Re: R1 Concepts E-Line Drilled/Slotted Rotors

Looks sweet, I know where I will be buying my next set of rotors! What pads did you get?

Re: R1 Concepts E-Line Drilled/Slotted Rotors

Looks good. As mentioned, what pads did you go with and did you get them from R1 or elsewhere. I 'm looking at the Hawks HPS series. Let us know which you went with and how they hold up.

Re: R1 Concepts E-Line Drilled/Slotted Rotors

over time you will notice that the pad doesnt touch the rotor all the way across. so at the outer edge and the inner part closest to the hat/hub get some rust when washed and such. now the part that the pad TOUCHES the rust goes away first time you hit the brakes......well NOT in those areas so you get to rust circles. the same happens with the slots but they do go away from the dust as you drive but NOT the rings.

i have been looking at rust neuralizers but they say not to use on something that gets hotter than 200....and i would bet your rotr at times get way hotter than 200 degrees.

anyway i like them and all but i need to get rid of this rust......may just try paint IDK.
