Chevy Camaro brake rotors are essential components in the disc brake system, providing the surface used by the brake pads to produce the friction needed to bring the vehicle to a stop. Many vehicles are equipped with four brake rotors, one at each wheel, while others use brake rotors on only the front wheels, using the drum brake system on the rear. Brake rotors are made of cast iron, and are available in a number of varieties.
The most common style, installed as standard equipment in most vehicles, is made with a series of cooling fins between the two smooth surfaces with which the brake pads make contact. These are included in the design of these brake rotors to help in the dissipation the heat produced by the friction of the braking process.
Heat dissipation is very important, helping to prevent problems such as brake fade or warping of the brake rotors that can result from an overheated brake system. Chevy Camaro brake rotors are made in several custom variations as well, designed to offer enhanced braking performance.
One popular custom style is slotted brake rotors, which use shallow channels in the disc surface to shed used brake pad material more efficiently. Drilled brake rotors are another custom variation, using a series of small holes through the surface to enhance heat dissipation. Some custom brake rotors use both methods to enhance braking performance, their surfaces both slotted and drilled.
