View attachment 197740 View attachment 197739 Would HSV GEN F2 braided brake lines connect to the SS brake line car side? I’d think these should work no issues! Do HSV use same size connection car side for breaks lines? These lines seem like they’d work on Caliper side for my brakes too! I know some guys in the US that did this swap using ZL1 lines were concerned about the flares on the brake line connections not exactly correct but these seem good. Unless I’m missing something.
I have these on my VF Redline, front and rear. They give a great pedal feel, i.e no sponginess at all. The pedal feel is always nice and hard.
A great upgrade IMO.

Another note, the CTSV rear brake rotors all show 365mm. Why would I go a SSVR 360mm rotor of the CTSV uses a 365mm? I’d prefer the 365mm to match the 4 piston rear Caliper application as per OEM on CTSV. Does anyone have any reason not to? Is there any negative to running a 360mm rear over a 365mm?
365mm is the better option.

Yeah will go 365 as I don’t have the Redline rear rotors anyway.
By the way, these 6 pistons are HUGE in person!!!!!
Should look great fitted!

Everything I have read has the rears as 360mm never seen 365mm mentioned before.

I am tossing up whether I get a complete set of fronts and rears or just fronts and paint them red. Going yellow would be more cosmetic plus will need to have all 4 painted to replace the Brembo logos as well as replumbing the rears could damage the yellow paint when doing this regardless of logos.

If that's the case then I will leave the rears and do the fronts only. That's a massive rear rotor! The Redline I thought were 350 but are actually 360 from my recent search.

No point in changing them over to another set of Brembo 4 pistons for rear.
Nope purely cosmetic. Are you planning on branding them Brembo or leaving them as is?

Everywhere I look it’s quoting 365mm rears on 2009+ CTSV and Camaro. Are you saying the G8 guys have found the Camaro rear rotors work fine with the electronic park brake (same size)?

What I’m wondering is the electronic park brake, will only work with the redline specific built rear rotors? Need to clear that up. In process of getting service repair manual to research!
Where did you copy that infographic from please?
Sorry i can’t tell whether the emergency (hand)brake on the V2 CTSV rotors will fit the new (2015+) Redline setup. I think they are same as Camaro, and may very well fit.
I think the size of V1 and V2 rotors are both 360mm, per Camaro.
If not, personally would not go for larger mass rear discs solely for aesthetics.
