it's not heat that warps your rotors bud, it's rust and bad torque
procedure. put a little antiseize on the rotor cap after you've scraped
off the rust, both inside and outside. use a scraper blade, not emery
paper. torque in 2 or more stages, 1324, 1324.
not really. go to the circuit. there's the old farts [you know, the
ones with experience] winning races on standard undrilled straight vane
disks. in theory, curved vanes are better, but half the time, i see
monkeys with them installed the wrong way around, so i really doubt
you'll see any difference.
Right now our Accord has Brembo replacements up front which are about
30k miles used and still doing great. I recently replaced the rear
rotors with Raybestos brand PG Plus, their premium standard design
rotor. So far these are working brilliantly as well. I'm using
Raybestos Quiet Stop ceramic formula pads all around and the car stops
butter smooth and whisper quiet. Ah, lovely. These pads also don't
make as much black dust as the original Honda ones did.
I don't know about abusive driving and cross drilled rotors. I don't do
the first and have never tried the second.
