MTEC Brake Discs

I'm pretty sure the response I'm gonna get here...

But I have seen these on Ebay (LOL).

Nissan GTR R35 Front 380mm x 34mm Replacement Rotor Brake Discs Pair 2007-2010 | eBay

Is it possible that these could be any good? What sort of Reputation do MTEC have?

Considering these are cheaper for a pair than a single disc from the likes of AP or ALCON it's definitely got me intrigued...

I don't need any discs so i'm not considering purchasing but others may be interested.

Note that on one of the pictures they recommend using the grove style 'If you are doing motorsport or Track Days' .... Seems they have confidence in their own product!

Anyone want to be a guinea pig?? lol

Thoughts?

Just looking around on forums etc....

and seemingly they're getting the thumbs up from quite a few communities including: Evo X, BMW 5 & 6 series, Civic Forum....one guy claimed he ran them on 4 race cars with no issues!

Granted none of the above have performance on par with the GT-R and especially with the GT-R's reputation for ruining the front discs means should definitely be cautious!

Still intrigued tho!

Personally I wouldnt 'take a chance" on brake disks as it could be an expensive fail, I've took a chance of brake pads in the last few years and lost, borg+beck and Brembo HP2000 both crap!

I'm using Hawk pads now which are good, and/or Ferodo ds2500 and will stick with them

Ref disks I think AP seem to be the most stable, Alcons seem to suffer some warping now and again, mine did but where sorted with skimming, and i've heard other stories about alcons on R35.. my next disks will be AP.

From the Midlands I think mate, paid around 800 for J hook discs and Hawk Race pads, the car didn't jutter or falter once on our little joyride to and from wales in various weather conditions from very hot to pissing wet.

Went for a spirited run the other day as well and the brakes were bang on, can't fault to be fair.

I will never take my car on track so might be worth someone testing on track but these discs are spec'd to be on par If not better than the AP's, guess all someone can do is test but fast road is good thus far

How did you find the Hawks compared to other pads you have used? Hawk HPS?

And why won't you use your car on track.......

I have wondered about j hook disks instead of normal, do they give much better stopping power tho?

thanks

I found the hawks were awesome on the cool and warm days, but the cold cold bite isn't as good as the pads there were on it before I don't think.

just can't be arsed to take it on track to be honest, I like my car and don't want to A: smash it to bits, B: have someone else smash it to bits, C: blow my engine to pieces LOL

I don't think they give much better stopping power in honesty, not noticeable over what I had anyway...... I only went with them because I don't want the cracking that comes with drilled discs

A: smash it to bits, TOTALLY AGREE
B: have someone else smash it to bits, TOTALLY AGREE
C: blow my engine to pieces LOL - TOTALLY AGREE, IM STILL NOT OVER MINE YET!!

i have self banned mine off track for now, well its been over 12 months as I am still emotionally scarred over my last track day, when my engine let go. Maybe I'll change my mind in the future, maybe not.

When I sell my TT I'm going to get an Evo in one version or another and smash that around a track, pretty bomb proof and I won't be overly precious of it.

Of no real relevance but I use mtec discs on my X5 40d and 306 gti with ebc yellow pads (I fitted them myself). No issues stopping in either but then I'm not tracking them.

I guess the question is if they can stand the heat when pushing hard? I guess only one way to find out! I've got relatively new Alcons on my car at moment and unfortunately it's currently off the road so I can't help.

Anyone else given these discs a go? I need new fronts, and will get through them quite quick. So be interested to know, as for £450 they are half the price of AP etc
