There are more G35 guys who are running them right now, they seem to be very satisfied with the overall performance over the stock setup. Once the Nissan kits become readily avialable, I'm sure you'll see more feedback from 350Z guys.

They are coming in slowly, most kits will be shipping on March 24th for those who ordered. We are getting most of them on that day

Couple of quick questions...

If it uses the stock OEM pads then all it is doing is using more rotor surface to keep down heat right?

What size rotors are the stock Brembo kits?

What is the difference between a 2 piece rotor vs. a 1 piece rotor (performance and longevity wise)?

If it uses the stock OEM pad does that mean we will still get the same amount of brake dust?

With the long waiting list, backorders, and heat rising here in AZ, we won't be doing any track tests for a couple months. I have recommended that customers who already have the kits post of their experience. Sorry, Nissan cannot keep up with demand, so we have not had to chance to keep a set for ourselves.

Correct, but we have Hawk Pads on the way, so HPS pads FTW to keep dust down

What size rotors are the stock Brembo kits? 12.75

What is the difference between a 2 piece rotor vs. a 1 piece rotor (performance and longevity wise)?

Cooling, Performance, Longevity, and Looks

If it uses the stock OEM pad does that mean we will still get the same amount of brake dust?

Yup Same, but I would recommend Hawk HPS pads to keep that down. They will be available Next week.

Well then I am in... Shoot me an email if you would when the 2 piece rotors and HPS pads are ready to go for my 03. I will take them off your hands as soon as you can get them in.

Have an estimate on the price of the 2 piece rotors?
