Sonoma, California. (June 18, 2016) – K-PAX Performance Cars is announcing a 50%-off clearance sale on all slotted performance rotors for P1 and P3 Volvo vehicles. The rotors were manufactured by Brembo in Italy specifically for K-PAX Performance Cars, using the highest quality steel. This is the best single-piece direct-replacement performance rotor you can buy for your Volvo.
The P1 rotors are direct-replacement performance parts for Volvo C30, S40, V50 and C70 vehicles with 300mm front ventilated rotors and 280mm rear solid rotors. The P3 rotors are direct replacement performance parts for Volvo S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80 with 336mm front ventilated rotors and 302mm rear ventilated rotors.

The truth about slotted versus drilled rotors
We often get asked whether drilled rotors are better than slotted and the short answer is that it depends. A drilled rotor does provide certain very slight advantages when it comes to initial pedal feel and heat disipation, however the deciding factor is whether the drilled rotor is a two-piece or single piece rotor. In short, a single-piece drilled rotor is not something we would ever recommend. One track day and the reduced material (from the holes in the rotor) combined with heat will cause instant warping and cracking around the holes. The only time we recommend and sell a drilled rotor is when it is a two-piece rotor. Due to the seperation of the hub and the disc, heat and heat expansion will not affect the disc in the same way. In this situation the disc will stay true for much longer and provide a much more consitent braking performance.
So for the very best in braking performance follow the golden rule below:
single piece rotor = slotted
two-piece rotor = drilled
