Turner Uprated - Wavey Brake Rotors

Anyone tried these yet? wondering if there worth the $1200 price tag ??

Subbing. I also looked at these recently. Curious if there's any feedback.

I saw those yesterday too! I got an email from them.

They look very very promising. I will get them when my front rotors wear out. I like how ECS giving you brake pad options right up front when ordering these new rotors. I am running the Cool Carbon pads on my OEM rotors right now and they are superb, but they are still terrible for the track. I am wondering if I will get Pagid Race Pads for my next set, but I do wonder about the dust and squeal. The Cool Carbons have been amazing for a significant reduction in dust and absolutely no squeal.

Planning to do the same when my front rotor runs out. I guess they can't be worse than oem. We will also benefit from the two piece design being lighter than oem. I got sourced to a pair of Dixcel Brake pad. It's their Z range, which suppose to offer light tracking ability, great initial bite and less brake dust. I was told its comparable to endless, gonna give them a try

what are the benefits to these rotors exactly?

Lightweight, precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum hat hard anodized with an attractive matte black finish that is both durable and corrosion resistant.

The unique wave pattern further reduces weight at the outermost portion of the rotor, reducing both unsprung weight and more importantly the rotational inertia of the rotor, further improving acceleration and braking performance compared to a non-wave design.

Gray cast iron rings: High quality FC-30 cast iron with high a carbon content improves wear properties at elevated temperatures and has excellent thermal conductivity and vibration damping properties. Friction surfaces are precision ground to ensure perfectly parallel surfaces and improved pad bed in, and rotors are precision balanced for vibration free operation. Heat treating reduces the tendency for rotor cracking by reducing internal rotor stresses.

Full floating rotor benefits:

The lateral float capability allows the rotor to self-center between the pads, improving pad wear and reducing drag. It also reduces the effects of pad knock back, which is the tendency of the rotor to push the pistons back into the calipers due to wheel bearing deflection under extreme loading, resulting in a soft pedal and inconsistent braking. Reducing or eliminating knock back by allowing the rotor to float and self-center results in a more consistent pedal feel and braking

The full float design allows independent radial and lateral thermal expansion and movement. Both of these features reduce thermal stresses on the rotor due to uneven thermal loading under hard braking.

The radial expansion allows the ring to increase in diameter without being restrained by the hat, reducing the tendency to “cone” or distort toward the outer braking surface, improving pedal feel and pad wear characteristics

The full float design conducts less heat into the bearings due to reduced contact area between the rotor and the hat.

they sound amazing, wonder who will be the first to trial? stock setup does not like the track, so must do something

Waste of money if you ask me. Supposed to save around 4-5lbs rotational weight per rotor. I had them on my RS5 and that car chewed through them every 20k miles. I realized apples and oranges
