    i thought about doing that too. we got a machine shop where i work. well at our west plant. i work at the east plant. both on the same road. but anyhow i thought about buying some real good discs and slotting and cross drilling them. after i cross drill them, i'll prolly use a tapered end mill bit so the counter sink is as smooth as it can get. just to make sure there isn't any sharp edge to possibly start a crack.

    warp is MAINLY caused from heat, which the holes will alleviate!

    The ones on my 94 Firebird warped shortly after I got the car. I replaced them with a good set of cross drilled and they worked great for 9 years. I'm about to do the same with my 02 Trans Am which also has them warped.
