Here are his other rotors from an earlier day which are full floaters.
He cracked two rotors in one event? Sounds like the cracked rotor is the symptom of a stuck caliper. Was it the same corner?

I believe OEM min thickness is 28mm; I ran my last set down to 26mm with no issues in 9 track days using Pagid RS29 pads. They actually looked quite good!

It's 28.4. It is printed on the rotor hat.

2 different events.C6 Z06's in the proper hands just fly at WGI.Cracked rotors seem to be quite normal around the fast guys in these cars.I know from his incar video he is entering the braking areas at least 10 mph faster than I do which is a lot more energy to deal with.
