not badly..but brake pads will wear out faster with slotted rotors.

the reason being: slotted rotors help grip the brake pad better (i think they also cool faster, don't quote me). and the better a pad & rotor grip each other, the greater the friction. imo, its worth it...you'll stop faster and i'd rather replace my brake pads a little sooner rather than get into a fender bender.
