drilled rotors

I have always needed drilled rotors on any car I drive. It seems that prelude rotors are more expensive. Probably just because its a sports car that people do stuff like that too but can anyone recommend a site to get some good drilled rotors at a good price? How are those ebay rotors? They all say high performance but I don't want to get them in the mail and see they are super thin...

I have warped brembo blanks. I need something better. I drive like a maniac.

Re: drilled rotors

Many people say that the Hawk HPS pads are the best pads for our cars.

Re: drilled rotors

i have ebc slotted dimpled rotors in the front and plain in the back and hawk hps ferro carbon pads all round.

it works very good. stopping power is greatly improved over stock, i do hooning on mountain roads and i have yet to have problems with the rotors.

tho on the front pads the metal plates on the back I had 2 sets where the glue that holds the metal on melt causing that plate to shift and drag on one rotor. i removed all of them and they work fine. I did not have that problem with the back pads.

my mechanic had drilled brembo rotors on his 5th gen and he cracked them, id avoid drilled rotors.

Re: drilled rotors

I warped EBC blanks in less than a week. The OEM ones on the car, when I picked it up, were fubar'd by the time I got home (11 miles). I still haven't found a decent set of disks that don't warp. I got a second set of drilled-grooved on the way to me now, cause I warped those with-in 3 weeks! So I guess drilling/grooving etc extended disk life by 2 weeks?.... NEVER heard of them cracking but hay... what do I know!

I have EBC blanks and they are perfectly adequate. If you warped yours, you were probally hooning it round the place on new discs and pads instead of letting them settle and bed in, thus the warping. Do that on practically any disc/pad combo and the outcome will be the same.

Re: drilled rotors

Don't worry about drilled rotors, it only weakens them, go for slotted.

If you're warping them then they're either being used beyond their limits or like Merlin said you're not allowing the pads to bed in or the new rotors to heat cycle properly. Both pads and rotors need to be broken in gently.

If they are quality parts that are broken in properly and still warp then you need to either (cheapest to most expensive): revise your driving style, fit some brake cooling ducts or upgrade to a better rotor/caliper combo.

Matt.

Re: drilled rotors

Drilled and/or slotted: Better cooling performance

Blanks: better stopping power

Habeeb it.
