Black Series brakes on C63

Black series has the following brake set up:

Front: 390x36mm
Rear: 360x26mm (drum size = 180mm)

C63:

Front: 360x36
Rear: 330x26 (drum size = 165mm)

As you can see the black series has much more brakes than C63 while the complete brake kit can be highly expensive, so we are thinking to develop an upgrade brake kits for C63 using B-S rotors which we already make at fraction of what a caliper brake kit can cost.

Black Series two piece rotor:

Front 390x36:http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece...ONT-p/2237.htm

Rear 380x28 (vs. OE 360x26): http://www.racingbrake.com/ProductDe...oductCode=2437

Advantage:
  • Very affordable
  • Retain stock calipers
  • Use same stock pads
  • Lower initial purchase and maintenance cost

Would like to know if this BBK upgrade would be of interest to you.

Thank you.

Yes I am interested, does this come with spacers and bolts to make the caliper's fit the bigger disc's ? And will these fit under 19 inch wheels?

As long as it is a direct bolt-on kit with everything included, yes.

Black Series brakes on C63-c63-blackseriescaliper_zpsafc1411b.jpg

The calipers on top; On lift is C63 and on right is B-S. As you can see the caliper is the same and the only difference is the height of adaptor which we will design and make a same adaptor for C63 to fit bigger rotor.

The rear caliper (bottom) is the same for both C63 and B-S with direct mount to OE spindles, we will have to design an adaptor to bridge the caliper up (same idea as the front) for the bigger rotor, like our offer for VW/Audi rear BBK here:

http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece...-Re-p/2172.htm

We have spindles and OE calipers in house, with extensive experience in developing OE caliper BBK
so yes they will be "bolt on" installation.

As far as your wheel is the same size as stock B-S (19") they shall fit.

Another major advantage of this upgrade is the weight saving:

Front OE one piece rotor is one of the heaviest rotors in any class - a whopping 36 lbs, but when you upgrade to B-S BBK, even it's 30mm (390mm) larger in diameter yet weighs only 28 lbs, so you can save 8 lbs per rotor.

The rear OE one piece is 21.5 lbs (330x26), and our rear two piece (380x28) "larger and thicker" is estimated @22 lbs.

Similar upgrade light weight two piece rotors for ML63 offered by RB:

Another question or two


" As far as your wheel is the same size as stock B-S (19") they shall fit "


Does this mean I will have to use BS wheels? what about std 19s or in my case HRES?
ff01 8.5 19 x et 47
ff01 9.5 19 x et 45


Also can I use MY callipers?

Basically the BBK only move calipers up towards the wheels for the bigger rotors while you can re-use your calipers & pads (front and rear) - Save a lot of money, and if you have 19" wheels they should fit.

C63 507 with BS Body; 2008 SLK 55
Just in case folks did not think about it: If you are using 18 inch rims for winter tires, this will not work. I am driving that setup and the 507 brakes barely clear the inner rim diameter. The stock brakes were obviously designed with 18 inch rims in mind - and that flexibility was given up with the BS.

May be they are only sold with caliper kit only but you can check with dealers about the availability.

That's true. For 390mm rotor kit you will need 19" wheels, while 360mm can fit under 18".

I can live without 18s as I could do with a bit bigger brakes on the front at least : )

Thank you all for your interest. We made a good progress in design and can now confirm the rear OE calipers will fit 380x28 rotors, it will be 2" oversize than OE's 330 (13"), and even bigger than black series' 360mm (14").

They will, for sure, dramatically improve your C63 both in braking performance and look.

Juts to reiterate, this complete upgrade brake kit will retain the use of your stock C63 calipers & pads, and you would need 19" wheels.

The kit will come with RB light weight two piece rotors rotors, low dust and no noise ET500 performance brake pads, and all necessary hardware and adaptor for an easy "bolt on" installation. (track pads and stainless steel brake line are optional

This kit is very affordable comparing to aftermarket Brembo brake kits. We expect to ship the kit in late Jan/early Feb if you place the order before the end of December.

Brake kits offer will be announced for pre-orders as soon as ready.

Is it correct that the 507 and black series share the 390mm brakes?

According to this source, 507 series has the same brake as C63 (Non BS):

As standard, the C63 AMG “Edition 507″ comes with an even more powerful AMG high-performance braking system featuring compound construction technology. The front axle makes use of compound brake discs measuring 14.2 in. x 1.4 in. The advantages of the compound design include higher fatigue strength and lower warping characteristics. In addition, compound construction discs are lighter in weight and the reduced unsprung masses improve the response of the spring/damping elements.


It seems there is a Performance Brake Option which you might able to upgrade to BS brakes.

The rotors are composite casted (al hat+ iron dsic) like CTS-V, but the ring is not replaceable.

After this upgrade your C63 brake performance would be greatly improved and better than BS stock, so if your brake is due for replacement it's an excellent option.

Anyone?

We have just released a bolt on Carbon Ceramic Rotor package for Black Series which can be adapted to standard C63:
