    Arrow Rotors Again

    My 2002 SS has 115K on it and the rotors are warped again. I am looking at two kits for all four corners on Amazon that I would have professionally installed.

    http://amzn.to/29xKntO -- Callahan, Drilled & Slotted with Pads $245

    http://amzn.to/2aaxtCz -- Approved Performance, Drilled & Slotted with Pads $212

    I want something as good as or better than stock and was thinking drilled and slotted to cut down on the warping. My driving style is "go as fast as possible, stand on the brakes at the last second, then go like hell again". In searching older posts I found one from 2014 recommending R1Concepts, but the drilled and slotted sets are around double the kits above. I am leaning towards the Callahan set unless there is a reason to avoid them. I can afford to pay more, just don't want to if I don't have to

    THANKS EVERYONE!

    With that mileage, you might also want to consider changing out your original rubber brake hoses.

    Slotted R1 rotors here with Hawk HPS pads and braided lines. Huge improvement in stopping power!

    Looks like Callahan is just another brand name for cheap rotors, so I am sifting through the R1 options.
