Which is better, slotted or drilled rotors?
StopTech provides rotors slotted, drilled or plain. For most performance applications slotted is the preferred choice. Slotting helps wipe away debris from between the pad and rotor as well as increasing the "bite" characteristics of the pad. A drilled rotor provides the same type of benefit, but is more susceptible to cracking under severe usage. Many customers prefer the look of a drilled rotor and for street and occasional light duty track use they will work fine. For more severe applications, we recommend slotted rotors.
I still want you to explain how a solid rotor will let gasses go straight through metal. And if they do, they've failed at it for me because I made them fade a few times which sucks.

It's not a great pic, but on the front page of my website there is a photo of some cheap slotted rotors with a huge crack in them. I have a full sized version of it anyone would like to see it up close (better, I can send it to anyone who can host it, my site isn't setup for that). www.stranoparts.com
Now, I don't know about you guys, but big cracks are NOT what I prefer to see on my brakes.....
You most definitely get what you pay for and brakes are not be best place to discover that.Sam Strano
