I just wondering if anyone has had anything to do with RDA rotors. I am looking for an upgrade from standard to slotted, and they appear to be a cheap alternative to DBA. The last set of DBA I had lasted approx 6 months before my pads decided to wear a 4mm groove into them, go go Bendix Ultimates and mountain passes.

I asked the same question a few months ago, and got mixed reviews on them.

I am gonna give them a try when I do the brakes on my wagon next week.

Dependes on how hard you are on your brakes. The RDA's that I put on my EL warped in 3,000km never had that with DBA's

mmm well since I tend to drive pretty hard, I think I shall go DBA again, this time I might use a softer pad though, just so I dont wear them out
