    i did my brakes last week before we left for the keys but didnt take any day pics, the new rotors look great on the car and the calipers are now blue. the car stops so much better now and i have zero vibration when braking unlike i did with the old cobra rotors. i also clay bar'd the car i havent done anything since having it pro buffed and it was looking sad, it looks like it did the day i had it buffed again.

    Also, please be on top of them. My rotors ended up cracking in 14 spots around the vent holes. :( They just sent me another set and changed them to just slotted since my rears already were replaced by them under warrenty. The holes look cool but if you drive spirited like me then they can get hurt kinda easy. The slotted versions will be more durable.

    the rotors arent on backwards the slots are supposed to go forward thats how they trap air, if they were the other way the slots would be facing the wrong way. you have yours on backwards.

    far be it from me to insinuate that an expert is wrong...

    SO... Bill, YOUR wrong.

    PS the slots are not for "catching air" they are for giving hot gases a place to escape so the pads can remain in contact with the rotor.

    oh well since smart ass couldnt stay away long enough to come on here and say :q:q:q:q to me again i'm gonna leave the :q:q:q:qing things that way hows that.
    and sapper mine didnt have stickers on them!
    funny how i was right about gman's car though.

    and tommy you can go :q:q:q:q yourself, i never claimed, nor asked to be called an expert, you said that :q:q:q:q, i just disagreed with you because i knew it had nothing to do with the cruise control and god forbid someone argues with you , you go off the deep end every single time you dont want to ever be proved wrong, i just was on my brakes, and they are staying that way, i dont care, i'm not gonna start a war with bill and sapper, i own it now, i'm wrong and thats ok with me.

    I would love to put them on my car but they wouldnt look right because I dont have a cutout in my bumper. I think I might just do chrome turn downs.

    Honestly, I'm sure that on our cars, hell even all the way up to F1 :q:q:q:q, the direction of the rotors really doesn't matter. I have seen though where the vanes inside the rotor can make a difference.

    Check the vanes inside as Dan mentioned. Some manufactures have them facing the 'wrong' way though the inside vanes do face the right way...

    It was a question I had the first time I ever bought these kind of rotors before. I believe they should only face that way (how Jamie has them) if there are no slots and the rotors are ceramic. The slots clean the pads and you want that to push the crap to the outside to be discarded, not the inside. Also the cooling principal is different. The rotors get hit on the face with air and it goes in the holes and pushes the air out of the veins.

    I aint starting a war eaither Jamie, just trying to help my cars evil twin out. :p

    Not with mine. Had them for about 3 or 4 years. I don't put a lot of miles on them. Got them off ebay too. My buddy told me I'd be replacing them two months later, but they are still going strong.
