[DML] Re: Cross Drilled Rotors?



My car still has original brakes/lines etc. and still is very good 
while breaking - no soft feelings, short stop track. Actually like a 
modern car (even my Pontiac TransSport 96 has not such a good 
breaking system, takes longer to stop and needs more pedal pressure).
One of the former employees - Neil Barclay - of DMC Dunmurry factory 
rode with me and confessed afterwards that IHO my brakes worked 
better than he expected from what he heard and experienced.

Nevertheless I consider using ventilated front rotors (needs 
a "spacer" for the calipers). Cross drilling adds to cooler rotors 
and helps preventing warping. Ideally rotors sould be cross drilled 
and ventilated.

Over here (Netherlands) there are several D's having either one or 
the other. Ed Uding of DMC Europe has knowledge on how to do it.
