    Just saw this photo for a new B5 challenger HC in stock ...

    Looks like a mid-year design change / vendor switchover with two circular slots plus sweeping slots. Anyone else seeing this ??

    Dodge must be gearing-up for the 2017 model year, because there is going to be a lot of competition with the new Camaro ZL1 and GT500.

    Good, when we burn up our OEM rotors expensive factory alternatives are there to spend lots of cash on!

    If these are a new offering, looks like they will dissipate heat better to me.

    Interesting, a concentric ring like that which doesn't "sweep" across the pad doesn't make any sense, how does it not groove the pad?

    Maybe the pads changed as well to match the rotor??? That seems unlikely and a nightmare to produce...

    I agree - doesn't make sense for adding any performance value IMO. Just caught my eye when surfing new vehicle stock.
