oem rotor wear, rotor temps

Is it normal to have so much rust on OEM rotors and hub?
Any ideas of what the highest temps these rotors typically see with oem pads at the track?

Thanks!

Yeah, you are fine. I ran stock rotors on the track with paged yellows with no issue. The OEM rotors can take a huge beating. They are very well made.

hey thanks man! I noticed that with the aftermarket backing plate channeling massive air through the veins in the oem rotor it has kept the perforated holes on the rotors unblocked by pad dust and certainly the rotors a lot cooler as a result. but theres brake pad dust everywhere, very messy.
