if only this car had the power so it could utilize drilled/slotted rotors. They look cool though.

I know that going down hills our cars could take advantage of the drilled rotors

Drilled rotors will not do anything to improve braking performance. They are for looks, plain and simple. Drilled rotors are also more prone to cracking than non-drilled rotors. That’s not to be confused with auto manufacturers that offer rotors with cast holes on their performance cars, which is a completely difference process than these companies offering "cross drilled" rotors. Slotted rotors are fine and look good, but they don't really offer any other benefit over blank rotors with modern brake pads.

If you want to buy cross drilled rotors for looks, do so by all means. I just don’t want anyone to be duped into thinking they will improve performance. Notice that the company “Chromebrakes” makes no claims about improving braking performance by adding just these rotors.

The characteristics of a rotor that will improve performance are thickness (strength), vanes (venting/cooling), size (brake pad surface area, cooling), weight, material type, etc. The two biggest things you could do to improve braking on our cars are brake pads (better bite, less fade) and better brake fluid (stays cooler, less fade), and possibly stainless steel brake lines.

For those that want to learn more about drilled/slotted rotors, cracking, & cast holes, you can find info here:

Thanks for pointing those out.

I was advocating for one...better brake fluid (it is a form of modification), but most in this thread I started take it for granted (it is our car's brakes, after all).
