I put them on the cobra and noticed no more mushy pedal after autox or hard driving.

Also don't forget brake fluid needs flushing regularly as well. The type of fluid is also important.

Re: Brakes!

Brake lines alone are not going to cure your problem. About all they will really do is to firm up your pedal feel.You will need to upgrade the rotors, calipers and pads to alleviate the issue you mentioned.

I paid 89$ for mine, but they won't cure brake fade. They'll just firm up pedal feel.

Sounds like you need to invest in some new brake components

Drilled slotted type rotors would help cooling a lot.

The drilled and slotted rotors help prevent glazing by keeping your brakes cooler. I have the BAER ones and I love em

They're also prone to cracking and breaking under heat.

Best rotors out there are vented blank rotors.

That's only if they aren't dimpled on the holes and slots. Mine are dimpled and I haven't had any trouble with them and trust me I have put them under stress

Some detail on drilled/slotted rotors and what works/breaks and what doesn't would be great if you guys have anymore knowledge to share.


I've never heard of vented blank rotors, is that something new or are you talking about the factory style rotors with the angled cooling vents in the center?

+1000


Years ago I built a 429/C6, F150 pickup and stupidly neglected to upgrade the drum brakes.
One episode of that and I was out securing disk brakes for a conversion.
Fear and butt clinchery happens and escalates exponentially when you are pushing on the brake pedal as hard as you can and the vehicles is not stopping or at least slowing down appreciably.

I agree. I haven't noticed any cracks appearing in mine. Dimpled/slotted/vented. Hawk hps+ pads.

Just wanted to warn anyone who's going to treat them hard.

They are what come factory on the cobra. Hard core track guys swear by a blank rotor.

When you buy drilled and slotted rotors if they are not dimpled at the edges than cracking occurs. Dimpling is when they drill the holes and than come in with a larger size bit just a little bit and round out the entry ports to the drill holes and slots. It rounds the entry on the holes so that when the brake pads compress against the rotor it stops outward pressure on the holes and slot thereby reducing stress cracks

That's called chamfering and it's a standard machining practice.

Ok, if that's what they want to call it I suppose it's their choice.


Maybe someone should tell them that dimples belong on cute little girls, not brake rotors.
