Default UUC T-drive rotors

Track season is upon us and I am in need of front rotors. I can get the OEM comp fronts for about $430 for the pair. But I am looking for something else.

I know a lot of people here love the PFCs but unfortunately I don't have $1200 to fork out plus I use Cobalts for the track and I think with the PFCs you are stuck using their pads due to clearance issues.

I also know a lot of members don't like UUC but their T-drive system looks very interesting and is a much better price than PFC. I think they are coming out with the T-drive rotors on 345mm. Has anyone had any experience with their T-Drive system?

Tried to search but I could only find people complaninig about their bushings and shifters.... I have had good luck with UUC in the past so I was surprised to see so many negative threads about them.

I'm not a fan of UUC in general. So I don't expect these to be very good.
This could be the reason you can't find to much info on these, no one feels comfortable buying/using these in high stress braking situation.

Use your oem and swap your pads for pfc, the colblots don't hold a candle to the pfc, they preform much much better in every aspect of tracking. Cost is the only single negative.
After my third year of tracking, I have vowed to only run pfc 01.
I tried many pads and nothing measured up.

UUC has burned a lot of people here. Thats why there are so many negative UUC threads. So I wouldn't hold out for a lot of positive endorsements.

What is wrong with using OEM blanks? I used them on track for quite some time.

I think I am just going to keep using OEM rotors. As far as Cobalt vs PFC, I have to disagree 100%. Cobalts are a much better pad than PFC and they are more expensive. If you pay attention most Grand Am teams run Cobalts. They are not well known in the forums but I bet you more racing teams run Cobalts than PFC.

Nothing at all in fact they a better option for tracking than cross drilled or slotted. I just wish they would make blanks on 345mm.

+1 no for UUC here. Personal experience.

I use OEM rotors and PFC01's and love the setup

I agree about the blanks but I haven't found any blanks on ZCP 345mm size. If anyone knows where to find them please let me know.
