Cryo or cross drilled?

I have been looking at brakes and not sure which ones to go with. Ne one tried the cryo treated discs? Do know that i am getting EBC red stuff pads, just not sure whether or not cross drilled or the cryo. I am a pretty spirited driver...if that helps at all.

Re: Cryo or cross drilled?

how about stock? its better than both of those combined. cryo treated is basically useless. and drilled means less surface area for the pad = worse braking.

Friction is not subject to surface area, just pressure & the coefficient of friction between the two objects. so drilling has 0 effect on braking power.



For the Thread starter... what are your plans for this car? as drilling adds no benefit aside from looks, with the added issue of increasing the likelihood of cracking the rotors under heavy use. And cryo treatments haven't been definitively proven to do any thing...

Re: Cryo or cross drilled?

I am just looking to improve the exterior looks. Not looking for a drag car or nething like that. It is stock besides intake, header, cat, and exhaust. those are the only things getting done to the car as i have a 68 stang for the 'race' car feeling.

Re: Cryo or cross drilled?

Well, then it really doesn't matter much. Drilling looks cool, but tends to reduce the service life of the rotor, where Cryo-treated rotors supposedly extend the life of the rotor, but just looks like a regular rotor.
