Whoa, what kinda rotors are those? Do they do any performance? Or mainly for looks? I see it's slotted.

Your lucky all you mx6ers over there drive on the right side. I wish I could have a right side driver mx6. That would be cool.

Nice pics. But what kinda rotors do you have?

Thanks,
They're "RotorDisc"s http://www.rotordiscs.com/main_page.htm
Look under Ford Probe - they made them specially to order for the Ford Probe Owners Club UK and I jumped on their bandwagon.

Performance is certainly better than standard, especially married to EBC Green Stuff pads, but I couldn't compare them to any other performance ones, never having used them. They certainly look better though

Just to add an update:

I threw a rod last week and have to replace the engine. Job starts in earnest tomorrow.

The good news is I got hold of a KLZE engine and am fitting that:

Good looking car Ken. How much did you end up paying for the Ze?

Engine was 450. Had the old one out and new one fitted and running in 2 days - including breaking the gearbox in the process and sourcing a new one fore an extra 140.

Altogether though the whole job including new belts, water pump all oils, filters etc came to a whopping 1200+

For the whole story, check here: https://www.mx6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95151
and here: https://www.mx6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95279

Still, it's all up and running now:

I don't think I've ever seen those brake rotors before. They're definitely interesting. Your car is looking good, as always
