Those with BBK's please advise

I bought some Rotora's and Hawk Hps pads from you awhile back but it didn't stop that shimmy when braking at speeds of 50+.

Those with bbk's please share your experiences.

Well maybe you have something bent in your suspension or a caliper needs to be rebuilt. Maybe a piston is sticking. I would try re-bedding the pads again too.

A BBK disc is pretty difficult to warp if you chose to go that route. However I would oversee your current setup to see if something else is amiss.

im looking just to upgrade my 2008 Type S's rear, will it be a problem running 2 brand's BBK brembo factory up front? also will stock type S will clear the BBK for the rear? or does the 04+ application fit the 08 at all?

Thanks

Are the rear rotora BBK for the 6mt TL rotors the same thickness as OE? Also what's the lead time for Black?

No I have sold it that way before. It should be fine. I don't know for certain but I am pretty sure. I can send you a wheel fitment table. Just email me asking me for it at [email protected]

No it is thicker and wider in diameter. It takes about 30 days to do a customer color and it costs $300 extra. Red and sky blue metallic are the standard colors.

Hey Excelerate,

Do you have the part numbers for the 2pc and 1pc BBK kits for a 99-03 TL... I may need to purchase rotors from you soon and wanted to know which one I will need. Thanks

Is this possible yet? To use 2pc rotors on 1pc kit? Thanks

So you are looking for the part #'s for the BBK or for the replacement discs for the BBK?

I was looking for the replacement part number of the rotor for BBK because I thought i was purchasing a used BBK caliper kit. Made a mistake because the kit wasn't a BBK but just a 4 piston OEM replacement. Thanks for trying to help though.

You cannot upgrade to the 2 pc discs yet but ROTORA will offer that on new BBK's eventually. It won't be an option for older BBK's. Sorry.

How much are the replacement rotors for an 03 CL-S BBK? How long are they good for? Deciding if I should replace my rotors while doing the pads. I have 30k on my 1st-time rotors and pads.

Drilled/slotted or slotted? If the slots have disappeared then the rotor has reached its min thickness. That is your best indication. Usually you can get 2 sets of pads out of each rotor, so usually about 40-50k.

Are the custom colors powder coated? I doubt they would be anything else, but just wanna make sure.
If I was to get the gold color, can the letters come in black or anything else? I think gold and white would look kinda dull.

Bump...

I have a 07 TL... Is it possible just to do a BBK upgrade upfront and keep the stock brakes in the back? Or would that be a problem?

Do you have a base TL, AT or MT?

Yes it is fine to do a front BBK only if you get a balanced kit like ROTORA and STOPTECH offer.

Meaning the kit is set up properly for your vehicle. If you buy a no name kit it can offset the brake balance. That isn't the case with ROTORA and STOPTECH; both those companies sell balanced brake kits.

So yes the BBK will work just fine on your car. The 1 pc 13" 4 piston kit is a great bang for the buck; if you have the funds upgrade to the 2 pc setup.

Since you carry both the wilwood and the rotora BBKs for CLs, I'm just curious to see how you think they compare? Seems intriguing that the wilwood bbk comes with a 2-piece rotor for the same price as rotora's 1-piece. Does that mean quality-wise, rotora makes a better product? (I know that the rotora has had an application for our cars for a lot longer)

The Wilwood kit is really not a Wilwood kit; it just uses Wilwood calipers. IMO the ROTORA kit is a better kit b/c it uses higher quality components and it is actually designed for the vehicle. The Wilwood kit really is based off another vehicle. It's a great kit for the price but I like the ROTORA product better and it has much better wheel clearance.

Is the Wilwood wheel clearance the same or worse than the stock 6mt/type-s brembos?

Worse, the Wilwood kit requires a lot of clearance.
