These are Brembo GT calipers and are not painted.
Why are the OEM rotors better?
They don't seem to flow as well on the back side from the pics I've seen. They don't have the little bolts that are suppose to help with rotor knock back either.
This is something I've wondered about but haven't seen any firm answers too.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
