Default Rotors

Should I get drilled and slotted or just slotted rotors?

I would just get slotted ones. Drilled ones vent the pad a little better, but you also reduce effective brake surface area when holes are drilled in the rotor. Unless you are doing SERIOUS track days, slotted will work fine, just be sure to get good pads, like Hawk HP pads or a similar pad

slotted all the way, drilled can crack and no one wants that

check http://search.americanmuscle.com/?query=rotor&x=0&y=0


promo code "corral" to save 5%, they have really good prices there and I have been using them for a while and have great service and shipping is fast

I have hawk pads and maybe its just bc i have the stock rotors....(if someone can varify this i would love it)
but they screetch like made since they are semi-metalic pads....oh well

I have slotted and drilled rotors on the front wheels with hawk pads. I haven't had any problems so far but I know some people may drive their car a lot harder than I drive mine.
