Slotted vs. Slotted/drilled

Wanting opinions and personal experiences with both of these...I'm looking at upgrading my brakes, since my rotors are warped and wanting good info on both. Also..if anyone has any sites with front brake kits it'd be nice.

Just get slotted not drilled. Drilled can warp if you do road racing. When they get really hot. Check out the brake section. I posted a thread call'brake upgrade. Brent put an awesome link in there. Soooooo many dope brakes. Btw, this will prolly be moved.

wait a second, im not claiming to know brakes, but isn't the purpose of drilling rotors to help the cooling. Correct me if i'm wrong but i thought that was the case

drilled and slotted rotors USED to help cooling but the design of pads today do not need these, and a flat rotor will out stop a drilled/slotted rotor due to this.

drilled adn slotted rotors look good, but thats it never rag on them on an autox track and get them hot or they will crack in no time....

slotted is as far as i would go, i have slotted and drilled and they get a little wobbly after 10k miles when you really get on the brakes but normal driving is fine.

I have brembo blanks too but here's what I think.

Blanks are good because you have the most surface area out of any rotor. Make sure, though, that even your rear brakes are vented. Slotted rotors are what I prefer because they allow the gasses that build up when you brake to escape and you still have enough surface area to cause friction and get the job done. Drilled rotors aren't good for us because you lose all the surface area. For people saying that they crack it should be because there is so little space between the holes that the rotor gets weak. It might just be a bad design. As for drilled and slotted, don't do it on a street car. My .02

Slotted are the way to go. Good upgrade & they last really long.

if you want extremly good stopping compared to stock and not breaking your wallet cobra brakes work wonders, i probably picked up 20 percent shorter stoping or more who knows but she will halt when ever i want.
