Does anyone know how different are the attachemnts of the calipers in the 2 configs?
From pics seems the base are floating calipers and the brembo are fixed?
Was thinking to buy the base version and then buy brembo brakes separately...

Caliper bosses the same. So, you could add the Brembo later.

And, you could consider our 4 piston and 6 piston caliper conversions...and save both money and a lot more weight compared to Brembo setup (which translates into noticeably better ride quality because that's unsprung weight).

Six Piston Caliper:


Four Piston Caliper and Two Piece Rotors (Max Weight Savings).

The 6 piston Willwood Kit has a 2-piece, larger diameter rotor than the Brembo upgrade. Factory mounted Brembos use the same one piece rotor as the standard brakes. Larger surface area is a plus.

I have been looking at the Goodwin maxed out light weight setup because it could save ~32 pounds of unsprung weight if you did all four corners...

Other than cost :) my main concern is that the light weight rotors might fade faster than stock. Anyone have some experience with this setup? The car will not get tracked, just lots of fast (ok - very fast) bumpy farm roads and street use.
