    We have started production of slatted performance disc brakes for cars available in India. These disc brakes will improve car's braking and will reduce brake fade to a certain level.

    Attached pictures are for the Swift make - diesel & petrol. Ideally the braking efficiency in the car will improve by 15 to 20% but we will base our claims only after testing the brakes on a real cars of customers.

    Hey Kailash,
    Seeing the pics. for the first time. Amazing work on the dics. Along with performance, we also need to lay emphasis on safety. Whats the use if the car is fast and it cannot stop in time.

    hi kailash can you please post some technical details about these rotors? what grade is the surface finish, how the slots help in better performance etc?

    Also can these slots be machined on our OE brake rotors, i mean just take them out machine it on CNC/VMC and give it back to us?

    how much do the cost for swift and linea?

    All Discs are high quality discs, they are OE, OEM or from foundaries that make OE/OEM Discs. We are not using any cheap chinese or other quality discs. Prices depend on the buying in price of the disc before machining them.

    Slotted discs are often wrongly associated with racing. Discs like Tarrox G88 are certainly very good for racing and might look good but they are a wearing the pads in an extreme rate. We have opted for 4 slots design each side of the discs in order to minimize the pad wear against plain discs but for continuous braking enough slots in order to gaurantee sufficient gas evasion as well as deglazing of the brake pads.

    We are building the range up at the moment and we have to set the prices individually as per the availability of the discs and inform you the pricing as we go along. Please bear in mind we want to give in a good deal and are on constantly on the hunt of improving the end user prices and hence might have a delay in new releases for individual car which is mainly due to prolonged negotiation processes.

    The current pricing for the Swift discs are Rs 9500 + delivery charges (on actuals). These discs can be fitted easily and is a routine job,instructions only to be followed as per Torque7 instructions.
