Manufactured using premium disc blanks mentioned above, the narrower multi slot design of the Ultimax sport rotor and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined creates a quiet running sport rotor that still has benefits of removing gas, dirt, water and debris and MAINTAINING parallel pad wear.
EBC have always been honest enough to say that the biggest advantage of slotted rotors is the fact that they promote flat and parallel pad wear rather than allowing ridges to develop on pads and rotors which is typical of "drilled only" sport rotors. By preventing these ridges brakes stay more consistent throughout pad and rotor wear life (simple physics!).
|DRIVING STYLE||BEST PADS||BEST ROTORS|
|Normal urban driving, school-run or
commuter on car, truck or SUV.
|Spirited street use on sport compact or
import sedan (Hot Hatch).
|Faster street use on muscle cars (slight rotor
wind noise acceptable).
|Low dust street use on prestige imports
(silent braking required).
|Fastest street and track use, trackday, time trials and drifting in any size or weight of car (on or off road).For longer races Bluestuff may be required for durability purposes.||Yellowstuff||UPR Series
(or GD if race series allows)
|High durability race pad also suitable for
(EBC Box end label will say AF66/16SC)
|Truck, 4x4 and SUV
modest brake upgrade.
|Greenstuff 6000 Series||GD Series|
|Truck, 4x4 and SUV maximum stopping for
towing and loads etc.
|Truck, 4x4 and SUV modest brake upgrade
with lowest dust.
