Pricing on Premium Rotors will never be this low again. Pick a set up while you can.
I would like an answer, so that we can get Crooked some rotorsHavoc/Jules could you explain if there is or what is the difference between the R1 rotors and ARKs rotors? Besides the BIG price difference
Based on the written description they sound to be the same.
I'm interested but I just want to know. Thank You!
X2! Gracias!I would like an answer, so that we can get Crooked some rotors
Thank you R1! :bowdown: Sorry guys, havent checked this thread since this morning. Most aftermarket Rotors come out to within 1 lb. of the OEM.Hello everyone! Its hard to give differences when I have not used any of the other manufactures products to compare them with. One product that I have seen is the Stoptech rotors and our quality is on par theirs.
R1 Concepts do all of the machine work in our shop with our own high tech CNC machines. Now this may not sound so important but thats what make our rotors different. First off quality control is better managed. We take meticulous care not to drill through vane structures. Most companies out there do not even care for that. I have seen poor machine work where someone had drilled through 32 out of 38 vanes on a rotor. When you do that, it weakens the structural integrity of the rotors and it is not something I will put on my car. Some rotors I have seen, looked like they were drilled using a drill press. The patterns look odd and out of place and were are spaced differently across the rotors.
We use a slot design called Diamond Slots. Diamond Slots are pointy in the end versus the round edges. There are a few benifits doing the slots that way. First they help remove some of the brake derbies out of the slots. Since it creates an opening for the dust to escape. Also they work as wear indicators. When we slot slot the rotors we slot them to minimum thickness levels. So when that diamond shape fades, you know they are nearly at the minimum thickness levels.
Next, our prices! Since we do not need to out source our products they are delivered to our customers at low prices.
Weight of our rotors comes out the same as stock. They are a few grams lower but nothing noticeable.
Sorry for jumping in Havok, but just wanted to answer some questions
The reviews you found seems to be mainly imports. I do understand those reviews pop up when you google it, but we are more focused these days in the domestic cars such as the SRT8, 300c, Cameros etc. We do have great up to date reviews in the Tiburon forums too. We are pretty well established in many forums so should not be hard finding us :hello:Thanks for the info R1!
I've been doing some background checking online as well, and reviews from Audi, Acura, Nissan, evo, etc all seemed mostly positive, but I did notice two interesting facts:
All reviews I found were over two years ago.
Even on higher end vehicles, their rotors were much cheaper than the offer being made here.
Not sure if important.
R1 logo, or any type of custom logo we make are mainly for that custom look. But they do act like slots when it comes to performance.Two more questions...
Is the R1 logo on the rotor only for looks or is it realistic to do it?
How much should it cost to replace the rotors? I just asked a shop and they quoted me $300. That sounds crazy to me. I think I remember doing it for less than half a long time ago.
Go find a small, local gas station, a lot of those guys are STARVING for work, and its really hard to screw up a job like putting on Rotors... You can bargain with them, but expect to pay around $150.Yeah 300... I hate when shops try to abuse the customer. How much do you guys think is a reasonable price for install? No I cannot do it myself.
