Good luck with the venture.I don't need any brake parts as my car was fitted with Alcons last year but I will be sure to use you when I do.

It was timely seeing the dinitrol on your site as I am going to detail the underside of my car so I have placed an order. Thumb

Serious note...hopefully when I get my next RS...I'll need some rather large
Alcons to replace the ceramics...which will be removed and boxed.....

Hi Nick, do you do anything for a '98 996 c2, stock fitment/size but lightest possible solution?

Sorry no, smallest front Alcon disc is 362mm & you'll need 6-pot callipers too. It's really just for the GT & Turbo 996/7 cars although others are possible given a big enough budget.

Ok, many thanks Nick Thumb really looking at stock sizes as I think losing 200kg+ will mean the brakes perform adequately; just unsprung mass reduction that I was interested in.
Maybe I can give the stock dimensions to AP or Brembo and they may have a rotor/bell combo already off the shelf... Question

Changing to a disc & bell from standard discs for the sake of weight saving is not worth doing imho. The usual reasons for going down that road is reduced distortion due to having a floating disc, cheaper replacements as you are only replacing the disc & (potentially) better disc wear characteristics. Of course, people usually go bigger diameter & better callipers at the same time to maximise braking efficiency.

Unless you go to a PCCB-type setup, the weight saving will be tiny & the cost doesn't justify it.

Magnesium wheels would give you at least an order of magnitude more unsprung weight saving than changing iron discs for a different set of iron discs. How big is your budget? Grin

Already looked into wheels and there is 17.6kg to be saved there with one option I looked into. Then maybe some potential with tyres???

The stock discs are:
Front: 318x28mm and weigh 8.53kg
Rear 299x24mm and weigh 6.49kg

I was hoping to shed 1-2kg per disc but if you don't think there is any potential to, then I'll just have to park the idea.
Saw these and thought there may be some scope for a few more kg's to be removed

PF are good discs but I'd be amazed if you saved even 500g per disc over standard.
