Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

Did you order those rotors yet? I'd check over at stangsuspension.com they're going out of business, barely have anything left, but they have a few of their own drilled/slotted for cheap, and others cheap too.

Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

Yah, the rotors for that price aren't on there anymore, probably sold out. I think there were only 2 sets left.

Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

I guess the drilled ones provide better cooling than standard rotors. They also prevent cracking and warping if chamfered correctly.

Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

ok this is the low down.
the point of the holes. when the pads contact the rotors they emit a gas. under hard braking the gas builds up between the pad and the rotor and actually pushes the pad away from the rotor. I holes let the gas escape, and increases braking power. If you look performance brake pads have a slot cut in the center of the pad to do the same thing.

As for the slots. when repeated hard braking like when road course or auto cross racing. A pad can form glaze on the face of the pad from over heating. This is called brake fade. The slots are like razor blades. every time they pass over the pad they shave off a small layer of film off the pad. The problem is when used on the street it causes the pads to wear out faster. That's why you only see drilled rotors on cars from the factory.


This has been performance brake rotors 101.
thanks and have a nice day

Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

well you should get just the drilled for the street, but I like the look of the slots. I will be getting the drilled and slotted. It's not a huge loss of pad life. It may take off 10k miles.

Re: Drilled/Slotted Rotors

EBC brand pads are the best on the market. the yellow stuff pads are their most aggressive style.
