So, where can I buy those? Carbotech?
These are not from HardBrakes. I looked at theirs but they didnít have an option for buying the rear 1347 shims.

I got both front and rear. Let me contact my source to see if heís willing. The price (including international shipping) was reasonable.

Just spoke to Pat at One Performance. You can contact him via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ONEPerformance.Huntsville/

Or otherwise [email protected] Tell him Elon sent you. I have had nothing but great products from him. Iíve purchased the Enkei NT03RR race wheels, Project Kics lug nuts, and now the Ti shims through him.

Do those actually have an image cut in them so that heat will go right through the center?

Be careful with shims as this means that your pads and rotors will retain more heat. I used a set of these on my '09 STI and the pads got quite a bit hotter and chunked a bit.

However, they may help the life of the rubber seals on your pistons. How important are those seals anyway? Mine are melted pretty well.

This.

I have the hard brake ones in 1mm. I also still have silver calipers (front and rear) but the pads and rotors get much hotter. Highly recommend installing cooling ducts up front and watching out for pad fade, maybe even going up a pad level

**EDIT** I see you already have the xp12/10 combo, so you should be OK. I have xp10/8 and the pads DEFINITELY overheat with the titanium shims, I will be going 12/10 for my next pads

I have Z1/Stillen brake ducts and Z1 2pc. rotors with XP12/10 pads and the rotors still got hot enough to temporarily turn red on the inner vanes and melt off some of the paint on the inside of the rotor.

I was amazed how much more I like the Carbotech pads compared to my Hawk DTC-60's that I have been swearing by for years. The Carbotechs seem to last longer and wear the rotors less on the same track. Completely opposite experience to when I used Carbotech pads on a WRX about 10-15 years ago and they got too hot and started chunking.

Guys,

Unfortunately my Infiniti track days are over and I am returning my car to stock. I'll be taking the parts off over the next couple weeks, but thought I'd give this thread a heads up before I make a general for sale thread once parts are off. Happy to do a package price if you want more than one or several items:

- Z1 2 piece rotors front and rear
- Carbotech Xp8/10 pads ~50%
- Titanium heat shield plates for front pads
- Stillen brake cooling ducts
- ARP wheel studs
- kw v3 with ~10,000miles
- SPL upper front and lower rear control arms
- Camber bolts in rear
- Hotchkis front sway bar
- setrab 32 row oil cooler with sandwich adapter
- new z1 oil pan spacer
- z1 silicon intake hoses with K&N drop in filters
- 18x9.5 Enkei RPF1 in black with 18 month old Maxxis RC-1 ~50% tread left

Darn it. Are going back to Miata? Or you're done tracking your daily?

Sorry to hear that man. But maybe I can help with your part out. What can you tell me about your Z1 2pc. rear rotors (and I just bought fronts- doh!), KW V3 coilovers, SPL control arms, and Z1 oil pan spacer?
