Gotham Racing/Rotary Revolution Group Buy!
author:
No Rotor
date:
December 31, 1969 - 4:00pm
Indianapolis, IN - The Rotary Revolution is proud to offer an exclusive group buy opportunity to paid event attendees from Gotham Racing.

FC & FD Brembo Brake Rotors and Goodridge S/S Brake Lines Package

Brembo Slotted/Cross-Drilled Zinc Plated Rotors

This set of performance rotors is a direct replacement for your stock rotors. They are the same size and fit under your stock calipers and your stock wheels so no other upgrades are necessary to use these rotors.

The rotors are cross-drilled and/or slotted to provide maximum cooling capability and stopping ability, and to minimize brake fade. Front rotors are Brembo, rear rotors are Bradi, which is an Italian company (www.bradi.it) whose rotors offer the same superb quality as Brembo. We are using Bradi rears because Brembo does not manufacture stock-sized rotors for RX7's.

Each rotor has been X-rayed and uses the highest quality metal for construction. Also, please note that these rotors have been Zinc Plated to prevent rust and give the rotors a nice platinum appearance.

Also, please note: You have the choice of having your rotors cross-drilled, slotted, or both. Additionally, you can choose between straight slots and curved slots.


Goodridge Stainless Steel Brakeline Kit

These race-bred brakelines are constructed from the finest quality hose, consisting of a PTFE inner and stainless steel overbraid. All 4 brake lines, installation hardware, and instructions are included. Stainless steel brake lines do several things to improve your stopping distance: they prevent heat build up, they prevent condensation, they eliminate the possibility of hose cracking or bursting, and they allow maximum flow of pressure to the brake calipers when the brake pedal is depressed. A perfect compliment to Brembo cross-drilled and slotted rotors and performance brake pads.

Benefits include:
o Eliminates sponginess under heavy braking
o Increases braking efficiency
o Abrasion and corrosion resistant
o Legal for use on any public road
o Direct "bolt-on" replacement kit
o And best of all, this product is guaranteed by the manufacturer FOREVER!

Group buy pricing is RESTRICTED to paid and registered attendees. Gotham Racing will either ship these (added cost) or deliver them to you at the event with no added shipping charges!

Price breaks are:
1 to 5 sets:
6 to 10 sets:
11 to 15 sets:
16 sets and up

So, for every set sold that reaches a new price break, your cost will go down!

Registered and paid members will receive a separate email containing these unbelievable prices, I can tell you that it could be more than $160 off the retail price if 16 or more sets are sold.
