I would go with slotted. Thats the one with the slashes right, not the drilled lookin holes?

The will both perform the same but I think the slashes look cooler than the holes.

for autox? if so, go slotted. the slots scrape off new layers of brake pad as the rotor rotates which causes you to stop faster. CID498 told me after we autoxed smile

Slotted, has more surface area for braking and also has a higher tolerence then drilled.

Drilling takes away too much rotor and has more of a chance of cracking under braking.

This is just if you really are pushing your brakes to the limit all the time such as AutoXing. grin

cross-drilled will run cooler because your removing more rotor material so more air can pass around and through them.

how much cooler? not an incredible difference.

If your just goin for looks go with drilled only (you'll get longer pad life) if your goin for performance get drilled and slotted Dat's wut I got's.
