Kingmonkey paid $800 for the stockers and then paid R1 to drill them

Thats right! $900 doesn't sound nearly so bad now.

Re: Brembo Sport rotors GROUP BUY! drilled or Slotted! 2012+ wk2 Jeep SRT!

slotted & drilled are not for race only hence why a plethora of vehicles come equipped from factory with them. shit even the run of the mill MB c300 come with them which are FAR from race vehicles.

Yep they sure do, so does the 911 and other LIGHTWEIGHT cars that can use difference in mass to save a little bit of unsprung weight...again it is the right application for the vehicle. Those vehicles are lightweight and have enough thermal reserves to account for the negatives of the mass reduction but take advantage of the lower unsprung weight.

Those rotors also have those holes cast in - not drilled on some drill press in a monkey's garage, in addition to twice the carbon content of regular rotors to avoid heat stress and cracking and the proper pads to account for the increased stopping distances that high carbon content rotors will induce.

Ever see a NASCAR stock car with drilled rotors? Nope. They are slotted for pad out-gassing based on the materials used/per track. Rotors are twice as thick for mass - they would not think of reducing the thermal reserve capability.

Brake technology is not about looking cool - it is science.

Funny part is you have one of the worlds most over-engineered braking systems installed on your trucks already - but you choose to spend money to ruin it for some bling.

Go figure.

2013 ML63 come standard with drilled and slotted rotors. Same size vehicle same performance level. Having the stock rotors drilled will of course performance worse and wont be as strong as stock however if brembo is offering drilled and slotted then Im sure they are not "drilled in a monkey's garage".

So can we get these new and better rotors not slotted or drilled as an option?

Re: Brembo Sport rotors GROUP BUY! drilled or Slotted! 2012+ wk2 Jeep SRT!

not sure....

alos...this is a group buy thread...not a discussion thread please! Please discuss your opinions elsewhere. These are manufactured in italy by world class brake manufacturer BREMBO......not some monkeys garage. These are made from high carbon cat iron and are proven to perfrom better than oem. Slotted and drilled brakes have been used on heavu weight vehicles and specifically SRT Jeeps since 2007. never before has brembo offerd the spport rotors for the Jeep SRT. they just dont take some generic or oem rotor and cross drill or slot. These have been PROVEN to be awesome rotors for enthusiats tha drive their vehicles daily and in spririted driving.

OK Scott...but coming from someone who thinks nothing of putting on 22 inch cast leg-iron wheels and removing forged wheels, I'll take it with a grain of salt.

BTW - Brembo makes great stuff...but they also make shit too...as they have to stay in business and cater to the masses.

Mod away...

I guess it is just that...outlandish claims that cannot possibly be substantiated...you are actually claiming that 22 inch cast wheels with tires are lighter than 20 inch forged rims? This is not even common sense, not on this planet anyway.

But you are right this is not the right forum...I will keep my opinions to your posts about carbon fiber doo dads and stick on's to make your jeep look better...as that is where they belong...if you post it in a public forum you must be looking for feedback? Right?

My apologies to you and your Jeep Scott.

Let's keep this civil. Happy Holidays.

i believe these are clear signs of little peepee syndrome, thus the need to be the "alpha male Mr. Right" is this individual's only priority in life.
