Galfer or ebc brake rotors?

Looking at getting new rotors since my stock ones aren't cutting it on the track anymore. Looking at the galfer superbike rotors or the cheaper ebc vee rotors, has anybody used either of these just wondering if I should spend the extra $ and get the galfers if they are that much better

Re: Galfer or ebc brake rotors?

Can I ask what your pace is that the stock rotors aren't working? What classes do you race? Be careful because some aftermarket rotors are not allowed in SS classes.

Both Moto_Joe and myself have won championships on stock rotors just as a reference.

I have personally never exceeded the ability of the stock rotors other than turning them blue but they work fine. I'm a front of the pack A expert rider.

I didn't know it was ok to hot spot the rotors like that, if I replace the rotors with aftermarket will it give me better braking performance?

At the extreme limits, yes. But as you can see, you have two championship winning racers telling you the stock rotors are fine, so it is well past where even we can see the difference.
