Looks like a sport bike rotor, for the same reason.

Right, I am guessing due to being an auto-X car there is not as much time on course that would overheat the brakes. In fact, Grassroots just published a test article on how for auto-x, the pad compound choice for example is really not that important. High temp pads do not do much better, if at all, than low temp pads.

Anyway, thread jack over, on my part anyway.

Some we had to refuse more than once, 2) We got a set that were clearly damaged during manufacture (large gashes in rim, no damage on boxes) but they just shipped them out anyway. They did eventually make good on all of the above, for what it's worth.

For what they charge for them, they should be better.
Twincharged Exige with Hoosiers on Kodiaks. Hoosier gets off the wheel 'cause turns out the Kodiak wheels diameter were out of spec:

His driving could be improved but what didn't you like about holding the steering wheel? The fact that he shuffles?! I din't see hand over hand problems.
