EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST -

 

potential group buy, of DBA 4000 Series slotted rotors, for XH's and e-series, and/or x-series.

 

They're the Aussie Made premo heat treated T3 rotors, designed for Motorsport use, and/or fantastic on road stopping power.

 

I've been running a set for a few yrs now with Bendix Ultimate pads, and they've been pretty awesome.
Not one hint of warping.

 

Unfortunately, DBA stopped making them for x-series and e-series, a few years ago.
But they'll do a run of 25 sets as a special group buy,
IF we can get the interest.

 

Coupled with some QFM HPX or similar pads, they're about as good as you can get, if staying with the standard brake setup.

 

The expected price would be north of $200 per rotor.

These are NOT cheapo chinese made disc rotors.

 

If the interest is there, we can also look at packaging them with NOK Brand Hub seals, and/or Timken wheel bearings

(both the Genuine Ford OEM Brands)

 

Any suggestions are welcomed. :)

Remember everyone -

we need a MINIMUM quantity - 25 sets of rotors, of ANY ONE TYPE,

for DBA to even consider processing our order.

 

As others have done......

please reply in the thread, if you would like MULTIPLE sets, of a certain type.

Yep I'm interested as these are what I want to use with the qfm pads as well, didn't know they stopped making them x series though. In the OP you say the cost will be per rotor sorry to be a noob but is the 1 pair or just a single rotor so will need to purchase 4 of to do my car?

Yes... PER Rotor, means a Single Disc, in a box. :)

That's how they come from DBA.

 

The Fronts are usually a bit over $200, and the rears usually a bit less than $200.

I just averaged the value for simplicity, till I can get some firm figures.

Sorry I should have said 'we used to run them'  because we couldn't get them any more we did a brake upgrade to BA rotors and AUII callipers (thanks Hopper Stoppers - LOL)

how did you find them? I found the stopping power is the same but with fuckloads more control as in it won't lock up and slide, very progressive with the PBR

DBA have a minimum order quantity of 50 rotors, before they'll do a run of head treating on them.

 

So far, we haven't been able to drum up the interest.

Unfortunately, I can't afford to stump up the cost of 50 rotors by myself.

 

Thus that's where it's at.

I wonder if DBA, would still entertain a group buy?
I'm not actually sure they even cast the rotors here in Australia anymore?
 
We order stuff through DBA at work all the time, it's interesting that they want a minimum purchase to make some, because normally they will make them when ordered if they have no stock.

Do you have any particular part numbers, and I could see what happens if I try and get P&A?

Yeah that'd be awesome, it's definitely worth asking, for sure. 😎

Here's all the Ford numbers up to e-series -

 

DBA4132S - EF/EL fronts 4000 series slotted heat treated rotors

DBA4133 - EF/EL heat treated solid rears

DBA4133S - slotted heat treated rear

 

DBA4130S - EA-ED fronts 4000 series slotted heat treated

DBA4111B - EA-ED and XG/XH heat treated solid rears

DBA4111BS - heat treated slotted rear

 

DBA4107S - XB-XG fronts 4000 series slotted heat treated rotors

 

DBA4109 - XE/XF heat treated solid rear

DBA4109S - XE/XF heat treated slotted rears

 

DBA4108 - XD heat treated solid rear

DBA4108S - XD heat treated slotted rears

 

DBA4103 - XA-XC heat treated solid rear

DBA4103S - XA-XC heat treated solid rears

 

DBA4106HS - XW-XB up to 10/75 - heat treated slotted fronts

H = Hub type

without H = Hat type

(DBA do a Hub type and a Hat type - assume hat type, is for race applications? - separate bolt on outer discs?)
