front floating rotors-supplier info needed

Anyone have a source for floating front rotors for a 79 930 turbo other than VCI? No knock on them just want some competition and alternatives.
I wanted to know if there was a cheaper alternative out there.

I tried researching the Brembo site directly thinking to source a rotor that matches the front floating rotors on our cars but am finding it hard to get dimensional information and a Brembo part number to order to.

Factory replacement rotors with the cross drilled holes are too expensive and likely to crack from track use, so a slotted rotor replacement is desired. I dont want to convert to later style non floating hubs and loose the advantages of the floating rotor or originality of my car.

thanks for any info.

Coleman does rotors

I had some sloted rotors done for my centerlok app but they will copy any rotor you send to them around 160 to 200 per rotor depending on drilling or sloting.

PM cl8ton (Rod). He has floating rotors on his car and found them in stock at ****** Auto I believe. He searched everywhere (Pelican 1st) and they were the only ones who had any on the shelf. I would PM him to confirm but you may be in luck finding them there still.

Hey Fred, with the weather you're getting, chains may be the ticket rather than new rotors.. at this rate it's going to be June before you can drive that again LOL

anyone ever see a half track 930? I think thats what I need out here. 20 more inches today in Baltimore.
The Brembo part number above is a good reference.
I was also wondering if a later model rotor from ay a 993 or something along those lines would bolt in to the 930 hats, maybe with just a slight modification like turning down the outer diameter.
I will look into this but if anyone has seen this done that would be good info as well.
