Brake Rotors for Track/Street NC

Postby skeeler » Wed Mar 26, 2014 9:46 am

Brian, I see that some of your NC rotors are suggested for street and autocross users, but not track users. Which of your rotors would you recommend for a car that sees street and track use? Thanks.

We usually avoid drilled for track use, but all our slotted choices will be fine. The DBA4000 are the best, though delivery from DBA can be slow....often weeks to get.

The advantage is higher density, much better longevity with aggressive track pads.

I second the DBA 4000 rotors. I ran the T3 club specs last summer and even with Hawk DTC-60 pads they performed beautifully lap after lap. Even with the DTC-60's beating up on them.

My only real quibble is that the thermographic painted stripes went white hot the first time and stayed white. It's no big deal though and wouldn't stop me from getting another set. Actually, I can't think of any other rotor I would buy for track use.

I am looking for a different set of pads this year though.

Thanks. I'll order a set of the DBAs before my next track day.
