    Replaced the rotors on both my GTO and FJ with the slotted/drilled variants of these rotors. Never had any issues with the rotors warping. The GTO saw some track time and was rarely at sane speeds on daily driving. The FJ had mucho trail time, and many water crossings and submerges...again, no warping.

    Caveat: I was also running EBC Red Stuff pads.

    FWIW

    Awesome, I have heard mixed reviews about using them with pads different from what they come with, so I'll try those out first. At $190 shipped I figured it was worth a try and all the reviews are really good.

    The rotors on my GTO had about 65k on them...and they were definitely put to the test. No issues there. A handful of brakings from the 140-150 mph range and countless from the 100-130.

    The FJ had them on for near 100k and you could barely tell they had those miles on them.

    Of course, I usually drive like I have no brakes...YMMV.

    Edit: I really enjoyed the EBC pads. They were clean, quiet and definitely a step up from OEM

    Haha that's awesome, I saw on a trailblazer forum that a guy got like 80k out of a set with no issues and could've kept using them. Insane...

    Got my parts in today, really impressed with the rotors, and the pads are actually powerstop evolution pads, which was a cool surprise. Hoping to get them on this week.

    Have had mine for 10ish thousand miles so far and no issues - have made two 1,200 mile round trips with them (on 35s) down I95 and I81 and they never once faded or decreased in performance. Im really happy with this kit so far, seems like a great deal for us!

    Just wanted to update this - about 32k miles, no issue, no change in performance from the day I installed them. No shuttering, no vibrations, and no fade when driving like a touch hole.
