Embarking on this project, the EBC Brakes Racing team’s mission was a clearly defined one; to develop the highest quality 2-piece floating brake rotor available on today’s marketplace. The components and technology used in these brake rotors exemplifies this pursuit of ultimate and absolute quality, culminating in a brake rotor that is perfectly matched to the highest braking demands of modern performance road and race cars.

EBC Brakes Racing’s 2-piece fully floating rotors have been tested to withstand hundreds of hours of the harshest track driving, however, these rotors are not a track only product. Features such as anodized hubs, stainless-steel hardware and the incorporation of anti-rattle clips mean these rotors are road friendly, making them the perfect choice for customers who enjoy regular track days yet also drive their cars on the public highway.

Where many OEM’s will sacrifice performance for cost saving on tooling, EBC Brakes Racing make the left and right rotors with individual tools to ensure balanced cooling on each side. All cast iron rings feature 48 curved vanes that ensure the vanes always rotate in the correct direction, giving maximum cooling efficiency. Look down the vanes of an EBC Brakes Racing rotor ring and it will be immediately apparent how smooth the cast features are compared to most competitor rotors.

Every outer ring is cast from the highest-grade G3000+ premium disc alloy. Derived from race technology and having a high carbon and high copper metallurgy it has superior thermal conductivity and heat cycling durability for maximum brake rotor life and performance, particularly during harder driving or track driving.

EBC Brakes Racing put as much effort into development of our rotor metallurgy as what we put into development of our pad friction materials. The pad and rotor combined form the friction coupling; if either component is of poor quality then the outcome will likely be poor overall system performance. The best brake pad in the world used on a low-quality rotor with a bad metallurgy will result in merely average overall performance, since the pad will not be able to deposit the ‘transfer layer’ onto the brake disc that is critical to high brake system performance. For this reason, EBC Brakes Racing use only the highest quality disc alloy available.

The mounting bells used in EBC Brakes Racing’s 2-piece rotors are each precision machined from a billet of aerospace grade aluminium, ensuring they are both strong and lightweight. The bells are subsequently black anodized, providing an aesthetically pleasing and corrosion-resistant finish, allowing the mounting bells to be re-used for multiple outer friction rings thus leading to lower long-term running costs.

One of the smallest yet most innovative components used in EBC’s 2-piece fully-floating brake rotors is the stainless-steel SD-Drive™ bobbins. Unlike most competitor bobbins that are machined from steel and then zinc plated to cut cost, every SD-Drive™ bobbin is machined from a single piece of stainless-steel, meaning these bobbins can never rust. Eliminating rust not only keeps rotors looking great, it ensures that the rotor will continue to float freely for years to come, reducing maintenance and extending lifetime.

Rotor rattle is reduced with the use of a spring clip on every SD-Drive™ Bobbin and the bobbins can be reused multiple times, leading to a significantly lower long-term running cost where only the outer ring needs be replaced.

It is widely acknowledged that a vehicle is constantly working against its weight whenever it is moving. Weight blunts acceleration, reduces deceleration, and slows the rate of changes in direction. A brake rotor clearly adds to a vehicles weight but more importantly it adds to a vehicle’s unsprung weight. The fact that the brake disc is rotating also results in it having a rotational inertia.

The impact that a brake disc has on vehicle dynamics is therefore more significant than any other weight-adding component on the vehicle. The fact that EBC Brakes Racing’s 2-piece rotors offer a significant weight saving compared to similar sized brake rotors leads to improvements in acceleration, ‘dive’ under braking, and tyre road holding. Particularly in the case of SG2FC 2-piece conversions, the improvements in response of the vehicle before and after the upgrade is profound and highly perceptible by the driver.

It is advised to always use new pads on a new rotor and top choices for this application are either EBC red stuff low dust or yellow stuff high friction compounds.
