rear brake, 254mm rotor x 280mm rotor

Hi all,

Is there any benefit changing the stock rear brake rotor (advance trac) of 254mm to the 280mm rotor from SVT ?

IMHO - Not particularly.

You'd need the front SVT brakes first, and "track day" type use, B4 the difference in REAR rotor size would come into play at all....

Cheers!

yeah what he said

Other than looks I dont see a benefit. Rears do so little work vs the fronts, plus theyre both solid rotors so no upgrade there. and both will fit under a 15" wheel which is nice
