Hey everyone, as some of you may have seen from my posts, i'm building a custom big brake kit for my FRS. I will be using calipers off of a 2015 Cadillac ATS. These are 4 pot brembos. There's a company that sells kits to convert and use them. That being said, i've been researching rotors and i'm having a hell of a time making a decision. First off, while these will see the occasional track day, 90% of the

I might even email both companies and ask them why their product is better. Otherwise I would default to a brand name with a reputation I knew I could rely on, Stoptech/Centric in this case.

[]Sebastian Nounou

I’ve done that. The better company will make it as easy as possible to get their product in your hands.

EBC literally rush shipped me free product because of an issue I was having with a competitors product and service.

[]Robert Sixto

This is another important factor to consider, customer service goes a very long way if an issue should arise.

[]Jon Dagata

You've never heard of DBA? Disc Brakes Australia?

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Haha... Yes, now I know who you are referring to. I'm still having my coffee today.

[]Jon Dagata

haha! Fair enough!

I just took your advice and emailed both companies asking how their product is better than the competition. :)

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Let me know how that goes! :)

[]Robert Sixto

I've actually had both brands on my 6 for my front brakes. The Stoptech I had their cross drilled, which is not recommended for track because of possibility of cracking but I'm guessing you know that. I also had the DBA 4000's. Purely subjective, I felt little difference in the two, but the DBA's I put through much more track use and they held up to the abuse. The temperature indicators I thought were a cool feature, but turned out relatively useless in practice. I didn't really understand what I was looking for, and they only lasted through one session at the track anyway before wearing off completely. If I had it to do again, I'd probably opt for slotted or blank Stoptech and put the extra money into a better pad compound.

[]Jon Dagata

Awesome! Thank you! This is very helpful.

[]Robert Sixto

Happy to help!

[]Antoni Dabrowski

Is the additional 60 dollars worth it? No, I'd do it just because those DBAs look so so nice.

[]Jon Dagata

Right? They look so pretty. haha.

[]Hayden Baker

Stop Tech hands down. DBA is a great company but so is stoptech. The price increase isn't worth it for your planned usage. I have that same stoptech rotor on my Z and beat them to death with zero issues. The curved vanes are far superior to straight vanes and the black coating keeps the center rust free. The DBA is more expensive for features you just won't use or even need.

[]Jon Dagata

Perfect! Thanks for your response. Question: Did you get the cryogenic treated one or no? Is that worth it?

[]Joost Van Dien

Have you looked at EBC? I bought rotors from them and man price quality wise it is amazing. Slotted rotors to take the glazing off more easy. Dimpled can also be good if you use them really hard the gasses that push the pad back will be released thus giving you more effective clamping force.

[]Jon Dagata

Interesting. I believe i've seen the name in passing on websites, but i've never really looked into their product offerings. I'll take a look at them. Thank you!

[]Sebastian Nounou

Blank rotors are best in almost all situations.

I’ve cracked drilled rotors (like all the way) and I’ve also done the exact same to slotted rotors.

Best to stick with blanks. They’re cheapest anyway!

I don’t have much data with the rotor veins. I’ve owned a few different designs and didn’t notice a difference. That said, directional curved veins will get super hot if you put them on the wrong side.

[]Jon Dagata

I've never heard of slotted rotors cracking. Yes, drilled rotors, but never slotted. Slots don't go fully through the rotor like drilled do. I could see maybe some small microcracks forming on some rotors if they get extremely hot and pushed to their limits often. But from my experience this is rare.

[]Sebastian Nounou

Rare indeed for slotted, but I’ve done it in 4-5 spots on both front rotors. After that I don’t trust them unless it’s OEM equipment.

[]Jon Dagata

Interesting. Well, for my purposes I doubt i'll run into that with my fairly limited track time. Maybe a few times a year at most. But thank you for your response. :)

[]Sebastian Nounou

I was driving like an animal, so that contributed. I hadn’t even gotten them to the track.

[]Jon Dagata

Oh. haha. Well damn. Duly noted. :P

[]Christopher McDowell EL

Stoptech centric, and solid/blank rotors from centric have a better heat compound to them too so it would be something to look into

[]Jon Dagata

So you are saying the Centric blanks are better than the Centric slotted?

[]Christopher McDowell EL

Im saying to go to the centric website and research the centric solid rotors, because of their heat compound they may be a better choice for your setup

I tattooed 'HipHop' on my arm and would easily say that 90s golden era and 90s/current underground hip-hop is my stranded-on-an-island, gun to head favorite. Having said that, in addition to hip-hop, I've created playlists on Google Play Music for funk, turntablism, salsa, electronica and rock. Some groups include:

Hip-hop - Czarface, Kool Keith, Run the Jewels, Aceyalone (and pretty much the entire Project Blowed crew), RA the Rugged Man, Atmosphere, MF Doom, Rapper Big Pooh, A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, De La Soul, Wu-Tang.

Funk - Rick James, Heatwave, Brick, Kool & the Gang, Cameo, Brick, Roger & Zapp, Brick.

Turntablism - The World Famous Beat Junkies, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Mix Master Mike, DJ QBert, Cut Chemist.

Salsa - Joe Arroyo, Fruko Y Sus Tesos, Marvin Santiago, Oscar D'Leon.

Electronica - NROTB, Audius, Proxy, Aaren San, Ferry Corsten, Moby, Jack Beats.

Rock - Slayer, Sepultura, Rage Against the Machine, Pantera, Adamantium, Interpol, Nirvana, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails.

And who doesn't love classic rock? Hendrix, Morrison, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, CCR, Steve Miller Band, Neil Young, Santana, Eagles, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton...

Okay YouTube is looking like a more and more hostile environment. If you go that root, I'd suggest having some backups available to you.

Also getting noticed is tough, you'll have to be consistent on uploading videos, and don't let negative comments get to you, but do try and learn from them. If they say something like, your camera angle sucks, try asking them what would be better.

Another thing is quality, the better your kit for recording videos the more likely you are to get views, some people just refuse to watch anything less than 1080p or 4K. Editing is also going to be key, it makes you look far more professional, if you don't know how you should either learn how to or hire someone who does, there are plenty of people on fiver who offer such services.

Other than that be yourself, and do things that make you happy, no one wants to watch someone who's going to events just to get views.

[]Jordan Shuster

Yeah YouTube is a bit of a tough crowd, but it's the easiest/biggest video-sharing site I'm aware of. I do think I'll go the blogging route as well - covering local charity shows and other events like that, maybe even cover my own build as I work on it. B17 Sentra mods aren't exactly common right now, but given the joy that is the MT 2017 Turbo/Nismo Sentra, I'm sure people will become more and more interested in it.

As far as getting noticed, I definitely anticipate that being one of the hardest issues to overcome, next to the negative comments. I like to think I've always had a bit of a thick skin, and I'm reasonable about how much exposure I'll actually get when I first start out. This wouldn't be my first step into the YouTube world ahaha

My boyfriend and a few of my coworkers are really good at editing videos - so hopefully I have that front covered. As far as recording equipment, I'm definitely open to good suggestions for beginners! I certainly don't want to throw my life-savings into equipment right off the bat, but I don't want to wind up with cheap equipment either.

I probably could have worded this post a bit better - I do want to create engaging content, but I didn't necessarily mean "guys hand me a subject and a script and I'll play it out." I was looking for advice along the lines of what you gave me :) Thank you so much for your comment!

I'm still continuing to work on my writing, my photography, and figuring out ways to get more eyes on the page. It's definitely not easy, but I've really enjoyed it. It's gotten me out to more shows and events, and I've met a bunch of folks because of it. So when it's all said and done, even if I never get hundreds of thousands or millions of hits, I still get alot of joy and fulfillment from it. Once you get up and running, share it here, you've got at least one subscriber in me!

I have to agree with what Mister Modtomic said: Figure out what it is you want to do, and do it. There are a lot of channels that pander to what masses want and not what actual car people want. MotionAutoTV is another great channel. He does what he wants to do and does it with passion and I honestly believe he puts out the best videos because it's all 100% genuine. There's no added drama, no doing things because that's what people tell him to do.

It will help you get noticed more if you stick to a niche market. Posting a video about something covered a million times won't get views due to competition. Videos on your car would be perfect since it's very new. Probably not a lot of content for it. You're in a good spot. Just be real.

The summary is I've got a bit high metal content, which may likely be due to fresh rebuild and wear-in (hopefully). Also there's fuel dilution on the high side, which they are saying to wait and see. It's not too unlikely that it runs a bit rich with my current tune, so that could be a factor as well.

Do it! It's a neat piece of data, or tool really, to have. The people at the lab are very responsive and helpful as well.

[]Jake Johnson

After any engine rebuild, the first couple of oil changes are gonna vary a bit from typical samples. Keep an eye on it, but I don't see any reason to be overly concerned. Especially if the car runs fine and there's no bearing material in the oil

[]Robert Sixto

Thanks for the reassurance. It seems to run well, but seeing this report is a nice piece of evidence to back it, and they seem to agree with your assessment as well. Having rebuilt it myself too, it feels really good to see things working out well.

[]Jake Johnson

That's always satisfying. The first pull I did in the rebuilt 302 in the mustang was one of the most satisfying moments as a car guy

[]Tom Armstrong

Molybdenum is usually piston rings so it sounds right regarding break-in. The fuel dilution may be because of the rings as well, otherwise looks good! You should do another sample though

[]Robert Sixto

No rings though, apex seals in this case then? Or maybe side seals are more similar? I'm definitely sending at least one more later this year. I want to send some from the 6 in as well.

Awesome dude, I’m glad it helped!

I was wondering if the rotary might partially explain the fuel dilution, particularly if running rich. I can picture it in my head but I'm not sure I can explain what I'm thinking without drawing a picture...

[]Tom Armstrong

Makes sense

[]Robert Sixto

They do tend to run pretty rich, but I'm assuming the guys at the lab are taking it into account. I did have to update them, since I noticed they marked the oil viscosity incorrectly as 15w-50 instead of 10w-50. This actually improved the fuel dilution and viscosity numbers a bit.

Absolutely. Nothing is going to save you except how you prepare and how early you notice the ice. The later you notice it and the less you prepare, the worse that wreck is. For instance, if I hadn’t prepared for the solid sheet of ice on an right off camber turn on my way to work where the majority of the weight and momentum of the vehicle is relying on the traction of the LF tire, I would’ve been ended up in the ditch across the way

Similar story for me, on the way to work, early morning, coming up south lake shore drive, right by Soldier Field actually. I notice way ahead of me, a couple cars stopped on the shoulder, one right next to the median, and then I realize another is sideways across two lanes with the owner in front of it waving his hands frantically to warn (which is nuts btw)! This was easily a quarter mile away when I saw it and started trying to slow down. I don't know what combination of conditions occurred that made the ice so bad and so slick, but I was only able to bring it to a stop just a few feet from that car, man was I relieved!
