I'm grabbing some off eBay as well, zinc dipped drilled/slotted rotors..

Is there anything else you need to buy with them?
What's the dangers?
Any tips?

Re: Drilled n slotted rotors?

This is new to me, but I just heard from a friend of mine, that the Cross/Drilled Slotted Rotors Can Not be "Shaved". The only thing you can do is Replace the whole Rotor.

You mean having them turned? Even if I could I wouldn't want to have them turned anyway. I'd just by new ones and call it good. I only paid about 200 for all four of my rotors anyway. So far I've notice a pretty good difference in stopping power over the stock ones so it is worth it.

Re: Drilled n slotted rotors?

Where are you getting them from on Ebay? Is it RotorPros?

I got my slotted/dimpled rotors from them a couple years ago...hottcobra and purevenom recommended them and they've been great so far.
