Power Slot Cryo'd Rotors ?'s

Time for new front pads and rotors. It will cost me about an exra $100 to go from OEM rotors to the Power slot cryo's. Who has them and do you think they are worth the extra $$$. I talked to Barry and he thinks they are worth it, just want to hear everyone else's .02.

IMHO, unless you are driving high performance or heavy duty toeing needing super breaking power, its not worth the bucks!!

I have had Power Slot rotors (Non-Cyro) on since early '04, absolutely no complaints from me on them. Have you checked out Riffraff Diesels prices? I also run the Hawk SD pads and am pretty happy with them too.

Not sure if the cryo treated ones are worth the extra money as I have no way to compare them.

I've got them with the hawk pads. I did notice a difference in stopping distances as compared to the stock set up.

I have a 12k+ 5th wheel and it seems like every other time I tow it I warp the rotors, thats why I was considering the cryo's.

OH, and Clay will get my money before anyone else does.

Do a search with my user name and the seach term "cryo" in this forum and the Ex forum and you'll get a bunch of reading.

Cementite is the cause of your brake shudder and you cannot permanently get rid of it by turning the rotors.

Cryo'd Powerslots and Hawk LTS pads are on both my rigs. No more warped shudder feeling, towing my 10k LB travel-trailer is a breeze, and during an emergency stop at freeway speeds one time, I swear the front bumper of the Ex was gonna scrape the road.

kccatpower is starting off with a positive reputation.
the only thing i noticed with them is you can tell a difference between when they are cold and once they warm up if that makes sense. when you first take off they are comparable to stock, once you use them a little they are better than stock. i havent had mine on long enough to see how long they will last.

I have a set. I recommended them to a friend.....we BOTH believe we stop quicker with them. My friend's truck is stock, but mine isn't. I could definitely tell the difference between stock and my Cyro'd Powerslots when braking.

Braking power is critical in my opinion.....they're worth the extra FEW dollars.

Don't forget to get the proper Hawk pads to get the maximum benefit.

Pulling those sized loads and how frequent you pull them I'd pull the trigger on those upgraded rotors and pads. I tow maybe 2-3 times a year pulling 7000 pds so its not on my got to have list.

Thanks for the input guys. Guess I'll go ahead and get the cryo's and Hawk LTS pads.

MAKE SURE you break them in correctly!! I *thought* I did and nearly clobbered someone after floor-boarding the pedal (they were cold, too). The Hawk LTSs definitely work better warm, and I'm glad I have 'em too, after a PROPER break-in.

Thanks for the heads up Joe. Whats the proper procedure for breaking them in?

Gonna call Clay later on and order them, along with a new water pump. I want to replace it before I HAVE to, plus I'm due for a coolant change anyway.

Read up on how to "bed in" brakes. Its essentially several stops from high speeds to get both surfaces to bite as good as possible. You need to do it on fresh brakes before they heat cycle and you've lost your chance.

Also check with hawk to see if they have any recommended procedure.

Same as any other brakes I guess. Was just wondering if there was something different about these.
