Anyone using the new 405 Brembo rotors? Wondering if they have any real advantages over the AP J hooks ?? Cost 1K more.

I have quite a few customers using them. So far they are absolutely in LOVE with them. I had a customer in California this spring actually ship his car to Germany and run the 'Ring on these, and he said that they performed fantastic. Another guy from CA as well took them out on a local track (I cant remember which one, I think Auto Club?) and gave me similar feedback, they were awesome.
Obviously the larger size has its' benefits, longer torque arm, more mass to dissipate heat, and my contact there tells me the hatch design on the rotors are very carefully engineered to aid in the brake pad grab and release characteristics.
Do you know Mike Deeter stationed out in JP? He is running this setup from me on his car, although I'm not sure if his build is complete yet. He got in on the program I was running this Spring for the setup. I was actually going to offer up 2 more spots in the program if your seriously considering.
Here is a picture of me comparing my hand to them lol... You don't really realize just how big 405mm is until you hold it in your hand.
Remember you're getting the hats and the adapters for that extra 1K. After that, costs may be less.
Also if costs are an issue, I'd suggest the regular slotted to preserve pad life, rather than the complex slots above - these are for bite not longevity. Straight slots last the longest.
I would bet these would have few advantages over the AP's that were made for the CBA and DBA with the extra vanes. But these are Brembo's - high high quality casting.
