Ever considered these brakes?

Just seeing if anyone has these, "the price is too good to be true"
but I never heard of them, anyone?

The info on there page sound legit. I think next pay day I will pick some and try them out. Can't beat the price, I'm not going to be racing and to test them not in traffic, maybe an old parking lot. If I get them I will let everyone know how they work.

Personally, I would just get slotted rotors and avoid cross drilled all together. Reason being is that regardless of the name brand, they eventually crack from repeated wear and tear. Besides, what good is it if you only get a very miniscule benefit from it? Cross drilled only cools it down a tad bit, plus our daily cars dont have the correct ventalating systems to deliver the extra "cool air" needed to utilize them to their full potential.

I'd say pick up a set of Power Slot rotors (for 240 and 300Z) although I dont think they have rotors for 5 lug 240, just 4 lug... why? I dunno, but theyre losing a HUGE chunk of the market.

But if you have 4 lug or you did a Z32 upgrade, go with Power Slots, we used their rear rotors for our Z32 rear conversion. Definitly worth every penny and cost way less than Brembo. If you want to pay close Brembo price, they will cryo treat the rotors for you too.

EDIT: Also, dont fully trust ebay sellers. This guy I bought items from sold me cheapy Chinese crap. I sent them back for exchange and its been a month now and no response from him. Paypal wont reopen my claim so Im stuck in a rut and out 200+ dollars.

obviously anything with holes or slots will reduce brake life, but the point of having special rotors is to reduce heat by removing thin films at a time, and wiping off excess dust, thus removing more of the pad. my drilled/slotted rotors wear my brakes (cheapa$$ $15 raybestos) twice as fast as racing pads, or if i kept ****ty pads with OEM rotors.

Thanks for all the input,

I've looked at the Powerslot and Brembos, very good brakes, I have Powerslot on my Celica, of course I only have it on the front cause Toyota was gay and put drums (rear) on the GT.

Not really... they dont have a specific direction from those air vents (so to speak) its just a hole in the lip really...

Correct or should I say, proper ventalation comes from the front (front end of the car) and directed into a vent tube / piping and right to the wheel well, directing the "cooler air" at the calipers and part of the rotor.

yeah anyone can make that, but dont you think its pointless unless youre racing. my 240 is for my daily driving, i doubt i will ever have time to take the car to a track.

It is actually beneficial to still create the venting tubes / piping. It actually helps out more than having cross drilled rotors... to an extent. Now I might buy cross drilled IF they cryo treated the rotors. Hell, I'd buy any component that is cryoed. Who has ever seen a non-cryoed SR rev up to 11K and not blow up? Thats right... cryo-treated blocks FTW baby!
