    :: ECS Tuning :: NEW!! ECS 365mm 2-piece Wave Brake Rotor with Tru-Float technology!!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!


    The ECS 2-piece Wave Brake Rotor with Tru-Float technology is here.

    Our 2-piece Wave Rotors reduce unsprung weight & rotational inertia to improve braking, suspension performance, & acceleration.

    With a hat machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum, the Tru-Float system allows a greater degree of both radial & axial expansion.
    The drilled & slotted wave ring removes weight from the outer edges of the disk and is vented to optimize air flow & maximize cooling. The rings are also made from cast iron to increase strength & stability at higher temps.

    Form. Function. Braun. Beauty.

    Fits:
    Audi RS5 (2013+)
    Audi R8 (2008+)

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    The ad states these are directionally veined, does this mean they are identified as left and right and have an improved design on Audi's cheap shortcut of having a 'one rotor fits both sides' design?

    They look really good, good work ECS.

    You mean like literally every other rotor ring on the market?

    Correct there is a left and right side rotor and the vanes are oriented properly for improved air flow.

    Appreciate the feed back!

    Will this stop the so called pad wear build up, warped rotor feel that comes and goes interminitly ?

    So are these heavier than stock? I had my (new) stock rotor measured at 22.8lbs

    Looks like these rings have considerably less surface friction area due to the higher number of holes, which are bigger than the holes in the OEM rotors, plus the slots... I wouldn't be surprised if actual, real world braking distances increased with these rotors.

    These weren't designed to fix any so called "pad wear build up".

    Our Wave rotors weigh 22.4lbs. So depending on which OEM Audi style rotor you compare it to weight savings will differ.

    If it is true that an OEM Audi RS5 wave rotor weighs 22.8lbs ours are still .4 lbs lighter. Not to mention the huge difference in cost as ours are much less expensive.

    The grooves in these rotors should keep the surface of the pad fresh and should prevent glassing of the pad surface. Pad to rotor transfer usually happens when you hold the car on the foot brake with hot brakes, it can be avoided and cleared easily if it does happen.

    It's your pads, not the rotors. Get a more robust semi-metallic pad.

    Sorry for bumping old topic...but any reviews of them yet?
    My 'stock' rs rotors and pads are nearing end of their life, well especially the pads.
    Planning to swap the pads by Hawk HPS 5.0 but since it is hard to get them here in Europe, i migh import them in combo pack with the ECS 365mm (or maybe 380mm) rotors...
    After taxes etc they should come near what OEM parts would cost me...

    If you are looking for an official review, I haven't seen anything. However, there are a couple of us running these rotors. I personally haven't run them on the track, but member dazed1 has and they held up under very high temperatures. The Tru-Float design reduces thermal stress on these rotors and it seems to work. I run them with a street setup and I'm very happy with them. I have the Hawk HPS pads. The 5.0 are not available for the RS5 front, only rear. Here's my initial impression I posted a while back. I have now about 1500 miles on them and I'm still very happy with the setup. I have done many spirited canyon runs in the meantime, and I love how much more linear this setup is and how much more natural I can modulate the brakes in all situations.

    Trying to figure out if Audi will replace my pads/rotors again, on my RS. If they won't I think it will be ECS Rotors and Hawk HPS pads installed by my local Porsche Tuner shop. I have the ECS brake lines, been waiting to install them until the Stock brakes stopped having issues, but if they won't cover them, no point in waiting any longer.
