Rotor fin direction

Just going through some things on car . It has the c5 rotor upgrade . I noticed the fins in the middle or rotor are at an angle . My question is .... Are they directional ? Right now , looking down on them , the fins are going counter clockwise . I would think they should be clockwise to pull air into the hub area and help cool rotor . Or am I mistaken ? Also is there such a thing as a right and left side on the factory vette rotors ?

Sorry for all questions ,
Don

Hey Don.

The rotors should be marked L and R.

The air actually goes in through the middle and out through the fins. The fins on the RF should be facing so the air goes out rearward at the top. Contrary to popular belief, they aren't "scoops", they're "exhausts".

Hope that helps.
