There is a highway between Tlaxcala and Puebla, Mexico. For many miles there is a speed bump every so many hundred yards. A few years ago, before the richest man in the world built Arco Norte, the Mexico city bypass, I had to drive through there. That is so frustrating.
That was the first time since I first got disk brakes that I had brake fade. Slam on the brakes, go over the speed bump. floor it until the next one. Over and over.
Then, once there was like no brakes on the next speed bump. Just like I used to have on my old drum front brakes.
So, when I needed to replace the rotors, my SIL found me some racing rotors on the Internet. I forget what you call them, they got holes all over them, maybe slotted and drilled, not sure.
Man, I got brakes! Brakes in the mountains! Brakes in the city! Brakes on the speed bumps. It just stops! I highly recommend them. And, they didn’t cost any more than Toyota OEM rotors.
Rotors is not a place to cut corners.
And, I think I have ceramic pads, if that makes sense.
