C63 507 with BS Body; 2008 SLK 55
Ordered!
Hopefully I will get them on time prior to my next track day. I will share my learnings from the install, street driving and track day afterwards.

This replacement (upgrade at the same time) kit is not just for tracking, it's also an excellent upgrade for street driving for a cost less than a dealer's brake job you can upsize your brake to Black Series.

Adaptor is made and anodized. Here some weight difference:

OE C63 Steel bracket:



OE C63 BS Steel bracket:


RB Aluminum alloy bracket:


RB two piece rotor hat - C63 drum size assembled with C63BS rear disc (360x26):



Assembled weight:



Still saves you 5 lbs per rotor even oversized to 360x26mm (vs. original 330x26mm 1pc rotor)

Sad to have missed the pre-order special, especially as the CDN dollar sucks right now, but didn't have my car then :-( This upgrade is definitely on the list. Having poked around many websites for aftermarket brakes, it looks like RB has the most intelligent package.

Just put the big rotors on again ('summer brakes', to go with my summer tires... :-)). Again, am thrilled about the additional stopping power. Loving it!


Getting ready to go to the track for the first time this season in 2 weeks - NCM (Bowling Green, KY) with NASA. Can't wait!

Can I bother you for some photos of the RB's installed on your car? Would like to see the contrast with stock 507.

Yes, that is correct. The front calipers and pads are completely identical (except the adapter connecting the caliper to the spindle). In the rear the caliper has longer 'legs' allowing for the larger rotor. The caliper itself and the pads have the same shape.

if that's the case, if you get tired of your current street pads, i would highly recommend endless mx72 for some excellent street pads (i have only used them on my NON black c63 so far), i believe pad shape is similar to gtr but there are c63 specific ones out there. mx72 can cope with light track duty but I'm sure it is not something suitable for your track needs.

Since black and non-black c63 brake pad is the same, i might throw a set of mx72 on BS for street use. It bites much better than OEM pads and much more consistent too.

Yes, I am hearing good things about the Endless, except fot the price... I have just changed from OEM street pads to hard core track pads from Carbotech (XP12 compound) in prep for a track day next weekend, and the increased bite is nice - loving that.


Endless also has track dedicated compounds, but from Carbotech you get great pads for under 600$ per full set (4 corners) vs 1000$ with Endless. And I am going through several sets a season.

Do you guys offer the front caliper adapters separately?

I'm also interested in just the adapter as I already have the 390mm discs.

There are a few companies in Germany who make the BA 390mm brake adapter for the standard C63. I'll post more info soon

For sure, we appreciate it bud.

I seen online that a few C63 owners had done them, but I couldn't decipher what company made them.

You can take OEM/Aftermarket 390mm Black Series rotors and adapt them to your standard C63 Brembos. I'm thinking of setting something up if the interest is high enough
Hmmmmmm Ernst coming through with all the group buys

Just a suggestion - maybe you shouldn't post things like this on RB's thread and create your own instead?

What if he's trying to set this up through RB? That's what I thought was the plan?

If that's the case, then my bad. But his prior post made it sound like he was sourcing the caliper brackets elsewhere, and if that's the case then IMO it's out-of-line posting inside of the RB thread. We'll see.
