which wheel in particular you want to see if they will fit.
The above 2 wheels would be easier for me to find compared to a 19in g6et wheel.

This one:


FG G6E version is 18, which I own a set of.
FG G6ET version is the same wheel but in 19. If the 18 inch version fits then the 19 should you would think.

Also these:


Found on FG XR6T MkII. They are 18 inch.

From my understanding any factory fitted Ford 18" alloy should tell me whether they are compatible or not.

Haha Thanks for the feedback gtxxr6.
I should have given more background about these discs. They have been developed over time with many race cars in Korea, using the best quality materials with a very high carbon content. They support the Korean V8 Super cars and so many other classes currently racing.
This is why we where so surprised after trying to smash them in 40 degree heat over summer.
Thanks again
Brett

We have the rear discs now but still need more testing before we are happy to put on the market. The alloy hub also need a slight revision to the drawing but apart from that seems to be all good.
I would expect it to still be about two months before we have the full production version ready for sale.

Seriously considering a set of these rotors for front and rear. Would love to get some weight off - so the alloy hats are a go.
Are there any ADR type accreditation on these ?
Just checking.

Hey Bluey,
We exceeded all the ADR requirements during our testing and ABS performance checks. Even after continuous stops above 160kph (20 times) we observed no loss of brake performance or pedal feel/effort. The calliper we use is sourced direct from a vehicle manufacturer which is the OE part on a 2100Kg luxury car. It has been through all OE tests and not an aftermarket type calliper. We chose this calliper as it is currently used on a production car and has amazing performance and quality for the cost.
Cheers
Brett

Hey Doogs,
We have the discs in test but the rear calliper is difficult. We are going to try and source the rear Terri calliper or just have the rear alloy hat disc as an upgrade for the GT.

Will the rotors be for the brembo 4 pot caliper or single piston PBR rears?

I couldn't believe the rotors after the track day I did, they looked brand new even with the aggressive pads I was running. I've upped the ante to full race spec pads now after I killed the set I had lmao

We want to be able to supply for both the Brembo 4 pot and the PBR callipers but just takes a little time. We now have on board the ex brake engineer from Prodrive to help get these things happening quicker now. We also will have a FG test car soon to test new brake and other chassis related parts.

Hi Brett, sorry to labour this point but what I take from your reply is that the kit meets and has existing ADR approval as caliper (rotors and lines?) are being used on another car that is being sold in Aust. Great kit, I just want to be sure of the legal compliance of the kit if there would be an issue with insurance etc down the track.

Brendan, My Brother In law has a G6E Ecoboost and it has the G6E 18s on it I'm sure we could try one out over your brakes sometime.

The calliper offset is designed for the rotors we use with the kit as the Ford rotor is not suitable for the calliper we supply. We have the Brembo replacement rotor if you are using those callipers though!

Talking to the brake engineer from FPV and now helping us, we are not required to have ADR approval. ADR approval is for selling or manufacturing a vehicle in Australia. You will find the other brake discs or kit available are also not required to have ADR approval as an aftermarket product.
While we exceed the ADR test procedures, to apply and get approval for a brake package can be a huge cost.
The calliper we supply is from the Hyundai Equus and is a 2100Kg luxury flagship in Korea and has been through all engineering requirements for OE production.
I hope this helps mate.
Cheers
Brett

Hey,
Pretty keen on the front kit, PM me when you get the rear rotors sorted, will snap them up too. Cooked mine on a track day, have cracked one of the rotors and it's eaten the pad after less than a week. If anyone tries to tell you that RDA are as good as DBA, send them my way. Definitely not.

Hi Amin,
The rear PBR rotor replacement will still be a but of time away. We have been so busy with some shock development for some other models and testing overseas for a couple of weeks. The front upgrade is available but maybe a couple of months before we have the rears ready for sale. Sorry for the delays but we are still a small team:-)
Cheers

garbage photo quality i know, but goes to show how beefy the 4 piston shockworks kit is. the calipers themselves are basically the same size as the 6 piston brembos. and anyone who has compared 6 piston brembos to 4 piston brembos knows how tiny the 4 piston brembos are in comparison.
