if were talking about the fsvt 300mm rotors then shouldnt the fsvt spare be made to fit the 300mm rotors on that very car? if the csvt spare doesnt fit, the fsvt has got to be the next alternate

Just move a good wheel/tire from the rear and put it onto the front, then put the spare on the rear. Problem solved and it would be smarter to have the full size tire on the drive and/or turning wheels.


As far as the brakes, we just got a second test set installed on the fronts in the last few weeks in order to get independent testing impressions. A few small changes needed to be made to the fronts to improve the fit.

Just FYI, at this time I am ONLY going to work on this if/when Stazi gets his project done and decides there is enough interest to make a go of it. In the meantime, we'll let BigJim finish testing out his fronts and see what kind of feedback he gives in addition to the fitment corrections he recently sent me.
