had the same problem and solved it by buying ceramic pads from a reputable manufacturer. ceramic pads as opposed to metal content pads leave less deposits on rotor.Nearly all rotor blanks are imported from asia and machined in end user country.Stick with a brand well renowned.Cost should not be a factor regarding brake components
if you decide to replace pads and rotors bed them in.Correct procedure to be found on Bendix website.While there check out BENDIX general CT stealth advanced technology (ceramic) disc pads.Even with standard rotors they are exceptional.With slotted rotors they work well offroad too
did you bed your brakes in? 1.make 8-10 gentle stops from 30-15mph. at 30 sec. intervals. 2.make 8-10 moderate stops from 45-30mph. at 30 sec. intervals.3.make 8-10 hard stops from 55-65mph. to 25mph. at 30 sec. intervals
I use bendix CT(ceramic)stealth advanced technology disc pads and slotted rotors to suit.You can use your existing rotors but it is best to upgrade to ceramic compatible rotors.Ceramic pads shed very little dust as opposed to metal content pads so your mags will stay cleaner longer
Procedure should be same as it´s shown in this Utube video, I hope it helped. Boris
If you look at this image, it appears the entire thing has to be pulled apart to get to it:
Blank rotors provide the best braking during regular operation. Slotted rotors are such because they improve performance during heavy and prolonged braking. If it were my car, I'd rather spend the money on high-heat racing pads and race-grade brake fluid (which boils at a much higher temperature). Other things to consider are steel braided hoses and ...
Contact area 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. cross-drilling puts holes perpendicular to the flow of air - they have no cooling effect ...
I would recommend you get slotted, but not drilled rotors. Regular rotors will work fine for typical track use. What is more important is the type of brake pad you purchase to go with your disks. The reason I suggest not getting drilled rotors is, they have a tendency to crack at the holes due to stress risers. They will not last as long as you'd like them ...
