      Are you going to run Haldex or a Synchro rear end?

      less pain in the a$$, better, runing E85 and I allways used standalone, since the first C-2 chip came out i gave up on chip tuning or OEM computer systems. questions is how much $$ will take to make 700AWHP converting it to ME7 and tuning it RIGHT for E85 on a vr6???

      232x9 is the smaller rotor size. Do you have the smaller calipers?

      I told him via PM months ago what he needs. He disregarded what I said and started mentioning looking for parts off of other cars. That's when I stop. I greatly dislike when people that ask for advice, but don't listen to the answers they get. I have no problem with people doing things their own way, but don't waste my time, knowledge or experience in the process.

      They aren't smaller, they are just single disk instead of vented. They save 10 pounds. (5 less each side)

      I've emptied my PM boxes, so I don't have record, but I recall more than what you are showing there.

      ________POWERDUB________

      ^^^^^^for your info, i ordered 1 set of the Audi TT rear solid rotors and the don't
      FIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTT That's how much help you were, now they just seat here, hat on the rotor are small to go over the hub and also hat is too long, even if it goes over it will hit the ABS ring in the back.

      *hub 127MM round
      *rotor hat 125MM
      *hat 33MM dip inside
      *but hub clerance before it hits the ABS ring is only 28MM

      *so before you say sh*t about people here, why don't you let them know that you only gave
      * H A L F * of the info and may be it's why i couldn't find it, if you're thinking i'm 18 and driving around with airbags you're wrong, i'm married for 15 years with son, so i don't see the reason i would be here wasting yours or anybudys time, maybe you're having a bad day, who knows....

      sorry but i still lost on this Audi TT brakes, i just don't want to pay for the wrong set.

      could you just let me know if it is from any Audi TT, or it have to be quattro (AWD) one , any year?

      sorry for taking your time and thank you again

      can you GTFO now? You're ruining our nice mk4 R32 forum. Kthxbye

      Actually, he's not. He has a valid question and obviously has more than average knowledge, but can't find this specific answer. Just from the information presented:
      1) He was given an initial answer
      2) Based on that information, he ordered parts that don't actually fit the application
      3) He's back trying to find a different/correct answer

      I don't see the problem here. Instead of contributing he's been given crap about completely irrelevant issues (ME7). And let's face it, without placing blame, we all know Josh/PD gets busy with IRL stuff and falls off the map for a bit. We all do. Give the dude the benefit of the doubt before crapping down his throat just because he's not posting about a MOAR LOW AIRBAG LOL or "staggered wheel" thread.

      /soapbox

      All my measurements and brake layout stuff is at work and I haven't slept all day. Off the top of my head look into 20th AE or Jetta GLI/GLX rears. I think I saw someone even use MkIII Golf VR6 rotors before too. I think they're smaller but like I said I have nothing in front of me and I need to go to bed.

      But he is using parts from our drivetrain and no one posts in the 3.2l forum anymore. I didn't see him mention the size of wheel he's running, you should have no issue fitting a 16 inch wheel over those rear calipers/rotors.

      ^^^^^I'm using 17'' wheels so i won't have any problems with the calliper's size, I got help from someone and was guided on the right direction.


      * I don't come to the R32 forum much, I'm more on the forced induction or drag, I always helped people here on vortex, I never got treated like this before on vw vortex, i can't blame the R32 forum just because of 1-2 guys, but what i don't understand is how can some civilized people be so ignorant, maybe there is a reason why some others cars's sites are so far ahead of us, i'm sorry if some how i insulted anyone, thank you for the ones that tryed to help me out.

      Somehow you possess the knowledge(or money...or both) to do a build like yours but get stumped on downgrading brake rotors? That is just plain silly.

      ^^^^^^^^^as smart as you sound to be, you should have an idea what a rotation mass/inertia is, this is not a daily drive and this car will be much lighter than a R32, so there is no reason to add a 12.3'' or 13'' brake kit to it. a good brake pads set, brake lines and good brake fluid will do the trick.

      the parts that fit should be from an mk1 tt (up til 2006). The came with 4 different brake setups (fwd 1.8t, 180hp quattro, 225hp quattro, vr6 quattro) (source: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...44-Audi-TT-FAQ) on two different drive trains (FWD, AWD)

      I think the reason why the disks you got didn't fit was cause it's from the FWD tt. what you need is solid rears off an audi tt with quattro since they share the same suspension as the Rs.

      According to the FAQ, "180q (12.3"/9.4", vented front/solid rear)" 180hp quattro brakes is what you're looking to get instead of the wrong "FWD (12.3"/9.1", solid)" which you bought.

      hope this helps!
