    The holes on drilled disks are supposed to help dissipate heat, with grooves there to help de-glaze pads during very hard use and allow any gasses that may be created to escape. All helping to increase brake performance.

    For most people the main deciding factor on spending more money on them is looks.

    Geez, you sure? here in Hungary, so many people are big fun of them, there is a disc attached below called EBC GD Turbo Groove, ehhh I hate everything which has such a name and colour, if you check, cost nearly 220 GBP:

    as far as I know its produced in Northhapmton/UK, but honestly do you use them?


    appreciate your honest answer!

    Prone to cracking around the holes, better off with just grooves/slots.

    Hi all!
    I'm looking for a "budget" brakes setup for a track. I'm going for Ferodo DS2500 pads all around. Braided lines and TRW fluid. But I can't make my mind regarding front disks. I want to replace OEM with something more suitable for a track, unfortunately I'm unable to spend 500+ for a 330mm disks.
    What can I get for around 200-250 that would outperform OEM disks on the track? All inputs are highly appreciated.

    Thx for a prompt response!
    Which is better for track use from the Tarox range? F2000 vs GR8 vs Sport Japan?

    I'd say the Sport Japan as they are the only ones that customers want, the GR8's have far too many grooves really.

    I was leaning towards F2000 as description says that it's specifically designed for the track.
    I'd really appreciate a comment from someone who actually used them on a track.

    EBC redstuff...if you want cheap and DS2500 for best-buy.

    I'm settled with DS2500, thanks. It's the front brake disks I'm still choosing.

    HEL braided lines
    Motul RBF 660 fluid
    Mintex m1155 pads

    So general consensus seems to be Brembo HC Discs + DS2500 for fast road use? Mine need doing and I don't want to spend £500+ on big brakes XD
