    It looks warped around there too. I hope they replace that with no problem. I have checked my rotors, but not that closely.

    That's not a crack. It appears to be cut. It's too clean for a crack.

    That's REALLY weird looking. Almost looks like it was cut, not cracked. WTH?

    It looks like a Black Panther took a swipe at your Hellcat

    Either a defect with the rotor or happened during service. Did you have any service done that required removing the wheels?

    Maybe a casting defect. Is it clear through the disk?

    I think a crack would look more hairline. That looks more like a casting defect to me. Are you sure it hasn't always been there?

    I blew it up on the screen and there is another nick to the left of the long one. The other one looks like it was hit. There is more defects on around the top.

    This looks like a tiny crack just to the right of the area you are looking at. Probably within normal though... Not sure.

    That's a manufacturing defect that looks to be a candidate for migration...definitely get to the dealer. That should be pristine.

    casting anomaly. I would not worry about it.

    If you were to take ten new Brembo rotors out of boxes, you will find a casting anomaly on every one, if you spend enough time looking.

    Nope not a crack. I went out and took a closer look. It was me. I ducked it up putting in the brake shoes. I gouged it when I was scooting the Pistons back in with a screwdriver. I touched it up with a small file and various sandpaper grits. It's ok now
