thinking about getting...
rotora slotted rotors + their ultimate brake pads.. total from rotora.com is $275 shipped. i'd be doing it for the look of the rotor + the extended life of the pad. opinions?

They look good. I have all four rotora slotted rotors with TRD brake pads. To be honest I did not notice any difference in braking; But like I said, they sure look good.

you can't go wrong w/slotted rotors. i tried looking to see how the celicas rotors are stock..but i couldnt find any info.

anyone know if the stock rotors are aleady slotted? this may be why the post above me didnt notice any difference. not sure.

rotoras are not built for racing.

And the slotted rotors will cut down on the life of your pads by about 40%

If you are just doing it for the looks, it'll be sweet, but if you are serious about performance, the rotoras are not a worthy investment. thumbsup
