some surface cracking is considered normal. If the crack goes through, that's another consideration. But in answer, I've never had it happen.

I've had Baer Eradispeed drilled & slotted rotors on my vette for 2 1/2 years and I race hard ... no warpage here .. but I was very careful to "break them in " properly .. I've heard of two guys that had cracks .. neither had "seasoned" their new rotors properly ..

I'm a bit late to this conversation, but could someone explain the proper procedure to "season" new rotors? I've heard of the term before, but do not know of the process and what is involved. Thanks. :huh:

Kramer:
To season new rotors you follow the directions that come with the set of rotors that you select (they have different instructions for diffierent types & brands) , but generally it is taking your new rotors through a series of fast & slow stops in order to heat & cool the rotors - some brands start slow & move to faster ie go 30 mph & stop hard .. go 50 mph & stop hard etc. and some brands start fast ie go 75 mph & stop fast , go 60 mph & stop fast ... etc.
It is a very important step that a lot of people do not do properly & thus ... warped rotors ...
Hope this helps.

I have put some pretty good cracks in stock rotors on a couple of different cars.
