Fcp Drilled And Slotted P2 R Rotors

Recommended Posts

Looking form feedback on the P2R rotors from FCP. These could be a great addition to any BBK using S60R rotors. As a special limited time offer to get feedback they are currently $225 shipped with the Volvospeed coupon code. More info here:

I think http://www.frozenrotors.com/ may be a bit of competition, at $164.42 each, which includes cryotreatment and zinc plating.

Sigh. Totally would have bought these when I installed my BBK. I think I paid around the same for standard iPd rotors.

225 shipped vs 330+ ship.... Not seeing it.

Try factoring in 3X the ware resistance which equals three times the life, and they will not ever warp.

I have never warped a rotor on a street car. And any rotor will warp if not installed correctly. And they do not last 3 times as long. Where did you get those numbers?

Well, lets see, I'm currently at 360,000 miles, so I have some experience on the frequency of brake repair. Another Nay Sayer, who also is a spec racer, was complaining to me how he goes threw a set of rotors and two to three sets of pads in a weekend. I talked him into trying they, and he now gets three full weekends out a set of rotors and goes through 1/2 the number of pads.

So now it saves pads too. Wow. So cyro treating a rotor makes the car lighter or increases the mass of the rotor? You cyro stainless not mild so it does not even make much sense on paper. But in addition, what gains you get on paper are aspects of expansion. Its why gun barrels are cyro treated. Been a long standing myth its for life span when its actually for accuracy... and gun barrels are usually stainless.

There were problems getting a shipping quote. Please verify the delivery and product information and try again.

If this does not resolve the issue, please call in to complete your order.

But seems like a good deal. Way better than refrigerater rotors

Anyone using them? Reviews?

I have. Napa rotors, on the 850 actually. First time not using performance rotors. First time ever warping new rotors.

What about these? $160 for the pair. They even have painted hats so they dont rust out in a week.

Myself and a few of my friends have purchased these, and I have no qualms about putting them on any car I drive.

Side note. Every time I ordered a hat color they always come silver. Not Black. Not Red. Silver.

If it matters to you, you might want to email them after placing your order.

NO, actually it creates a micro grain structure by converting left over austinite from the forging / casting process, converting it to martensite which is a more desirable constituent of the steel amalgam. With the micro grain structure achieved by the process, the rotors will dissipate heat more efficiently and pads will last longer. By the way, the world isn't flat.

Gratz you discovered the tempering annealing process. That is not how you temper mild steels though. More importantly tempered steel does not appreciably dissipate heat faster but thanks for playing.

Damn, I was afraid of taking a cruise for this very reason for such a long time. Lucky for me VS is here to help out. :tup:

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

      Our much beloved V70R (~110K miles) overheated on a family trip from Oakland to LA this week.  It now sits at a dealer/service station waiting either for us to pour more money into it than we can afford right now, or for you to come and pick it up.  Asking $1500, OBO.  Then you can either fix the thermostat (and possibly head gasket) yourself, or part it out.
      We are the original owners, with complete service records.  Right before this trip, it had a regular service and new front brakes done (but, ugh, not the thermostat).
      Needs to happen by Weds July 8, in Los Angeles. Paypal, Venmo works.

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen
