Default Anyone use Brakemotive?

They look like they have some good prices on their items, that is a plus, however just because theres a good deal doesn't make the item good!

Just bought 4 drilled and slotted rotors from brakemotive, converting my C4 over to C5 brakes. I have not installed them yet as my vettes are still tucked away for the winter, hope to install them soon. The rotors are from Powerstop and seem to be very good quality, also got free ceramic pads with them.

I just don't know much about them to make an educated guess on their products.

They are OE quality castings with quality metallurgy at an exceptional price with a one year warranty. They may not be "special" but it beats paying dealer prices for inferior parts.

eBay feedback profile for brakemotive76

We have maintained a 100% feedback rating with over 23,000 buyer ratings. We pride ourselves on our customer service and we stand behind out products fully.

all four of my rotors are cracked...

Our rotors are covered for one year against cracking. If you road race your car like the user in the above post, don't expect them to last. We do not recommend drilled rotors in any racing applications. We have slotted only for those subjecting their rotors to the rigors of racing, but they like all race parts are not warrantied.

All rotors can crack, drilled, slotted or blank. The extreme temperature swings caused by road racing will kill any rotor eventually.

great prices and fast shipping!! Very impressed...

We have been on LS1Tech for a long time, there are a lot of independent reviews there as well as other forums.

Thanks,
Adam
