Disc Brakes Australia Front 4X4 Survival Street Series Slotted Rotors for 06-08 Jeep® Commander XK

Catalog #: 56218.8203
Description

DBA’s entry level enhanced performance rotor, offering improved braking straight out of the box. Available with slotting to improve pad bite and reduce brake fade and – in the Gold variant – with slotting and cross drilling for maximum cooling and an attractive, aggressive appearance.

Details

Slotting increases the bite of the pads. This helps pull the car up more quickly. Used on its own, the process doesn’t involve removing as much metal as cross-drilling, so it doesn’t result in as great a weight saving. However, slotting can be as effective as cross-drilling in combating the problem of 'outgassing', particularly with the nine uni-directional slots fitted to each side of DBA Slotted rotors. The slots pump away gas and restore full contact.

The 'micro-shaving' effect of the slots also serves to de-glaze the pads (this is why the edges of the slots on DBA Street Series rotors are not chamfered or 'radiused'). It also tends to even out the wear across the brake pad faces, increasing the effective contact area. This can extend rotor life.
