I'm not sure with the sporadic interest... it's not looking good at this stage. It's been dragging a long time and of the people that have expressed interest over the last however many months, the chances of people actually putting down money in numbers is looking pretty slim.

If you guys want a handful of kits we can do an extremely tiny 5 production kit run but it would add $250-400 to the cost minimum. If no one wants brakes no one wants brakes... not sure what else to say. We've taken a stab at a number of performance parts here that we have and love on our own car, only to find that people only seem to want some basic brake pads or slotted stock rotors... the RX8 community seems more focused on maintenance than performance modifications IMHO. Bit confused as performance is really all we do over in the FD world

I think you've hit the nail on the head - IME the FD crowd is a lot more performance oriented than the RX8 crowd. I've owned both and my FD wasn't quite as stock as my current RX8 is .

Just stumbled across this thread and that is a amazing price for a BBK, I personally have the stoptech kit and so far it has been more than capable of my driving abilities even on the track. I believe you will find that more younger owners now own these cars and the forums are not taken advantage of like the good ole days. Social media is where you will find them but another challenge you may face is getting their attention may take a different approach. I wish there was great priced opportunities like this when I was building the car haha.

i posted in the other threads but i would definitely be in for this if we do it soon... i desperately need new pads and rotors but if a bbk is <1500 then i'll jump on that.

We're working on a caliper upgrade to go over the stock rotor up front, as it seems that might be a better fit for some of the guys that aren't ready for a BBK upgrade.

We're working to make the brackets reverse compatible with the thicker 325x32 mm rotor as we've already got these rotors and hats in stock from the FD RX7... and brake lines for the RX8 Wilwood setup complete... so brackets are all that's left at this point. It just has to be right for the community... and the BBK option seems to be a bit beyond what the average RX8 owner needs, so we're trying to put together a few options.

-Heath

[email protected] for more info, or post in here... we'll try to check in every few days.

We're back at it... looking for interest once again if you guy want a BBK for the 8. We've got quite a few NC guys on board for a smaller version. If there's no interest we'll make it anyway but the price will be significantly higher 1600 vs 1275. We need a minimum of 10 people. Sign up if you're actually interested in buying one

Hey Brettus,

I believe the group-buy is going for $1,275. The $1,600 is without the group-buy.
