Help with Brembos?

Can someone with the Track Model front Brembo rotorz help me out with a dimension? I'm looking for the dimension from the face, where your wheel mounts, to the surface that the pads ride on. Dimension X.XX in the pic.

Please please please

I looked in the FSM to no avail.
Would it be easier to go to the dealer and ask to see a rotor?
Were you thinking of putting the 350Z brembos on another car??

Yeah, 12.8" Brembo rotorz will fit my car after I make caliper adapters. Thing is, aftermarket Brembos for the 350 are like $350 a pair. I've found some others that will fit, except the hat height is 1" higher than the stock 300 rotorz.

By the pics of the 350 rotorz I've seen, their hat height is larger too. I'm trying to find out how much larger. ie: if it's 1" more, then these other rotorz will fit too.

cool, if you figure out a 350Z brembo brake upgrade, let us know what parts you used.

CC would that be the same as the AE w/brembo's ??? It's snowing to be crap right now, but I'll see if I can get an approx with a tape when I'm down at the shop where the car is.

Sorry it took me so long to check CC. Went by the shop last night on the way home.
The front measures approx 15/16 of an inch and the rear measures approx 1 9/16 inch. That's as close as Mr Stanley could get.
The rotors don't come down exactly as your picture they have an inset radius that runs deeper than the pad surface and comes back up to the pad surface. The measurements are what you wanted, shown by your X.XX

Thanks , Looks like I still need the Z rotorz. The ones that I was looking at were for a bmw 540i, except the dimension is closer to 2". Some people have used cobra and 3000gt vr4 rotorz, but I don't like the idea of wheel spacers and longer studs.
