2 Piece Rear Rotors!!!

As the title says. If you're interested in them start posting up here and over at the RB forums

http://forums.racingbrake.com/showthread.php?t=985

To quote from there:
"Follow to our release of front two piece rotor and caliper rebuild kit in this thread, we were constantly requested to make the matching rear two piece available.

We have evaluated the possibility and found out although it can be done but would require to trim the stock brake pad about 5mm at the bottom to clear the mounting hardware. Same modification to the rear pad like E46 M3.

This was constrained to accommodate the rear brake drum (emergency brake) as stock.

Don't be fooled by some irresponsible companies who may falsely claim they can make light weight rear two piece rotors w/o mentioning of such a modification, if you check into it you will find out it is done at the cost of deleting the e-brake. Because those aluminum hats can't resist to the heat generated from braking or parking (in case you forgot to release the hand brake)

We can confirm that this will not impair the integrity nor safety of your car. If you think this is acceptable and can work your own pad modification, you can sign up here.

Once we have 10 people committed to order, we will then make them available."
