    Who can tell me which way my power stop rotors are s\'posed to rotate?

    I'm just now (as in RIGHT NOW) getting around to installing the power stop drilled rotors that I bought about 8 months ago. The stickers on tem that had the "left" and "right" side designation have come up missing.... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Does any one know how to tell which is which?

    I believe the leading edge of the drilled holes start from the inside out.

    In otherwords, the one in the picture on the left goes on th passenger side and the other is the drivers. They would look like the pattern a hurricane makes when spinning forward.. Does this make sense? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Just like you picture. The left is on the left and right is on the right. It should rotate as if the slots (holes) are claws digging in /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks all!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    That's what I figured, but didn't know for sure. Got it done. I'll see what slotted rotors are like tomorrow. One dude at a truck shop said "Dude, I did it, you'll stop on a dime." Hmmm /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif We'll see.

    You won't really notice anything until they get hot, mainly after repeated usage, the holes are there mainly for ventalization of gasses and heat.
    But there were times when i would have liked to have those on a couple of trails, where alot of continuous braking was being done. Wasn't a rocky trail, just a "trail" downhill. They are nice and i'll bet they look awsome too. Good luck with em' /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
