    EBC Sport Rotors / Cool Carbon Pads

    This maybe should be in the Brakes / Suspension section; but since my intention is to improve my breaking at the track, I decided to put it here.


    I've done one HPDE day with cool carbon pads and OEM Stock Rotors. Performance was surprisingly good. I wasn't going 100% though, cause I still had certain feelings that it'll over heat and fade, but could've just been paranoid.


    I ordered a set of EBC Sport Rotors, and will be trying out this combo on Feb 4th at PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway). Will probably update this thread on how it goes, I just installed and bedded them in, so hoping for good results.

    They look nice. Are they black?
    At least they come as a left and right disk version, instead of the BMW performance set... Which I still have to take to the track.
    Still winter here.

    A Brembo big brake kit is over 3x the costs of this solution.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    It's in the right spot since we do brakes/suspension based on the chassis. Nice post!

    They're black coated, but with time they turn normal color, it's just a protective coating.

    good to see that is working out for you...
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Honestly didn't weigh them.. I can say they "felt" lighter but that's just not good enough. I needed some rotors, mine were already just about to go bye bye from all the HPDE days.
