Didn't see where the bccr states the points add for going over the 2x rules on calipers/rotors?

 

Anyone have an idea what the points add should be for a Stoptech $2,300 front big brake kit?

My guess would be 5-points/corner based on this:

Quote

4.8.2. Wilwood calipers, up to a maximum of 4 pistons, that exceed the 2X Rule will be valued at 5 pts per caliper.

That being said, I 'thought' somebody on TAC or from Tech had commented that they were looking at modifying this language to include any 4-piston caliper, not just Wilwoods.

We asked Tech this very question for a new build we're working on- Stoptech kit at a similar price point: 50 points.

That doesn't even make any sense. According to 4.8.2 you can run a Wilwood over 2x for 5-points a corner but will be charged "50 points" for the Stoptech kit. 

Just ridiculous...

I'm glad we have a big America car. Our C6 upgrade only cost about $500 and was zero points, and we can go to any parts store for parts... 😄

Wilwood is a series sponsor, Stoptech is not. Many things do not make sense.

 

To be fair, the "kit" is the Stoptech caliper and two-piece rotor combo.

But to assess points based on the brand is just silly. It's beyond not making sense.

I guess I need a bigger budget...

 

'04 325ci $600, 6pt pre-fabbed Rollcage Components cage and install $1,000...

 

I couldn't justify $2,300 for a pair of FRONT calipers and rotors/pads...

Stoptech refused to cooperate once I told them my requested kit would not be going on a car they had not engineered the system for :rolleyes:

 

Kit requested for 2003 350z brembo upgrade to stoptech (our brakes are off the shelf, no mod 350z stuff, on the car 3 years, well tested and balanced but that was not good enough, the conversation was cut short)

 

Will not be calling them back.
