What size rotor you have there?? 12"? I would like to run at least a 13" rotor but I also have the ATS spindles.

I'm selling the house and buying the new one soon. Then building my nicer garage about double the size I have now. I will buy a lift for sure this time, I'm done crawling on the floor!

If you plan to run the C5 (C6/GTO should be the same size essentially IIRC) calipers with the 13” rotors you should be fine, per Year One when fitting the template from Kore 3 and also mondotti’s first hand experience. The only question is if the Year One wheels changed something over the years in how they are made that isn’t letting them clear. Marcus had experience where they didn’t, Year One as of last week says it works, we hopefully get confirmation from Year One that nothing, or nothing that physically changed on the wheels, to prevent them from working together.

If you already have ATS spindles, do you have the 17” N90’s too?

I bought mine before they were released on a pre order special. So I have the very first production run made.

Kind of funny how long I have stock piled parts to build this car.

Those are the 12” 98-02 Camaro brakes on my car, only difference is I’m using the 06 gto caliper instead of the Camaro.

Just send those 17” n 90’s I’ll let you know how they fit 😀

So, do you know if that same adapter bracket will work on the jimmy/blazer spindles. ? And where did you get your adapter bracket ? BTW, I called Kore 3 today and was suggested that the 12.8''/C5 kit would work on the N90-17'' 4.25 '' back space rims with a 1/4" or 5/16" spacer.what you all think about using one if it were billet?

I'll have to do some research to where I bought these brackets. I originally was going to do the c5 front brakes, I even bought the 2wd blazer spindles to do them but Tobin at Kore3 informed me that they wouldnt clear my wheels with out a spacer, probably alot like the n90. Thats why I ended up doing the slightly smaller ls1 camaro front setup.

Heres my thread from when I did the brake swap. It has the info from where I got the brackets.

And Year One confirmed the wheels will clear when using the template from Kore3 that is for that, C5 calipers and the 12.8" rotors. So much confusion laugh . At some point there will be a clear cut answer.

Sounds good. So you have the AFX/ATS spindles, KORE3's C5 brakes and will be running the N90's as well?

all that except I have the jimmy/blazer spindles. once I order the parts ( I am in the middle of a engine build also ) I will mock it up and test it on the wheel. I will call Tobin tomorrow and get the ball rolling. I noticed I said "yang" which should have been ya'll. lol.
