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.

Those look great! What are the differences from the Brembo rotors?

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.

granted that aftermarket rotors may weigh less, to get the same braking power without spending 1k all you need to do is change the pads($100-200) and stainless steel brake lines($150-200). even the rotors that brembo is offering($600) for 1/4 the price of the 2 pieces rotors, should be fine. those 3 things will give you better braking for less than a grand.

Yeah was $609 to be exact I am a Brembo dealer and they hooked it up on the first batch for my personal car.

I still am deliberating to install them or not. I like the Slotted/Drilled Stillen ones better but lets see the price. Im not in any hurry its winter for me anyway.

Slotted works best thats my experience the drilled just looks more obvious to the naked eye as a mod. Thats why the Stillen ones give best of both worlds i would think.

Brembo also told me they are offering a Caliper only upgrade to use the OEM rotors, you can do a large 6 pot up front and 4 pot out back. its still costly around $4500 for both sets.

I think for 80% of us the stock stuff is fine with new pads, lines and basic rotors these big brake kits are pricey and overkill for most.

55Designs, you are saying you paid $609 for your Brembo rotors, but is this a price the average consumer can find these rotors, or was that a one time deal for you? If it was a one time deal, then it's a bit misleading to say you can find them for $600/set. I see them on tirerack.com for $379 front and $362 rear.

To answer questions about pricing, the pricing was released this morning.

Front rotors will cost $299.26 for the cross drilled, $311.74 for the slotted, and $342.94 for the drilled/slotted.

Rear rotors are $283.66 cross drilled, $296.02 slotted, and $327.34 drilled/slotted.

Prices are for a pair of rotors, and currently are free shipping ($9.95 handling/insurance per order)


I am cleared to take pre-orders for them with an estimated ship date of mid January.

PM or email me if you would like more info.

Dan

Great prices Dan! I assume that's the only "color" they come in since they're coated? What do you need for a preorder?

Also, what is the difficulty level installing these? Besides the obvious remove the wheels, and pads, calipers...

Thanks!
Michael J.

Michael,

Yes, they are only available in the silver zinc plating. They install exactly like stock....pretty easy. I also carry a variety of brake pads and Goodridge SS lines for those interested in upgrading those parts while they have everything taken apart.

To preorder, just call me up. I'll take your information now, then process your order and charge your credit card when the parts are ready to ship.

(866) 278-8287 x128

I e-mailed R1 Concepts a couple weeks ago and they said they are also in development. They make great drilled and slotteds for around 200 bucks a set.

Guys the price I got was for sure a one shotdeal I think they messed up because the tirerack has now raised the prices on them. I prepaid before they were released and I am a dealer.

Stillen prices are competative and I am for sure going to get the drilled/slotted versions and sell these Brembos to another guy.
