R1 concepts rotor review

Sup yall, I just put on R1 concepts E-line, front and rear, slotted/crossdrilled rotors about 4 days ago, and they're not half bad. At first I was a lil worried as they were making alot of noise due to the plating, but after they got broke in I was actually impressed. The E-line is the cheaper set that they offer, only paying 260.00 shipped, seeing as how times are tough and I needed to replace the rotors anyway I decided to go for it. They come with a one year manufacture warranty against cracks and warping which isn't bad either. There is a tremendous difference in smoothness and stopping power, I dunno if thats just because my stock brakes were on the verge of exploding or not, but either way I'm happy with em, as they went on with no problems and the price was right. I maybe should have gone with the premiums which looked to be a much higher quality, but would have been around 350.00 shipped.I think I made a good choice so far. I'll see how they hold up down the road, who knows I could be wrong entirley.Feel free to chip in with opinions or previous expireinces.

Re: R1 concepts rotor review

I have heard people talk about this oil and I'm sure most of you use it but for the newbies next time you go get an oil change GET MOBIL SYNTHETIC (I used the recommended viscosity by Honda 5W-30 I think) and it works wonders. I rarely have to top my oil off even when I vtec hard its been a month now and still haven't had to top my oil off!

I just like the fact they paint the outer edge of the disc and the hub in black, it prevents the nasty rusted look.
