Odd thing to see that I am having a tough time finding Brembo drilled or slotted rotors for my 97 850 T5 Wagon...I am biased on the Brembos as I have them on the wife's Jetta GLX and they do not get any rust on them like the Zim's...anyone know if there are other brake upgrade options for Volvos that do not rust or have corrosion protection...and are slotted or drilled, or both? Gotta make this a Spring project to get the brakes all lined out and pop some Mintex pads on there.

Yes, easternaerospace sells drilled Brembos for volvos. If you look at the feature cars in this website there is an article on a red 850GLT that has OZ rims and Brembo cross drilled rotors! Pretty sweet!!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Holy schmokes...those look insane...what does that setup cost? Nevermind, I saw the link...and that's too pricy for now, I will end up just getting the Brembo's with the Mintex pads...where's the best place to hook up with a good price on the brembo's?<BR><BR>

EA<br><A HREF="http://www.easternaerospace.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.easternaerospace.com</a>/<p>Looks like the cheapist spot you are going to find. The IPD ones are more money, and they are not Brembo, and they are only cross-drilled, not slotted, and drilled.

Re: Brake upgrades...do Brembo's fit Volvo's? (Ski Brick)

ipd used to sell brembos...then they said they got complaints about cracking because the customers didn't properly set them. u can get some from stillen...they're cross-drilled, not slotted.<p>the first set of brembos look like they're on backwards...at least the rotors...they seem like the f50 set...<p>i got some 13" brembos...the lotus package..so it doesn't look like dave's t5-r...no red caliper..just black...and a bit busy on the holes...and the volans do cover up more than his titans...sometimes i wish i got titans <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> ...i'll c if i can get some pics in this weekend. r those brembos dave? they don't look it...

Dude, you KNOW i want to see pics of your lotus package.<p>It's a 993 TT porsche kit, both rotor and caliper both made by brembo exclusively for porsche.<p>So i guess it sort of is, sort of isn't.<p>Initially we were looking at getting the Turbo S-GT2 calipers, but those are 6 pistons and wouldn't fit under 17's. The problem with that is:<br>Clearance and of course, tire patch contact. If you run brakes that big without big tire contact, you'll just eat up tires.

Here's my Brembo cross drilled & slotted rotors I just installed (with the new Koni's hiding in the background). These are from Eurosport.com and zinc plated. Look very sharp!<p> <IMG SRC="http://us.f1.yahoofs.com/users/37ece7a6/bc/Photo+Album/Rotors.jpg?bc2aE39AN3QJghD1" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>

I know Titans would fit, the Volans were the one that couldn't fit on my car. On the back of the spokes, there wasn't any room there....the offset was kinda off I guess.
