I had a genuine HRC iron brake disc fly apart going down the back straight at Mid Ohio. I mashed on the brakes slowing down for turn four, heard a loud-ish bang and was no longer slowing down as much. After I figured out what happened, I kept going, still had one good disc left. When I pulled in, all that was left was the carrier. I was lucky it didn't punch a hole in the radiator or rear tyre.
That's cool. So many people neglect their brakes (or never use their front ones) Also see no problems bedding in new rotors with used pads, if you scuff the pads first. Flat surface and some sandpaper FTW.
well yeah... they had to be dragging for YEARS. Ive seen alot of higher mile boosas with a similar issue. One had a warped rotor a dipshit tried to blame on me... meanwhile the pads...er I mean the backing plates were his friction material...lol
