Power Slot Front Left Slotted Rotor Cadillac Escalade 02-06
The Escalades utility, reliability, and reputation has made them one of the most popular brands in America. Escalade’s heavy duty axles and driveline along with its massive torque makes it ideal for towing. All of this equipment adds a tremendous amount of weight to a vehicle, meaning stopping distances will increase. Towing greatly increases the amount of strain on your braking system. Because of the trailer or loads extra weight the heat generated by the brakes can easily cause brake fade or warp the rotor leading to costly repairs, or even worse, brake failure. A braking system in such a large powerful vehicle is put under much more stress than a normal passenger vehicle.
What good is power without control? The ability to stop quickly is just as important as accelerating quickly, especially on a race track. As any weekend racer will tell you, factory brake systems will quickly overheat and fail when put in even moderate track conditions. That means worn pads, warped rotors and expensive repair bills
Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or "outgas." As the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surfaces and inhibits performance. Power Slot's exclusive Vac-U-Slots are machined into the rotor and help evacuate gasses and dust, shed heat, and keep the brake pad surface clean. And in wet, raining conditions, Vac-U-Slot helps push water off the braking surface for better stopping power. The Vac-U-Slot also serves as a visual wear indicator. The slot is machined to the rotor’s minimum thickness where it crosses the outside edge. If you cannot see the slot along the outside edge, the rotor has worn down to its discard depth. A combination of high performance brake pads and Power Slot’s slotted rotors will deliver superior, reliable braking for virtually all automotive, truck and SUV applications, even under hard driving and severe duty conditions.Please contact us
