Aren’t the rotors on your daily driver cast? I know mine are and they warp.

I have a set of TBM pads on my car right now. They stop really good, dust and wear is about average. Just as good as Carbon Larains for 1/2 the price

I just put a set of Baer Brakes dual-calipers on the rear of my S10 (I left one set off for now since I don't need to "Park It" at the stripe).
They are ventilated Cast rotors (yes they are heavy) but my guess is, the last brakes this S10 will ever need.
Originally these were headed for the dragster but they were simply just to HEAVY. I would guess the rotors are maybe 10 pounds. More like road-race brakes actually.

I used lamb on my last car and they sure rolled good but could not get them to live. first season3 sets of rotors and pads. next year I went to the heavier cast iron rotor, later in the season was lucky to find one of them broke..... I sold all of it..

I hear you. My engine builder dumps the laundry to keep from breaking out.
