    Default Caterham rear uprated brake kit rotor needed

    I have my Caterham at my mechanic's to repair damage that occurred when my driver's side half shaft broke at a track day. I lost the disc rotor at that time and have not been able to find a replacement, hence this post.

    I have Caterham's "uprated rear brake kit" which uses a system specific 10" disc rotor. Nothing else will do-this is a unique bespoke item just for this "uprated" brake kit.

    Both Beachmman Racing and Caterham Parts UK are out of this item.

    Thus this post. I only need the 10" rotor but will happily purchase the entire uprated brake kit if necessary ($1K+).

    My mechanic wants my car out as he doesn't have room to store it, so I dont have the luxury of time.

    If anyone has the part, plz contact me here, or better, text or call me at 513-646-8120.
    Thx!

    you've probably tried all the usual suspects, but in case not -- Redline Components in UK stock a lot of parts. And if they don't have it, they can likely point you in a direction. Good luck!

    Thx John. Redline says they dont have the needed rotor, nor does their supplier.

    Could some other rotor be turned down to create what you need?

    Thx Inn, I will await your verifying that it is, indeed, the rare, bespoke, long rumored, seldom seen, unicorn, Caterham uprated rear brake rotor.

    Do you have a part number Mike? It will be sourced from AP Racing. I have a bunch of Caterham rotors but no idea if any are what you need? I will be at the garage this weekend and can check.

    Thx Croc, I will see what I can learn. Caterham seems to only sell the "uprated rear brake kit" as a group of parts, so I am not sure if the rotor has a part #. I will ask Bruce Beachman, who I typically get my Caterham parts from. Innominatus is checking to see if his part works and I will buy his if it is the right item. I do know the 10" front brake rotor does not work. It is sourced from AP racing which is all out of them, but allegedly is making more in a few weeks. The last time I heard Caterham say a part wld be available in few weeks it was 6 months....

    The AP part number is specific to Caterham, and AP does not separately offer them for sale. This is the case with many AP-sourced Caterham parts (e.g CSR slave cylinder parts; pressure plate and clutch discs; etc)

    I suppose you could pull the one "good" rotor, and measure hub diameter, hat height, OD, and thickness. Then start rummaging around.

    We should have these things in a couple of weeks.

    I think these may be csr rears and fronts and so absolutely no use to you.
