Ive priced the rotors and the slotting process...at this time, TOTAL cost (pending finalization of the slotting process costs) for a PAIR of rotors for our EA82 Leones....look to be $80. Plus shipping ofcourse.

How many people would be interested in such a thing? Right now there is no "group buy" issues or any kind of "we have to have this many to do so" type deal...it could be done on a 'one at a time' basis....

we also need to figure out what kind of slotting pattern we would want to set as a standard for these rotors...keep in mind, the more complex...the cost might go up....


Oh, and on the brake pads...

Looks like EBC green stuff pads would be about $80 a front set as well...and the Carbotech Bobcat and panther XP compunds (500000x better braking grip than EBC/stock) run about $110 per axle set.

DOnt forget Ive got Brainded stainless brake lines for the front, $55 shipped.

edit: those of you with XT6 5 lug conversions or what not, an EA81 stuff, I can get rotors and slotting done to them as well....i have not done up any costs for those yet.

I will be interested in a set for my Rotary RX and maybe my hatch. that 110 for an axle set is that 2 pads or 4 cause we have 4 axles total. but I think if it was for 2 then you would have said per wheel.....................why am I still typing....
................anyways like I said eariler I'd be interested.

you wont need to make rotors for the front of the xt6. there are plenty aftermarket ones available cause a certain GM car shares the front rotors.

JWX: axle set is "front pad or rear pad set" so...4 pads.

s_s: true....something about a "cavalier" pos or something...lol

Rotors? I would imagine around/close to the same price. Pads too.

and you are welcome for the cooler.
