talk about waste, 8 piston would be a waste!! i put my trust in Alcon and Stasis. the sweep area is monstrous enough.
400, 500, 600hp is a waste on the street too, people do it all the time though. in my opinion, you can NEVER have too much brake for the street.
but i didn't buy them for just the street
On taking a look at those rotors again, I question the design.
Why are some slots shorter than others? Wouldn't the short ones be redundant, since they don't span past the edge of the pad? To be most effective, shouldn't a slot extend past the edge of the pad at all times? Otherwise, the slot isn't actually venting anything at the ciritcal instant in time since its entirely covered by the pad!! Right?
Also, wouldn't all the extra little slots introduce more potential stress points?
Well, I still think they look really pretty and I'm sure they perform very well. Its just odd to me that they'd design such an expensive braking system with a rotor like that.
