Post Legacy GT cross drilled rotors

I've been all over looking for these but cannot find them. Can anyone point me to a link for cross drilled rotors, front and rear... oh yeah... and affordable. I do wish to keep my stock calipers and pads for now.

Thanks

Try these guys and remember a lot of Impreza parts will fit.

http//www.jcsportsinc.com

I was looking for the same thing - I was told to try brake lines and pads first - then change rotors. This is part of my answer from JC Sports:

"As for cross drilled vs. slotted, it's more
of a matter of preference. Think of the brake pad as a slice of cheese.
Would you rather grate it or slice it? Slotted rotors tend to catch rocks
and stuff, but aren't as hard on the pads as crossdrilled rotors."

these guys should have them...
www.spomotorsports.com


and my advice would be to NOT buy anything from JC sports... do a search in the general forum... and decide for yourself... not the most reliable vendor...

I second that red-hot emotion.

Unless you can drive to JC's shop and get it yourself, don't even bother with them.

They've had a terrible rep for shipping in the 2+ years i've been in the Subaru scene.

If you want to get either x-drilled or slotted brembos you can still get in on the GB that I set-up. Here's the link to more info :

Ok, time to get out my soapbox again. Crossdrilled, or slotted rotors are really not necessary, anymore.

Rotors were not drilled to promote cooling - in fact, the drilling doesn't do much to promote cooling. Rotors were drilled because traditional brakepad materials would out-gas when heated rapidly, which would force the pad away from the surface of the rotor. The holes were drilled to allow the gas to escape, and keep the pad in contact with the rotor.

Unless you're doing it strictly for looks, you're just throwing your money away.

Actually, x-drilled allows for water vapour to evaporate during wet braking. Tests have shown that the x-drilled rotors will outbrake a non-drilled rotors under the same conditions. I know this b/c I've actually done measurements with all of my cars before and after x-drilled rotors

I know that ISR, SPD, and SPO motorsports all have cross drilled or slotted rotors for the Legacy!

Jackson, Don't know who passed this link on to me, but before you spend a bunch of $$$ on such parts, take a look at: http://www.bira.org/ They are primarily Porsche/Audi, but if you follow the info link to technical ramblings and other pages I think you'll find it well worth the time. Very interesting paper on why not to put FACOS (Fully Adjustable Coil-Over Suspension) on a street car may generate some interest from this forum as well. Have fun!
This one is very interesting too! http://www.frozenrotors.com/index.html

Thanks for the link, nubaru. Saw the "tech ramblings," and I agree wholeheartedly. If you're going to get coilovers and then not take the time to set them up properly, they're a waste of money. Ditto if you aren't going to fool with them to get what you need from the car.

I suppose that some are going to construe it as an argument against coilovers on street cars, period, but too many of us know better.

Kevin, I didn't take the paper as condemnation at all. More of a "you'd best know what you're getting into" caution, and that's why I was eager to share it. Must admit it did cause me to consider what a hassle the Seasonal adjustments or street/race/street changeovers must mean if one wishes to get it right. Brought my level of respect for you up a notch too, as well as explaining your recent posts re; ride height and your ensuing doubts about having it all "right". More patience and perseverance than I could muster! That's why I'm lookin' at the AGX/WhiteLine Select route and relax with a nice level of improvement and the end.(til next time!)
You continue to be an inspiration to the rest of us, and I'm eagerly waiting for the first installment of " <FONT face="Comic Sans MS">gtguy And The Search for The Holy Supercharger" hehehe</FONT f> Love ya man!

If you want, you can cheat and go with stock ride heights, including front to rear differences, minus however much you want to lower the car, and usually not be too bad off.

And don't get me started about forced induction. I'm sort of waiting to see what happens with the new GT. Barring that, might be time for a drive to Jersey and Rallispec in a year or so.

And to get back on topic, I did have my CD rotors cryo'd, at 300 Below. We'll see how that goes.

this may be getting a little off-topic, but without a shop like rallispec i would not have gone with coilovers. they did everything: the install, corner-weighting, and alignment. i'm the type of person who likes to play around with settings and stuff but usually makes everything worse.
