They were cut and designed by Mr. Quick. I have to give credit where credit is due. Hes a great guy to work with.

I want!!

So i assume from the looks this is using the S series caliper with the neon caliper?

How much bigger are the rotors compared to the Saturn ones? And is the braking swept surface (where the pads ride against) the same between the two???

Yes thats the plan. Im going to wait until I have them and get to see how they work until we start selling. The only downside, if you consider it a downside, is the fact that the SRT-4 rotors are .3 in larger in diameter than the stock fronts. So I may look a little disproportionate but theres something in the works for that too.

Definitely interested to see how these work out for you. Very interested.

Yes this is correct. They are both 57.1mm hub bore.

I wasn't posting any of this in the forum until Brian had his set up on the car, but here's the deal:

The Neon rotor will work with the Saturn caliper. The neon rotor is a direct fit to the J-body hub, but it is larger diameter than the Saturn rotor, so the caliper bracket just needs to be moved out a bit. Also, the Neon rotor has a different hat height from the Saturn, so the caliper bracket needs to be moved inward on the vehicle in relation to the hub.

The only thing about it that bugs me, but it's not a functional issue, is that the caliper bracket for the Saturn caliper has a radius in the front that is smaller than the hat of the Neon rotor, so it looks a little odd.

The pads contact the rotor surface perfectly, and everything should work well, but I'm just waiting on getting the final parts to Brian and having him give feedback on the whole setup.

Very nicely done.

I can put my plans for the neon disc to bed. Good work Shawn.


Want hub spacers rear disk brackets or trailing arm bushings? Shoot me a PM.

Thanks, Jeff.

I hope it works out well for Brian. Here's a side view of it not on the axle yet.
I have a couple of minor tweaks to make, but I'm happy with the outcome so far.

I would buy this setup in a heartbeat. I was not sure I liked the other rear brake swap because the rotors were so small and you had to drill them.

Finally... As set up I am interested in.

I am very interested! I didn't like having drilled rotors and this would be a simple fix.

Cool setup. How much does it end up spacing the wheels out?

Looks great Mr Quick!
This is a great solution for those of us wanting to do the Saturn swap but not thrilled about having to re-drill rotors. Do you happen to have a shot of the front view, to show the size comparison of the caliper to rotor? Definitely hoping to see a GP in the near future!

Dang it Shawn. You're gonna make me broke. Put me down for a set of brackets and thanks Jeffie for looking into that idea
