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?

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.

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.
