That's a great point. I didn't realize that spacers were required. There's
no mention of this on the following website:
This is the exact setup I am going with (323x30 rotors w/ 996 calipers). I
will do some test fitting and if there are spacers required, I'll look at
incorporating these dimensions into the brackets. Otherwise, they'll be the
exact dimensions of the RS2 brackets.
Thanks for the info!

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
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
