New EBC rotors and pads

Just received my new EBC Sport rotors and red stuff pads.

Beautiful day out for a little driveway wrenching. More pics to follow.

The front set was $163 and change and the rear set was $140 and change from AutoAnything after 15% off, free shipping, and no tax. Obviously your price may vary based on your model and year, but I felt like I got a great deal especially given EBC's reputation and quality products.

Good products but be careful running both slotted and drilled rotors on a DD.

Thanks. However, they are dimpled and not drilled so I'm not too worried about the potential problems associated with drilled rotors.

Warping I believe or cracks, drilling into the rotors compromises the integrity of the rotor
With that said I still plan on getting some drilled and slotted rotors

So basically drilling into the rotors is the dangerous part? Is there any evidence of this? And just out of curiosity, how hot do rotors typically get during moderate use?

Drilled rotors have a tendency to crack between the drill holes. I recommend dimpled/slotted for the look without the risk.

Yeah my drilled rotors are slightly cracked. You can barely see them. Then again it's an autozone brand (came with the car) they still stop better than my stock rotors but its a little squeak that drives me crazy. Someone recommended brakemotive. Said its a good brand and uses it for DD and track use. Holding up good

I've heard theyr good too, and fairly cheap too
Iv seen couple videos were they did alot of heavy braking on a machine with the rotor basically continuously making the brake glow red then used a dial indicator(metrology tool) after it cooled and measured the vibration(warping) and it was like only 1/100th of an inch which is in spec

Rotorpro is where I got mine. Between autox, drag strip and heavy street use I have had no issues. Going on 4 years with the rotorpro dimpled/slotted and hawk hps+ pads.

100 miles on the new brakes so far and wow talk about night and day difference. The initial bite is substantial and I probably look like a 16 year old just learning to drive as I leech along when I hit the brakes since I'm still adjusting to the new sensitivity lol.

i see you're still running rubber brake lines...you think they feel great now. swap over to braided lines and you'll never go back to rubber .

no expansion of the line even under heavy braking which would normally give your breaks that spongy feeling. also will help the breaking distance a bit.
