car isn't fast enough for slotted/drilled rotors, i think it's a waste to be frank about it.

Yeah, why does it need to be faster? He didnt say anything about a big brake kit, just slotted rotors. And even if he is getting a big brake kit a lot of show cars do that. Just slotted rotors themselves look nicer, will help prevent rust, and cool the brake pads more.
