Which A8 disks, the 323's? I used no washers on mine.

Just some BTDT. I have a Euro S2.
I have upgraded my calipers to RS2s. Using the RS2 brackets on S2 hubs
over A8 disks is fine. EXCEPT that I found (and others as well) the you
need to use a number of washers between the bracket and the hub to get
the caliper centered on the disk AND washers between the bracket and the
caliper to get the caliper spaced correctly from the center of the disk.
So the real cat's pajamas would be to have modified RS2 brackets that
add the thickness of those washers to the bracket itself. That would
make the caliper upgrade a true bolt-on.
Just my $0.02 CAD

The one-off mock-up will be ready on Friday for my inspection. If I like
it (ie: if it is an EXACT dimensional copy) then I will be ordering a
pair for myself. Obviously it is more cost effective to run multiple
sets so I'd like to ask if anyone would be interested in a set for
themselves. If I can get 10 people for a 'group purchase', the cost
would be $120 CDN/pair ($95 USD/pair) plus shipping which is less than
half the cost of the OEM. I will snap a few pics of the prototype when I
pick it up.
