Any one have info on this disc brake?

If they can't even be bothered to tell you who makes the fucking thing I would steer clear of it.

I asked if this was the ScootRS part and if it was sand cast or injected, SIP's response:

This article isn’t from ScootRS, it's made by a different supplier.
Also we don't have an info about how it's made.

Kind regards Max Reiter

My guess is it's an Everygreen (T.S.) one. Last time I was at Tino's he was shipping out a massive order to SIP and he was saying they were one of his biggest customers (mainly V-tronics). I'm surprised SIP even replied to your email. Their customer service is generally non-existent.

Tino's sand cast disc would come disassembled and unpainted. And also at a much higher price. I'm guessing this to be left over inventory that they have found or bought from the manufacture over there after the collapse of ScootRS or someone else is now offering these. If it is, they would be pressure cast - not perfect but better than Tino's in my opinion.

I'm running 2 machines using a Tino made Disc brake. Excellent quality. You get everything with them, including high quality seals and bearings.

Instead of pushing product, you should comment on what Corgispeed is asking about.

I'm not pushing product.

I'm trying to be positive and not get into an argument about which is better, Tino's or ScootRS, who seem to have gone out of business anyway.

I can confirm, though, that that is not a Tino Disc brake. It doesn't have the same mouldings.

I think the Saigon Scooter Centre are also presently making these I can't say if this is one of them or not though.

Looks like they have already sold out, so hopefully the people that bought them will leave informed reviews...

The ScootRS units are fine for the $. I have run 2 with no issues. Except you need to replace the darn soap bar brake pads. If it doesnt have the ScootRS stamp inside the hub then its something other. like Sterling or Spaq which are junk. I had a sterling item someone gave me. It was horrible quality -  gave it away to someone else for parts.

I have a Campagnolo one for sale. It's already been powdercoated Cardinal blue. It's beautiful.

i bought one, no stamping or makers mark anywhere, side by side looks identical to a scootRS copy.  will update once i install

I'd highly recommend you swap the actuator out for one that has a high tensile center washer. The few repros I've seen don't come with them. Campagnolo designed them this way for a reason. Last thing you want is the actuator to split apart when jamming on the brakes.
