    Dave,

    I've got a similar bracket designed for the SHO rear brake enabling me to run the 11.6" front rotor back there... This is extra nice because 1) no bolt patten change, 2) ready, reasonable options for calipers, 3) rear brakes really don't do that much so no need for overkill (cobra/redrill pattern/fancy caliper's/etc...

    How difficult would it be to fab up a bracket to allow running sport rotors on all four corners... I may have left out a few ateps for running 11.6's on the front, but if so let's just keep it on the rear end...

    If I'm the only one who's interested in something like this just say so and I'll check it out myself on a 'one off' basis.

    TIA.

    They are little pricey but you can get 13 and 11.65 rotor drilled for 4.25 at http://www.discbrakesrus.com/

    I sold the last set the other day and am waiting on a new batch of rings. I'll post here when I have them back in stock.

    VERY Nice bracket Dave. Wish this would have been available a few years back when I had to fab my own.

    I built a Factory Five Racing Cobra replica with IRS and went with the 11.65" rear rotor. I would think you may have a potential market with the FFR crowd as our cars tend to need more rear brake bias. The only bracket option I have seen to fit an 11.65" rotor prior to yours is for the Cobra rear calipers - that I believe uses a smaller piston compared to the TBird / MarkVIII / XR7 calipers.

    You should consider getting the word out to the FFR builders that this bracket is available to allow a different caliper.

    Hey Dave, could these brackets be used on the 96 LX Sport rotor (11.6") or the Gen3 SHO rotor 11.6"?

    I am waiting on another run of hub rings right now and I intend to have the brackets anodized for corrosion protection so price will change slightly. Once that is done I intend to offer the brackets to others as well as the SC group. Right now this was a pilot run and had a few minor tweaks along the way.

    Chris, I have no idea if they would work. I have not tried to fit those rotors but I will look into it. Most likely the offset is going to be different.
