so it would be completely safe for me to invest my 180 into powerslot rotors for a 96 SSE bonneville and i should not have any problems? if there is some fitting requiered can someone tell me what fitting problems i might come across.

Go ahead and call Powerslot and for 1995 they say if it works its new to us because it "the rotor" is a different size than the GP one for that year and the bolt pattern may be the same but the rest is different. For 1995 there is also a bigger rotor option on the GP, but I am not sure if they will swap over. This I got talking to Powerslot. Now for the newer 96/97 to 99 they do say they are the same. To be sure call powerslot. Now if you want a powerslot endorsed rotor for your car and they donít make it they are willing to work with me at 10 pairs per order. So thatí* all I have right now. I will add this too the list of options on the coming up site. I can get them to offer bigger rotors and other products too but the number of buyers may be higher. If there is interest it can happen.

TY

Did you ask about thickness and style? The guy who I talked to said the style was very different.

Yeah they told me they need an order of at least 10, did they say anything with respect to you regarding this? Also what year is your car?

TY
Ill phone again to make sure.

he said its the same thing as the GP as far as style and thikness but the problem is in the holes that put it onto the wheel base.

as far as how many they need to make he didnt say anything all he said is to email him and they will probably make the ones for my car model and year within 30 days.
my car is a 96

Your lucky then
The 1995 and older are the ones that had the issue with thickness and type differences. I bet you would be ok. Yes powerslot is one of the few that make good disks. Holes drilled all the way through are bad news even if they "work" because they are weaker. The only disks that are good that have holes in them are the ones that have the holes cast in the blank. Never buy slotted brakes that have slots that reach the edge of the disk. Also make sure the slots are large enough so they donít clog with brake residue. I plan on offering powerslots for all types because I feel they are the safest bet when it comes to performance. The stock units are also good but the stopping distance is not quite as good. If you want the very best solution for brakes I can get you ceramic disks and they will not warp ever. LOL they are a bit squeaky some times. Oh and they cost considerably more.

TY

Oh one other thing that is not always known is the rear brakes need to have good pads and good adjustment because if the rear pads are not soft enough you will then rely even more on the front pads and this creates even more heat up front. Ití* the heat that we are trying to avoid. Hawk pads and OEM pads are the ones suggested.
