10% off of brake rotors Dimpled and Slotted @ http://brakeperformance.com

Yea, it seems like a spam ad. Sorry.

I think I am going to order some of the black zinc coated rotors for my Brembo's. $200 bucks shipped with pads for both wheels.

Brake Rotors Brake Discs Drilled Slotted Rotors

Figured I would pass on a good deal if I ever found one.

I was wondering if the premium semi-metalic pads really are any better? I don't track but tend to run her a bit hard on the streets..

that link wont open at work, whats the site?

EDIT: Nevermind, just saw the rest of the title.

I wouldn't get those rotors, personally. While slotted rotors help dissipate heat better, they really eat up brake pads. The edge acts like a razor blade. I had a set on my last Mustang that I road raced and pads would last me about a year (10-13k miles) with just street driving. The rotors also look like they are an inferior quality compared to the Brembos that come on ours. If anything, I would pay a bit more and upgrade to drilled Brembo rotors.

It works for me. You will have to copy and paste this one. You will have to select your car as well, on the left side of the site.

TPS Motorsports is much more well known, and has their rotors made by Centric, who makes Stoptech's parts.

They have front and rear rotors for only $299, and actually have a history of happy users. The corvette guys love them.

I've always wondered if this is the case with slotted rotors and daily driving. Most folks get them for the looks, but if they eat up pads that's bad

They look awesome, very aggressive. Performance is noticeable too (though maybe not under normal street driving). But they really do eat up pads. I even used Ceramic pads ($$) as they are a much harder material and supposed to be more resistant to wear with the slotted rotors. I still had to replace them quickly. Those rotors really are for track use only, unless you dont mind an annual brake job.
