    The first set it Rotorworks and the second set is EBC Rotors. I have EBC's and have not problems with them. No warp, no nothing. Rotoworks ????? Maybe they will warp easily like the factory rotors ???

    Mine are just slotted. The anodizing is the same as new ... we'll maybe a little faded and dirty but, along with EBC Pads ... They stop great with no fade after a good long romp in the mountains. ;-)

    I have powerlots on the front of mine. I actually wore out my first set after about 33000 kilometers...using the Hawk performance pads. One set of pads/one set of rotors. The slots were worn too thin to not replace them. I was so happy with the performance of them, I bought the same when I just replaced them.

    I have never felt fade with this combination. When the factory rears need replacing, I'll put the same there. If I manage to afford a real big brake kit like Wellwood or Baer, that's the only time I will choose otherwise.

    the LS1 Rotors IMO are the best rotors for the price, and along with Hawk pads is a great combo. i had power slots and didnt like them and found that the stock LS1 rotors are the best you can get.

    My stock rotors warped twice in under 15k. I gave up on them then. Bought the Hawks/Powerslots and have been quite happy. Zero noise, minimal brake dust, and fantastic stopping power...grips harder as they get hotter as well. Very agressive feel...what I like anyway.

    Same here .... Stock Rotors are aweful imo. You see lots of threads where the stock ones are replaced with cheaper Autozone rotors for guarding against the warpping issue.
