EBC GD1647 Brake Rotors - 3GD Sport Rotors
GD Series Sport Rotors
Set of 2 Rotors
On a global scale Most EBC rotors are made from
British castings and 100% of these are precision machined in either
the UK or the USA. EBC
Brakes has 14 machining centres in these two countries to
manufacture these precision parts. Rotors are made from high
quality grey iron to exacting standards and undergo extensive
testing and rigorous quality control and are then precision
machined to your chosen slot or dimple pattern.
The dimple drilled rotor was invented by EBC back
in the 90s and has been imitated by many because of its ability to
offer pad degassing without Through Drilling disc or rotor holes
which has been shown to promote rotor cracks.
The wide aperture slots on the EBC units actually
draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface and help cool
the temperatures of the pad contact which can shoot up to well over
1000 degrees at the very heart of the brake pad during heavy
braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect.
These Full sweep slots on the EBC Sport Brake rotor
also help remove dirt dust debris and water from the braking area
but without doubt the MAIN benefit of such sport
rotors is their ability to maintain a flat and parallel pad surface
throughout the lifetime of the brake pad set.
One point to consider before making your choice of sport rotor
is the air noise that can be noticed with sport rotors. With all
slotted rotors there will be an increase in air noise as the rotor
passes beneath the pads under normal driving and braking. Some
people like this kind of Turbo sound and others do not.
Experience has shown us that on Truck and SUV the
GD or 3GD series wind noise is almost unnoticed and on
faster and tuned sedans and hot hatches the GD or 3GD
series as we call them (they are both exactly the same item) is the
