What is the real performance advantages of two piece rotors vs stock setup?

They are lighter. Thats about it.

You can buy the braking surface only and they are cheaper than buying all new rotors. So you pay more up front, but you are trackin like a mofo and replacing rotors, it is a good route.

And if you are a sig mod whore like 154 :bouncy:, you can add Badass UUC 2 Piece Slotted Rotors

Don't aluminum hats also help dissipate heat better as well?

Actually that would be Badass UUC 2 Piece Slotted Rotors

And your just jealous! By the way, I have more but they only give me enough room to list the good stuff. I dont have anymore room to list the rotors even if I did get them : (

as Borat would say, "VERY NIICE, HOW MUCH?" ... would we have to powdercoat the blue hats? Or can we choose a diff color, i.e. black or silver?

Will you still dole these out according to the waiting list or is it a first come first served basis? I don't want these bad boys to stock out on me.

I'm not a fan of the blue, but they look great other than that. How much weight savings are we talkin' here?

I'd like to know that as well. I do believe however from what I've read in previous posts, that the real advantage is the ability to disapate heat. The guys who run the V on the track talk about the calipers turning gold from being cooked by brake heat. Even though the brakes are one of the strongest features of the car, these rotors would be a nice upgrade if you drive the car hard for long periods of time.

Looks like these are going to be $795.00 per pair. the blue color is UUC's "company" color, thats what they like to use. the advantage to the 2 piece floating design is less unsprung weight and much better heat dissapation. these will only be available for the fronts

Hey Naf! (sorry to threadjack luke but.. ) I thought you said you were sellin your V and were never going to slum it w/ us again! I remember reading some thread of yours stating that... did you change your mind? Did it fall through?

Nice to see you are still lurkin sir!

Just got the first set and they look great in person. I weighed one to compare it to a stock rotor and it is 7 lbs less (18 vs 25)!! anyone looking to try these for me at a fairly significant discount give me a call (I would prefer to talk price over the phone) 703-824-9670

UUC 2 piece full floating rotors are now in stock. $795.00 plus shipping. call me at 703-824-9670 to order. hear is a note from UUC on the advantage to a 2 piece floating rotor....

Floating rotors from UUC are suitable for street, track, or race use.

The "floating" design separates the central rotor hat from the outer disk friction ring, allowing the disk to expand radially with heat without a rigid connection to the central hat. As the rotor disk runs much hotter than the hat, the normal expansion can occur without distortion. This results in better braking performance and better rotor and pad wear. Additional benefits include lighter weight.

It says for the front only, why cant they be used in the back? Won't it look wierd having the fronts 2 piece and the back 1 piece?

The parking/emergency brake hub on the rear prevents the use of the 2-piece design.

Too bad these weren't in stock last week when I replaced mine with the gm perf ones...I like them a lot but it would make the car seem off a bit. The single piece rear rotors from UUC are black and then the fronts would be 2 piece and blue. It may not look bad in person but I'd have trouble sleeping

Not to piss on anyone's parade, but they are bling, pure and simple.

For the price of the set at $800, you can buy 4 to 5 sets of Centric 1 piece rotors. The heat dissipation and unsprung weight are very minor factors in the equation.

Now if you are buying them for bling factor or "wow" factor, go right ahead but please don't be led down the path of "they are for better performance" or "they will save you $ in the long run because you only replace the rings".

Otherwise they look like a fine piece of equipment!

Yep, that's why I picked up a set of 4 2-piece rotors for my race car. I wanted more bling...

It's not as pure and simple as you might think. Your comments would be more accurate for vehicles categorized for "street use". Many of our cars see mixed street/track and race usage, in which case performance is the rule not the exception.

Out of curiosity, do you know the price of the replacement rotor component of the two-piece rotors?

I am talking about HPDEing as well. I'm a certified track instructor as well as hold road race liscences.

No one on here "races" their cars on track, perhaps they HPDE them, but I haven't seen any REAL race cars on here.

Sorry but folks who HPDE and/or race just replace the rotors similar to replacing the pads.

However if it makes you feel better about your purchase that you are "racing" your cars and have the bling to go along with it. by all means go for it.

To an extent you are correct, however I'm sure that there are those here who would disagree with you. I'm one of them. As far as I'm concerned, bling on a race car is irrelevant. On my street car (V), these would be considered cosmetic components and yes they look great. On one of my EFI big block cars, not so much. On a good friend's highly modified GT2, the big ceramic rotors are absolutely NOT cosmetic items.

I'm not questioning neither you or your credentials, however certifications and licenses aside, if it makes YOU feel better to "piss on someone's parade" as you put it, then I guess you've achieved your purpose. But you didn't need me to point that out to you did you?
