Obviously less is better, but would I be giving up much in the baking force or heat mitigation? I don't know.
that is true but the c6z rotors are a waist with ctsv calipers/pads
the z rotors are designed for short long pads ie a narrow rotor surface, the CTSV and SS stuff are designed for tall short/narrow pads. ie if you use the C6Z rotors your pads will hang over the edge and you wont be getting using all the surface and giving up braking, youll also get some crazy pad and rotor wear.
i only use about 25% to maybe 50% in hairpins of the ctsv 4 pistons braking power.
id run what you got and throw on these for good measure (i run them) http://www.lapponline.com/index.php?...tekibc0aonlke0
