Has any one seen the youtube video of Andrew St Pierre White where he shows the problem he has had with his latest troupes rear disc brakes he's not a happy man as you can understand. It popped up on youtube when I was searching have been watching his clips on and off for a couple of yrs first time I've seen this one.

The vid reminded me of a 2008 holden barina we bought new in 2008 and was only driven on road at 24,000km I noticed the front discs were not quite as bad as his but not far off. Was told they use cheap crappy discs that don't get machined just thrown out.
I've never owned a 4WD though with disc that have ever looked as bad as his only minor wear after a hell of a lot of km off road. Something worth checking on your new vehicles and replace if needed.

Anything with traction control/hill descent control etc which relies on the brakes preventing wheelspin/slip will suffer more rapid brake wear in off road situations. and throw in some mud, dust etc and you have even faster wear. . . which is why I like mechanical solutions like diff locks!

The mating grooves in the disk and pads will give more contact area and better braking. Its a feature!

As for his new and improved rotors, is that a dirty great crack at the 6.10 minute mark?

I wasn't sure if it was a crack or a pen mark.
