Now with curved-vane vented rotors (like many Corvettes), it does matter. We choose to slot across the vanes for better strength, so the slots are like what the above picture here shows. It is important to run curved-vane rotors in the correct direction so they pump the air from the center of the rotor outward.

Well mine had no L or Right designation but after installing lots big brake kits my eyes drew a blank and I figured it out.

Thanks the car does look sweet.

These rotors were cheaper than the Brembos so for anyone interested get a set.

The braking performance is awesome. Car stops better than other cars I owned with factory Brembo kits, E63 AMG, Jaguar XKR etc. For anyone to spend 7k on a big brake kit has rocks in their head unless they are doing a show car and want the look. I am hard as heck on my cars and my Camaro has ZERO fade. The pistons are a decent size for the OEM calipers so I doubt I will do aything else unless a vendor wants to gives me a bigger kit to try out for kicks.

Xmicro Paul when the weather gets better we will all get together and you cant take my SS for a spin. You will be blown away at the way it drives now.

I called Stillen and they actually told me I was one of the first customers to correctly install the rotors.....and they are left and right.....

It's your car.......so as long as you are happy.....so are we.

Just for the record, the next batch will not be marked. Install in the direction you wish.

I think I might raise my car up a little in the rear. I love the stance of your car.

Do it your car would never last 10 minutes up my way. Yours is LOW

My car really has no gap the edge of the tire is flush. I parked today on an angle in front of the train station so the weight to the right makes it look like it has an inch of gap but it really doesnt. Youd have to see it in person. With the custom spacers it looks TOUGH as HELL

The stock Brembos on the SS's are curved-vane vented rotors, so are the Racing Brake rotors.

So by replacing the Brembo stock curved vane rotors with Stillen drilled/slotted straight vane are we compromising performance/heat dissipation or will the slots and holes make up for having straight rather than curved vanes?

All of the OE Brembo rotors I've seen are pillar vane, not curved vane. Neither use straight vanes. The Stillen Sport Rotors are identical in internal venting to the OE rotors.

If you have curved vane OE rotors, please send me a picture of them. Thanks!

My bad, the stock Brembos are pillar vane, the after market brembos are curved.

No worries, thanks for checking. Far too often, changes are made on the assembly lines without my prior written approval!

Just look at the attachment....that is correct.
Also it was on the paper work from Stillen....rotors are also stamped L/R
I have installed the finest rotors / calipers made for a long time.....
I'll go the with manufacturer's instructions

OK.....I'm done

Not too happy with the Hawk pads (NOT speaking about performance as I just bedded them in this morning and there's more to go). On all 4 corners, only ONE has the low pad metal clip. The OEMs (all marked Brembo) have then on EVERY pad! Oh well...so much for the idiot notification

Install was very straightforward and got great help on how to remove the brake pads...

More pics after I clean The Beast - it is supposed to rain more this week ;(
