well, it kind of depends what kind of upgrade you're looking for.....just pads? pads/rotors? pads/rotors/calipers? bigger rotors/calipers? etc et c.

Is it possible to use 35Z track edition rotors with the 300ZX calipers and Jeff's brackets? The size of the track edition rotors are 12.8" which isn't too far from 13". Let me know what you guys think as that would be more options in terms of rotors.

When the vanes inside the rotors are curved, having them installed in the correct direction will make the rotor itself act as an air pump, effectivley "pumping" hot air out from inside the center of the rotor to it's outer edges and out through the outside while the rotor is turning.

Of coarse this only applies to curved-vane rotors...

In for the painted rotor hubs or 2pc rotors

Otherwise, a sweet looking setup

Finally painted my calipers and my one non-zinc coated rotor. In the process of the painting I realized that when I had my new tires installed 2 weeks ago that the shop put 2 hubcentric rings inside ONE wheel....so for two weeks my car was vibrating like a madman on the highway. Now the second ring is out and it's driving like normal, thank god.

I think it really only matters which direction the internal rotor cooling vanes are facing. They should dissipate heat away from the center of the rotor. As far as the direction of the slots on the surface, I always thought they function and look better when the outermost edge of the slot contacts the pad first (ex. 1fstmax's brake setup).

Its the audible brake wear indicator. Once the pad is worn out, it will rub on the rotor and make a continuous screech noise- which will go away as you hit the brakes...

Stock pads are the same way, as far as A32-A34 go.

As BlackBIRDVQ said, its just the sensor that hits the rotor when the pads run low. What brand pads are those Kev?? Usually the sensor is on one end of the pad itself. I have never seen it sticking out from that end towards the rotor's hub area.

that only works if your master cylinder is sized properly with your pistons and brake setup. when you go to the Z32 calipers, your master cylinder reservoir is too small to go by that. in fact, you'll run out of fluid in the reservoir before you run out of brake pad.

I actually just had to refill mine because of this. I'm running Q45 calipers though. Pads are fine.

I will measure the rotors and soon you will see pics of them installed.

Each rotor is 13lbs.
