Has anybody seen this rotor. It says that it is lighter than the GM metric and it fits the pinto pin. Anybody know anything about it. At first I thought it looked like a metric that had been turned down to 10" but I emailed them and they said no. I dont think it is a stock hub for anything, but I cant find anybody else selling them. http://store.yahoo.com/randys-racemart/10brroformui.html


Is there any place selling the Metric rotor ready to bolt on to a Pinto spindle? A kit with beargins brackets etc would be even better.

We bought our granada rotors and bearing kit from southwest speed. They also sell the caliper brackets.

It's not a stock rotor for anything, basically its a stock pinto/mustang II rotor drilled for a 4 3/4" bolt pattern. Speedway and other sources have been selling them to the street rod guys for as long as i can remember. I've used them since switching to pinto stuff in 1999 and have never had a problem. Most mods don't use enough front brake to justify the big front rotors. I'm not sure anyone is making brake brackets for the small metric calipers yet, I've always just made my own.

This looks like different stuff wfoon. 5on5 and they have the brackets for metric calipers. Just not till March. Granada rotor turned down to 10" and lightened maybe?
Was that 10" rotors racerX?

actually now i am thinking its a metric casting turned down to 10" and machined for the pinto spindles?? It also says that it will clear the lower a frame which the granada rotor wont do even at 10", it would have to be moved out on the spindle at the same time. I know sjyrockets are using a metric rotor with a modified outer bearing/race location and turning them down to 10" and they look almost identical to the one i posted about.

wfoon is right,look in speedway motors street rod catalog..its a mustang 2(pinto) direct fit with a 5on5..last time i bought a set they were around 70$ apiece with bearing and seals..you do have to make a caliper bracket but its real similar to a granada bracket and easy to do..

I looked on their site for a pinto rotor and couldnt find anything. Seems like i remember seeing something in the catalog maybe but it was a 9 1/4" pinto replacement with 5X5 pattern. The ones like racemart sells are 10" diamter.
