drilled and slotted brake rotor?

What is the best package for drilled and slotted brake rotor and pads that you have? For the lowest price of course

I don’t like that they squeak witch I changed to a cheaper pad that was softer that made that go away.. I feel that the holes in the rotors are too big because they make noise everything you hit the brake but I can deal with the noise... It’s a noise that no one notices till I point it out and I’ve had drilled and slotted rotors on every car I’ve ever owned and these are the only ones to do this...

I'm running front Stillens courtesy of Kolak. Great price, great brakes, great service from Nick.

Definately not the cheapest, but I swear by my EBC slotted/dimpled rotors. I'm extremely hard on my brakes and the EBC are the only ones I've found that put up with the abuse. (Never had Stillens to compare though). I didn't like the EBC Green Stuff pads though and ended up switching to Raybestas Performance Ceramic pads.

Drilled rotors are a joke, they are well outdated to today's standards

How did you come to this conclusion?

How do you figure that? Drilled/slotted rotors are a great performance upgrade because they allow the excess gases and brake dust to escape under hard stops instead of it getting trapped between the pads and rotors which means a better grip on the rotor

Drilled rotors came about in drag racing to save weight,braking performance was not as important.The street scene adopted the look because it "looks cool" and that is all it does,"looks cool".Drilled rotors actually decrease brakes ability to cool as some of the material that is required to transfer the heat is removed.Solid vented blanks are all that is required,slotting can be good if racing but not needed for the street as your brakes will never see track temps and the slots just help keep the pads clean.Outgassing is a thing of the past with todays brake pads,20-30 years ago it was a concern but not today.It's simple,less metal equals less ability to cool and easier to warp/crack.

Wow. That's a pretty bold claim. I think a lot of people are going to disagree with that...

My experience with the WK braking system indicates that properly drilled rotors improve braking performance. Also, The Society of Automotive Engineers did a study back a few years ago that showed that properly drilled rotors increased cooling and reduced braking distances as compared to plain rotors. The study was done on street driven vehicles.

dude please tell that to the engineers that get paid 6 figures a year at Mercedes Benz because drilled rotors come stock on the AMG's...

I have around 100,000 miles on my Stillens, they are still stopping me like they did when they were new!
