X2 on that. If Jason doesn't bring back his BBK, I plan to machine one once I finish school and I'll do a how to on the entire process from manufacture to install.

I thought that he said he wouldn't produce these anymore as well ... but in a later post i believe he said he could do 3 sets at a time as long as they were pre-paid for. but like the other guys have already said, i doesn't hurt to ask.

I am sure plenty of people would really love that! I need to go through my pics to try and put something together if I can figure out where they are, I have too many pics scattered all over....

Yeah, I was having a friend who worked at a machine shop make the parts for me, I would like to just get a batch made locally and just have them on hand, however the cost was far more than I expected and needed to get a batch of 10 made at once to be cost effective anywhere in my area.

But still need to check into more shops to see what I can find, gotta be something more affordable than the other places I found last year.

I would really like to make a bunch and just be able to sell them whenever people want one...

Yep. he did. It used some rotors from another application that needed to be redrilled to our lug pattern, but I dont really know all the details on what calipers, etc. But I know he had a kit that was less money as an option as long as having the get the rotors redrilled isnt a major hassle for you, or maybe have a set already redrilled for when you need them so no down time? So probably not too bad.

Mine, if I can produce more, uses all Willwood components that can be replaced without modification and can be ordered from Summit racing pretty much next day if you need pads, or new rotors. I just have the cheaper rotors (standard vented, no slots) on my setup still, and it will stop my truck just fine and I have a V8 under the hood. Or at least it will stop the tires even if the truck is still moving, so its more than enough stopping power for our vehicles.

But It all comes down to availability, if I dont have any kits on hand then his kit is the way to go, lol. I am going to check into some more shops in the next couple of weeks and see if I can find another machinist that is more affordable than the previous.

I stopped making them due to the everything being so difficult at the time, but I will see what I can do, I am sure I could sell quite a few if I actually tried to market them, which I really didnt do too much of back then. I had lots of interest, but when I was ready to start making them very few people were ready to purchase, which is understandable since money doesnt grow on trees and the economy isnt exactly flourishing at the moment....just the way it goes.

I wanna keep you guys all dialed in if I can.

Jason,

You made your kit obtainable for the average Joe because they didn't have to drop a G all in one shot.

I bought your bracket adapters, then took my time sourcing the rotors, calipers and pads..

I really do appreciate it!

Thanks!
