Nice work! Your TSW wheels, the stance, and the CTS-V brakes are just a perfect combination. Outstanding.

If I ever pull the trigger to go 275 all around, those 18x9.5 MGM Nurburgrings will be on my short list.

Sweet! You built up your car very close to how I want to do mine. Gray wheels, no chrome. Great work!

Love it! That's how mine looks minus the wheels love the wheels. I gotta make do with stock 19s for now. My winter wheels killed my summer wheel setup.

Nice pictures. It's amazing what a difference the bigger brakes make.

Congrats Matt! Looks great. I am aiming for TSWs next summer.

Did you end up getting brackets from Squash?

Ohhh I thought that is what the Squash brackets were supposed to help solve...allows you to use the existing e-brake.

Can you help clarify?

Thanks!

the brackets let you use the Camaro/cts-v rotor and allows for the caliper to mount in the correct location to work with the Camaro/cts-v rotor, as its much larger in diameter.

the inside hub of the Camaro/cts-v rotor is larger so the stock g8 parking brake shoe cannot reach. squash should be making new parking brake shoes though, in time for Christmas he says...

Looks really good. What is your secret to keeping your car that shiny?

I hope to tackle the V brakes in the Spring.

probably just the photos, while it does look pretty shiny in the light, it was pretty dirty when i took the pictures. i do full waxes 4 or 5 times a year probably, and claybar a few times whenever the surface feels bad. other then that just wash and dry by hand.
