      Their new option may not be as good as the Girodisc, but I would expect it to be better that the OEM rotors. Tyrolsport do track a lot so hopefully that is top of their priority.

      I found a link to Tyrol's it's interesting, I wonder who their source is and definitely mentioned that they are working to possibly source some for the TT-RS and would keep everyone posted

      Ah - then I look forward to the reviews when they come out. BTW, just spent the weekend in your city for the F1 race and had a great time. Good food, good music, good people - fun city you have there!

      Neuspeed needs to come up with an option. Their new six piston BBK relies on the stock TTRS rotors, which is the achilles heel of the setup. If you want a setup that uses the TTRS brakes, but different rotors check out the Vagbremtechnic solutions. I have run their kit on the 340mm one-piece and also the 362mm two-piece. Both have been tracked and performed well. I can say the two-piece is better for tracking.

      Nice, glad you had a good time. The weather was unusually nice. We normally have it a lot hotter.

      I was also at the race, big improvement from the previous year.

      Yup agree on Neuspeed. BTW I still haven't figured out which vendor they source the calipers from ?


      I'll have to take a look at vagbremtechnic.

      Not to shamelessly plug it, but if you check out my build thread I have some personal input on the Vagbremtechnic solution.

      To keep everyone up to date who has mentioned it or asked us directly:

      unfortunately due to SEMA, there will be a bit of a delay for an answer for TT-RS replacement rotors. As soon as we can iron out all the details we'll let everyone know.


      As a side note:
      We have achieved some really great braking performance from a B8 S4 kit. For anyone looking for great brake performance at a lower price, and better availability for replacement rotors this too is a good option. I posted up a photo in our facebook post and I currently run this on my own car... you can check it out here - Direct Link to Post

      GiroDisc is now making Rotors for the TTRS. Not in their catalog yet but speedfreaks have them for 1k a pair and you can replace just the iron as well.
      And they come as right and left for proper cooling.

      I have this setup on my R and it is fantastic on the track. Paired with the Raybestos ST-43's that GiroDisc recommended, the brakes work better the more heat you get in them. On my stock setup with EBC Yellow pads I'd have to get on the brakes at about the 275-foot mark at the end of straights. With this setup and Hawk DTC-60 or HT-10 pads, I was able to push that to 250 but got some pad deposits. With the Raybestos pads, I'm down to about 225 and the harder you brake, the better they feel.

      UPDATE FOR EVERYONE CONTACTING US.

      Unfortunately we will not have a replacement rotor for the TT-RS brakes available at this time.
      If we do we will update everyone via our social media page.

      As always feel free to contact us for any braking recommendations whether its O.E, OEM Plus or third party upgrade.

      Thanks for your interest.

      Hello

      Anybody running the ttrs setup over the BBS CH-R's (8.5x19 et48 ) ,found some pitures on the golf v gti ,the guy says it cleares them by 2mm

      As the brakes fit plug and play on the G5/ G6 as G7 , the hub size and clearence should be the same on all 3 models ?

      Cheers

      Now that I live somewhere that snows, I've relegated the Volkswagen Motorsport wheels to winter duty with winter tires. I switched over today to my new summer setup with Neuspeed RSe10 18x8 et45 wheels and they clear the brakes just fine without spacers. I'd say there's a good 5mm between the spokes and the caliper. It's a good setup.

      Looks good on the Neuspeed's.

      For those of you looking for a quality rotor that doesn't suck (the stock TTRS front rotor is a pile of garbage - calipers are fine but the discs suck) - check out Girodisc. 2-pc, lighter than stock, slotted instead of drilled.

      Since this is a good thread full of people running TTRS brakes on the front, I'm curious - have any of you done a rotor change yet? If so, how did you remove the caliper? Did you pull the radially-mounted bolts (the 10mm allen-head style ones going through the calipers), or did you unbolt the entire bracket from the back of the hub?

      Audi does not list a part number anywhere for the allen-head bolts, nor do they give torque specs for them.

      One TTRS owner tried to DIY his brakes and ended up trashing one or both bolts on one side and then had an absolute bear of a time finding replacements. An Audi shop foreman told him that you're not supposed to remove those bolts and that the "right" procedure is to unbolt the entire bracket from the back of the hub... which has bolts torqued to ~148 ft/lbs (200 Newton-meters) that are supposedly single-use as well.

      This TTRS owner ended up having to source Porsche bolts to replace the radial ones he trashed; his new bolts are now giant torx (what Porsche uses) instead of allen / female-hex head (Audi OE)... Porsche part # for reference was 999-073-402-01.

      The caliper bracket bolts are apparently used on a bunch of cars and are N-908-768-02.

      It seems like absolute madness to me to unbolt the brackets just to get to the discs, but why else would Audi not list a P/N or torque specs for the allen bolts??

      You unbolt the caliper from the hub but first you remove the two guides that hold the pads in place. If you remove those bolts you are splitting the caliper In half Wich is not the way to go.
      The owner that destroy the by clearly didn't know how to do a brake job and should of took is car to a garage.

      He didn't remove the axial bolts that go through the caliper (that would be splitting the caliper). He was trying to pull the caliper off so he could swap the rotor. The bolts he trashed were the ones that attach the caliper to the silver / gray bracket in your picture above.

      You have to take the caliper away from the rotor in order to get the rotor off the hub. Your choices are to unbolt the entire bracket from the back (axial-direction bolts, with the heads facing away from you toward the motor), or to remove the caliper from the bracket (radial bolts, with the heads facing the wheel well radius).

      Okay gotcha. Well I would remove the one holding the bracket to the hub. Even tho they are one time use (like every caliper bolts from VW)

      Just a bit. But, the car is a hoot in the snow. And, with the winer tires I was able to scrabble around town where others feared to tread.
