New Rotors, Pads, and Spacers

Since my last 2 track days were hampered by brake juddering, and Sabertooth talked me off the ledge of Big Brake Kit purchase, I doubled down on EBC and got new rotors.

I went with EBC GD7290 GD series Sport Rotors, as they promise significanly more venting and air flow than my current USR slotted rotors. Anyone here running these?

EBC sent me a free set of Redstuff pads when I wrote to them last year complaining about squeal, so I'll use those since I've got them.

My current rotors show scorching, guessing from using a ceramic pad (Redstuff) at the track. But hoping the GD series will run cooler and everything will be ok as-is.

I also picked up some H&R wheel spacers since my winter wheels (stock 18's) lack offset and rub my new coilovers. Will just use spacers on fronts for winter driving only. Never used spacers before, sounds like I'm gambling with my life from some reviews but these seem high quality.

I'll report back on how its all working once installed.

The holes and vanes on the rotor that you see are more about venting pad gasses than cooling.

Run some actual cooling ducts from an area of high pressure like the nose of the car to the brakes for best results in venting.

Your pads are still low temperature pads if they're the ceramic ones. Semi or full metallic work at a higher temperature range than ceramic. Ceramic gives lots of friction when cool. Metallic when warm/hot

Yes, the slots and dimples will only help with heat to a point, but these claim 'wider aperture' vents for increased cooling, but we shall see how true that is.

For pads, I'm considering just going OEM rather putting the ceramic Reds back on since I already know they don't take heat from the track well. I've tried Yellowstuff and Hawk HP in the past but I think OEM is much better for daily driving. Never had OEM pads front pads on the track tho, but likely better than ceramic.

They may be talking about the cooling fins inside the rotor between the 2 faces. THOSE are for cooling.

I've got no idea what the OEM pads were, but I'd have to imagine they were ceramic or organic. Just find yourself some semi metallic pads. I use them on my daily without squealing
