Question Cross-Drilled/Slotted Rotors and Brake Dust?

I was wondering from those of you that have cd/slt rotors and how much brake dust compared to stock.

Just looking for brake dust info and brake pad info here, thanks.

I've been running hawk hps+ pads with dimpled slotted rotors for a few years now. Chrome 18's and the dust isn't too bad. I do clean the car after almost every drive though.

EBay rotors come with 1 year warranty on warping and lifetime warranty on cracking. They run less than $200 for all 4 with ceramic pads.

My buddy made the mistake of buying those. Stopping power was worse than stock, and it only took 2 months before they squealed like hell. I pulled em off on put on some quality oem rotors and hawks pads he bought and it was much much better, and safer. Never cheap out on brakes.

Dimpled rotors are fine, just be careful with full blown drilled rotors, if you abuse them too much (ie tracking the car or lots of heavy spirited driving) they will begin to crack over time and (obviously) become useless

The cheap ones on eBay come with lifetime warranty against cracking. Now that's a good warranty. Just send them rotor and they send new one. No cash back but hey they covering your ***

We just did this kit from Summit- it includes dimpled/slotted rotors and ceramic pads from PowerStop. High quality stuff.

Well like I said if you plan on abusing your brakes then be prepared to have some warranty returns. Just because they have lifetime warranty. Doesn't mean they're good. It probably just means they can get them super cheap and sell them to you for that price. And anyone that's serious about tracking their car would know better than to get some cheap eBay stuff

Hey brother I'm not jabbing at you so no reason to be passive aggressive. Trust me I don't have all kinds of money, I'm just wise with the money I do have.

But I guess the fact that the rotors do crack quite often means little to nothing to you. I'm not saying they're all bad just because they're eBay rotors, but they definitely aren't great. And I'm glad your buddies are doing well. But drilled rotors are farrrrrr more probe to cracking that dimples rotors. Plain and simple.

I just try to spread knowledge to those that ask and those that don't know. So no need to get all huffy and puffy

I put 5000 miles on car last year. Easy driving, no burnouts or no braking hard. So they will do me fine. Sorry if I came off like a dick but we just buried my cousin, so just a lot of **** on my mind l, sorry. I will make post if anything goes wrong.

It was 120 for reg rotors or $160 for drilled and slotted. I just got chrome cobra wheels so an extra 40 for looks. Sorry once again.

Well, looks like I need new pads and rotors all around so that summit kit is looking pretty good.

That and some braided lines shoud do the trick.

Thanks again for the info.

I've got a set of Drilled and Slotted rotors from Mustangs Unlimited about a year ago. I do some AutoX and Drag Racing, and I tend to drive her really hard too. Lol But I've had no problems with any types of cracks or warping of any kind. My car is also a DD year round here in Michigan.

My buddy cracked the ones on his Shelby but that's cause he does open track racing (usually hits 150mph on the straights). It takes more heat than Auto X or street driving can generate to crack them.

I'm running Baer Decelarotors and Decelapads and I love them. I don't track it a lot maybe 3-4 times a year but I have never experienced brake fade with them and no cracking because they dimple the drill holes. I also back road aggressively a lot lol
