There looks like an awful lot of material missing. The MORE slots and holes you have the LESS braking surface you actually have in contact with the pads.

These are GM rotors, custom slotted by frozen Rotors, then cryogentically frozen, then heat treated. I used DTC-30s in all four corners. At night, during spirited driving and aggressive braking sparks shoot out of all four wheels. I am shedding speed REALLY FAST.... from 120/125mph to 35/40mph inside 200 feet with Nitto NT05 (275 front & 315 rear). Stainless Steel lines and Castrol SRF fluid.

My set-up is NOISY. But that is from the PAD selection... not the rotor.

Holy crow, Frozen rotors wants $250 PER ROTOR?? They better be good for that price.

I have a pair on my Silverado. They do like nice, but I wouldn't say there is any performance difference. Especially if you are only changing rotors and not the pads and/or calibers as well.

The black version, ships completely black as in the photo above, and the first time you stop, the pads remove the coating from contact area. So they don't stay black, if that is what anyone is thinking. But being coated, they don't rust or discolor. I've had mine on for over a year now.

Not a great picture, but it gives you an idea...
Maybe not a great pic of the rotors, but I like the angle of the pic and wow, what a beautiful camaro!

oh thank god! I thought it was just me. On my 4th visit 13k miles-they finally replaced the rotors....now at 15k the new ones are warped. :( they are too nice to tell me i'm overdriving it...but my ex-husband was kind enough to explain it to me.

Are these Granatelli rotors or Brake Performance rotors, or are they both the same?

I didn't think so, and didn't mean to say they were. Just from reading the first post asking about Brake Performance rotors, and then a bunch of replies from you, it didn't make sense to me.

Thanks for the clarification!

I've got a set of the Granatelli rotors (as well as Hawk performance pads) on my SS.

I would say they defiantly boost the cars appearance, but as far as performance goes, I'd rate them good. I doubt you will even notice that much of a difference from the stock set. But depending on the warranty offered, they could prove to be a good bet! Here is a direct link of the ones which I purchased.

I am not too sure if you can find them cheaper anywhere, might be worth a search ? For me when it came time to do my brakes, GM (I am in Canada) wanted $2,000 for a brake job, so I picked these rotors up + Hawk performance pads did it myself and $800 later I am good to go!

I have the slotted/dimpled rotors and pads from Brake Performance. They are Black Zinc plated and look great. I am also running the Granatelli stainless steel brake lines. All together it stops great.

Not too sure ? I am pretty sure their site would outline all model year which these would fit though ?

Also just a update on these after 20K ... So far still work great, no complaints. I dont think I notice a huge difference over the stock rotors but there is a slight overall better stop. (They look much cooler too).

Also I notice a slight noise when driving from these as if they're rubbing ? I got it checked out and all is apparently fine. So aside from that noise, I am very happy with the purchase!

Performance Cross-Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors
LIFETIME Warranty Against Materials and Workmanship Defects. 2-YEAR Warranty Against Warping and Cracking.
Unlimited mileage.

The company is in California. They say they make their own rotors so I doubt G has anything to do with it. As to where they are made running a foundry operation in Cali would be expensive. It is possible, but expensive.

I just installed the black Granatelli dimpled and slotted rotors, their stainless steel break lines and had my calipers power coated. They are def better than the factory setup! I need to bleed the system again to get some of the pedal pressure back, but stopping is no longer a white knuckle affair.

Stopping performance shouldn't be any different as you are using the same calibers. Performance would be affected by the pads. Pedal feel would be affected by the stainless lines.

Do any of you guys use these on the track (road course)? Do they hold up good under these conditions?

Also, does anybody use EBC Blue Stuff on these? I was thinking of using the blue stuff because it's supposed to be dual use (track/street) but I heard they crack the DBA rotors. I'm curious if they will do the same to these (guess not with the dimples?). Do the Blue Stuff pads perform well for HPDE and other moderate track use?
