Getting ready to do my brakes. I've done a lot of looking here and have heard mention of rotopros but can't fine a thing about them on the web. Any suggestions on cross drilled rotors and pads.

I would suggest Slotted only rotors... not slotted AND drilled..

I know its not prone to high heat but being drilled takes away from surface area and slotted helps with scavenging the gases away from the rotor..



and yes I know you see drilled and slotted rotors come from the factory on the ZR1, Enzo, Various Porsches and other supercars...

but their rotors are 15 inches and up..

Friend of mine has a new Corvette ZO6 and the rotors are only Drilled.. Just tell Woody what you want, he will do it all....

Yeah, I was looking for cross drilled only. I've read that the purpose of the slotted is to shave the glazing from the pads. But this isn't a race car and I'm not building up enough heat to be glazing my pads.

Oh and what does everyone suggest for pads? I see most are going with ceramics.

Ceramics are the factory issue and the best way to go. Talk to Woody and he will do it right :thumbsup:

Breaks are done!

justblazin and woody get all the thanks. These rotors are sweet! I ended up going w/ the ones finished in black and cross drilled only. They look real good on the TB. Now just need to paint the calipers.
