Post Review: R1Concepts Eline Slotted Brake Rotors Full Kit

Hi All,

It was time to swap out the brakes in terms of the pads and rotors and been looking around for a decent setup for the price.

I decided to go with the R1Concept Eline Brake Slotted Kit which includes the brake pads as well.

Package Included:
-Front and Rear Eline Slotted and Vented Rotors
-Spektrum Brake Pads (R1Concept Inhouse brand pads)

Initial Impressions:
Superb quality and finish. Rotors and pads came packaged well with documentation for the orientation for the rotors for each side. Rotors look identical to Centric Blanks with slots in them. I didn't get the drilled rotors as they risk cracking.
The brake pads are Ceramic Pads and looks to be on par with Centric PosiQuiet pads.
Price paid was around 165 shipped from R1Concepts.

I will be installing these in the next day or so and will update with initial brake feel. For reference, my brakes are worn and the previous owner used Wearever Brake Pads and Duralast Rotors.

Update:
Rotors have been installed and pads bedded in. Sorry for the late update. Overall brake feel is great. Great stopping power initial starting off, cold, and rain. These are a bargain for the price and look phenominal installed. Will post an update after 1000 miles to give an update as to how they are performing after breaking them in fully.

Where did you order from? I need to change out my rotors and pads as well on my 2006 g35x. Interested to see how these go for you. Was leaning toward the centric rotors but they only sell in singles and then still gotta get pads.

Hey there,

I got these from R1Concepts Ebay Page. They are directly shipped from their warehouse and are marked down lower than on their website listings. Rotors were built when I ordered through them and received them in about 4 business days although it may be quicker if you are closer to the Westcoast.

A link for your 06 Brakes:

Mine were cheaper as I have the older caliper design with the single Piston versus the Dual Piston on the 06Xs. For reference, this same kit is quite a bit more from their website for this same setup.

Updated will be posted in the next day or so with the install process and initial thoughts.

Thanks for the reply man! I may get the same set for my year or maybe just get the blanks. Looking forward to your feedback soon as you get them on.

Got these put on. Sorry for the late post. Wanted to wear these in and have the pads bedded in. So far, very good combination. The pad and rotor combination is very decent for the price. With the pads bedded in, they perform great in the cold, rain, and initial bite for starting off in the day.

Hey there,

Dust is quite low. The only dust I have noticed really is the dust in the slots of the rotor but as for the area around the pad itself and the inside of the wheel, not much at all. VEry positive results. The previous pads dusted like crazy all the time.

Not sure. More in line to get their name out more and more. Many people purchase from eBay so offering a lower price to keep competitive with the eBay market is a possibility. For noise, they are quite quiet, Little bit of noise when first setting off but that is with initial break in. I am in the process of finishing the 750 mile break in and will post pictures of how they preform and look.

Thanks for the update! Sounds like they work great so far. Do you still get the infamous brake judder from time to time? But then again I've heard there's nothing we can do to get rid of that on our cars. Looking forward to some pictures and more thoughts on the setup.

Hey there Man. Sorry for the delay with the update.

They do judder from time to time although very rarely.

So far, these brakes are excellent for the price paid .

Thanks!

I had r1Concept rotors back in the day and for the money they're a great bargain. Solid company, solid products and I'm glad they're a trusted vendor on Driver. I tell everyone I know that asks about brakes to check them out.

They are holding up pretty good! Have no problems whatsoever and have been daily driving them for a while now. Highly recommend them as they have been perfect for me ever since I got them.
