Unique Power International’s response to my question:

Yes, the rotor is the center of all parameters, it is unique.
The caliper is redesigned and modified from O.E. caliper, all parts could be found from the market.
The pad is the same as Nissan Altima, Teana, Tiida, Fuga, X-Trail, Rogue........rear.
I'll put your email address on my waiting list and inform you when our stock is ready.
Thank you very much!

So if a ham-fisted guy at a tire shop improperly installs and over-torques your rear lug nuts and it warps the rotors, you're in a bind until you can get replacements from Taiwan.

I would love to get my hands on one of those "unique" rotors so I could start diving through rotor books that tell hat height, diameter, etc... It if was only a matter of turning a couple of millimeters off the OD, that would be awesome. I have doubts they had custom hat heights made, but that could be the reason for a modified OE caliper to adjust for being centered over the rotor. hmmmm.....

Off-road guys have been creating brackets for stuff like this forever. I've even put 3/4 chevy front brakes on a rear Dana 70 axle that had drums and came off a Dodge.

This may have been said, but based on the casting number, 1990 CRX Si. The disk seems to look close, but the disc is a world were every millimeter matters.. I am tempted to order and put a few items on my account at NAPA just to get to the bottom of this. Arrow points at my concern - Is this a factory bracket that mounts where the drum backing plate would normally be or is this the flange that was holding the backing plate?

Lastly and not sure it has been mentioned..... how bad is the ABS going to freak out, maybe the data is all from hub assembly. The fluid quantities are likely different. I would be curious about proportioning valves between the US and Japanese Fits.

I'd like to see if the calipers and brackets from the HRV will bolt up to the Fit rear axle. From the parts diagrams it looks like a similar bolt pattern but turned 90 degrees for some reason. If they can be swapped side to side or flipped somehow, it would be great to be able to use factory parts. Especially if it would allow use of a Honda disc, never have to worry about ordering a custom job from overseas.

Really wish I had the free time to look into it myself.
