My co worker's friend actually owns the company out in Cali. I just finish breaking them in. I will start beatin on them and see if they will hold up. I don't know if he'll hook anyone else up but i got them for under 400 shipped. Yea I plan on hanging out with you guys on the 4th.

I like the slots in the rain. They clean up quick in the wet compared to stock blanks.

To the OP:

Please let us know how these rotors perform, especially under "spirited driving" conditions, or even better, on the road course. I have long been looking for a nice drilled and slotted rotor option (cheap too) that will not warp or crack at the first sign of hard driving. Use these babies hard for a couple of weeks and then give us an update on how they are holding up. If we get a good review from you, I very well might pull the trigger on these.

I have the same rotors but Slotted only - Got them from Porterfield for just under $500. I installed the HP+ in the Front and HPS in the rear, but A BIG difference, just a little squeek in the front though, but well worth it!

OP How do you like your INVO'S? Im thinking of getting a set.....

crappy cell phone pics - Ill post up better ones later

$424 for all corners is a helluva deal, anyone want to buy my GM CDRs for $423, they have yet to see a track day and the hats are semi-painted, don't ask!!!

Ha, crazy that's like three blocks away from my parents house. I'll have to stop by there when I go on leave next month. By the way what's the difference between "arrow dynamic" and "rounded slots" I wouldn't mind getting slotted rotors. I'm staying away from drilled rotors. I had a set of Baer rotors start to crack after a day at the Dragon when I took my Vette up there.

HEY OP - need to know the status of these rotors please... how are they holding up? any problems? my back brake pads are on the metal, and i need to change them out in the next 2 or 3 days tops... rotors need replacing too, so i'm going to be purchasing these... or the GM slotted.

need to know your opinions on these after having them for a few months now.

please advise asap!

Im not the OP, but I've got the same Brand Rotors just not Drilled - Slotted Only w/ HP+ Front and HPS Rears, and so Far there AWESOME. No complaints at all... I've done some heavy braking, and the response, and feel is great. Have not seen the track yet, but in the Canyons, there is def. a noticeable difference.

I have them too. Only driven about 3000km since I've had them on ( about 7 monthes), but they are great so far.

how is there a noticeable difference? were you metal on metal with your last set? did you go to race pads?

I picked them up from Porterfield - there local to me. Maybe give them a call - www.porterfield-brakes.com

I feel alot more bite, and less fade - I have HP+ in the Front and HPS in the rear, so More of a Race Pad up front than what I had before (stock) I also flushed the Lines and added New Stuff.

Sorry been working 12+ hour days. So far soo good. been beating on them as much as i can without going to the track. I agree with CtsVrod, feel alot more bite. But i still wanna get them red hot before i giv a real report. I just now saw another member with problems with them. I'll give them a call and see if they can do something for him.
