Testing to gauge interest for this: Powerslot rotors (6spd size 11.4") for 03-07 accord coupes, and matching hawk HPS Pads (not sure of how much life left in the pads yet)

these rotors and pads have been on my car for about 8 months and I love them to death. The only reason I am looking to sell them is to upgrade the front brakes to BBK. if you are still running stock brakes, this is huge upgrade in performance and safety.

the pads were broken in properly according the instructions and i have Never had any brake shudder with this setup. Also I have never put any very hard stops on the rotors/pads and am a pretty gentle driver.

these rotors and pads will simply replace your stock 6speed rotors and pads, no modification necessary. installation is quite easy yourself as well with just a few tools needed (I put these on myself in my driveway last year). the pads should still have life in them so that the rotors would not need to be turned for a while until having to buy new pads.

If interested, post a reply or PM me and I will see about getting these off the car to sell :cool:

here are pictures of the rotors on the car:



these were just pics I had taken before of the wheels but if there is interest I can get some closer shots of the rotors without the wheel.

these rotors are about 170-200 new for the pair

and the pads are about 90-100 new

the rotors I will sell for 100+shipping+3.5% paypal. as for the pads, I will have to check the life of them first.

he has them installed right, but you can run them the other way if you want, its not that critical. the way he has it now, allows all the spent gases and heat to spin away towards the outside of the rotor, rather than the middle, which is what you want.

free bump kai ;)

hmm you do have a point, does anyone have any real literature or link on what the best direction is ( bite vs venting)

demov..

I am going home for the weekend and will try to check the pads sometime next week. I've had the pads on the car for about 15,000 miles now, so ill get actual measurements on the pad thickness when i get back! Thanks

You can check this out. http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/tech_white_papers.shtml
Also check out the FAQ's

From StopTech FAQ's
Which is better, slotted or drilled rotors?
StopTech provides rotors slotted, drilled or plain. For most performance applications slotted is the preferred choice. Slotting helps wipe away debris from between the pad and rotor as well as increasing the "bite" characteristics of the pad. A drilled rotor provides the same type of benefit, but is more susceptible to cracking under severe usage. Many customers prefer the look of a drilled rotor and for street and occasional light duty track use they will work fine. For more severe applications, we recommend slotted rotors.

thanks buddy.

sale for these will be on hold for now.. I am going to keep these rotors on for a while and most likely just sell the rotors in a month or two, since the pads will probably be pretty low by then. the rotors I am looking to upgrade to are just out of my price range right now.
