    However today some not so good news... I've been worried about my brakes for a while as there was little cracks around where the bell bolts to the rotor they have slowly been getting worse so thought I'd have a look.. much to my surprise its was only in the surface and nothing to worry about however what was to worry about was the hole that's appeared in there..

    Small crack nothing to worry about.. checked both sides.. 20190606_112842.jpg 20190606_112853.jpg

    However this is..

    Good thing you decided to check the inside face of the disc. Could have ended badly that. Definitely time for some new ones there.

    Do you have a pic from the vent channels? It seems like there was some material missing from the casting process, right?

    Well I was not expecting that.. they have said there must have been an issue with the manufacturing process and they are sending me a disk out and are giving me the other side at cost with free bolts so bit of a saving there and got some new pads on order aswell..

    Just read through your thread - nice to see someone checking their track cars properly between sessions!

    That crack's propagated from the bolts - a steel disc should be floating on an ally bell with bobbins (not a hard bolted interface) to prevent this.
