I want to say..

They're an awesome brake company. I've worked with quite a few of their kits.

Haha! Join the club, I'm sanding mine down and painting them with engine paint when I get back from the Azores later this month.

Yes they use adonized hats.

T6-6061 5000tons cold forged aluminum.

They use the largest aluminum hat possible, for the maximum reduction in unsprung weight.

What advantages would one expect from running these particular rotorss over the stock setup?

Reduced weight/rotating mass...typcially a few pounds so a bit more acceleration, a bit easier to stop since less rotating mass..

Excellent venting...

etc..

It would be alot less rotating mass. Say the rotors are 5lbs lighter. Then you times that by 3 i beleave it is. So it's like there is 15lbs less for the motor to move on each corner.

Scott, you said these are a front upgrade in your title... would they not fit the rears as well on the R's?

Rear's require a different application due to the internal retarded Parking brake.

I already went for lightweight wheels...plus my rotors won't pass inspection...

Tempting...


Plus they look badass.

I was afraid of that... guess I'll have to take a weekend to paint my hats someday...
