Looking forward to see the progress on this build. I'm sure it will be outstanding as usual. Any photos of the mini tub by chance?

I just got my Finspeed wheels for mock up and my Spring Car Party.

I like the new design!

I went with KORE3 brakes on my car for the OEM reasons stated above.



Any chance of a production run of modified ZL1 rotor hats in the future should these prove your theory Mark?


Yes Iíll get a chance to test this next year.

Yes and I will still need to add brake cooling ducts. With my projected power I'm sure it will need it.

LOVE the non-Forgeline set up! (Nothing against Forgeline - just awesome to see something new.)

And it looks painted to me!

Glad to see another Camaro from you Mark. I loved the blazer you just did for an all day/everyday driver. 900 is amazing from a crate. That raises the bar again in itself. Appreciate all your contributions to the site and you taking the time to post this for us.
And I spotted the GrandPrix quickly as well. My mom bought one new in 84í. It was an awful nice car at that time.

Very great info on the brakes your a world of info. What Diff are you going to run in this car? I just had one go with 700 miles on it and I know you beat on your cars. Ford 9 from DSE and a eaton its DONE! I didn't even get to work on it. Found broken parts and a washer in the bottom. Cant wait to see this LT5 push this car around the track .

To get better brake performance with out all the extra complexity of big cooling ducts you can add Thermal Mass (Iron Rotors).

I wanted to swap the Carbon Rotors on Jackass to Iron. The new CTS-V and ZL1 use a 390 mm iron rotor that is the same thickness as a 393 mm Carbon Ceramic rotor. The 3 mm delta is taken up by the pad.

OK easy Iíll swap the 390 mm iron rotors on Jackass. Issue is the offset on the CTS-V and ZL1 hat is different. No problem I have friends with CNC machining centers that make gun parts. I was informed the tolerances on my brake hats are tighter then gun parts.

So I got some ZL1 Rotors and added my custom hats.

To recap. Stock C6 ZR1 calipers, 390 mm Gen 6 ZL1 Rotors and custom hats. The ZR1 calipers use the same brake pad shape for Carbon Ceramic and Iron Rotors.

I had all this stuff laying around so Iím going to try it.

It will be easier to buy a Brembo kit.
