dultanur said:and also if you have money, go for the brembo gt kit with the 2 piece disks as they are lighter...
S3_MCD said:but there more like £1500 new rather than £800 .....thats alot of extra cash for ?very little? actual weight saving.
Ess_Three said:Personally, I prefer 1 pc discs.
A lot may be location dependant...but in the frozen north, land of salt, they are easier to look after with no rattling or seizing of the 2 pieces.
Stewart said:Is that the only/main reason Glen? Ease of maintenance?
Porsche have gone back to 1 piece disks on a few models so that also must say something about longevity/durability...
I've had these ECS 2-piece disks on for over 2 years now with no problems but they are 334mmx32 rather than the 322mm of 993TT/996 models.
Six ring trips and Oulton and Donny trips use as well...
Ess_Three said:No doubting that they work...
But any better than 1pc?
will_b said:Ive had 2 piece and 1 piece brakes and thay have both been top notch - 2 piece are cheaper to manufacture so consider that......
Stewart said:On a slightly different note, Cory from Quattronics does a 996 Brembo/Porsche upgrade using R32 disks but won't use 2 piece disks (He actually quoted ECS 2 piece disks) as he reckons they warp too easily.
will_b said:sorrry i thought this was an audi forum...........!
2pc brakes are cheaper to produce becaude they make one stud pattern and one disc and mate them together making the disc replacement cheaper as only they need to be replaced which they can mass produce as they fit multiple discs.
will_b said:Make two piece rotors for a car, offer several different discs for it, and even just replacing the disc part when its worn and manafacturer wise its cheaper! Trust me...im a DJ...!
PS. bolts are made on such a massive scale that they cost sod all!
