I'm not sure that until lately we've had enough people running that fast and small to get a decent sample size.

My point exactly.
I think we have something to learn from my experiences.

I know Boosty has.

I've not seen any rotor coating loss from high rpm use. Nor have I from injection pre-rotor. Not just in my own experience, but that of others on this forum and others that I'm a member of, including injection forums.

The point I'm trying to make is that you had a bad coating batch. Nothing more.

Do you think it would be too late to try and get a warranty claim

I just ordered a set of good rotors from Ed Morad.

$200. Cdn shipped

Not quite sure why I am doing this since I now have a Gen V and probably won't go back.

I will probably do the port and polish mod to the old Gen 3, pop in the replacement coated rotors, reassemble and put back on the shelf as a good back-up spare. Worth more to me as a spare than the $300. I might be able to get for it and the LIM.

Nothing wrong with a spare. Recently Blue went on because it was the backup charger. I'd do the same myself.

With all the "back up" parts I have now, all I need is a Bonne shell with a bare block and I could build we could build a new one.

That'* what I did when I rebuilt Black Betty my 79 Trans Am. Used all my back-up 79 Formula parts.

Now that I've done the Gen3 swap on the Zilla, I always keep a spare Gen3 for both cars. Peace of mind.
