Special thanks go out to certain members of the B/D-body community for their support and cooperation in the development of this product...you folks know who you are.

That quote is worth its weight in gold.

Those look beefy, congradulations guys on getting something like this out there. Will these mount the earlier rotors you've been pining over Bill or are the C5 rotors thicker?

I think it will be eventually possible for this hub to be used for a direct-fit replacement HD slip-on 12" x 1.25" rotor--but the correct rotor doesn't exist--yet. It's being pursued, and will take some time....you'll hear more about it at the appropriate time. At least I hope so!

CTS-V clampers to go with all the C5 goodness.
and a linky for pad info;

<looking for nice closeup of XLR calipers>

MAGS--Yes they can, but the rotors will need to be machined with the larger center bore and 5x5 pattern.

Were you looking for a 4.75" pattern? I would think they (KORE3) might offer that on a limited run, but the hub OD will probably not be reduced from 3.060--these are made with more material because the B/D cars are heavier.

James, the XLRv caliper, same as C6 PBR 2-piston, with a different paint job, is viewable here:

doh, sometimes I think my brain is toast. Dunno how I went off on that tangent, maybe it was the Brembos ;) Could it be living with two women ?
Bandwidth hungry links taken out.

Bill have you had one of these in your hand yet ? Just wondering what you thought. Looks dang good in the photo. Now I need to see you about my rear c5 set up :D I may get this done before Indy WOO-HOO! Tobin sent an email that there will be a core charge on the reluctor rings.... so guys start saving your old rotors! :cool:

No, not yet, but that will change.

I can tell you that the standard KORE3 hubs for all other GM applications are 0.690" thick at the wheel mounting flange and this HD version is a full 1.00" thick. These are definitely "ruggedized", with roughly 20% more material overall.

I'll have a pair in my future plans for the Impala...working on another brake system "upgrade"...

Think there will be enough thickness to machine the inner wheel bearing area larger for the BR5 bearing?

Thanks,

Sleeper, that's one I can't answer--I suggest you have a conversation with KORE3.

The question in what you're considering that comes to my mind is what is the difference in distance between the inner & outer bearings on the knuckle for your application and the B-body knuckle? Even if there IS enough material to install the BR5, is the spindle (possibly) too long?

Does this company also make the rear brake conversion brackets? Also what does it cost to have your rotor machined to fit the hubs?

MAGS--they do make C5 rear conversion brackets, but the kit does not retain the park brake. I don't know if the KORE3 kit will fit the B-body. I suggest you contact them, or check it out on their website.

As far as rotor machining, I'd say in the $20-$30 range, maybe as little as $35 a pair, but it will vary by location, shop rate, etc. I could be way off...

If you're interested in what else is available for the rear brakes (what I'm using), contact me by PM or e-mail.

Do you "need" that 383 or deep gears? And how many wagons can you drive at one time, anyway???
