Powerslot Rotors and Brake install guide and review
eek

Hey guys I installed my new Power Slot rotors and Hawk HPS brake pads today.

I haven't full broke everything in yet, but what I can feel so far is that this is a great upgrade. Especially if you don't want to go with a big brake kit. The stopping power is definately upped. I can't wait till everything is broke in and I can feel the full power of these. thumbsup thumbsup


Here's the install guide.

It looks HOT. How much did you pay for the rotors?

wow~~This is here just in time!!
i ordered my EBC green stuff brake pads today~ should comein in about a week or so~
i have some questions tho, if i am to just change the pads, i could simply just pull them out then replacing them rite?

i am thinking of getting Hawks for the rear...(i got the EBC for the front already)

So far so good. I still need to get everything fully broken in.
As for just replacing the pads, all you need to do is remove the bottom capiler bolt and rotate the caliper out of the way like in the picture below step 20. Them just replace the pads and reposition in the caplier. It's really simply to just do pads.

Yup that's where I got them from ... I have a GT so I only needed to replace the front.

Thats great Rice, glad hear your liking them. Also awsome work on the install guide!!!! This is the next mod for my GT (you already know that), this is just making me bite at the bit more. I must say I'm glad it was you that beat me to it. thumbsup grin

Nice install guide, definitely let us know how you like them after they're broken in. I know I need some more stopping power.

Well I finally broke them in driving to delaware and back and all I can say is thumbsup thumbsup

They look great, no rust anymore from water and there is a noticable increase in stopping power. Nothing spectacular as we still only have one piston calipers, but there is a noticable difference.

The Hawk Pads and performing excellent. Very low dust and no squeeking noises.
