Default Brake Rotors

I see "drilled & slotted" brake rotors for sale on ebay, curious as to what drilled & slotted does for the rotor, operate cooler?

Found the answer to my question, slotted for better cooling.

Not exactly right![:I] Slotted are better for gassing problems and therefore you get a better grip on the rotors. Drilled are used for gassing and heat problems. For strictly street use with stock rotor size you probably dont need either. Slotted looks kewl though Drilled have been know to cause stress cracks between the holes if not cast into the rotor. Kinda like pay your money make your choice[^] If you take a head count or vote more will vote for slotted over or drilled and drilled and slotted!!

SteelBlueGT, thanks for the reply, I think I will stick with the stock rotors and try and ceramic pads when the time comes.

I hope that ceramic pads are available by that time. They are not currently available for the GT, only for the N/A PT.

I will probably get another 8 or 9 months out of the originals before I need to change them, hopefully by then ceramic will be available.
