    R1Concepts "Premium" - Double Cross-Drilled & Slotted Brake Rotors

    R1Concepts Premium Series Cross Drilled and Slotted Rotors offer outstanding stopping power and performance as well as dependable longevity.

    Product Description :

    1. Cross-Drilled and Slotted Design
    2. Drilled holes provide maximum air circulation for increased cooling
    3. Holes are countersunk which reduces heat build up
    4. Exclusive R1 Concepts Diamond Slot increase brake pads bite
    5. Diamond Tip use as indicator for brake rotor wear
    6. Black E-Coating Gives Long Lasting Corrosion Protection
    7. High strength cast iron discs
    8. Direct Fit OEM Replacement Brake Rotor
    9. Double disc ground finish reduces rotor vibration
    10. Meet Or Exceed OEM Standards For Excellence

    12. Superior Machined Surfaces That Provide Smoother And Quieter Stops And Longer Brake Pad Life

    Note: R1Concepts Premium brake rotors are machined using a G3500 grade Carbon Metallic compound which is much stronger than other offered rotors on the market today since the vast majority of them are cast from G3000 grade cast iron. Stronger, longer lasting and offering better cooling properties than cast iron, the Premier series rotors are by far the better choice for all Raptor Owners.

    Looking for an honest comparison between these and the EBC's.

    Anyone?

    The only real comparison I can give honestly is the fact that EBC doesn't cross drill their rotors and do not recommend those that are. They cross "dimple" their rotors for what is suppose to be the same reason, but is suppose to cause less stress on the core metal and avoid messing up the venting support cross vanes between the two sides of the rotors due to cracking.

    That being said. All I can truly honestly offer is my personal experience with these rotors. I ran them on my 03 Duramax hauling Christmas trees and other farm stuff. But the Christmas tree season is usually a 10-15 day season hauling loads most people wouldn't put behind a 1 ton dually and my truck is a 3/4 ton 2500HD (ZF-6). Each year I would try different combinations of rotors and pads in January and by the end of the Christmas tree season I would be metal to metal warping and grooving the rotors. These R1Concepts rotors are the only rotors (with posi quiet ceramic pads) that survived one year, mush less two and they are still on the truck. No cracking, warping or anything.

    This picture has been everywhere but it is just one example of how large the Christmas tree loads would be...
