EBC Rotors, good quality??

Ive been looking to get some new rotors, and I came across these 2012 FORD MUSTANG EBC 3GD Series Sport Rotors GD7255 - SummitRacing.com

I think the black finish would look pretty cool, but ive never seen them before, anyone know a little more about them?

Some of the guys I know in the G8 community rock those rotors and love them. Don't think you could go wrong with them! TPS motorsports in black zinc slotted would be another great option.

FYI any kind of finish on the brake rotors is for shipping and storing to prevent rust. It will come off as soon as you apply the brakes while driving. Pretty much every track guy recommends stock rotors, unless you are going for appearance reasons.

Yep, better pads and maybe fluids (depending on your driving) are what you need, not fancy rotors. Stick with the stockers.

Sent you a PM! Do you have Brembo brakes? Because I believe with the Brembos, the Rotors are 14" and the EBC's from Summit say 12".

PM or Call me Directly with any questions.

While its true that the black coating will come off when you apply the brakes, it is untrue that ALL of it comes off.

You are left with the black zinc in the slits and dimples along with the inner and outer edges, this prevents rust on the entire piece because the pad prevents it on the contact points ant the zinc prevents it everywhere else... I love my slotted and dimpled for this reason, they always look great. (Performance is probably the same as stock, I did not notice a change...)

Great point, honestly I did not even think about the fact that the black coat will be brushed off by the pads, another reason why I post these questions before making any moves. Other people look at things differently, really helps . Thinking along these lines now, wouldnt drilled/ slotted rotors begin to rust inside the drilled holes?

I have carbon steel Rotors on my sportbike and they do rust in the holes but it is after a long time (they were coated). You will wear out the rotors before having problems with the holes rusting. EBC rotors are cheaper than some others and you get what you pay for. Drilled rotors need to be checked for cracks more frequently.

I've had EBC rotors on my Focus ST for two years now; I really like them. The black coating only rubs off on the pad contact points and protects everywhere else. I will definitely consider them when the stock rotors are due for replacement.

Im personally thinking about the ford racing brembo upgrade from AM in a few years. They seem pretty sweet. I could have a BBP sixxer xP

I think with these cars one would see better brake performance with better lines and a fluid swap vs a major hardware overhaul. From the factory, they arguably will out-brake an M3 or at least match the performance.

well Im a non PP v6 and i think if i ever track the car when it gets procharged imo the breaks will severely suffer partiallly due to fluid and the lines but also the small brakes
