I had them on the front and rear before the upgrade to 4 spotters on the front. I managed to crack one of the front rotors,when they were replacedthey went onto Jase's car. They were ok, but are nothing flash compared to my current setup

hi
i had the drilled and slotted disks on my xr8 stopping was excellent but after 6 months they had cracked between the drill holes ..
i guess it depends on how hard you work your brakes.
but next time i will just go the slotted ones instead..

i must say they do look great with the open spoke wheels..

yeah, probably baught them for 50% looks and 50% cos they might stop better.. :lol: 8-) thought it was a bit weird having cross drilled and slotted on the front and not the rear.. so when my rear brake pads wore down to metal contacting with metal i didnt realy care..(hated the grinding noise though) damage occurred on the standard disc's but all the better compelling reason to HAVE to get new disc's.. :wink: DBA cross drilled and slotted disc's.. :lol:

Have had mine on for 6 months, I needed to replace the originals any way so i thought I might as well go for the DBA. I like them, although I noticed the brake dust builds up on the wheels super fast. I got Bendix pads, I might try some kevlar pads or something when they need to be changed next.

Hmmm yeah i was looking into slotted rotors a few weeks back. But then my funding ran literally dry, but now is like a bloody flood. So they may be comming some time soonish i hope.
I even got qouted $300-$350 to replace all brake pads with bendix pads (non-slotted, just standard rotors/braking system).

Same, I have got a bucket of water in the garage with a wheel brush in it that I use at least twice a week.

They do look awsome behind open wheels.
