Unless you're drowning them in liquid nitrogen after each session, I'm gonna say that's not healthy. TSE 11.75" kit?

Those cracks! Before this, did you get vibrations when you stepped on the brakes?

That's absolutely terrifying. Glad no accident happened as a result.

I bet thermal shock from being red hot and going through a puddle could easily do that.

It's a standard 8x7" bolt pattern. I run the TSE kit on my personal car. We switched out the Wilwood rotors for a set of PFC rotors. The quality of the iron is substantially higher. the part number you need for the PFC is 299.20.0050.01/02 (01-drivers) (02- pass). We can get them for you. If you want to stick with the wilwood rotors you need a part# 160-12283

Rotors that came with the TSE 11.75” kit are Wilwood Ultralite 32 Vane Rotor part.no. 160-0471. Maybe the cheapest ones you can get.

Local motorsport shop sells Ultralite HP rotors part.no.160-5841. To get the car running quickly again I probably gonna change that broken one with that

I think you are right! Just look at my front tires from that last brake disc picture. There’s hardly any surface left and it felt like that in track. ABS was kicking whole time

Thanks OGRacing! Now I can sleep again
