Nice I love new stuff!!


A little advice on the rotors-

paint the "hat's" because they are gonna rust.

thought thse were supposed to be slotted, i wonder what performance improvement will be made with the same diameter, and no slots. i know you will get better just because of the green pads, but why not the power slots ?

I didn't get slotted because they are not meant for racing! oem style with awesome pads is a better set up thumbsup

I'm confused. If they're the same size as oem, and they're not slotted.. what's the difference? I mean, why even bother replacing them if they're basically the same thing? Maybe I'm missing something confused

I needed to replace my old rotors since they were rusted through, and have been cut twice.

I would have gotten slotted, but I am a weekend warrior in the summer idunno

Yeah, I saw those too. EBC rotors and pads would be an awesome combination. I'll probably get those installed when they do my 30k mile service, but that's a while off

What do you mean? why aren't slotted rotors meant for racing? don't they produce a bite effect that will help stopping distance adn release gases that build up?

yes, but rotora's are not for that.

powerslot/brembo is, but there isn't a powerslot for the 2000 and brembo is like $800 eek

a slotted and drilled rotor with the same size may cause longer braking distance...since the surface area is reduced...

but then you get lower temp and less dust~

EDIT: hey diablo, i wonder if you need to turn the rotor when you install the pads? (since you have the new rotor...)

Also, I hate to screw it up and crash my car thumbsdown spineyes

ic, cos turning the rotor plus installing the pads cost around US$85 here...which is why i havnt install my pads yet...

Don't mean to repeat myself again but i thought that rotora was pretty good quality. i would think that they are pretty good since their brake systems are used in D1. Have you recieved any negative feedback from any rotora slotted rotor owners?

I plan to get their slotted rotors, brake lines, and Axxis pads. and i'll give a review.

I heard the front brake lines have the possiblitiy of rubbing against stuff if you get the stainless ones.

I have axxis ultimate carbon ceramic brake pads and I don't think i need any type of fancy rotor. sure there is a little rust on my rotor but i don't care. but IF I WERE to get some nice bling bling rotors I would get some slotted ones by power slot, brembo or ssbc or whatever if they make them.
