    Hi,

    Anyone have a recommended source for new rotors? I need to do the brakes on my 355 and thought about getting some cross-drilled this time 'round...

    Thanks!!

    Emil,
    I can't get cross-drilled rotors, but know of a good source for oem Brembo's if you are interested. I got new rotors for my 348 CH for ~$175 each.

    PM me and I'll provide you the information.

    That price sounds way higher than normal, simply because of their intended application..

    You can find 325mm non-cross drilled Brembo rotors for $78 with free shipping online from www.thepartsbin.com

    Has anyone tried to call them by giving them a Brembo part number or finding out if theres another Brembo rotor that might fit the application?

    It just amazes me what part outfits get away with sometimes.

    Baer might make kits that fit stock calipers for your car. My friend got a pair of two piece ones from baer that'll never warp (if they do he gets free ones) and they look sharp. Oh yeah, the car stops better too...

    Emil, check out this thread:http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?p=21682#post21682

    No affiliation; I've been happy with stuff from him before.

    Also, FWIW, cross-drilled should be avoided. It weakens the rotor, reduces mass of the rotor, and does not help cooling. Seriously; check out the attached article.

    vty,

    I have to agree with Dennis about drilled rotors cracking. If the holes are cast in it is not as much of a problem. If you are not going to track the car it may be O.K. If you want long rotor life, have them cryo treated. It is well worth the money.

    Ive used Porterfield for years with no complaints. twice the performance of ferrari at 1/3 the cost. & they can make them cross drilled, regular, slotted, cryo, whatever you want
