Kalim finally has new sig! Probably old news but whatever

Just a curiosity question, Dave was saying that the 135i caliper bracket is too big for the 330 rotors and the pads overhang the rotor...well why can't he just run 135i rotors?

That so? I didn't get a chance to look that closely. The 135i rotors would work if the bracket is sized for them. Ideally you want the pad to be inset ~2mm from the edge of the rotor.

He was saying that he was planning on running the other 135i kit with the OEM bracket. He has the ECS kit and another OEM 135i kit with the standard bracket form the 1-series. The latter has the pads overhanging the edge of the rotor by a few mm. So why not just run a 135i rotor instead of machining the bracket? Is it possible?

Yes, I remember he was hoarding ALL THE BRAKES!

He'd have to check the caliper for centering on the 135i rotor axially with the aftermarket bracket. I'd guess that aftermarket bracket still brings the caliper in radially, too, so maybe the 135i rotors won't clear in that direction.

I'm not talking about his ECS kit. I'm talking about the other set that he plans to put on the paddy wagon. Do you mean compare the two brackets?

I'm jw if he can put the 135i brakes on (the non-ECS kit) without modification if he uses a 135i rotor. And can you use a 135i rotor? The rotor diameter for the 135i is slightly larger, which means without modification of the caliper bracket, the calipers will be sitting too far out on the rotor. To fix that, couldn't you use a 135i rotor versus having the bracket machined?

Oh, ok. Got it. Yes, compare the brackets. 135i rotors might still fit over the hubs just fine, so it'd just be a matter of measuring to see how they line up.
I think if the caliper sits farther out with the OEM brackets, wheel barrel clearance might be an issue. Would also have to be checked.

Sorry, started replying to PMs and my PM box got full. Started clearing it, then I passed out.
I'll take a look in a bit.
