Has anyone found good slotted rotors for the 718 S yet? I've seen some from Sebro, but only rears. It's hard to swallow $1200 sets from Girodisc.

I have been using the Sebro slotted rotors with PFC08 pads and RE71R tires on my Cayman S with no issues. With FCP Euro you have the lifetime replacement so even if you're chewing through these pretty quickly if you do the swaps yourself it's economical. What I've found when searching for parts is rather than filtering by your car you need to actually search the OE part numbers and you'll get more results as some parts only show up as 911 parts but have multiple matching OE numbers (in the case of our front brakes they are the same as Carrera). Here are the Sebro slotted rotors at FCP Euro with confirmed fitment on my Cayman S:

Rear rotors: Porsche Brake Disc Set - Sebro 909328C
Front Left: Porsche Brake Disc - Sebro 909331
Front Right: Porsche Brake Disc - Sebro 909330C

Thank you!!! That is very helpful. Have you been using these on-track?

What does the life time replacement mean? They keep giving you rotors for free forever?

correct; but if I recall correctly you pay shipping and handling to return and for the replacements.
Someone please correct me if my memory has failed me.. :censored:

That's a great deal! How do they make money by giving away free rotors?

Only a small % of people take advantage of the deal vs. the marketing benefits of such a policy. They could spent it on adwords or free rotors, arguably the latter has better ROI. Plus I (and others I know) end up buying other stuff from them instead of other online stores that won't need to be replaced, out of goodwill. So I suspect the overall cost of pads and rotors more than pays for itself in customer acquisition and lifetime value.

Thanks a ton! I've got the sebro drilled right now and didn't know slotted was available. Drilled sucks for track so I'm definitely going to give these a try for my next set.

Any other DE or track experience with the Sebro slotted and PFC08 pads? I need to change my rears and rotors too, but the Girodisk numbers don't seem to jell very well. I hear Josh on reduced mainatance time, but the slotted rotors don't extend the pad life (as far as I know, which isn't far). I went through a full new set of OEM rotors and pads in three track days and 2,000 miles.

I've been happy with pagid yellows with OEM rotors for the 2019 track season. I went through multiple rotor sets (all OEM style drilled) but the pads held up great.

Hoping to try the Sebro slotted OEM spec with the pagid yellows for the 2020 season. My shop also does PFC so maybe I'll give them a try at some point. They recommended the pagids over PFC to me. The cost is similar so it's just personal preference.

I used PDC08 on OE rotors last year.
Part season on the CS; 7 track days
  • front pads were done
  • rears 50% (no PTV)
  • rotors are still 80%. They will be done due to cracking rather than just straight wear.
I really like the PFC08 pads and will be using them again this season
I was planning to go Giro rotors but its pretty hard to ignore the pricing on slotted Sebro.

Good to hear about the PFC08 pads. Suncoast uses them on their car. Are you getting the grinding sound too, as opposed to a squeal?

This is a general question - I'm facing a huge learning curve. Is there any issue with changing out track pads and street pads on the same rotors? Are there any issues with bedding? I don't really understand bedding and have always had it done for me by the shop replacing my pads. Does the rotor type (slotted vs drilled) have any affect on this?


Thanks for the info.

I use the PFC08s for track only, I swap the OE pads back in for street.
If you leave the PFCs on for street they will wear very quickly because they don't get up to proper temperature and will just grind the pad deposit (bed in) off of the rotors.

I bed them in at the track on my warm up laps.

I just finished my first track day at Sebring with this setup. Fresh Sebro slotted rotors and PFC 08/11 pads. Car felt great, and so does my wallet! I can't comment on longevity yet but I will update in the future once I need to replace something.
