I really can't fault them at all. Very factory feel, no noise. Some quick street, back road driving so far. Very happy, I can't stop staring at them they look awesome. The tire fitters were very impressed.

Brett- any chance of seeing the front calipers in red with shockworks logo in black.

I just like the red calipers to stick original FGX XR8 look, and the red looks nice against my smoke colour. Seen many other calipers that are red and not brembo, and if you have shockworks logo in black- should not be an issue?

Anyway, is there room for red calipers with black shockworks logo on it?

Cheers

For those interested, it was my car that cracked the first set of Shockworks rotors but this is under extreme conditions with 285 slicks on the front with an overworked 4 pot Brembo that created hot spots due to lack of pad surface area.

The service from Brett at Shockworks was exceptional though and the rotors were replaced.

I have not had a problem with the latest set of Shockworks rotors and that includes a few more full track days on 285 Hoosier R7's.

From a design point of view this 6 piston caliper with the 34mm directional vanes has me very interested.

34mm provides the heat sink ability I require and I am very interested in these 6 piston Calipers.

At the moment our stock is Black and Silver. I have had a few inquiries about red calipers but not sure how many people will want this, but considering the calls we are getting will order some red versions just to cover the colour range:-)
We are making a new order now so will have a few sets in red, in the near future:-)

Cheers
Brett

Could we get some measurements available to check wheel clearances for this package?
