Brake Rotors

Cross drilled vs. slotted ,which type of rotor is better?
Your driving habits are the most important factor in the choice between cross-drilled vs. slotted. For a customer who likes the appearance of cross-drilled and is not abusive on the brakes or seldom carries heavy loads or tows, Pro Stop drilled can fulfill your needs, recommends that hawk Performance hps brake pads be used with pro stop drilled rotors.

Slotted Rotors
Slotted Rotors Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or "outgas." As the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surfaces and inhibits performance. Here's where Power Slot's slotted brake rotors make a big difference. Power Slot's exclusive Vac-U-Slots are machined into the rotor and help evacuate gasses and dust, shed heat, and keep the brake pad surface clean. And in wet, raining conditions, our Vac-U-Slot helps push water off the braking surface for better stopping power. The Vac-U-Slot also serves as a visual wear indicator. The slot is machined to the rotor’s minimum thickness where it crosses the outside edge. If you cannot see the slot along the outside edge, the rotor has worn down to its discard depth. A combination of Hawk® high performance brake pads and Power Slot
slotted rotors will deliver superior, reliable braking for virtually all automotive, truck and SUV applications, even under hard driving and severe duty conditions. But for our most demanding customers such as police pursuit vehicles and club racers, we also suggest Power Slot Cryo rotors.
