I think he is refering to the title of the thread "300mm x 280mm" brake upgrade... that would be one big rotor!

Won't need wheels I guess. LOL
It fills up the stock hardware completely and near stock harware pretty well. After going through the measurements on the FSVT wheels I had it ended up that I couldn't keep those rims and still get one of your nice brake kits unless I ended up with just the similar sized 12" rotors with the high dollar calipers. To me it wasn't worth an extra $1000 over FSVT brakes to keep my current rims and get better brakes. So it was either shell out $1800 to convert over to yours, or this.
So economics took over at that point.
For me to have gotten your larger rotors I'd have had to add another $1000 just for an average set of rims and tires. I admit I wasn't about to put in another $3K to the car when just the FSVT upgrade would suffice as I only needed a moderate increase in breaking performance.
