We have some experience with brake rotors so, I've come to ask if people would be interested in a 6th Element Engineered rotor paired up with a nice pad like Hawk or EBC?

Prices would be pretty tame, maybe in the neighborhood of $150/pair front and $110/pair rear for a slightly better OEM rotor and about $200/pair front $125/pair rear for a track ready but street friendly rotor.
We could pair those up with a popular brake pad for a nice kit.

Suggestions welcome!

I can actually vouch that our brakes are pretty good stock. It's the pads that suck after you over heat them. I have done several canyon runs and even did a road course session on them and heated them so bad you can smell the brakes and I am still on them at 22k miles lol. I will be switching to better rotors and pads soon through my clubs sponsor.

If 6th can make good replacements for this car they would sell for sure!

Once the stock replacement rotors and pads are complete what about a set of 330 mm rotors and brackets to bolt on a 4 piston caliper (like the one from a Genesis that costs $90). Haven't compared the cylinder volume for hydraulic ratio yet but I could if it was a consideration. You would be the first to offer a big brake kit for $500 lol.

The geni brembo can fit with a bracket ? I though they tried already and failed . 90$ dealer told me way more than that lol . I was going to buy a geni and the tech said get the regular geni not the track because the brembo was ridiculously expensive .
But I think if they did sell a big brake setup through the site it would be awesome ! The stock is good with a minor upgrade but once more power comes to play we may deffinately need something bigger NSSR has a big brake kit front and rear for the cars but it's impossible to get here and the one dealer is always sold out . Wildwood can make a kit for any car as long as the specs are given for what's needed . Most tuners will go with them or a brembo kit ordered and sold through their websites . I personally wouldn't know how to set up a one off custom and leave it to the pros lol . It's too critical a tune for a novice to mess with

Not the Brembo, the Genesis sedan comes with an aluminum 4 piston caliper OEM that is stamped KIA Hyundai so more than likely it is used on the K900 also and those can be purchased for $90. When it comes to hydraulics if the ratio is right it doesn't matter if it says Brembo or not.

i like the idea of you make rotors.. I just think it could be risky. any safety related part is always a gamble no matter how well the part is made.. or how air tight the legal disclaimer is.. I would love to see you corner the market on a top level Full cat back stainless steel exhaust for the Koup and Forte 5.. you would clean up.. or market for our car is a little backwards.. as we are getting fully built blocks and turbo upgrades from the veloster market.. but no one is making a full exhaust.. except jun bl.. and that only fits the koupe. evilla has a race part. with one exhaust tip. . make a Full exhaust duel tipped v bands. a nice bolt on. with a mellow tone. make it happen
