RBM use a C4 caliper i.e. ELGT
RBS use a C5 caliper i.e. AU2 onwards

Can do a quick search on C4 vs C5 calipers.

i.e. http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c4-tech-performance/760198-whats-better-c4-hd-calipers-or-c5-calipers.html

soo, having a look at that list. if you just got the uprights off one of these mobs, you should be able to build the rest of the set yourself? or do they fair f**k around with this stuff?

would love bigger brakes but i really want to keep e series offset. and i sware some of these guys are pulling prices out of there a**'s.. suprised someone hasnt built a kit that isnt such a stupid price

anyone heard of ksport.com.au

they can make a kit for the eseries ,

The kit would cost approx $4000 for 330mm front and rear, $4300 356mm front/330mm rear and $4600 356mm front and rear plus freight.

These prices are only a estimate and may well cost more.

Those prices are worse then RBS and RBM LOL

Search for machining stub axles , that's the thread of my brake kit I'm working on ,
If you supply me with uprights , standard rotors and calipers I can get machining done for under $1000 , you'd still have to buy rotors and brake pads plus few other pieces

It'd have to be more, wouldn't it ???
To me, looks like they normally cater for AUI and later - they still need to provide front uprights machined to suit, along with a hub to fit their front disc rotors.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
