Go with the brembo ones, you dont know if those rotors are subject to cracking under high temp braking conditions.

Brembo makes rotors for the GTS. Are the front rotors on the GT and the GTS the same size?

Any details, PowerSlot is $120 (per axle) cheaper than Brembo, so I would love for them to be a good company.

Thats the whole kit, that costs $3,300!!! I just wanted to put on TRD brake pads with sloted rotors, I don't need racing brakes. I don't drag or autocross my celi so IMO a full racing kit is over kill.

I found some more info, turns out that PowerSlot uses Brembo blanks to make there rotors. This seals the deal for me I'm getting a set.

quote from ThunderRacing

"Power Slot, using the highest quality blanks from suppliers like BREMBO, has created the exclusive "tapered slot" design as an alternative to crack-prone cross-drilling. PowerSlots bright plating eliminates the the look of rusty rotors, and enhances custom wheel appearance. Best of all, PowerSlot rotors run cooler, extend brake life, and significantly improve wet and dry brake performance."

I'm bring this to the top because I want to know if anyone go these yet?

I going to replace my rotors soon and I remember reading about these.
The reason I don't want to go with the AEM or Brembo kit is because
I still want to use my stock 15" wheels in the winter time.

Gen7 I searched for reviews and seems a lot of people have these rotors so they can't be all bad.

I think I'm gonna go with those and these, still looking

http://www.performancecenter.com/vehicle...;sf4=BRAKE+PADS

and maybe get some stainless steel lines too ???? Anyone know a good place to get stainless steel brake lines for a GT

What do you think ?

I'm no doubt getting the PowerSlot rotors. I hear Hawk pads are really good and thats what PowerSlot recommends. EBC sounds so good I'm going to try them.

I should note (for everyone other than Ricepowered) that Brembo and AEM big brake kits are not going to work because I want to use my stock wheels in the winter. 17" wheels are the min for AEM and Brembo.
