I just put on my new rotors ( drilled & slotted ) with titainium brake pads! Words can't explain the feeling 170.00 for the whole front , besides looks they stop like a Porshe . Two days and no dust , not sure if the brakes are titainium , but thats the name on the box!

I could have probably gotten the rotors you got for cheaper and saved you money. And also the brake pads.

I run Powerslot rotors and Performance Friction Ceramic Pads on my car. Once they heat up, they just keep biting and dont let go. Since I also have very open wheel they cool down very quickly so I don't experience brake fade. Willwren, when you want to do brakes, let me know and I can help you out.

I looked around for the brakes and the cheap jap rotors were 30.00 each the americans were 50.00 a piece and the good pads were 40 . So I went with the performance rotors for 35.00 more and it was shipped to my house . Don't remember the p/n but i ran about 45 miles so far and I do have a LITTLE bit of brake dust , but you can't tell from about 4 feet away ! . I guess the cooler the rotors the less dust . They stop good as hell though!that is until the abs kicks in after that I think they're all the same!
