THERMAL SCORCHED Best non-ferrous compound (Non-Metal) for fast break-in. DUAL LAYER SHIMMore Quiet braking power. CERAMIC: QUIET, LOW DUST, CERAMIC FORMULAMade from original equipment spec's.(OEM) RUB YOUR FINGER, IS IT DUSTY?Sign of poor noise insulation. CERAMIC: FEEL THE EDGES, SEE THE COLOR?Harsh metal compound (Ferrous) means slow break-in and more dust. TAP THE SHIM... DOES IT CLICK?Single layer metal shim means more noise & uneven caliper connection. WHY BUY FROM US?
Kinetic rotors are designed for optimum rotor cooling and durability with one cooling hole per vane. This also provides superior strength to avoid cracking. This insures that the hottest part of the rotor gets cooled. The fact is that the drill holes greatly improve convection heat transfer and the result is more brake pad bite.
LEADING IN VALUE AND PERFORMANCE
We inspect our auto parts to insure best customer satisfaction. Cross-drilled rotors keep the brakes up to 150 degress cooler to prevent rotor warping. Therefore your pads last even longer and your rotors still look good. For more information contact our customer support team!
ACTUAL SILVER ZINC PLATINGElectro-Chemical Zinc Plating is the best way to protect metal from rust. WITHOUT METAL TREATMENTSome brands use a light oil / grease film coating over the rotors. SUPERIOR STOPPING POWER
Our premium Kinetic Ceramic brake pads offer superior resistance to fade without the noise and dust associated with metal brake pads. Some ceramic brake pad brands need to be very abrasive on the rotor. A high quality rotor is recommended with ceramic pads. Most new vehicles come with ceramic brake pads from the factory.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Chromium (hexavalent compounds), Lead and lead compounds, Antimony oxide (Antimony trioxide), and Nickel (Metallic), which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Chromium (hexavalent compounds) which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

UNMATCHED IN THE MARKET
Brakemotive test brakes to the limit to assure the very best in performance and safety. Kinetic rotors and Brakemotive brake pads give you extreme stopping power that is unmatched in the market. All pads are made using positive mold technology for quiet, consistent braking. The brake pads are also chamfered and slotted like the OE, and include with noise preventing dual layer shims. There are many different brands of ceramic brakes, and some manufacturers sell ceramic brakes that have metal in them. A true ceramic brake pads no ferrous metal in it. There is a wide range of brake performance with different ceramic brands. It is important to purchase brake pads that match the required OE brake factory standards.
DUAL LAYER RUBBER SHIMPrevents noisy brake squeal with up to six times more vibration insulation than today's plain steel shims. THERMAL SCORCHED FOR FAST BREAK-INThe following Ceramic brake Pads have been thermal scorched to offer superior resistance to fade without the noise & dust associated with quality metallic pads. PREMIUM CERAMIC
BRAKE PAD COMPOUNDProvides up to 20% more stopping power than other leading brands. Our Ceramic pads are 100% percent premium ceramic. OEM POSITIVE MOLD TECHNOLOGYFriction mix is deposited direct in the hot press mold so it flows evenly and maintains the same density. Posi-Mold parts enable consistent fade free performance without noise or squealing. FOLLOW STEPS FOR PROPER BREAK-IN:
The break-in procedure is critical to superior braking performance. A proper break-in is to establish an even layer of friction material deposited on the rotors from the brake pads. Break-in new brake pads/rotors using the pad bedding procedure as follows. Proper Pad bedding can prevent rotor warping.
40mph-10mph:Do not come to a complete stop preventing the brakes to cool. 35mph-5mph:In rapid succession before the brakes cool. Expect a smell of resin as brakes are hot. 40mph-10mph:With moderate brake use, allowing the heated brakes to cool and cure. LONG LASTING HIGH QUALITY ROTORS
Cross-drilled rotors can improve stopping power up to 35% over stock rotors as reported in SAE Technical Paper 2006-01-0691. "The effect of rotors cross-drilled brake performance." That is why Corvette, Porsche. Mercedes and BMW vehicles come with factory direct with drilled and slotted rotors, i.e. not dimpled or slotted. The fact is that the drill holes greatly improve convection heat transfer and the result is more brake pad bite.
High rotor temperature can cause heat spots to form in the rotor, and this causes pulsating brakes. Cross-drilled rotors keep the brakes up to 150 degrees cooler to prevent rotor warping. Therefore your pads last even longer and your rotors still look good.
OPTIMUM COOLING / DURABILITY
Kinetic rotors are designed for optimum rotor cooling and durability with one cooling hole per vane. This also provides superior strength to avoid cracking. This insures that the hottest part of the rotor gets cooled.
WARNING:This product can expose you to chemicals including Chromium (hexavalent compounds) and Nickel (Metallic), which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Chromium (hexavalent compounds) which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.p65warnings.ca.gov.
ROUNDED SLOTS ARE BETTER!Every slot is chamfered for a smooth linear transition at the edge. This reduces stress risers for improved durability and handling. SILVER ZINC PLATINGElectro-chemical plating is the best way to protect metal from rust. Some brands use painted rotors that peel or discolor when the rotors get hot. Zinc Plating Does Not Apply To Hub and Rotor Assemblies! (please see item specifics above for details on surface finish.) DRILL HOLES PREVENT ROTOR WARPINGDrill holes allow air to flow over and through the vanes to improve convection heat transfer and keep the rotors up to 150 degrees cooler. ABUNDANT COOLING VANESOur premium rotors are designed with several cooling vanes that keep the rotor from long term negative effects such as warping. PREVENT ROTOR & CALIPER DAMAGE

Are any modifications necessary to make these rotors fit my vehicle?
No modifications or alterations are needed in order to install our brakes. All parts are designed to be direct original equipment replacement parts with simple bolt-on installation.
Metallic Vs Ceramic Brake Pads?
Ceramic pads are quieter, however, metallic pads are more appropriate from constant tough braking like trucking, hauling, intense highway driving or racing.
Will I get Tracking Information?
Yes, tracking information is automatically sent to your email address when the items have been shipped. After payment has cleared, handling time is one (1) business day. So, you will typically receive the e-mail from FedEx within 24 hours of the order being shipped.
Are the drilled holes and slots directional?
Yes, the rotors are machined based on their orientation on the vehicle. Driver's side (left) and passenger's side(right) have unique patterns so the slot trails toward the back of the vehicle.
What causes rotor warping?
Rotor warping is cause from lack of maintenance to a vehicle rotors brakes calipers, and other braking components.
Do I have solid rotors or vented rotors?
Solid rotors usually contain a single thin solid metal braking surface. Vented rotors have vents/vanes between two solid rotor surfaces.
