Re: slotted rotors vs standard

They should be the same size, and hopefully you will feel a differance in the braking.

Re: slotted rotors vs standard

From DBA.com.au:

Advantages of DBA Longlife Slotted Rotors:

Unidirectional slotting (left and right), to increase pad bite, reduce fade and deliver exceptional braking performance.

Slots continually de-glaze the brake pads, improving efficiency and reducing rotor scoring. They even out-wear across the brake pad faces, increasing the effective contact area and extending rotor life.

Slots help dissipate water when driving in poor weather, as well as pump away dust and dirt.

Slotting also combats "out-gassing", where gas (from the pad bonding agents) can form a cushion between pad and rotor, greatly reducing braking power.

Provide a cost effective solution to improve the stopping performance of vehicles which are "under-braked" (such as many large four-wheel drives).

Re: slotted rotors vs standard

Ruger, what pads are you puting with the rotors?
Pads will make the bigest differance and take advantage of the whole thing.

Ferrodo's is what DBA suggest to use with their rotors? Any experiences with this setup?

Genebaby has that combo on his BA. I think he's very happy with the brakes.

Thanks JC.

About 150-200. I haven't checked myself, it's just what others have paid for theirs.
