Should you get cross drilled rotors or slotted rotors?  This is a common question and the answer really depends on the driving conditions you deal with on a day to day basis. 


 Below we have provided a breakdown of the two designs and how they compare in regard to certain qualities other than aesthetics:







Stopping Power



 Slotted rotors are the preferred design by race car drivers when it comes to stopping power.  Slots provide brake pad bite and cooling ability of the friction surface, which results in better performance.  This system is also said to be a lot more efficient during wet weather, because its design directs water away from the friction surface, thereby reducing the risk of waterlogged brakes. 



For cross-drilled rotors, it is the pedal force in relation to its stopping po...
