Thank you. You have rated this product.

Drilled slots version (drilled holes are actually IN the slots). The best RX8 brake rotor available in the OEM size...two pieces to save precious unsprung weight with a light T6 aluminum hat!! The highest quality alloyed gray iron composition is heat treated to relieve casting stress, straight slots, surface EDP Coating w/cross cut grinding on friction surface.

These are dynamically balanced after slotting to ensure vibration-free use at high speed. Advanced curve vanes between the rotor halves cool much more efficiently than stock or other replacements for improved cooling. The slots wipe away the white-hot boundary layer from the disc and pad to increase braking efficiency, particularly in wet conditions. The rotor is painted using an "electro-deposition" process for the very best in rust prevention.

Price is for A PAIR! Rear ONE-PIECE 12.3 pounds, rear two piece just 9.8 pounds....save 2.5 pounds per rear corner!!! Fits Factory SPORT size brakes.

INSTALL NOTES: Be aware of the following. The OE bracket is "as casted" and not a precise machined component, and that means a potential rub on the very tips of the hat/rotor bolts as shown below. A few customers experienced interference, you should check this possible interference right after installation. If it does happen you should correct it by removing the extra material from the OEM cast bracket (hand rasp/file will do quick work of it), rather than on the fastener studs. It s easier to correct just one place which will also avoid the needed correction in the future when a new rotor ring is replaced. Making sure hub is clear of all rust and dirt before the rotor slides on will also help avoid this.

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
