With a two-piece design and a black Alumalite™ centre hat, DBA's 5000 series slotted rotors complement the looks of a great looking performance car. As with every DBA rotor, the 5000 Series 2-Piece rotor bolts right onto the vehicle with no mechanical changes needed.
All 5000 Series rotors feature Thermal Stability Profiling (TSP) for improved heat handling and Thermo-Graphic paint markings for effective heat monitoring.
TSP is a proprietary process specifically developed by DBA for improving the performance of disc brake rotors. Benefits of TSP include:
The ''Kangaroo Paw'' design features a series of 144 diamond- and tear drop-shaped pillars and columns individually spaced between the rotor faces.
This system provides two key advantages.
First, is the ability to cool the rotor faster than ever before. As the disc rotor rotates, aerodynamic turbulence around the individual pillars and columns is generated, increasing the force of hot air out from within the internal areas of the rotor.
Second is increased dimensional stability across the disc rotor directly achieved by the individually spaced pillars and columns.
These advantages increase the disc rotor's efficiency by as much as 20% when compared to conventional rotor designs. A 20% increase in disc rotor efficiency directly translates to reduced brake operating temperatures, brake fade, disc rotor stresses, disc thickness variation, run-out and shudder.
All 5000 series rotors also benefit from DBA's "Longlife Slotted" design. The rotors are manufactured to QS-9000 quality standards using premium grade materials with a high iron content and dense metal matrix resulting in long wear and safe, consistent stopping power.
DBA rotors are chosen as Original Equipment on many vehicles.
