Dimpled, slotted or drilled rotors simply allow the rotor more effective cooling. The indentations on the rotor surface allow more air to flow between the rotor & brake pad surface. This also allows for less chance of brake fade with the proper brake pads in place.

I also have a set of rotors (different brand) that are slotted/dimpled in use with a set of the Cool Carbon brake pads. The rotors were installed before the pads and the stopping performance with the rotors in place was noticably better than OEM.

With the Cool Carbon pads installed the stopping performance between this setup & OEM is night and day.
I agree with this man. Save me alot of typing. hehe

Stoptech Rotors should be out soon if not already

Zeckhausen has the Stoptechs long time ago...but I would just get the ones that Mr.5 has, which is basically the same thing for alot less and alot more customization.

Cquence Rotor are C-Tek Blanks that are modified with different designs and that are Zinc Coated. CHP Rotors are Stoptech/PowerSlot Rotors that have E-coating on them. I am working with my Supplier to produce the same results soon
