    Turning is fine if still in spec, 34mm I think.

    I frankly don’t think it’s possible to get them under spec thickness before huge vibrations unless you are running track pads. Otherwise if you can pay $20 to turn them and be in spec it beats paying for the new $280 each or whatever.

    I could swear there's something in the manual that specifically says that turning is not recommended. Maybe Ford is just hedging their bets, but I'm going to follow the recommendation. I definitely don't want the brakes to let me down on the road course! I couldn't even imagine what would happen if one of the rotors failed in a heavy braking zone.

    There was a release from Ford a while back recommending against turning the GT350 SHW two-piece rotors.

    This is from @btown93 in another thread. (Google search for the SSM finds nothing.)

    I did reach out to GiroDisc and was informed they will not have a rear disc on the market until next year.

    Excited to see how these wear compared to the older versions. Hopefully mixed with brake cooling, they last 2x as long!

    I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of 2019 rotors.

    Received a quote for $1042 with tax, but need to add shipping costs.

    Anyone have a better price?

    Check with Benny at Levittown Ford Parts. They have their own sub forum on this site. He generally gives forum members free freight which is a real benefit in the case of brake discs...

    Awesome stuff, these rears will match better with my AP fronts.

    My oem rotors appear to be doing very well with 15ish track days. I am roasting through front oem pads in 4-5 days and rears in 7-8 days. This is reasonable to me I suppose for a couple reasons (1) track pads are double the price — can fine oem on eBay with deals for about $180 front paid vs nearly $400 for track pads I can’t find deals on or on eBay (2) it’s not hard with the studs to service yourself, particularly rears which doesn’t require unmounting caliper (3) I’m concerned track pads are going to eat up the $1k of oem rotors much faster requiring much higher rotor expense — I may get 25 days+ with oem pads on the tracks I run (M1 concourse, Waterford hills, grattan, gingerman, mid Ohio) (4) I’m fine with the performance and push the corner lateral grip more than I push the utmost in late braking, but I also havnt ever used track pads.

    eBay has a 10% ebucks app deal now, gift cards at Kroger for 4x fuel perks and grocer cc rebates at 5% on Amex, 1.5% topcashback. that’s about 20-25% off net eBay stuff. I’m tempted to get a spare set of the new non-drilled rotors to be ready when mine go, but still contemplating if I want to try ST43s pads instead of buying more oem pads.... Given my post, would appreciate thoughts on the matter? I like oem, only issue is 4-5 days on fronts is a little short but it’s tolerable, for the points i mentioned.

    Edit: am going to try a front set of the 102y cup 2 tires on eBay for $781 before above deals also (vs oem 98y) hopefully get 7-8 days on front rubber vs the 4.5 days I am getting on 98y with 3 degrees camber before chording.
