Give this thread a good read.

Basically, you will need at least an 17" aftermarket wheel. You might be able to use an OEM 17" wheel with a spacer but that still hasn't been determined. Mike (BlueK24) has mentioned that you will need about 2.5" of room between your stock caliper and your wheel for the caliper in this kit to clear.

So I see that people are beginning to pay... Lippstuh, do we have an accurate enough headcount to publish a final price? I am ready to pay but am unaware of the accurate dollar amount.

Slotted, I wil confirm. Trying to get a hold of them again. I think we're having e-mail problems. I called 3 times yesterday, guess they were busy.

I'll call in a few hours.

Update
I have updated the first post with new information. If you have doubts about fitment issues, please use the template and read the template instructions. Be sure to print it out 100% size and not scaled down. If your printer says that it might get cut off, just print it, see how it comes out.

Now there are 4 rotor options, please mention which one when I send your invoices. AGAIN, if you do NOT have a[*] next to your name on the first post, you will not receive an invoice. You have till August 10th to send in your payment. Anything after that will be questionable if you make the cutoff date or not.

dude make up your mind, quit threatning not to do this if you cant get your precious slotted rotors. You've made it clear you want the slotted rotors and if you don't you're going somewhere else even though your gonna pay more. We got it. kthx

Okay, I saw your update on the first post about all of the different rotor options, but nothing about the rear upgrade. Am I supposed to assume that those rotor options go for the $215 rear upgrade as well...meaning the slotted/drilled rear upgrade is $285 plus optional $40 SS lines plus shipping/paypal fees?

well FYI
i was gona buy the rear bbk from fastbrake
which should be the same as revolution brakes
over at fastbrake they are selling the rear bbk for $255
and they offered slotted only for no extra charge

I am only trying to help those including myself who wants slotted only rotors

in this groupbuy its $215+70 for slotted rear = $285
but buying from fastbrake will only be 255

if i want to buy something, cheap or not, i would like something i want. not settle for something else. so if you dont care about how the rotor is design. then good for you.
and for those who do care. i was only trying to clarify and help
KTHANKS

Things change. Prices on various things have changed outside of my control and if we are to do this at the price agreed, then the details I've quoted have to be. You may have noticed that I have not run any auctions in the last two weeks as there has been a change in the rotor situation and I have to shoot new pictures with the new rotors (the ones I sent you). My original source for these rotors dried up, so a change had to be made. And, I have to figure out how to make money on these kits now......

You will notice in future auctions that drilled rotors will be standard and variations on that theme will cost what I quoted you for the group buy and more. I have someone updating the web site right now (it's incomplete as yet) but you can look at the real prices and specs there; http://store.revolutionbrake.com/hoprbigbrsy.html

Click on the rotor options drop down for pricing.

So, the original "deal" is no longer available to anyone and it's not because we are greedy. Sorry.

Thank you.

The link has been fixed.

I'm not sure what to do with this situation. If their suppliers do not have it, they just don't have it. What can we do? I need to talk to him on the phone, which is extremely hard to get a hold of him.

If you have any suggestion on how to fix this situation other than asking for a "free upgrade" to slotted and drilled.


I personally am disappointed, but I don't have any control or leverage on negotiating something. Any suggestions in what you want out of this situation would help me help the group buy improve.

How about some pictures of the rotors we are being offered?

I've tried a variety of rotors and have come to the conclusion that a good set of blanks will offer the best stopping power. The new selection of rotors changes nothing... this is still the cheapest kit on the market today. Those who want different rotors and are willing to pay more elsewhere should do so and let everyone else finish the group buy.

agreed, i believe that drilled and slotted will only be for looks. They say drilled is great for cooling the rotor, etc, etc. But our cars aren't on the level where we will need that or benefit in anyway.

You might think well you're hosting the group buy. I honestly do not care... I just want a bbk that works, of course drilled & slotted looks the best.... but i got VS-XX and they basically cover everything... So i'll just get drilled or even blanks.


I will speak with Phillip (yes my name is Phillip as well) soon to see if I can do anything about the situation. But this is out of my control and I am doing my best.


Invoices will still be going out as the next week progresses.


Best Regards,

Phillip

Any idea who makes these rotors? I want to go with the drilled but being able to resurface the plain rotors can be a tremendous advantage when you consider the expense or resurfacing cross-drilled rotors. My main concern is the quality and the ability to withstand warping cause if these drilled rotors warp be prepared to shell out some serious $$ to get 'em resurfaced.

Not sure who makes the rotors. I tried getting in contact with Phillip via phone, but he's never in the shop. I left a few messages but they say he rarely comes in. So I e-mailed him again a few minutes ago (but we have a few problems receiving e-mails). But I'll get in contact with him soon.

I'm almost positive I cannot make any changes. So I will be sending out invoices in the next few days. I have answered all e-mails. If you didn't get a response, please e-mail me again or even call me (remember I don't get texts).



Best Regards,

Phillip Cun

so clarification, we would be paying $800 for blank bbk? (as reflected by the price on that link)

or am i to understand: $500 + $70 drilled and that's it?
