    You guys remember these guys, I found them on eBay like over 15 years ago. They have their own website now, I bought the front and rear rotors like 15-17 years ago, got the drilled and slotted and they’ve lasted all these years. Replaced the fronts not too long ago when I did the 98+ brake upgrade. Rears are looking worn so I got their zinc coated slotted rotors and ceramic pads, excellent price too. Will post pics. I remember I got the rear rotors when I did the drum to disc swap. That’s along time ago.lol

        Not bad. The geomet one goes for 404 dollar plus the 15 percent off. Not bad at all.

            How are you liking it?

            Is it really an upgrade from stock?

              I haven’t installed the new ones yet, yes it’s definitely a upgrade. I noticed the fronts right away rear not so much. They do look good though.

                Rotors lasting 15 years? When I was driving about 8 road racing events a year, rotors were a yearly wear item..

                        I'll have to check them out next set of rotors I do. Looks like they have a good selection of cars. I was going to jumpt to doing the CTSV brakes, so I can source my rotors from them. Hell, I just sent them an email to see if they are interested in sponsoring the forum...
