rear brake rotor replacement

Any wisdom as to what performance aftermarket rear rotor to go with?
I am using stock rear brakes with Hawk DC-60 pads.
The stock rotors have radial cracks across the entire swept surface.
It was probably luck alone that one of them did not explode.
Since the pads are aggressive, good or excellent performance with cost-effectiveness would be a bonus.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
 
I'm 2 years now on my rear stock rotors with the same DTC60 pads. I get over a dozen track days....maybe more on pads and 20-30 days on the rotors. Are you running with AdvanceTrac completely off? Do you have the 302R ABS module or the stock one? Do you have a picture of the cracks? I'm wondering if it's normal heat checking or something worse.

Depending on the track, I get 1-2 days on front DC-70/Baer-R and about 4 days on rear DC-60 pads.
AdvanceTrac is gone as I have Motorsport ABS in the car.
I'll follow up with a pic when i get the car out of the trailer.
Thanks Buddy!
