Racing Brake "Open Slot" Rotors Now Available At APEX Motorsports!!!
 
http://www.apex-speed.com/images/div.jpg

Save 5.5 lbs from EACH front rotor and 6 from EACH rear rotor! Eliminate 23 LBS of rotating unsprung mass over all!


RB Open Slot Front Rotors: $479

RB Open Slot Rear Rotors: $510

RacingBrake rotors are engineered and manufactured to meet the needs of the performance enthusiasts. From 3D CAD design to tooling development, casting, machining, and surface coating, RB controls all production processes to insure quality, performance, and value.

Their patented designs, combined with proprietary alloyed cast iron and precision machining assure you that their brake products will achieve the highest level of performance.

Open Slot Advantages:
  • Has the advantages of both drilled & slotted rotors
  • Allows the disc to expand and contract and prevents the disc from cracking or warping
  • Increasing cooling area and retains more friction surface
  • Slots relieves thermal stress
  • Slots are self cleaning and the pad build up will not clog the slots and are exhausted via the rotor edge keeping the disc surface clean
  • Reduces brake pad dust buildup and keeps the wheel clean through vacuum effect


What makes Racing Brake "Open Slot" Rotors the only option for the serious drivers?


http://www.racingbrake.com/v/images/..._7097007-1.jpg

Convergent Vane - US Patent#: 7097007

Staggered cooling vanes distribute heat more evenly and efficiently across disc surface while increasing airflow through rotor.
  • Less fade
  • Longer disc and pad life

http://www.racingbrake.com/v/images/..._7097007-2.jpg

Open Slots - US Patent#: 7097007

Combines the benefits of drilling and slotting without large reduction in disc surface area.
  • Provides exit path for brake dust and other debris
  • Self cleaning slots - never clog up like traditional slotting
http://www.racingbrake.com/v/images/patent_7219777.jpg

Reinforced Ribs - US Patent#: 7219777

Extended ribs increase the air flow and rotor strength from warping.
  • Resists rotor distortion
  • Stronger and cooler rotors

Center Mount - US Patent#: 7568560

Center-mount rotors provide air inlets from BOTH inboard and outboard. (as opposed to traditional surface mount design only from inboard)
  • Balances stress and heat load
  • Reduces heat transfer to hat resulting in cooler discs

do you sell rotors for a v-6 setup that are slotted and drilled?

SUX2BU 06-02-2011 09:49 PM

Is that the price of each rotor? I was about to buy a set, but i was thinking they were $950 for all four. Web site says they are $1,900 for all four. Which is it?

I can see how it would be confusing, RB prices the individually but only sells them in pairs. The price listed on the website in for each rotor but the minimum quantity is 2. The total for a full set is $1897.22.

I apologize, I missed your message above SUX2BU's. Racing Brake does not offer a V6 set up.

Apex Motorsports 06-14-2011 04:03 PM

Thank you for a great weekend and start to a new week Camaro5.

When I need new rotors, I think these will be the ones.

Jeez, what a bitch. :facepalm:

I would love some of these. If only I wasn't about to end up at Vengeance.

But do these rust any less at all?

I missed his post but I did respond and PM him as well. :thumbsup:

Here is some info on the rust issue you asked about.

"Racing Brake is the first company to introduce an EDP (Electronic Deposition Paint) rotor surface coating to the market. The EDP process penetrates and provides an even coating to all crevices and corners and can withstand up to 250 hours salt spray test. In comparison, zinc plating usually leaves vanes and other hidden surfaces un-plated and may last less than half the time of EDP in a salt spray test. After EDP, the rotor is sent back to production line for the last process - double crosscut grinding on the friction surfaces. This most important final step assures flatness and parallelism and provides the ideal surface for break in unlike inexpensive zinc plating, which impedes break in and may hide imperfections."

Interesting.

The reason I ask is because when I wash my car the rotors rust before I can get done and it gets all over the sheels immediately when driven. REALLY sucks. lol

Mine do the same, but as soon as I drive it, the rust is gone. I'm not really sure there is any way to avoid it completely.

Spray them down with WD 40. :yikes:

Darth_Emma 06-15-2011 11:42 PM

;) I think I'll take my chances and deal with the little bit of rust.

Well what happens is that they rust and when I drive it rubs the rust off and all over the chrome wheels. No way around it.

Are these rotors available for us wanting to upgrade ctsv rotors on the front?

The word from Racing Brake is that they are "in process". ;)

CamaroSkooter 06-24-2011 09:06 AM

What brand of brake pads do they recommend with these rotors?

I like Hawk. If you go to the Brakes section on our website we have the Hawk HPS (street us) and HP+ (track use).
