Default 2pc Rotors For JCW Mini Cooper???

Anyone know of anyone that makes 2pc Rotors (such as Perf Friction) that makes 2p floating rotors for the R56 JCW Brembos?

I have never heard of floating rotors for an automotive application, only motorcycles.

I doubt there are any out there now.

But, Stoptech makes some MINI hardware, and TCE has Wilwood stuff and is very MINI knowledgeable.

Todd (of TCE) is active on NAM. You can search him out over there.

I just searched some for the Evo and WOW, they are expensive.

Seems to me a good set of Powerslots would work just as well and you could get all 4 for the price of a pair of floating rotors.

The money spent vs. performance gained of floating rotors doesn't make sense to me on an automotive application.

Weight is the biggest difference ... and you can reuse the hats too so 2nd time around they dont cost as much

I think Brembo has a 2 piece rotor set. They aren't floating though.

I like the idea of this. It wouldn't surprise me if someone started making them. All you'll need is hi-temp fluid, better pads, and a set of these and you'll have the ultimate big brake kit.

Yep thats what the Evo guys do that do full blown racing.

The R56 JCW Brembos should be good as they are 4 piston fronts and 2 piston rears just like a Evo.

Not for stock calipers, or JCW calipers.

Very pricey.

All I know about them is the company advertises in Grassroots Motorsports.

I haven't heard of anyone using any of their parts.

I like the 2nd BBK you posted Rally, any other pics/specs?

*EDIT*

Took this from the site and translated..

4-piston braking system with a CNC milled, high strength Alusattel (caliper, I assume) and a disc diameter of 310 mm (12.2 inches). This braking system is designed for 17 inch rims.
