    ok, today I felt little crazy and basically I was goin' like 100-120 on the city roads,

    so I had to brake allot, so after about 20 minuter of driving like that, I parked next to my house and litterally I had smoke coming out of my brake pads, and this shit smels bad,

    any wayz I thought my car will burn, by the way I have a 01 GSR, so what do you guyz think I should do, cuz that's like my second or third time,

    If I will change the rotors for the bigger once, and better bads,

    what kind you think I should get,

    1- dont do 100-120 on city roads
    2- dont stop the car when your brakes are that hot (drive around a little while using as little brake as possibe till they cool) or you are just asking to warp the fuck out of them
    3- better brakes will help you more than bigger ones will

    if ur around snow some could of fell on your rotors to make then steem becuase they were extremely hott , but look into slotted and drilled rotors to let them kool faster , and go with a really realible pad

    drilled and sloted rotors are pretty much just for show the newer compounds used to make brake pads let off very little gas so there is really no need to drill/slot rotors to vent the gasses. Also the more mass you have with the rotor the more area you have to disipate heat. P.S. slow the fook down!!!!

    Right off of Willwood brake's site.



    We have had like 4 blanks vs slotted vs Drill posts in the past month. The topic is pointless. Use the search button, and dont post stuff if you don't know what your talking about. It is like the blind leading the blind.
