i'd go CSL rotor route. especially if youre consdering a caliper kit that uses the CSL rotors down the line.

the aluminum hats and (floating) design of rotors along with perforated rotors really sheds some weight and assists the temps.


I think I値l be going this route.

I already have some spare CSL calipers and carriers.

The fact that most BBK upgrades go off of the CSL rotors is definetly a plus as well.

And if I知 ever doubting them (cracking) I値l just replace em

Hey - if you ever go the 996 route, I have a set of never used rear rally road brackets since I went with P0lar's brackets. I'm great at buying stuff I never use...
