Better brake rotors (track use) - recommendation? Elise Cup (250) oem calipers


Recommended Posts

Hello

After one set of front oem brake pads and one set of pfc´08 I have cracks on my oem brake rotors - (Elise 250 Cup with 2-piston AP brake calipers and 288mm rotors)

Have you any recommendation of good aftermarket rotors - for track use? - Better slotted or grooved than cross drilled... - I think about something like this http://komo-tec.com/Shop/Elise/MK3-Toyota-2011/Bremsen/Bremsscheiben-Grooved-Disc-mit-ABE-KBA.html (?)

Thx for info

Jack

I think you're right about going for grooved/slotted rather than cross drilled for track use.

Have you considered floating bells and larger 308mm discs, better for keeping heat away from hub and lighter in-sprung mass too.

I've just put these onto my S1, but isn't going to be used for track:

That's just fine

My choice is in the end the PFC set "by Komotec" - rotors 295mm - for oem standard 2 pot AP Caliper (a little displaced with backplates included in the set)

Weight is 4,7 Kg compared to 6,0 oem one piece rotors. I hope it will be good :-) ...just burn the rest of old pads and lets go to replace...

Looks amazing! Looks like you have gone 2 pot on the rear with additional parking brake Caliper?

any comments on how it stops and how easy it was to fit the second rear Caliper?

Hi, yes front 2 pot's moved to rear, with special bracket (Elise Parts I think) and am using Hi-Spec v2 spot calipers for handbrake duty. (again a special bracket is needed to fit these). Easy enough to fit once you have the brackets. I'm getting some made up.

Can't say how well these work as yet, still waiting for my engine build completion - nearly there....but then it's going to be a while before It's running.

That's just fine

Hi Dave: we have a lot of common points (except that my name is David!):

- I own an S1 with a engine swap

- I am fitting Lotus 2 pot calipers on the rear

- I ordered the brackets from EliseParts

- I want to install an aftermarket handbrake (V2 of HiSpec like yours)

So :

I guess that you imagine how much I am interrested in your rear brake picture!

And the QUESTION is: do you have picture of the inside side? I wonder how your handbrake bracket are!!!

Do you still have your drawings?

MANY THANKS 🙂
