Installing Drilled and Slotted Rotors + Performance Brake Pads!!!
Choose from EBC plain non drilled rotors or sport rotors in two choices — wide aperture series for cooler running or drilled and slotted disc brakes silent Ultimax USR slotted rotor series.
All EBC rotors including USR Slotted Rotors are British made and are precision machined in the UK.
Rotors are made from high quality grey iron to exacting standards and undergo extensive testing and rigorous.
Slotted rotors can significantly improve brake performance and longevity when used with a matching set.
Having sold hundreds of thousands of brake kits EBC Brakes feel confident their approach is as perfect as it gets.
The benefits of degassing and promoting flat and smooth pad wear are a clear plus in favour of sport rotors but the trick is to opt for a matched set of brakes and not to just expect a slotted rotor to improve braking on its own.
When used with higher friction EBC Redstuff, Greenstuff or Yellowstuff brake pads these rotors will deliver better brakes.
The different slot pattern of the EBC USR Series has made drilled and slotted disc brakes range a popular choice for drivers who desire improved sport braking with minimal air noise from the slots.
The finer slot pattern is what makes these sport rotors more silent in operation whilst still offering pad degassing and removing dirt dust water and debris from the braking area.
Ultra quiet sport slotted brake rotors Manufactured using premium disc blanks mentioned above, the narrower multi slot design of the Ultimax sport rotor and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined creates a quiet running sport here that still has benefits of removing gas, dirt, water and debris and maintaining parallel pad wear.
By preventing these ridges brakes stay more consistent throughout pad and rotor wear life simple physics!
CORRECTING ROTOR DISTORTION, ROTOR MISALIGNMENT AND CURE BRAKE VIBRATION There are two main reasons for brake vibration.
The first is steering geometry issues and the second is installation or hub run-out issues.
GEOMETRY ISSUES — One in slots and bingo cars suffers geometry problems during its life that can affect steering and cause brake vibration.
These are NOT a product check this out issue!!!!!!.
These can happen by simply nudging a kerb or by driving over a pothole.
EBC is not alone in recognising this problem but is the only brake supplier on the planet prepared to offer diagnosis and a SOLUTION.
INSTALLATION OR HUB RUN-OUT ISSUES — These cause what is known as DTV.
The videos below show how to correct for brake vibration caused by DTV Disc thickness variation.
DTV develops in a car after 3000-4000 miles caused by runout built in to the car or due to incorrect alignment of the rotors at install.
This is quite a common fault on modern cars and many cars require this at every rotor change.
Drivers also confuse hub distortion with a rotor quality issue but in 99% of cases the DTV is a car problem, not a rotor quality problem.
You can replace the rotors as many times as you like trying to solve vibration and the problem will only go away for a few thousand miles and then return.
This means you have purchased new rotors in good faith but the problem IS Drilled and slotted disc brakes SOLVED AND WILL NOT GO AWAY PERMANENTLY until you perform this procedure.
After this skimming of the rotor surface you will have smooth brakesmore effective brakes and ZERO vibration.
It is even a very worthwhile practice when fitting new rotors to have all four rotors skimmed into perfect alignment on your car with this inexpensive procedure.
Rotor distortion due to DTV is very common, in fact ONE Here SEVEN CARS has a steering geometry problem either when it is built NEW or after nudging a kerb or hitting a large pothole very common after road surface damage after winter snowy periods.
Well the engineering facts are ROTORS DO NOT WARP, they are made of cast iron, they are very tough and can be run to red heat and cooled time after time and they will not distort, we do this day in day out on our dynos in the EBC lab.
Thats why the whole world still uses cast iron as a vehicle brake rotor material, there has never been anything to beat it and probably never will be.
Pro Cut machines WORK ON BOTH PLAIN ROTORS AND EVEN BETTER ON SLOTTED AND DRILLED ROTORS OF ALL TYPES.
READ THIS TEXT ON PAGE 8 OF THIS LINK TO SHOW PROOF THAT Who are Pro-Cut????
Their machines are used and approved by many major car manufacturers and used all over the world to do exactly what they do best, CORRECT for rotor mis-alignment no matter how it arises on a car.
You cannot achieve this with any other device.
Also just put some of your shoes on the rear of the car, OMG, I cannot believe the difference.
Instead of feeling that the car is slowing down under hard braking I am now held in on my seat-belt.
I just wish I had made the changes earlier.
I wanted to tell you that I absolutely love the pads and rotors!
They are getting older and the stopping power with your pads are incredible.
Thank you my friend for everything!
Well I just wrote a review for the Redstuff pads that I purchased along with these rotors and I must say I AM VERY IMPRESSED!
The quality of these rotors are far superior than anything else out there!
My suggestion to all prospective customers is Purchase The Pads along with these rotors.
IT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE!!!!
Great job guys, I am an EBC customer forever!!!
The chatter was gone and the braking is much better.
Again, the improvement in braking is very noticeable.
Thanks for a great product.
A much needed improvement over factory brakes!
These rotors are really good and a lot more quiet then most slotted rotors.
Just received my new rear EBC USR slotted rotors and Yellowstuff pads for my Audi A4 B6 Quattro Avant.
I wanted to drop you a email and say what a great product both are.
From the packaging to the products themselves, all received in perfect condition.
The rotors look stunning and it will be so nice not to have rusted rotors in the Spring.
Winter can be quite harsh here with -40oC — so we take our driving seriously.
Being British, it is also fantastic to know the product is designed and engineered in the UK.
Next year I will be replacing the fronts and will definitely be ordering EBC again!
The original fitment Bosch discs and pads were noisy and produced much dust on the front wheels.
The discs had worn 0.
The Ultimax discs have only worn 0.
I never thought stopping could be so much fun!
The difference in braking performance over the stock brakes on my 2010 328i X-drive Coupe is simply astounding.
The bite with even light pedal pressure is prodigious.
Stopping from 45 mph happens in one car length.
Thanks for providing a great product.
My USR rotors have at least 25,000 miles on them, I have had three different sets of Pads on them and they have like no wear on them.
They are on a 675rwhp 2011 mustang that gets drag raced and runs 10.
I just replaced them with another set of the exact same EBC rotors, as I am trying a new pad compound, and wanted to start fresh.
Just wanted to let you know how well they held up.

Otherwise, we'll assume you're OK to continue.
This reduces stress which in turn extends rotor life and reduces the tendency for rotor cracking during extreme use.
Stainless bobbins reduce the requirement for regular disc maintenance and ensures the outer ring continues to float freely even when used on the public road with corrosive salts and other road grime.
Computer FEA analysis shows that the utilisation of high-tensile steel bolts to reinforce the bridge brings significant improvements in caliper stiffness compared to a mono-block design.
A stiffer bridge section means less elongation during brake apply, giving a firmer and more responsive pedal feel, especially after a period of harder braking where the aluminium bridge of a mono-block design caliper softens appreciably with increasing temperature.
Low pressure casting is a vastly more expensive production method than conventional gravity casting, but by forcing the aluminium alloy into the mould under pressure the consistency of the finished part is greatly improved.
Powder coat cracks and discolours with exposure to high heat, meaning that powder coated calipers look great out the box, but the colour quickly fades away in use.
ARE EBAY BRAKE ROTORS ANY GOOD? Installation & Review
Blank rotors have a larger area in contact with the pads than slotted or drilled rotors. Therefore they provide better braking at the same temperature. Cooling. To cool the rotor, manufacturers use a vented rotor, not a cross-drilled or slotted rotor.
It here if I am not mistaken.
In my opinion the theme is rather interesting. I suggest you it to discuss here or in PM.
I think, that you commit an error. Let's discuss. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
Bravo, you were visited with an excellent idea
I hope, it's OK
I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. Let's discuss. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
Quite right! Idea good, I support.
