After following Power Slot's directions for bedding the rotors with a series of 35 to 5-mph and 50 to 10-mph stops, we drove down to Englishtown to verify what we already felt was a noticeable improvement. As always, we relied on our Stalker ATS radar gun for the most accurate stopping distances possible. The results were very surprising, as usually a simple rotor and pad swap doesn't dramatically improve braking, but the poor shape of the previous pieces in combination with the sticky new tires really let the Z slow down in a hurry. An improvement of over 14 ft in 60-0 mph and over 95 ft in 100-0 mph stops is not at all what we expected. With numbers like that, who needs a big brake kit? Attributing the improved stopping largely to the tires didn't seem at all unfounded when we verified lateral acceleration on our skidpad at .93 g-forces, up from a previous .88 g's. So far this combination has proved reliable, quiet, and low maintenance in addition to the awesome improvement in performance. That definitely makes it a winner in my book.
