So Sebring Short was a great time. The car is a blast, I don’t think I want any more real power out of the car at the moment. I do need to work on figuring out better brake pads because the Hawks aren’t cutting it, will probably go with G-Loc pads. Boiled the paint on the calipers after session one. But by session four it had fixed itself

had to do some inventive engineering on my strut bar since it was rubbing the intake. (Bonus nice engine bay pic)

Also when I filled up after getting 7.4mpg the whole day, the fuel range seemed… optimistic….

Love the build you got here! Has definitely sparked my interest with the CTS-V brakes, I am wondering if you have any links or part numbers or specifications as to what brakes and rotors specifically fit? I do not know too much about evo x rotors or cts-v brakes in terms of if different years have different sizes and would hate to look into the wrong ones. Thank in advance for the feed back :)

Heya, no worries at all. You can find the parts list along with a basic version of how to install the kit (they're installing on an older Elantra, not a Veloster N) here: CTS-V Brembo Big Brake How-To

I got the calipers from Rock Auto. The pads and hardware came from Amazon, and I got the rotors from a local Advance Auto. I personally use Evo X spec brake pads as well, since they are a little thicker than the CTSV pad sets.

Both myself and the person whose instructions I followed (someone else with a VN) are not running a 3mm spacer behind the rotor, the Veloster N does not need this, nor do you need to machine the calipers in any way. Just bolt them right on.

Be mindful of what paint you use too, I am paying the price for not using actual brake caliper paint after the track day now :(

It is what it is. The paint underneath is orange, so I might just crack all of it off and see what happens. Alternatively I might buy another set of calipers and just leave them silver with the original cadillac V logos on it.

People would certainly ask....Wow, what kind of brakes are those? (y)

Best regards,

Thank you! I am definitely going to look into doing this.

Man those breaks looks so good matching up, it's a shame that happened. I would maybe get them powder coated.

I have looked for hours on Prismatic Powder's website, and I can't find a similar colour. Plus I'd have to do the rears too. I think red will just be the easiest way for now.

I have had a few things powder coated before (non-car related) and I know the shop I have local will do a custom mix to match another color, however that cost a bit more. Just wanted to throw that out there in case you wanted to try and make the orange work still. Yeah, red would be less hassle though!

Im also scared that it'll eventually brown or burn over time like the Evo calipers do. Basically anything that isn't silver will cook over time :cry: :LOL:

So... I am an idiot and purchased a replica Bride Japan seat for my car a month or so ago. Anyhow, I installed it and immediately found out I was way too big for the seat. Out it came, I have ordered a suitable replacement from NRG, but will wait til it gets here to post pics ;)
