Does a slotted actually do better than not? I thought the slots were for faster heat reduction, I didn't think they helped slow the car down any compared to an identical non slotted brake.

They might be made of better material but yes they help the breaks cool down faster

I don't mean materials, just slotted/ drilled vs identical NOT slotted/drilled.

No they won't help you break better unless you upgrade the pads

If one is doing heavy braking, sure, but normal driving conditions don't heat the brakes that much. I guess some people who don't know how to drive. I remember driving with people who are either always using throttle or braking...so sickening.

My ol'lady drives like that, drives me nuts. She warps the rotors damn near every year from overheating them.

From over heating them or them getting hot then water, like puddles?

i recommend all mustang owners swap their rubber lines to Stainless steel no matter how much they drive their cars...it's a very noticable difference right off the bat...plus no more spongy feel when doing some good corner carving

I hated the dust of the stock Brembo front pads and rears that were wearing very uneven. I went with drilled rotors and ceramic pads. For street users like me, they brake virtually the same. They feel at least as good as the oem units. But look ten times more aggressive.

I've always thought that slotted or drilled rotors have less surface area meaning less braking and bite.

Hawk HPS pads are a nice upgrade over the OEM pads.

Speaking from my personal experienced, for street driving only a ceramic pads will do more than enough of slowing down your car to a halt in any braking situition. For this I used Akebono in all my vehicles it has a very good initial bite even in very a cold temperature. Easy to modulate, have a progressive bite and it has a very high heat tolerance compared to many ceramic brake pads in the market. The biggest plus about Akebono is that it has a zero dust issue so your wheels will stay clean from brake dust all the time. The real test for me was my Mercedes, OEM brake dust on those cars are notoriously excessive, replacing them with Akebono improves the braking all around by 100%.

For drilled/slotted rotors on street use are mainly aesthetics in my opinion, you will not drive hard enough to reach your braking treshold to take advantage of their intended purpose. Their original purpose is to dissipate heat and gasses faster during theshold braking or at repeatetive hard braking in short intervals. Combined with track pads they are very effective but other than track use it will eat your brake pads faster and sometimes it will give you a sticky brake feel on regular drivng.

SS brake lines are always a good upgrade but like what I said for street driving not really needed, but a good upgrade never the less.

Hope this helps in your decessions.
