So if you're saying it won't explode or crack upon compression, how would you explain how it is going to fail??


...Either way I got new OE rotors & pads so that should cool your jets a little, eh?
The rotors or pads could overheat due to design/material defiencies. We all know that overheated pads and rotors do not stop. That's where a rollcage, helmet, and EMT would come in handy.

And good job on getting OE pads/rotors. Your car will give back what you put into it.
