Northwest Members - Choosing front rotors... drilled, slotted or plain?

What is the benefit of slotted vs drilled and which would be best for daily driving? Anyone have any recommendations?

i had drilled and slotted on my ta, got them from i rotors pretty good set liked them a lot! I dont think there is a huge difference between them

Slots or plain are best ;)

I got drilled and slotted from irotors...hate 'em. Started warping within a few hundred miles of normal driving, none at the track at all. Been to the track a bunch since then, can't feel the pulsating with the bias plies on, lol! That's the next thing on my agenda tho...new rotors...

solid or slotted. drilled is for show only. Slotted are arguably slightly better on the track, but they also wear out your pads quicker. For a daily driver I'd stick with solids.

I'd also recommend solids... drilled look pretty, but that's it.

again solids or slotted. the cross drilled rotors have been known to develop stress fractures/cracks. i had stoptech rotors on my old mustang and loved them, cheap too.

I have been running the Eradi-Speed corss-drilled & slotted rotors for a couple years with no warping or cracking issues. But my car is not a daily driver. I mostly got them for car shows, but I also noticed much improved stopping power at the track (rolling thru the traps at 130+ without stock brakes is scary!) They do seem to wear out the (Hawk) pads faster tho.....

remember that you are giving up contact area if you go with slotted and/or drilled rotors. unless you have heat issues you cannot address otherwise, I'd say go with "plain"

Yeah, I currently have drilled and slotted on the front and I just noticed last week tiny stress fractures along the drill lines, that's no good! I'll probably go with plain then for now, since it won't be seeing the track anymore this years, thank you all for the advice. :D
