They don't come any better than Bruce and I like your choices for pads and fluid.

Nevermind. I misspoke earlier. About the same price at Apex ($1000ish a pair). Apparently the price I saw ($500ish) was for a single rotor not the pair. This doubles when you add it to the cart as the minimum purchase is 2 rotors. Back to looking at the DBA 5000's I guess :/

If you're planning on doing any kind of performance driving I highly recommend you save up for at least a front set of RB rotors; they're that good.

so i had a crazy week and onl rebuilt my front calipers using the racingrake rebuild kit. brakes were even cooler than my last review of of the rotors. I was running a very agressive track pad and still cooler temps kn a 102 degree day. zero brake fade again. the pistons in the rebuild kit are better designed and the oil seal and dust boots are sturdier and an upgrade as well. i recommend the rebuild kit to any track guys using stock calipers...could feel a difference. install was easy as pie.


will take pics and write a full review once i do the rears as well.
