So something along the lines of 330mm disc and twin spot caliper???

If ur going to do some heavy duty circut work id look at something bigger and better if your budget can go further

slotted is good but dont get the drill and slotted as people have more problems with them than just slotted

TROYMAN is right

You can get the 322mm rotor and use ur calipers but i think u need a different kidney plate??? that would be ur cheapest upgrade and maybe consider the DBA4000 or DBA5000 rotor if u can afford it
