Default eBay rotors for the track

Anybody try something like these out for the track?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Subar...Q5fAccessories

I've read that Autozone blanks are the way to go for a track car... but they do not make them for STi Brembos. I'm considering these... bad idea?

EDIT: Now leaning towards Centric Premium rotors.

I'd go with this:

, or even this:

http://knsbrakes.com/carSeriesDetail...Single%20Rotor

first.

At least you know the source...

I've known guys who track on Centric rotors all the time and have never had any problems. I'd go with those if you're really strapped for cash.

I run centrics, and ebay rotors all the time. The thing about the track is, with maybe the exception of going with a really high-end rotor, you're simply destroying the rotor so quickly, any subtle variations really don't show through.

This was on a WRX mind you, an STI may very well be different.

4.5 days out of DBA 5000 before the stress cracks split wide open, or 4 out of an ebay/generic rotor. Ebay, all day everyday.

For the $30 or so, I'd probably go with the centrics posted. Good guys, no slots, and returns will be easier, god forbid.

I'd definitely go with cheap blanks over cheap slotted rotors. I always bought my centrics and NAPA blanks through KNS brakes, as well as most of the pad brands I tried. he's got pretty low prices and a fairly wide selection of pads.

agreed. especially for a track day. one thing you don't want going on the track is your brakes.

KNS Brakes is awesome. Very good customer service and prices.

I use centric premium blanks on the track all the time and love them.

+1 for blanks + good pads. ducting should be a high priority as well.


i found a fantastic site for cheap rotors: brakeperformance.com. my blanks come in tomorrow, they have a 1 year warranty against warping/cracking. $80 shipped for the front rotors for my e36 m3. the more pricier slotted/drilled rotors, they had lifetime warranty against warping/cracking. LOL!
