The Z32 and R32 GT-R brakes are slightly different, but the mounting points are the same. The difference is in the thickness of the rotor.

If you got a full Z32 setup with calipers and rotors, you could bolt them to your GT-R, or the other way around as well.

With the adaptor bracket designed for the Z32, these brakes will bolt up to a GT-R without problems.

That's cool!

So there's no difference in the offset like the Z33 front Brembos compared to the BNR34 front Brembos??

I'm really tempted

Especially as this setup will cost me in sum the same money as I'd need for my planed R33 Brembo front/rear upgrade/revision

Thanks mate

Leo

I run Evo 6 Brembos with custom brackets and 330x32mm 2pc DBA5000 rotors on the front of my gtst. Stock rear calipers and DBA street series rotors. Pads are Carbotech XP10 all round. I have found these very good on the road and work good when cold and very good on the track. Pad life is excellent and no pad squeel.

Running the D2 8 Pot 330mm kit with DS2500 pads on my 32. Seem to work well enough, even after a few laps round the Nurburgring.

XYZ 355mm front disc and 6pot calipers with Pagid Yellow Endurance pads. Not had any probs on track days at anglsea and oulton park since upgraded (did before had brake fade on standard brembos - running approx 533whp and pretty much standard weight). Cheaper than bigger brake kits Alcons and AP not sure of price as RB used my car as a guinnea pig to see if they were any good. Rod reckons very good for price but like i said not as awesome as Alocns and AP but better than the D2 calipers.

Not done the rears.. but am thinking of it as i have upset brake balance a bit.

AMG 6P front 355 rotor AMG 4P rear 340 rotor (ex AMG SLK55) made by Brembo.
Running Endless CCrg pads. Dunlop Direzza star spec 265/35/18
Well balanced set up stops really smartly and safely.

Hi Glen,

got Rota Grid Drift 18" by 10J ET15.. Also mannaged to get 18"BBS LMS over them too. Tried some cheaper Ultralites but the inside of the alloy wheel is tapered and so it jamed tight against the caliper !

A guy in ireland had the rears done to and said its much better as the brake bias is more even. Mine does dive a little at the front..

I voted others, i use D2 6pot calipers,304mm slotted rotor and braided hose front brakes.and couple it with a cusco brake cylinder stopper. Just need to replace the pads, too much dust. Overall, happy with the set up.will use D2 4pot set for the rear.

I'm running Alcon 6 pot monoblock endurance calipers with 375mm x 36mm rotors on full floating setup, rears are Alcon 4 pot monoblock endurance calipers on 343mm x 32mm rotors. Pads are Competition Friction and are 30mm thick!!!!
All this on a street car that sees the track regularly...

Only have a crappy phone pic of the front...

That's a very nice set up! Although the rear brakes seem a bit OTT, disc size and weight wise. They don't do ALL that much work, on a front engined car.
