DBA 5000 Series T3 C8 Corvette Z51 Front Slotted Rotor - Single Rotor
Introducing the DBA 5000 Series—innovative 2-piece composite brake rotors designed as a direct replacement for your C8 Corvette Z51.
Crafted with precision, DBA employs only the highest quality materials to guarantee optimal performance under the most demanding conditions. This includes high carbon cast iron rings seamlessly integrated with aerospace-grade aluminum hats (T6061-T6), bound together using National Aerospace Standards (NAS) bolts and crimp nuts.
The 5000 Series inherits all the cutting-edge technology showcased in the 4000 Series, amplifying performance with added advantages such as substantial weight reduction and enhanced heat management, thanks to the incorporation of aluminum hats.
Featuring DBA's Kangaroo Paw ventilation that implements a series of 144 diamond and teardrop patterned pillars, DBA achieves up to a 30% increase in surface area and 20% improvement in cooling efficiency (as compared to a traditionally straight vane design).
The use of aerospace-grade aluminum hats not only reduces the unsprung weight of the brake rotors but also ensures uniform radial disc expansion across the cast iron rings. Additionally, it minimizes heat transfer from the disc to the hub, providing a sophisticated solution for improved efficiency.
Ideal for high-performance street vehicles, track days, club racing, rally applications, and show vehicles, the DBA 5000 Series brings a perfect blend of advanced technology, weight reduction, and superior heat management to elevate your driving experience.
Hat and Rings sold as complete assemblies and as individual components, for more economical replacement options.
Symmetrical slots and or chamfered drill holes facilitate the exit of friction dust and gasses, for a quieter and more responsive pedal feel.
Aluma-lite centre hat / bell made from extra lightweight 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum, reducing the unsprung weight for better vehicle handling and minimizing heat transfer to the wheel hubs.
Painted non friction areas prevent rust and enhance appearance.
Use Symmetrical slotting and or drilling for universal left/right use.
Thermal Stability Profiling
Heat treatment cycles realign and microstructure of the iron, resulting in increased rotor stability and durability.
Centre split core castings for increased heat transfer and thermal efficiency
CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) Machine turned finish, minimizing disc thickness variation and the potential for pad "Knock" and resulting premature wear.
Thermographic Heat Paint
Paint marking change color at specific temperature thresholds to assist with the monitoring of braking temperatures and rotor fatigue.
High Carbon Alloyed Iron
Formulation allows for optimal interaction with DBA's thermal stability profiling(TSP). Increases the capacity of the rotor to handle constant and extreme heat over prolonged periods.
Unique Kangaroo Paw vane design for up to 20% better heat dissipation, increasing braking effectiveness and prolonging brake life.
NAS Bolts & Nuts
National Aerospace Standards (NAS) bolts and crimp nuts for maximum strength at minimal weight.
