Ok, I have my new brake rotors. Got 'em through Ty, and he'* trying them out too. Mine are going on the car tomorrow. Here'* the poop on them:
The rotors are hardened, much harder than stock rotors. Carbon fiber pads are not recommended, but ceramics are, if they're rated for stock rotors. There are only 6 slots as opposed to 8 on the powerslots, but they're wider (and chamfered).
From an email from Ty:
"I will confirm the exact wording from the makers. I just know they get their blanks from the same source as power slot, but this quality is that of the newer harder stock gm units. The older gm product is inferior. "
"I anticipate they will be perfect. They are made from the same slugs that powerslot uses but they are made buy a racing company and they sell them cheaper because of the lack of overhead. No warehouses. Powerslot has to pay all the people down the line. "
The price? $193.99 a pair. These things look GREAT. Ty and I are both set to abuse these things, and if they hold up, he'll have them available on his website. I have Raybestos Quiet Stop Ceramics ready to go on with them. My calipers look like ****, anybody think it would look stupid to paint them red behind ghetto gold rims? Not much would be visible. Anyway, we'll keep you posted on how they perform. I'm not due to get any rain until early next week, so that will be the real test for me. Here'* a pic of them:
