P30 brake upgrades
« on: January 03, 2011, 07:17:19 PM »
Is there anything you can change out on front brakes to improve them? Do they make a slotted rotor to fit? And do the slotted help alot with heat?

What sort of problem are you having?  I had a 36 foot P30 MH and never had problems with the brakes.

I did have a caliber freeze up on the front. What a mess!   Evidently the front brakes get pretty hot on these things. The slotted rotors are suppose to run cooler, which should help out.

A caliper freezing up is usually caused by moisture in the brake fluid.  I'd do a complete flush of the system before I'd try slotted rotors.  I have slotted performance rotors on my Sebring and honestly, haven't seen much difference.
