Difference in effect between reverse rotation and forward rotation
For slit type rotors, they can be installed in either direction, but the reverse rotation has higher friction coefficient than the forward rotation.
Conversely, the wear of the brake pads is greater in the reverse rotation than in the forward rotation.
The above data is test data DIXCEL Z type pads used on the street and track.
The numerical value of data changes according to the material of the brake pads. In addition, the wear value also changes depending on the application.
Due to these variations dependent on use, DIXCEL recommends reverse rotation of SD type, HS type and FS type of 6 slits so that high friction coefficient can be demonstrated.
SDT type, HST type and FST type (Option 12 slit) to be used in forward rotation, because it is necessary to emphasize the life of the pad when considering the use on tracks.
* If there is left and right in the ventilation with the one piece rotor (depending on vehicle application), there is a designation for the direction of rotation, and the cooling effect will be reduced if used in reverse.
