I'm looking to buy a set of front rotors and pads for a road course event at Road Atlanta at the end of the month and was wondering if the rotors are the same. I saw where someone said the rotors were cheap at Napa($25 a piece) and was wondering if the C5 & Z06 used the same rotor up front. I am about to replace the fronts and would hate to buy the wrong part. Need help guys....

Also what brake pads should I go with and where is the best place to get them? I can't seem to find a good price on pads anywhere.

C5 rotors and pads are the exact same size as Z06. But, stock Z06 pads are made out of a different material. Other than that they are the same.

I use the NAPA $25 C5/Z06 rotors on the track. They are disposable...

I use Carbotech race pads for the track. They are carried by forum vendor pfyc.com.

They make a full line of pads. Usage goes something like this:
XP8 front, Pather Plus rear (beginner on street tires)
XP9 front, XP8 rear (more advanced driver on high performance tires)
XP10 front, XP9 rear (experienced driver on R compound tires)
XP11 front, XP10 rear (newest full race setup - which is what I used at my last two races)

I've used all of the above combos but the first. They are all good. :thumb:
