Can't you two just talk to each other via text?

And Lordco should have some of the above that he mentioned. Any reason you need premium brake rotors?

OEM...works fine..

unless you track your car or something..then you'll want to get slotted and/or drilled rotors

Mine are warped too... 02-04's don't like highspeed braking. It seems it's just not that great in quality, or i've hard braked one too many times.

I'm looking for decent alternatives as well that will clear stock rims/my RGII's

One of the Revscene sponsors carries Stoptech - Advance Automotive.

I know for a fact that they do carry Stoptech. Not so sure about Brembo or Powerslot. However, I have asked Lordco at one point and they did carry both Brembo and Powerslot. Not so sure if they do anymore.

Also, if you do go to Lordco, ask them what the price is on the rotors over the phone. Call another location and mention that you have an account under Revscene. I believe the discount is 30% off. That way, you ensure you get your discount and that you don't get screwed.

Edit: Just read Berzerker's comment about going aftermarket over OEM. Both can warp just as easily but OEM quality - although I don't necessarily swear by it, I've come to experience that it's far more better in terms of quality than some aftermarket parts. Brake rotors are one of them. Did you know that Stoptech now owns Powerslot?

I'm currently running a Rotora setup. Their rotors and pads are awesome. The stopping quality is better than what I've experienced with OEM but in all honesty, did I need it? No. I only decided to get it because I got it at a deal I could not refuse and it was significantly sponsored by Rotora for the DTP show. OEM would have sufficed for my driving habits. Did I notice a difference? Yes, but I honestly did not need the Rotoras. Just some food for thought and playing Devil's advocate.

You're either stomping on your brakes or running aftermarket pads which do generally generate more heat. Warped rotors are a result of overheating caused by what I mentioned.

If anyone with a RSX-S wants them , I have a set of powerslot plus rotors and brackets in F.S. This will permanently solve the warping issue.

That is just NOT true at all. If you look on the edge of a brembo rotor , it is stamped with the brembo logo , and the word brembo. Oem rotors for honda don't even look like brembo rotrs , totally different casting.

Yes , some japanese cars' wheels are made by enkei , and others even rays , but not enough to say "usually" for instance , only OEM ITR wheels and NSX wheels are made by enkei - in fact - the 02- up nsx wheel is forged , made by BBS
Toyota wheels are mostly made by aisin - owned by toyota

I'm with you on this one. I've never actually seen a brake rotor "warp". For the most part, it is caused by uneven pad deposits on the rotor, and since resurfacing/machining the rotor will cure that problem, people think no further and believe that the rotor was "warped".
