Affordable Bolt-On SP PERFORMANCE®
offers a high quality line of performance brake rotors available
as Cross-Drilled, Slotted or Cross-Drilled and Slotted, designed to
improve the braking system through “bolt-on" methods. Advanced race
car technology that can be easily installed without any extensive
modifications. An inexpensive way of improving performance,
reliability, safety, and looks.
our methodic processing begins by selecting only
the finest aftermarket or OEM rotors. Each individual rotor
structure is carefully studied and analyzed and an application
specific pattern is determined utilizing the latest CAD design
techniques. The rotors are then precision machined to within strict
tolerances using CNC machines, ensuring the highest quality and
The constant heating and cooling of the brake rotor
can cause heat checking. The sharp edges on the
hole or countersink creates a stress point, increasing the
possibility of a crack formation.
SP Drilled and Slotted
Rotors are a unique design offering the best combination of cooling
and out-gassing. In fact, our design is so unique we
would like to go over some of the details. The first thing we will
point out on the drilled rotor is the chamfer. Unlike our
competition there is no edge on our chamfer. This is accomplished by
the use of an outer radius curve rather than a countersink. With the
radius curve, or "Sinusoid Curve", it virtually eliminates an edge
on the surface of the hole. With no edge, there is less stress build
up, thus reducing the chance of surface checking. This smooth
surface also makes the rotor more pad friendly by reducing the wear
of the pad caused by the friction scraping against a sharp
With SP Performance®
Slotted rotors, you will feel the difference.
Its series of
slots wipe the surface of the rotor forcing the gases to expel
through the slots. The slots also greatly improve wet weather
braking by preventing hydroplaning between the pad and rotor.
The slots on SP Performance® rotors are machined to
the minimum thickness. This is done to insure that the rotor
strength is not compromised, keeping safety and reliability in mind
for virtually all automotive cars and trucks.
This is a bolt-on,
hassle free way to greatly improve your stopping
A high stress and heat build up
area forms at the intersection of the rotor and drilled
Countersinking increases the external surface area of
the hole, thus reducing heat, but still contains edges prone to
stress and heat build up.
Chamfer increases the hole cooling area thus reducing heat, but
still contains sharp edges.
Sinusoidal Curved and Chamfered Hole
Absolutely no sharp
edges. The smooth design promotes cooling and
minimizes stress, reducing the possibility of heat checking while
increasing both rotor and pad life.

Advantages of the SP Performance®
The brake system on a car or
truck works by converting kinetic energy into heat energy. The
friction between the brake pads and rotor creates heat, but when
brakes get too hot bad things can happen. The most dangerous
thing about hot brakes is the decrease in braking power known as
heat is a normal product of the braking system. The problem is, too
much heat, for every increase of 100 degrees over the normal
operating temperature, brake wear doubles. The longer brakes
stay at high temperatures, the more wear they experience. Also, at
high braking temperatures, a gas is expelled by the brake pads,
(known as "out-gassing"), which forms a barrier between the pad and
rotor. The out-gassing effectively pushes the pad away from the
rotor reducing brake efficiency.
SP Performance® rotors provide the
best solution by considerably decreasing brake temperatures and
increasing brake pad to rotor contact by effectively reducing brake
pad out gassing.

Application(s): Street or Race
|Slotted Only |
We recommend slotted only rotors in any extreme service
application. These would include racing, autocross, larger
trucks and SUV's, and vehicles that exhibit chronic brake
The nature of the slotted only rotor gives the
greatest amount of braking surface, helps keep the pads clean,
and increases initial brake 'bite'.
Note: Due to the nature
of slotted rotors- a slight hum or whirring sound may be evident
under heavy braking.
Drilled Only |
Recommended for street applications. Because of the SP
inverted radius chamfer - and without the slotting - these rotors
will allow for greater cooling than stock rotors.
