930 Floating rotors

Hi

I have a 78 930 with floating rotors.
Can I convert to normal non floating rotors, and still use the calipers and wheel setup?

I think you have to use the later hubs to use non floating rotor/hats. I think it's 1980 and up.

Just curious, Why to change the floating rotors? Those are more than proven with the 917... where braking was of the essence.

Yes,
You can change, but not sure why. It would require a new rotor and a custom hat. Or like others have said, a factory later rotor and a later hub.

Cheers

I have 2-piece fronts on my 87, just replaced the rotors at $395 per corner!
In addition to the cost, they are hell to find a source, PP has them as NLA.

EXACTLY. If you aren't tracking your car then why do you need floating rotors?

Well, what about a after market rotor.

Scroll down to the VCI 2000 floating. This might be where I go when I replace my rotors at the end of this season. Anybody have experience with these rotors?

Where does one find the 2pc rotors for an 86-89 930? I'm about due!
What are the front and rear diameters?
