Default Testimonial from Corvette Z06

See our complete brake upgrade option for Corvette Z06.
This thread receives 15,465 views and was honorably collected in Corvette Forum Library.

It's probably the most comprehensive and lasting review (from 06 until now) on any two piece stock replacement rotors in Corvette Forums.

How durable are RB two piece rotors? Four years later, listen to what Rudy has to say.

Default Testimonial from RX7

What is RB's Open Slots Rotors? Do they really work or just another marketing gimmick?

RX7 FD3 is a two years' production car in the US, yet according to our knowledge, more % of RX7 owners go to race tracks than any other car makes.

We were called upon by Howard Coleman in 2006 (a 5 year old thread but still active -113,599 views), to take the challenge of developing a true balanced brake system for RX7 (front and rear) that has been missing for more than 10 years.

In 6 months we shipped the kits in July 2007, so you may want to learn from Andrew how RB brake kits performed and how effective those open slot rotors are.
Scroll down the pages for the whole story.

Andy's review was in 2009, but two years later we still don't have a chance to sell him the replacement rings.

Default Testimonial from BMW forum

Learn from Craig why he chose RB for his BMW 335i, and how he inspected and checked our facility where these two piece rotors are developed and built.

RB brakes were intensively tested at Laguna Seca and Craig has recorded all temperature data for your review:

The same rotor rings (345x30) will be used for R32 (2008+) two piece.

Today we have all three sizes of two piece rotors assembled and inspected - ready for fitment tests.

Photos are posted on individual thread, and "Great White" from New Port Beach is kind enough to offer his cars (both MK4 and MK5/R32) for testing.

More to follow.

Default Disc Surface Finish - Open Slots

We received inquiries for other type of finish than Open Slots. This post is to explain the reason behind our consolidation of disc finish to "Open Slots" over years of testimonial and feedback from our customers from streets and tracks.

Here is what Jim's (Z06 racer) comment on the reason why he prefers 'open slots':

"Yes, I track my car on the open track or lapping days at Miller Motorsports Park in the Salt Lake City area, and have shown quite a few people the open slot design. I like the concept of the brake dust having someplace to go in the open slot, and hopefully some additional cooling air circulation…"

If you look up our recent pre-order group buy activities you shall get an idea why "Open Slots" has been unanimously chosen by those enthusiasts.

CamaroSS Front

CamaroSS Rear

CTS-V Rear

Infiniti G37S Front

Infiniti G37 Rear


Out of these newly released two piece rotors only a few CTS-V rear were made to "Surface Slots" finish for those customers already owned "slotted" RB front.

RB was the first brake company introduced two piece rotors for EVO 8 and STi back in 2004, and subsequently released several technological advanced designs built into our two piece rotors.

This is "Frankencar" just commented on RB two rotors under 2004 R32 thread

"RB rotors are very hi quality and are loaded with the latest innovations in Iron rotor technology. I will need to post pics of my 300x25's soon."

It seems most our customers have agreed "Open Slots" is a proven brake technology that can end the confusion and debate of what type of disc finish to choose.

Just like anything an innovative product w/o the supports from consumers can never be good and with your supports we can further reduce our cost in production and inventory and in turn the consumers are benefited.

Thank you for reading.
