Subject: Powerslot Rotors

Message:
I purchased a set of Powerslot Rotors back in August of 2001 and have noticed MAJOR stress cracks in the rotors. My pads are not worn out and I don't really do any funky braking. Has anyone experience this? I feel the rotors were a bad cast or not tempered properly. Please provide some feedback please....

man marc, I just had my stock rotors turned for the first time and the damn thing (00' R/T) still squeels like a pig even on it's fresh pads. I was thinking about going with powerslots but I've heard the same thing that's happened to you alot. Go check out the group buy going on right now for powerslots, for every person jumping on the buy there's another previous powerslot owner saying they are crap and crack and they wont replace them. I feel for you man, I don't know what to do. Even with the group buy 160 bones isn't cheap, what other alternatives are there?

I'm not sure what to do Eric, going w/ the viper brakes I assume would be way out of my budget. I'm tempted to take it to a brake expert and have it looked at. I've been dealing with the local dodge dealership, they already tried to screw me over on something else. This really bites b/c I was planning on getting the mopar pcm and now I have to deal with my brakes, how fundamental is that .. it's a 00' too so this just bites.

Stanless Steel Breaks sells front rotors for our trucks. The set cost more but it comes with pads.

yeah I was thinking if it fails all the basics I'm going to go with the stillen sport rotors and ceramic pads. I think they may just be glazed, after the rotors were turned and new pads were put on (72 hours ago) I didn't break them in or treat them any different so I may have screwed them up so I'm going to tear it down, rotate the tires, torque the lugs down properly and start from there. The stillen rotors are about 250 but they are true cross drilled and I've heard alot of good things about them on the durango forum so who knows.

Marc-- what kind of pads did you use on the powerslots??? I got nearly 30k out of my first set of powerslots (ran 1 pad down too far, and ruined the rotor-- my own fault). I am on my second set of power slots-- and have about 8k miles on them-- no problems (and numerous 110 mph 1/4 mi passes on them).

I run the raybestos BS pads (Brute shtop)... The rotors chew the pads (tons of dust), but the rotors haven't warped or cracked (38k miles combined on both sets so far). I auto-x the truck as well, so they do get a work out.

I checked around, and I think the people that have had problems with cracking... were using ceramic pads-- which apparently hold in the heat, putting it back against the rotors.
