looks good but why would they make them look like 6 piston rotors when they are only 4 pistons... why not just make them a 6 piston???

No clue. They do not make 6 for the rear. This is there first set for the Camaro and they are not even out yet.

I guess they did it since fronts are so big.

Why, why, why. Gee. Those that want to pay for my mods are more than welcome to. lol

Again, these are not even on the market yet. I can not tell a company what to make or how to make them. This is what they had on a special sema car and I bought them from them...

Not necessarily. Wilwood makes a direct bolt on kit for the thirdgen that is actually worse than what is stock. It uses the four-piston FDL caliper, BP-10 pads, and SRP rotors. And its not a drag kit, Wilwood states that it is for street use.

The piston area, pad area, and rotor thickness are all SMALLER than stock and actually less able to stop the car. You have to DIY a proper setup from the Wilwood parts. The best one I came up with uses the four-piston FSL caliper, BP-10 pads, and an SRP rotor. They are all either the same size or bigger than stock.

Its those little nagging details that I always try to find out before I buy something. Just some food for thought.
