    New 2 piece DBA club spec rotors for oe calipers

    DBA has designed a track ready two piece rotor for the oe (2 pot) calipers, designated the 5010. It utilizes the same kangaroo design technology as their other rotors ( a series of different shaped pillers/columns that help pull hot air out of the rotor- also stiffen the rotor). It also manages to squeeze an additional mm in width and diameter. By my scale, about a 1 lb weight saving over oe- talking to Steve weight wasn't a concern- cooling/longevity were. Combine this with a worthy pad (running Enless CCX now, but switching to Ferodo DS2500's soon), ss lines and uprated fluid and you'll have brakes that will work on the track or getting the groceries.

    Flash made the tops look a little different color than they are.

    What size wheels do you need to clear them?

    These will work w/ the oe (16X6.5) wheel, that's one reason I wanted them. Cost, I'm not sure- got them for Christmas .

    YES! I don't care how much they cost now, I'm not a fan of big wheels and was not gonna up the size unless I absolutley had to. Seems now that I won't. I have hammered pretty hard on the oe rotors(some shake when they are cookin), but when the time to turn em comes along, I think I'll be sporting some DBA 5010's, steel lines and better pads, even considering one of those braces for the master cylinder(50/50 on that one).

    Anyone have a fav fluid they might wanna mention?
    2003 WRB Wagon. Vishnu Stage 2(VF30). DBA 5010's/steel lines/Carbotech Bobcat pads, MRT topmount. Tein coilovers, 22/24 mm sways, ALK....I'M DONE!!!!!!

    I've got a setup much like your describing. I'm currently running Endless CCX pads front, NAYs rear- great pads, very expensive. I'll be swapping them for Ferodo DS2500s when there done (about $125 for the fronts vs $250 for the CCX, they spec (temp/friction coefficient) very close. I'm currently running the one piece DBA club spec rotors (very nice), Goodridge lines and Motul 600 fluid. I'm working on a duct system utilizing 2" high temp, reinforced silicone hose and our oe duct openings (still have a way to go). I've also considered the MRT booster bracket like you.

    This type of brake setup will be more than up to any autox, rallyx and track day.
