Right now I am running a drilled and full float disk. are these the correct ones? <span style=”line-height: 1.5;”> </span> <span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>So which one would you use. They all just seem to small. Am I not looking at the correct ones?</span>

Have a look at the rotor that Schockwave did for the Wilwood rear caliper, it isn’t really available any more, but illustrates what they had to do to get the friction down to where the brakes didn’t just instantly lock up with little pedal pressure. It was a solid rotor, about 3/8″ thick, with a bunch of holes drilled in it…not so much for cooling, I think!

About the seeming small: Do you mean the calipers at the Summit link? If so, it’s deceiving, that rear caliper is massive for a kart.
