There was a post...but the amount of steel holding the calliper on was minimal....I will stick with my other brakes before those...and I even have all 4 corners of the R calipers sitting here

Given the directional loading and material used to make the brackets, I think that they would suffice just fine. If they were aluminum... hell no! Anyways, if you decide you need to part with those R calipers (front, rear, or both) just drop me a PM and I'll take them off your hands :)

Not exactly sure what you are saying but here is what you can do that are more common...

Front-

Porsche

Wilwood

Stoptech

WP Pro

Rear-

S60R

Stoptech <-- No such thing. StopTech has never made and doesn't plan to make a rear brake upgrade.

Wp Pro

There was a Volvo 320 mm kit. However it was about as expensive as CJ's Porsche kit AND it was still a single piston floating caliper. CJ's kit is about the same price and a much better option in my opinion. Also, if I recall correctly the Volvo 320mm kit is no longer sold as a kit, but you can piece it together with replacement parts.

Where can I get this 320mm rotor? Thanks in advance

i'm pretty sure if you really wanted stop tech rear brakes you could get them

all it takes is $ ;)

320mm rotors come on the new R's

If all it took was money there would be some. Raf and Kai were instrumental in developing the current StopTech kit and would have paid the extra money for a rear kit. StopTech is adamant that a rear kit is not needed.

The new R rotors are 330mm.

But no harm in running the R rears. Honestly, the difference in a panic stop situation between my car and carsons is little to none. The upside to the R rears is a better disc and more pad choices imo. You *might* see a difference under extreme track use but I doubt it.

On a side note, if it wasn't for the last 3 orders, ST would have canceled production on the kit.
