All 4 pads looked like that cracked one by the way. The last couple weeks before I changed the pads were dicey.. They definately felt a little weak. The rotors themselves had no real visible damage.

I decided to put the powerslots in anyway because A) They were a special order and I couldn't return them anyway () And most importantly, B) because it was mentioned repeatedly in my performance buildup thread that I should upgrade the brakes before I increase the power of the car given my driving habits from living in NY.

I'll admit it, I'm an aggressive driver. Its a product of my environment and my own habits.

Anywho, back on topic: I'd reccomend these rotors to anyone who needs to change. The combination of the pads and powerslots makes for a smooth, quick stop.

I'll bet it stops a lot smoother.. One of those pads looks like it was showing signs of slight rotor warp

It looked like more than one was warped to me! :o

Good thing you got them changed, IMO.

Please remember... all rotors can warp..and all pads can have issues from heat.

If you outdrive the new setup.. they will react in a similar manner.

I know that. I don't assume they're impervious. I think I made the best choice given my options.
