    Exactly why I never even contemplated it until now. One thing I like to KNOW is working, are brakes. I don't need to have unforeseen issues with them.

    2009.5 MSM GXP 500ish N/A RWHP. Mods include but aren't limited to: Texas Speed 418 (6.8L) fully forged held together with ARP from top to bottom, PRC 255cc heads, Rick Crawford intake plenum, TB port, polish and tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI w/LS7 MAF, Kooks 1-7/8" headers wrapped with DEI, Corsa catless system, Circle D 3200 Stall, 3.45 final drive, BMR's complete street bushing kit and sway bars, Eibach Pro Kit, G-Force Axles, running on staggered VMR 710's with Bridgestone RE11 rubber. HSV triple gauge pack with Calais smokers kit mod, V6 tails, debadge/rebadge, V6 door handles, AU black door trim, Maverick Man under hood strut covers, & washer and bolt kit, fully corrected paint thanks to Adams Polishes and my hard work. Built with reliability in mind with some power for those times when you need to pass or go over a big hill. Just a poser, not a racer!

    So is this a smaller diameter rotor? The bracket was to compensate for the larger diameter rotor was it not?
    Also guessing this will fit the e-brake because the inner hub is the correct diameter now as well?

    This rotor is 5mm smaller in diameter, 1/10 inch smaller radius.. The adapter bracket's biggest dimensional change was to space the caliper further outboard almost 1/2 inch. The SS rotor will be slightly smaller in diameter and have the rotor faces properly located to not need the adapter's 1/2 inch step out.

    Not to mention more clearance for wheels.
    The bracket made the Caliper stick out further then the front.

    I got the hsv rotor for that reason and the rotor will last the life of my car. And who cares you have to shave the pad a bit.

    Just waiting for GM to release them. I'm guessing it might be a little longer since they are not even building the 2015 SS yet.

    So will this rotor work with the current rear Brembo & bracket setup? I would like to go this route instead of the custom brake shoes

    With these new rotors, you remove the rear bracket. It will no longer be needed
