    The VR Holden Commodore was first released in 1993 and its facelift, the VS, was introduced in 1995 and produced up until 1997. The flagship SS featured Holden’s 5.0L V8 putting a then impressive 165kW and 385Nm. This meant an abundance of low-down grunt, making the family sports sedan a pleasure to drive on a daily basis as well plenty of fun on the odd spirited drive. The SS also featured a few styling cues to separate it from the more ordinary Commodore variants, such as a factory bodykit, boot spoiler, red body stripes and some interior tweaks, including SS insignia on the seat backrests.

    Now more than 20 years old, the VR and VS SS Commodores are certainly getting on in terms of age. This means that freshening up and replacing braking components certainly isn’t a bad idea to only restore, but improve braking performance from when they first rolled off the assembly line back in the early 90s.

    Here’s just a few reasons we believe the DBA Club Spec Road & Race 4000 Series T3 slotted rotors are the perfect performance replacement rotor for your VR-VS Holden Commodore SS:

    T3 Slot 48 precision CNC machined slots
    Advantage: Tri-Symmetrical curve slots dampens the vibration harmonics or noise.
    Benefit: A quieter, responsive and smoother brake pedal feel.

    Kangaroo Paw – 144 diamond and tear drop pillar ventilation system
    Advantage: Increased surface area resulting in greater heat dissipation.
    Benefit: Minimises brake fade and increases braking effectiveness.

    XG150 High Carbon Alloyed Iron
    Advantage: An increase in thermal capacity property allows the rotor to handle constant extremes of heat over extended periods of time.
    Benefit: Minimises warping and cracking and prolongs the service life of the rotor.

    Thermographic Temperature Monitoring
    Advantage: Heat paint markings change colour at specific temperature thresholds.
    Benefit: Allows the driver to monitor rotor fatigue and decide on rotor replacement and to assist resellers with warranty claims.
