Need to replace rotors, and trying to decide what to get on a tight budget.
The car is mostly track, with occasional street use.
Running the stock AP/Brembo setup.
At this time I am not really concerned with more stopping power. I don't think I am yet using what I have to its full extent. My main objective is to be able to run long sessions.
Currently (running on worn out thin stock rotors) I start boiling fluid after 20 min at NHMS or 35 min at Palmer.
I decided to keep the OEM replacement Centrics in the back but need to decide on which 288mm solid 2-piece option to go with for the front.
The options I am considering:
1. elise-shop.com Aluminium Bell Brake Discs: $285
2. eliseparts.com ALUMINIUM BELLED DISCS S2: $335
3. BOE HP Rotors: $525
4. DBA 5000: currently on sale for $400
Only Elise Shop and DBA are specifying weight: 5kg and 5.5kg respectively. I wonder why others don't.
Do EP or BOE rotors offer any performance advantage over ES?
Are there any other budget options worth considering?
BTW, for the pads I am considering CL RC6 or Cobalt XR4.
Also thinking about BOE stainless steel pistons and brake lines.
