Drilled rotor upgrade for the Brembos?

Just looking to replace the rotors for a drilled/slotted version without spending to much cash, want to keep the same callipers and wanted to know if Brembo has something for this?

I've seen the Big Brake upgrade kit and there is NO way im spending that much money. Wonder if those discs would work?

I just bought the HAwk Street Performance Ceramic Pads and I am also looking for some reasonable rotors, mostly for looks. The prices I have seen is more than I want. 10% of the car value on rotors when I am not racing it makes no sense for me.

Over a grand for rotors is too much for me, not worth it. If they were about $150 - $200 each...now that is more like it.

there's no point what so ever to spend 1k on the rotors unless you are racing every weekend.

Especially since the car already stops in 103 feet from 60. They will never heat up that much under normal driving to require slots or drilled holes. They just look cool.

The Racing Brake upgrades are more than just for looks. You don't have to get all 4 either, you can just get the fronts. Not only will they improve braking and cooling, they will improve your car's acceleration because they reduce unsprung weight by about 5 lbs per rotor. Reducing unsprung weight by 5 lbs on all 4 wheels has the effect of removing 100 lbs of sprung weight. How much actual difference is that? It's like doing the quarter mile with a 1/4 tank of gas instead of a full tank. Except this works all the time.

Those Brembos look like a pretty good option for folks looking for a minor upgrade. I know there is also some Powerslot in the works. I am doing my best to get my hands on some so we can get them out to you folks and on the roads.

Stillen is working on stock sized replacement rotors for the Camaro. They will be available in cross drilled/slotted, cross drilled only, and slotted only.

Latest from R&D suggests a mid January release date.

More details to come as I get them.

To give you an idea of what they look like, here's the GT500 rotors. Pattern will be very similar if not identical, since they use the same Brembo caliper.

Cross Drilled


Slotted


Cross Drilled/Slotted

Pricing hasn't been released yet, but they will be competitive.


I also carry a variety of brake pads for both street and track use. Hawk, Porterfield, Ferodo and others as well as Goodridge SS brake lines.

And which is better? Slotted? Cross-Drilled? Cross-Drilled & Slotted? Does one have a tendancy to crack over the other?

Well, my personal belief is that our rotors are a bit higher quality. The slotting pattern is a bit different, and we use silver zinc plating. Oh, and our rotors are backed by a lifetime warranty against defects, including cracking and warping (unless subjected to racing or other abuse)


To answer the "which is better" question, there really isn't a "better". Slotted/drilled and drilled rotors are fine for the street, and even mild track use. For heavier track use i'd recommend slotted only.

FYI, both the Stillen Ford GT and GT-R race cars run slotted and drilled AP Racing rotors. Those cars get beaten 7 day 1000+ mile rally races all over the world and have performed flawlessly.

Stillen those look awesome what are the prices on the GT500 just to give us an idea? I have the Brembo ones already but havent installed them. I paid $600 for the set.

I honestly would like to sell them and get a lighter two piece rotor so I am holding off for now.
