Got a link for me? Who's the vendor or source? PM if you want.
Found them at MyNismo (MyNismo.com - STOP TECH Direct Replacement Rotors), seemed like a sick deal until I put them in my car. $90 for shipping! You've got to be kidding me. It's cheaper for me to fly to their factory and stuff the damn things in my rollerboard and fly home.

Screw that noise. I think I'm gonna go with the set of PowerSlots I found, since apparantly they're in bed with StopTech.

Link here: Power Slot Cryo Tempered Brake Rotor - Left (Single Rotor): buybrakes.com (16 lbs) and here: Power Slot Cryo Tempered Brake Rotor - Left (Single Rotor): buybrakes.com (11 lbs)

Dave, do you know the weight of the stock rotors? I'd weigh them but I literally don't have a scale in my house, no joke. lol

Powerslots, that's the one. I think the OEM rotors are at least 15 lbs. I'm curious, too.

Saw a set of PowerSlots slotted rotors on my friend's race Tc today, the slots rusted out and look like death. Screw it.. I'm gonna just go with OEM hardware, I get that stuff for cost anyways.

I ordered a complete kit from Concept Z - $650 for 4 rotors, Hawk HPS pads, stainless steel lines, and a quart of hi-temp fluid. They are Centric blanks which is what StopTech uses. Slotted, and it's only been 5 months but they still look great. I'm thinking though that for rotors only, they are not much less expensive than OEM rotors. I get 15% off OEM at my local dealers, actually off anything they sell, but they didn't carry any slotted and I like that look.

I like my 350 but I love my 300ZX TT more.

Good info. I always thought that cross-drilled AND slotted was the way to go for high performance. Glad i found this!

That's what we're here for (I think).

Well, I'm here for the fun.
