Re: What rotor options are available for the P2 S60 R (Helmut Ranff)

Stock? Slotted? Cross Drilled?... There are rotors for it, as factory is always an option... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> Cheers bud... I was there just 7 hours ago... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Here, I don't feel I was helpful enough on my first response, especially factoring in inebriation...

Re: (Geisler14)

Thanks for all of the responses. Last night was a big night as you can see I posted at 0200 in the morning. <p>Posi makes good brake pads especially their low dust ones for street cars

Re: What rotor options are available for the P2 S60 R (Helmut Ranff)

Just sent this e-mail to DRT about the possibility of a group buy. We'll see.<p>I am a member of the Swedespeed.com forums and your products have recently been a topic of discussion. There would in all likelyhood, be several members who would be interested in your rotor and pads. What kind of group buy discount could we get for your products. Here is the link for the discussion on your rotors. <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117218" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117218</A><p>Look forward to hearing from you<br>Thanks-<br>Bob

Re: (Lightspeed)

I bought a set of 4 slotted rotors from DRT recently. I found the price to be good and the shipping/delivery/timing was pretty good too. <p>I got the fronts as OEM "Volvo" rotors which were slotted, and the backs as OEM-Equivalents which were slotted. I had SS lines and new (Hawk HPS) brake pads for all for corners put on at the same time.<p>The <B>rear </B>rotor/new pad combination didn't work exactly right. Either the pads or the rotors were too thick - my guy had to grind down the brake pads a bit (like 1/16th I think) to fit them over the new rotors. I can't say for sure if it was the Hawk pads or the rotors which were too thick. The front OEMs had no problem.<p>I got black powder coating and it tooks great with the black sapphire exterior. I took some pictures and I think I promised to post them for someone, but I just haven't yet.

You want 2 piece rotors? <br><A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=EST02&Product_Code=VLB-860-101&Category_Code=VL-V70-br" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/...70-br</A><p>or<p><A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=EST02&Product_Code=VLB-860-201&Category_Code=VL-V70-br" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/...70-br</A><p>You can find some for the rear, but the "parking brake hat" on the rotor can be an issue.<br>

Re: What rotor options are available for the P2 S60 R (Helmut Ranff)

I'm doing a set of custom rotor hats to fit 355mm slotted rotors from AP racing for the fronts. Using stock calipers with custom brackets to fit. Just sent the designs to a CNC shop and waiting for quotation.<p>For the rears I'll be trying out frozen slotted rotors.<p>Going to switch to carbotech brake pads - they make them for the Rs now <A HREF="http://www.ctbrakes.com/brake-compounds.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ctbrakes.com/brake-compounds.html</A><br>Apparently the UK folks seem to say that these ceramic pads are even better than PFC and more friendly on the rotors. XP12 compound would equate to PFC 05 compound in terms of brake torque. XP16 could be too much of an overkill...

Re: What rotor options are available for the P2 S60 R (blot)

I purchased 4 cross drilled rotors from DRT last summer for $400 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I could not pass up the price <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The rotors have been fantastic so far! I also had them cryo treated as well.<p>Hope this helps you guys get a better price in the GB.
