at RT that the kit was a bit of overkill for most street applications.
2. Customers are going to have to very careful when choosing wheels to go over these. HRE or some other custom wheel may be the only way to go. 5XX series have more clearance than 4XX series. Also, remember to subtract some offset of your wheel spec to maintain the same desired frontspacing, otherwise rubbing will occur on the front fender.
3. I gotta hand it to my boy Jim at Ultima, NICE $%*#$& DISPLAY!!!!!! DAAAAAAAAAAAMN HOMIE!!!!!
BTW: For those of you in the NY/NJ area, make sure you do stop by Ultima and check it out. Mike and Jim are GREAT guys and have a great selection of products and knowledge as well as great customer service; they are enthusiasts just like us.
Oh yeah, they have a kickass shop, too.
