    More importantly, what kind of soup was it.

    These are the ones I have, courtesy of Home Depot


    Dryer ducting and soup cans (conveniently 3" diameter)

    lol

    I think they also have an additional 5% off if you're a BMWCCA member.

    Anyways good guys, and seem to be a solid product, have held it in my hands and inspected. I bought it a few years back, and stopped tracking my car. The plates are sitting in a box in my attic waiting to be installed.

    Are they "cracking" or are the "heat checking?"

    10 hours seems pretty poor either way. You don't drag the brakes do you? IE use them much longer than necessary?

    I thought I was doing pretty well until a different instructor drove my car with me a few weeks ago, I saw how much further I could compress the braking zone.

    What pads are you running?

    What temperatures are your rotors reaching? If you don't know I would suggest putting some temperature indicating paint in the rotors to find out.

    You could have a pad compound that is really hard on rotor. Ducting won't help.

    You could have rotor rings with "poor" metallurgy. I doubt this is the case with massive. Ducting may or may not help.

    Your rotor temps may be too high, as indicated by the temperature paint. In this case ducting may help. I say may because I'm still not convinced of the correlation between rotor cracking and ducting. My understanding is that the cyclic high temperature events cause the cracking and adding ducting will not change the delta.

    Your rotor For an S50 swapped e30 10-12hrs of track time may be all you can get. I certainly applaud and understand trying to get more out of your equipment. The past two years I have been racing on a college student budget and needed to push my equipment life to the limit... sometimes not working out for me though haha.

    Oh, and I used the Mason Engineering plates. Shimmed them to get them a little closer,
    but they fit well and work just fine.

    How about water spray like the V8's used to run?

    heh

    Current word on the street with the E36 guys is not enough heat can be harder on rotors than too much. What pads are you running?

    How much weight/power and how large speed differential corners do you have to deal with?

    Perhaps just upgrading the rears would be enough? How long are your races? Or is this a hpde car

    Getting 10-12 hours track time out of a $60 set of rotors seems pretty good to me. You could always try the HD's and if you find they aren't worth the extra money just switch back.

    Not sure how Massive Sport Kit gets read as stock brakes.

    Wilwood's have a reputation for cracking. Some of their pre-bedded versions are better.
    I will look into this.
