    Default Front Brake Rotor Availability

    I've been trying to get a hold of South West Lotus Centre in the UK for some front brake rotor rings, since their prices were the best I've seen (WAS roughly $200/disc + shipping, for the fronts).

    But, looks like AP racing no longer makes the rings:
    The original drilled AP Racing discs are no longer available for the Noble Car and the Grooved Front Discs are also being discontinued. Noble are looking into producing a floating disc system which will replace all the previous brake discs supplied. As the intial disc will have a black bell fitted the cost is likely to be in the region of 422.50+VAT per disc. Future replacement discs will be in the region of 270.40+VAT as they will not require the bell. This will be a far superior braking system and more suited to the modern day car.

    I know Willy sells brake kits.
    Turbohoses lists the front rings for $375/ea.
    Looks like Raiden sells both front rings and hardware for $685.

    Anyone else who sells these?

    I know this isn't I know this isn't exactly what you're asking, but I've worked with south west lotus for other items. They're thorough.

    Willy,
    Are they attach to the noble hats? And are they slotted, drilled, both, neither?

    What are the specs on the rings you're selling? How many vanes are in these rotors?

    Thanks Willy.

    I am concerned about the reliability of these rotors compared to the 48 vane AP rotors. Less vanes mean that the rotor will run hotter.

    the AP rotors are straight vane meaning the do not move air very well.

    AP makes curved and straight vane rotors. Having more vanes increases airspeed and heat transfer through the disc.

    What material are your rotors made of?

    Can you share the testing you did on your rotors?
