Best Brake Rotors for s2000

Hello fellow Honda Users, I was curious at what kind of Brake Rotors
do you all Use and which last the longest duration before new ones for our s2000's. I have a 2006 S2000 which has ran me around 130,000 miles and 2 months ago,I ended up having Rotor and Brake Pad Problems ,After my Rotor and Pad Warped I went online and Purchased Cryogenic rotors, that are slotted and dont warp at all except the following Brake Pad, which has to be replaced after a duration of miles on any automobile. 2 months ago i Purchased Front and Rear Brake Kit that included the Rotors and Pad.After installing these Rotors i have drove my S2000 another 40k miles and my Rotor and Pads are smooth and non warped because of Cyrogenic Treatment.

I am Happy to say,i wont have to Purchase new rotors for a very long time and this way i stop at shorter distances and save money for people like me that put alot of miles on there honda .


If any S2000 Fans wanto Research or take interest in these Brakes check out the site

ART914F

Cyro-Treated, Gas-Ported Rear Rotors with Performance Brake Pads
$365

ART914FR

so... i can get the front rotors and pads for $365, the rear rotors and pads for $365, or the entire set of rotors and pads for $365

this doesnt make sense.

I've never seen a warped brake pad......you must have to drive extra hard to make that happen.

The OEM rotors have last well for me after many track days.

Honda put good brakes on this car from day one. I think I remember reading in a magazine that it stops from 60 shorter than an Enzo. (Not that it really matters).

Anyway, if you can live with the dust, it stops like a dream. I gave up some of that and went to ceramic pads. As my car gets older, I might just paint my wheels flat black, put good pads on again, and dust away! I miss that bite.

I have been using Stillen Rotors with Mintex Extreme pads in the front and Mintex standard in the rear. After close to 50k I am close to needing new front pads.

If I had 17" wheels I would run AP.

Hmm...finally time for new rotors, at about 86,000 miles.

Probably going with OEM from Honda. Expensive, but they're damn good. They've never warped on me, but they're just getting too thin.

If you've had good luck with Centrics or some other brand, please post.

I work for Honda but OEM is the way to go. I can't tell you how many people come in and replace aftermarket due to noise and brake dust.

Same thing only different. I have 52K on mine and the front pads are a bit thin. Going to replace those and thought I might as well do the rotors too. Will take the opportunity to bleed the brakes and replace the fluid with ATE SL 6. Works better with ABS and VSA. I am not a track junkie (yet) so the slight decrease in boilng temp is not too much of a concern.

Here is something I did a few years ago. So here is the old copy.


Over the past three years I have been entertaining myself with a fun project. Brake testing with my S2K. This is what I did. I tested three types of rotors: Stock, Crossed drilled, and Crossed drilled and slotted. Along with that I tested what I call a large selection of brake pads; EBC Red Stuff, EBC Green Stuff, and EBC Yellow Stuff, Hawk Blue 9012, Hawk HPS, Hawk Ceramic, and of course stock. I drove each pad for about 1000 miles on everyday street, auto crossing and track driving (living 3 miles from Cal.speedway helps). The testing was done with changing the fronts only. The rears were left completely stock. I first have to say this is what "I" found and what "I" think, and in no way "official results". Just my opinion and only my opinion.
Here I go.*
Best Overall- Stock rotors with EBC Red stuff. The pads wear and respond like the stock pads with less dust, and the dust is easier to clean.

Best Auto Cross- Cross drilled with Hawk blue 9012. heats up fast and works great when hot. Because of the short runs followed by long stops between runs the crossed drilled allowed the rotors to cool without hot spots. Sticky brake dust and short life makes this a pad that is not great for street driving.

Best track- Stock rotors with Hawk blue 9012 or EBC yellow. Both heat up fast and are as consistent as I have found. With brake cooling ducts these brakes were great. Both have sticky brake dust that is a pain. Both pads did wear to fast for street use.*

Worse combo-Crossed drilled and slotted with Hawk Ceramic. The crossed drilled/slotted were the problem. I could not get the pads to heat up and stay heated. The surprising thing I found was the amount of brake fad with the Ceramic pads. I did run down Tuna Canyon behind Murphy and by time I got to the bottom my brakes were gone.*

So there. Try some testing yourself if you have nothing going on in your life. Its fun. Just keep notes.

I found that for street use, the best rotor to be Power Slot slotted rotors with Hawk HPS, but must change to a race pad for the track. I can fade an HPS in just a few laps and warp a rotor in 1 session. I could care less how much dust comes off when I am on the track. If you want to be fast, you can't worry about brake dust.

Believe me, I have had my share of brake problems. I have cracked rotors, fried calipers, and warped brake pads on the track. The attached picture is a Hawk HP Plus after a full day at Laguna Seca back in 2009. I did my fastest laps metal on metal
