Default May 2011 Track Prep

Fast forward to Present Day 2011!

Weather has been crap March/April so I didn't do any track days.

Getting warmer so I decided to put on my new rotors Johann @ Girodisc in Bellingham hooked me up with. Way better than the DBA 5000 stuff everyone is running for this price range. 2 piece rotor so it weighs 16.5lb compared to the 20.5lb stock rotor. Curved directional vane design so it actually pumps air from the inside > outside of the rotor unlike the "kangaroo paw" DBA 5000's or pillar vane stockies.

28mm min thickness.




OEM (20.5lb) left. Girodisc (16.5lb) right. Reduction of 4lb unsprung weight each side. Total 8lb. Better acceleration!


Up-close laser etched.


Hardware up close. Spring to reduce noise and directional vanes


Final result.
