Quote from: JB21 on January 4, 2023, 13:56Just look at the lap times the top 5 1ZZ race series lads are putting in, only a couple of seconds in it versus what I can push out in my 2zz

Quote from: threepot on January 4, 2023, 15:59once you get into the type of pads with a compound that survive nuclear fallout or space shuttle re-entry temperatures the grooves are just a reduction in disc surface area thus pad contact patch, and also become the focus/concentration point to start the crack.
Quote from: LeEdFollow on January 4, 2023, 22:51Understand what you're saying but even in a full year of track days and touristenfahrten I don't spend £500 on brake pads so happy to let the slotted discs eat them up in exchange for better stopping power.
QuoteCons:There are not many cons to having a blank rotor. Some drivers have a misconception that they should choose slotted or drilled rotors over blank rotors for superior performance.
Quote from: Alex Knight on January 4, 2023, 23:47That's mental. I couldn't agree less with this philosophy. You must have money to burn.https://www.r1concepts.com/blog/how-to-choose-the-right-brake-rotor-pattern-blank-vs-drilled-and-slotted-vs-drilled-only-vs-slotted-only/
Quote from: shnazzle on January 5, 2023, 08:46I never used it on track but to be fair... The way I drove a few years ago I didn't need to. No call for that shit... Good thing I grew up.
Quote from: LeEdFollow on January 5, 2023, 08:51Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like the yellowstuff I bought for the rear of my car wont last long at all.I'm taking it to Brand Hatch next month (first track day of the year and first one out in the Roadster) so I am now fully expecting the yellow stuff to need replacing after that lol
Quote from: JB21 on January 5, 2023, 09:36Yellows lasted ages on the rear of mine coupled to MTEC grooved/dimpled discs. Easily 5 days and 500+ road miles and that was running slicks on track.
