Default RB400 & RB600 Series???

I see the RB400 & RB600 series brakes mentioned in your ET pad announcement. What are these, and when will they be available?

Will the RB400 be made for the 350z (03-05) and fit under the stock wheels?
Overall, will the RB400/600 replace the current lineup?

Yes, all RB400 series will have the same offset including the current 4 pot caliper we are offering and will fit under 17" wheel.

RB400 series will be our 4 piston calipers with different piston bore sizes set up i.e. RB425 (redesigned based on current 4 pot) and RB430 and RB440 (new design using heavier duty pad). all Up to 32mm rotor.

RB600 series is our newly designed 6 piton calipers which has the same offset as our current 6 piston caliper but with compact body and also can fit under 17" wheel, but for thicker rotors (up to 34mm)

Our current 6 piston caliper will be re-designed to become 8 piston caliper series.

With this re-line up of our calipers, RB shall become more competitive and capable in serving the performance brake industry.

Will the RB425 be the same price as the current 4 pot, or have you been able to realize some sort of manufacturing or other efficiencies that have allowed you to reduce prices across the entire new product line?

The price will be similar to what we are offering now on four piston caliper kits. The caliper production involves a lot of machining, assembly and testing procedure and is not a typical volume/price item.

Also the aluminum material price has increased significantly so it?s not easy to sell at the same price w/o reflecting the cost increase for long.
