Well I hope Powerslot didnt get their rotors from Brembo! My Powerslots are CRAP, from a CRAP company, with a CRAP warranty. Cant wait to get them off (after WASTING $140 on them) and put on some good ones. :mad :mad :bhkommon_sense said:brembo makes great rotors. many other companies that offer cross-drilled/slotted/etc. buy their rotors from brembo and then machine them.
Where did you find this?Iceman16v said:Hey does anyone out there have experience or heard anything about Brembo blank replacement rotors? Are they good quality? Won't warp after 6 months? Just wondering cause I found them for $30 each front, $23 each rear. Thanks!
powerslot buys their rotors from wherever they can... my only complaint about brembo blanks is that the first time it rains, they will rust and look terrible... thats why i got the carbotech rotors with the coated hubs. 1yr later and they still look fine.Iceman16v said:Well I hope Powerslot didnt get their rotors from Brembo!

Cools sounds good. How is the rusting? Very bad? Does anyone know of a good coating to spray on the rotor to prevent that nasty rust?96silvercx said:I installed brembo blanks (front) on my teg LS 2/12/05.... hit the road this past wkend 4 hour trip. Its scary how my car literally 'stops' on a dime. I replaced all the brake pads with Hawk HPS ceramic.... (new line, no dust...really) It leaves a lit'l dust...real lite. I can wipe my rims with a dry towel in about 5mins. None of that dark smudge crap you have to scrub off. I'm still in disbelief.
Oh sorry...yes the brembo blanks work great and the hawk hps...
Do it again.theflipimage said:did that already...
Were the pads bedded in properly? If they weren't smoking and stinking, then the answer is "No."could there be another reason?
each pad is different, but what you describe sounds abnormal.is there a way to adjust the pedal itself maybe?
do your brakes bite right away - almost at the top of the pedal stroke?
Sounds like you need to bleed the brakes...mine brake VERY gradually, then almost at the bottom of the stroke, they bite like MAD!
i don't really like this as it doesn't feel very reassuring.
