Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

Live in Oz looking at doing lowered springs (RM mid - running 295/40 20).
Want that tuff look and was thinking of Stop Tech slotted.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

Don't recommend drilled because over time you will at the very least get micro-cracks around the drilled holes. There is no performance advantage either. Dimpled rotors would be better if the look is what you're after.

I would guess that is because they are name brand. Plenty of pictures of aftermarkets doing this. R1 even recommends dimpled over slotted if this is a concern for you. The micro-cracks aren't dangerous or anything, they just look bad IMO.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

Stop tech are not just a cheap drilled out standard disc. They make some big race brake packages.
Thanks guys!

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

iirc the Brembo guys don't even warranty their drilled rotors, only their slotted ones. Waiting to see if the new SRT 2017 optional performance brake rotors will fit with the older ones.

They may, but I know one thing they will be way over priced compared to good quality aftermarket.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

I just have a conceptual problem of taking ok rotors from someone and having a 3rd party mar them up to 'look the part' which seems to be the norm.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

I have the StopTechs slotted on mine and they were perfect out of the box and almost a year later they are still great. 2 sets of Powerstops had shimmy and were right at the limit of run out. Clean hubs and even tried to index them. The Stoptech hats are black coated and even after a New England winter towing the sleds almost 6K they still look brand new Flawless.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

Holes are from drilled a centric Rotor which 80% of these companies are doing and rebranding them as their own.

You want something cast and also balanced this is just one of the Reasons the 2pc Racing Brakes are nice you will never see that stress crack issue.

Re: Thoughts on Stop Tech cross drilled rotors

What CHad says. THat's why OEM drilled Brembos for me only. They are cast with holes. No aftermarket crap.

However I'd much prefer to have his super light race brakes, but I don't want to spend the money.
