When I first got into HPDE stuff in my Subaru, I was running stock brakes. I used cryo'd rotors a couple times, and it did seem that they had improved longevity compared to non-cryo'd rotors. Eventually I shifted to bigger WRX-size brakes, and with good quality (Centric Premium) rotors being cheap and easy, I decided I didn't need to do the cryo thing anymore.

Wow how many times you done the brakes on your sub? 4? You must drive the crap out of that thing.

Well, I started auto-xing it in '98 and did my first HPDE in '00, so it's seen plenty of use. And I'm definitely hard on brakes.

They won't help any with stopping power but they might last a little longer.
