View Full Version : Rotor Life?

Hey all you track dawgs.

How long are your rotors lasting on your Cobras/Mustangs when you
run track events. Just looking for a rough estimate. I realize different
rotors, pads, tracks, drivers, etc. will get different rotor life.

I've run four days worth of events and been through two sets of front
pads and one set of rears. My rotors have very minor grooves but
overall look good. I have not put the micrometers on them yet to
measure thickness, but they show very little wear.

Let me know, thanks.

About one season Jeff depending on how hard you are on the brakes. :)

I watch the heat stress cracks in the rotor, when they start to look like they are getting organized, meaning they are connecting together from crack to crack, I toss them. Usually it is after 2 to 3 sets of race pads, 5-6 weekends.

3 track days for a set of Hawk Blue pads and about 10 track days for the front rotors (Brembo slotted).
