Only 17.5k :eek: Good find! What kind of drilled/slotted rotors did you get? I have some Brembo's on my Talon that are drilled/slotted. For some reason they don't seem to help it stop any faster - got new ceramic brake pads too. Oh well, they still look sexy through my rims:cooL:

They're the AC Delcos. You probably won't notice a difference going to drilled and slotted rotors unless you're really hard on the brakes. AFIK, the only time they help is by dissapating heat more rapidly. I bought them mainly for the looks and I needed new rotors anyway. If you want more stopping power, you need to do an entire brake upgrade.

stopping power is more a function of size of rotor (diameter) than pieces within.

actually stopping power is determined by the system as a whole, but tires have a huge impact in stopping power, if your tires don't grip, then you are just skidding :)

and good pads are also important.

I'm NOT a fan of x-drilled, they crack a lot easier than non cross drilled requiring more frequent inspection and replacement for little to no gain, slotted is the better choice there.

but a nice ride all the same.
