Front kit only

4 pot caliper

Clears the VOLK RE30's nicely.

330mm Slotted 2pc rotors. Aluminum centre hats.

Reduces unsprung weight by 9lbs per corner!!!

Good Lord you're putting a lot of goodies on your car! :shocked:

Now all you need is a turbo... so you can actually make use of your BBK! :approve:

What are you gonna do for the back?

Nice!


How come my stock rotors look like sh!t after less than a year of usage, all covered in crap. Is there anything that would clean rotors so they're nice and shiny again, short of having them refinished?

thanks! they stop well too!

Crester, before I even touch boost, I wanted a car that can brake & turn well. On most typical circuits, most of your time is spent in the corners, or approaching corners.

Any fool can step on a pedal and make a car go fast. But its much more fun when I can compete w/ a relatively stock powerplant and lay down the law w/ some competitive times.

Lexusecutive, you must be a Texan at heart. Everything is BIG with you! Time for Digger to jump in with a dry humorous remark and maybe a photo. ;)

I like them. They look very Hot.

...was going to say something about unsprung weight from the logo but i do not want to be known for sarcasm.

Rep for the 4 pots with aluminum hats!

Digger... you have a point... he's going thru all this effort to lighten his car. Then he cancels out all his effort by putting that 500lb Lexus badge on the front! :blush:

I know anybody can press the gas pedal... but it's still fun to have plenty of power. :)

What else is there for you to do besides boost now anyways? You can do underbody bracing... trunk bracing... rear brake upgrade... and...? Looks like a powerplant upgrade is next for you! :cool:

I personally love Digger's comments lol. Crack me up.

Nice brake setup. Fills the 17s nicely.

Looks like an awesome setup there!! How much would just the front kit cost around?

the logo is sprung weight. And it's actually an aero mod. Tunnel tests are showing that I'm gaining 0.0001 Cd and reducing turbulent vorticies around my washer nozzles with the bigger logo vs the smaller logo. However, flow rate to my rad is reduced by 0.089% cfm's which is causing spikes in water temps only when braking now with the ROTORA's over stock.

The caps are GT caps. Mine specifically are the GT-high. Volk specifies that this cap only fits:

GT-AV, GT-V, GT-7, GT-U, GT-C, GT-N, GTS, GTM, GTF, RE30, CE28NF, CE28N (16-19inches), TE37CUP, TE37(19" only)

So unless you ahve TE37CUP's or 19" TE37's.....this cap won't fit.
