Ive never actually asked for it I was under the assumption that allot of places asked for a trade card or something? Guess I should look into it

 

Ive had apprentice discount on tools and my old work used to let me put stuff on there account ans pay them but don't know how actual trade discount works

Think I've bought from that seller for my S14 also . Only standard rotors , but was cheap as hell .

 

I'd still try trade first . I don't have that luxury so I went with him . Was a couple of years ago now

 

But was the cheapest I could find online at the time .

Beware of RDA rotors and the lower range DBA rotors. If you do push it hard in the hills or on any track day, they will most likely warp or crack. This is due to their one-piece design.

 

Rotors that are 2-piece will tend to take abuse much better but it depends on how you use it.

they also cost a shitload, and unless you are doing serious track work you don't need them. i've had RDA slotted glowing red from a hills run with no cracks.

I'm not knocking the fact they do work, but at the same time don't expect a crack or warp free rotor after every hard run. If it doesn't crack or warp after each run then that's great.

 

Avoid drilled or dimpled rotors too, much more likely to crack. Slotted would be better but they still have a higher chance of cracking than plain. But slotted helps with ventilation, deturring water and cleaning the pads.
