Grooved Mtec Discs

Recommended Posts

I got my car back from the garage with the MTEC grooved (just grooved not drilled) discs back and Mintex pads.

I have run the car for a few 100 miles and braking seems very good.

But I have noticed that they have been fitted with the grooves pointing a different way to the way they did on my previous car. On my Toyota they are fitted like this:

where as on my old car they were fitted the other way with the bottom of the groove htting the pad first

I know some disc manufacturers tell you fit them a certain way.

But I think the MTEC discs are are re-manufactured OEM discs are they not?

The grooves on my discs are straight rather than curved like they were on my last car.

Any ideas/ tips?

Am I going to crash and die?

the way round you have them is better i think cos it makes the pad bite into the groove although that could be total utter **** i just posted i'm really not sure. having said that i went for looks when fitting mine so mine are the other way round lol.
