Another BBK option

Hey guys, I just got done fabbing up some caliper mounting brackets for Kai (Kschwiggy) and thought I would share

Pair of 05+ RL 4 pot Advics caliper off ebay $200
Pair of rebuild kits from Acura $100 (so they could be powder coated, rubber doesn't like 450F)
Pair of Rotora (RD.40036.A.330.01S) 12.8" rotors (not sure what he got them for)
EBC yellow pads.








These cleared TL Type S 17" wheels with no issues, but will not clear stock 17" due to offset, you would have to add a 15mm spacer to get the stock 17" to clear.

I would need the TL-S calipers and rotors you plan to use, but I am sure I can fab something up.

Awesome job Paul. I have a McFaddendales hardware store near by that I utilize to build all the custom bbks aswell. Gotta love the higher grade bolts and hardware. What are you using for the bracket, Steel or Alum?

hey paul, nice work on the BBK.. i'll probably do that after i'm done everything else, unfortunately, not a priority right now.

i decided to track you down on here, i sent you a PM on G7A yesterday, just makin sure it went through.

and since i can't PM on here yet (too few posts) i figured i'd leave a post.

Nice work, very innovative. Just a few additional notes for clarification since it will help others out.

1. The ROTORA discs should have the slot facing forward, towards the front of the car.
2. I am pretty certain those are TL Type S wheels. The TL base wheels and TL Type S wheels both clear the factory Brembos available on the TL M/T or TL-S (A/T and M/T both get Brembos). I believe the A-spec wheels are 18".

And if anyone needs the ROTORA rotors we carry that part # in stock. The slotted pair about $320/pair and drilled/slotted are about $350/pair.

I did not care at the time what direction the slots were facing, just wanted to do a fitment check. And yes they are the Type S wheels, my bad.

Capnf and Sabel you have PM.

Not sure what other rotors have the same specs as far as offset, but you could go larger, say 13", 13.2" by simply adding a spacer between the caliper and bracket.

Didn't say you did care; was just letting others know so when they install them they don't follow that pattern.

it also varies between different rotor manufacturers. some have the slots going towards the front,some to the rear. Hence the reason why its always questionable. I have mine going towards the front. I base the direction on the vane and not the slot.

That is correct. It's just ROTORA rotors were referenced and that is what ROTORA recommends. Technically on a disc with a straight vane it doesn't matter which way the slots go but ROTORA recommends they face forward. On a disc with curved vanes it does matter which way it goes so with a ROTORA BBK disc with curved vanes it's important which way the slots face b/c it will change which way the vanes go. Some of the 1 pc 13" BBK disc are straight vane so it may not even matter but I was just was trying to help out and give hte info I had for others.

Very strange that this was just listed a day ago on the website that's a steal if they are selling it for the price, I wonder what type of rotors it comes with it.

nothing surprises me these days paul, i'll still have a good year though and i'm sure you guys will.


Excelerate at $325 for calipers and rotors. And yet the rotora rotors you're trying to sell go for 320 a pair, rotors alone. Explain to me what type of rotors come with the RL kit that makes the cost so cheap.

P.S keep your for sale stuff out of people's discussion threads as that's one of the rules on the forum. Unless someone asked you specifically, it would be way cool.

Very cheap rotors that were not originally made for drill/slot, the low end rotors they sell are equivelant to the cheap Autozone or Advanced rotors that are then machined to add the slots/dimples and re-coated, they work, but are not on par with a Brembo, Rotora or Power Slot.
