EBC Front/Rear Slotted Rotors...


[tr][td]
[/td][td]EBC Fusion Front & Rear Sport Slotted and Dimpled Brake Rotors

WIDER APERTURE GROOVES | SPECIAL DISC ALLOYS UNIQUE to EBC

DIMPLE HOLE CONSTRUCTION | BALANCED GEOMETRY

ADVANTAGES:
The wider slots on these EBC front rotors actually draws cool air across the pad surface keeping pads and rotors cooler. EBC believes these rotors also expel dust, dirt and hot gases better than fine slots which eventually fill with rust and scale. The blind drilled holes break down surface gases when braking from speed but do not weaken the rotor cross section as can happen with through drilling, thereby lessening the chance of rotors cracking over time and heavy use.

Extra benefits of sport rotors are not often spoken about but are very worthwhile. This is the effect the slots have on maintaining a flat smooth pad surface during the pads wear life. The slots encourage the pads to wear with a more flat pattern and the "Ribbing" common with non slotted rotors does not appear. This removes the "Record groove" effect of pads on plain rotors, particularly around the outer edge and helps pads maintain better contact area with the rotor through their life. As far as EBC is concerned this is the MAJOR benefit of sport rotors over all others as honestly speaking EBC pads have such a high temperature rating they don't NEED degassing. EBC tests all pads to temps over 1000 degrees.

Does EBC make good/decent Rotors...?? And are these decent prices...??

If you attempt to search via the Part #s, it seems to be the common price that sites have listed +/- a few dollars.
So I guess I answered the second question, unless somebody knows where to find them cheaper...

EBC makes another series of rotors that come slotted and dimpled, but have a black coating over the entire surface to keep them from showing the ugly oxidation. I've seen them on the site, but no listing for a Fusion fitment yet...
