Spray them down with WD 40.

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.

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

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).

Or you can use RacingBrake's pads; I'm using their ET500 pads which are a half-street, half-track pad and they work like glue. The stopping power of these pads on their rotors is just amazing.

+1 They also have their own brand of pad.

I wonder how much rwhp do you think these would add over that stock rotors due to the weight savings?

Is there a down side to these (other than cost)? I mean do they warp more easily than the stock rotors and do they last as long?

There would be no gain in actual HP. The gains come from decreasing the unsprung, rotating mass. Quicker acceleration, better braking, and less weight. If you are on a straight line drag strip, the additional weight savings could mean the edge in a heads up race. While the weight savings on these rotors is huge as a percentage of rotor weight, the total weight saved here is not tremendous in the overall sense on a 3800 lb car. 100 lbs might get you a 0.1 second advantage in a quarter mile race, so here the edge would be smaller, but still an edge.

A greater advantage would be seen in a road racing or auto-crossing application. Lower unsprung mass means the tires stay planted better, and less rotating mass means it takes less energy to accelerate (in a positive or negative direction).

As for a side by side comparison to stock rotors, I can't really say which lasts longer. A lot of that is due to how the brakes would be used, i.e. normal wear and tear, road racing, etc. Another variable would include what pad is being used with which rotor.

The increased ability to dissipate heat/gases would definitely give the slotted rotor an advantage against warping.

Thanks for the info. I'd love to have these eventually.

It is funny how most of the stuff I want most tends to be the most expensive stuff.
