disc's for my carrera 4


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm thinking about changing my disc's and brakes pads on my car. I went to Pelicanparts and I see disc's starting from $128 to $202. What's the

difference and is it worth it. Also, can I buy the more expensive ones to the front and cheaper ones to the back?

I go through rotors on my track car pretty fast, and have had the opportunity to use Porsche branded, Zimmerman (Porsche OEM) and some no names too. Frankly, I have not found a difference in how long they last on my track car....I have seen some differences in the hole patterns on the rears, and I have had different experiences in how effective/ineffective the corrosion resistance is on the hats, but that has been the extent of the differences, except for price.

The hats on Porsche branded rotors will not rust. Zimmerman rotors that say the hats are treated to prevent rust, will not rust either. It has been hit or miss for me from there - some cheapos I've gotten that promised no hat rusting, did rust.

For me, I buy the cheapest I can find that have directed vanes because I only use them a few months and then replace. I think for most, though, you want Porsche or Zimmerman that will not rust. Z is often cheaper.
