Default Which way do the slots go on slotted rotors?

I'm going to buy some drilled/slotted rotors soon. Which way do the slots go? I had them on my turbo grand prix. But I can't remember which way the slots went.

right now powerslot is selling off some sets of rotors that either the fronts and rears were accidentally slotted in the same direction, apparently it doesn't matter with those anyway

It's not the slots but the vanes inside the rotor that determine direction. If the the rotors you buy have curved vanes then the curve should spiral out (or curve to the rear) in the direction of rotation, if the vanes are straight, then is doesn't matter and becomes your preference.
