Here are the specs on our kit, which we've called the "WGP Apex CCM Brake Kit"

Endless Front and Rear Brake Pads MA45B (W007) for track use, W008 for street use, optional Pagid RSX1 or RS29 pads
Endless Brake Fluid
Custom CNC Machined Front and Rear Rotor Hats (retains use of rear parking brake)
Custom CNC Machined 5mm Caliper Relocation Brackets (For 09-11 CBA)
Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Machined Calipers Core Exchange Available
Modified Rear Caliper Backing Plates Core Exchange Available

Optional (but RECOMMENDED FOR CIRCUIT USE) - Revosport Active Cooling Carbon Fiber Front Lip w/ Rotor Backing Plates and Ductwork

Total Price for the kit : USD $11,150 w/o the Revosport Lip.

We can ship these with the Rotors assembled onto the new hats to ensure that they are torque'd to spec for a $150 ground shipping fee.

Installation support is available.

We can also install the upgrade at our shop in Wallingford, CT for anyone local or anyone who wants to make the drive for a labor charge of 5 hours @ $95/hour!

Special thanks to DUTCH for pioneering the idea for the kit!

We are currently accepting orders for our next batch of 10 kits, to be available in 2-3 weeks.

We've decided to stop offering the carbon brake cooling ducts because our testing has shown they make no difference in the cooling of the rotors.

I used to think this kit was a bit hackish, but after driving 7racer's GT-R I gotta say it was very impressive with the Endless W007 pads. Very responsive, great pedal feel, virtually no noise, and look fantastic. Based on his track testing it seems to be extremely effective too. Maybe someday I will get a chance to punish these on a racetrack... lol

I will say that the kit has been great.  I have had issues with mostly the install as the fitment in my 09 was a bare.  Thank fully Jotech did all the hard work but when I talked to the tech, he said that almost every part he had to "massage" a bit.

 

Might be easier on the DBAs but with those with 09, be prepared to "make it work"

also, getting some suspension done to the car and now that my cooling is doing great and the temps here in Texas are dropping, plan to finally stop running in low boost and see if I can work these brakes a bit harder!

Very nice man.  Sounds like you have a great kit once installed.  

 

I've heard similar install issues with other people so I had to pass on it.  Doug maybe you can somehow make everything more plug and play? Cuz the truth is it's far from plug and play from what I hear.  No offense.  Just trying to give a suggestion to make it fit right from the start.

The nature of the beast when installing bigger than oem components is that you need to modify things... To make a "plug and play" solution would mean not using the ZR1 rotors anymore...

We've gotten it down to the point where we can install these kits in under 4 hours. We modify the backing plates in place, and the caliper machine work costs us less than $200...

From customer feedback we've also begun development of a version2.0 kit that will improve some of the various clearances and improve the kits performance!
