Re: Raybestos R-300 slotted rotors and pads
So far, I'm loving my new setup (R-300's + Thermoquiets). Brakes feel tight and smooth. The R-300's produce a satisfying sound under the right circumstances. Almost like a knobby tire on fresh blacktop. Like I said before, I'm not real happy about the vent castings. One was really rough and the other was not bad at all. That uniformity makes me question the Chinese standards (which I already did). But all in all, I feel like braking all around has drastically improved over the stock rotors with some old Duralast pads that were on it when I bought it.
I think you'll like the R1's just as much. I'd stick to slotted and not bother with drilled. If you're sick of warping rotors, you'll hate cracking one! I never felt like the WK brakes were good enough anyway. ESPECIALLY towing my boat, they felt extra mushy then.
