Better brake rotors (track use) - recommendation? Elise Cup (250) oem calipers

Recommended Posts

Hello

After one set of front oem brake pads and one set of pfc´08 I have cracks on my oem brake rotors - (Elise 250 Cup with 2-piston AP brake calipers and 288mm rotors)

Have you any recommendation of good aftermarket rotors - for track use? - Better slotted or grooved than cross drilled... - I think about something like this http://komo-tec.com/Shop/Elise/MK3-Toyota-2011/Bremsen/Bremsscheiben-Grooved-Disc-mit-ABE-KBA.html (?)

Thx for info

Jack

I think you're right about going for grooved/slotted rather than cross drilled for track use.

Have you considered floating bells and larger 308mm discs, better for keeping heat away from hub and lighter in-sprung mass too.

I've just put these onto my S1, but isn't going to be used for track:

My choice is in the end the PFC set "by Komotec" - rotors 295mm - for oem standard 2 pot AP Caliper (a little displaced with backplates included in the set)

Weight is 4,7 Kg compared to 6,0 oem one piece rotors. I hope it will be good :-) ...just burn the rest of old pads and lets go to replace...
