Hey guys, I just had my winter tires put on my car and the mechanic showed me that there is a massive chunk missing from the inside of the front right side brake disc:confused2:

How the hell has that happened?

anyways... now i need some new ones;)

what are your recommendations that will fit with the OEM brembo calipers??

I recommend DBA slotted rotors with Hawk HPS pads. I had this setup (along with SS lines) on my STi. It felt great and improved the braking (over stock setup). I am planning on doing the same combo on my X, when the time comes.

I prefer non-slotted/drilled/dimpled rotors. Just good blanks.

how come all you serious guys like the blank discs?? is having holes and grooves not good?

all the race/super cars have them?:confused2:

the oem blanks are no good when you need to brake for more than 5 secs from high speeds. They warp straight away...trust me;)

That works for DD. Its not safe for track use though. Although, I would recommend slotted rotors as a good balance between track and DD. Google about the advantages. Remember that slots/drills weaken the rotor and reduce the surface area of the rotor which has pad contact. Their advantage is to get rid of gases and rotor/pad material coming from heavy braking.

Giro disc is one of the first vendors on here. Trusted with quality and great feedback.

New pad materials decreased gases produced during breaking. New pads do not produces as much gas as the older asbestos pads. Anything that cuts into the rotor just decreases surface area. Good blanks are all you need.
