    DDSRT Slotted & Cross Drilled Rotors Opinions

    Has anyone has replaced their factory DDSRT rotors with slotted/cross drilled ones? Brembo doesn't currently make any replacements according to their product catalog. There are MANY options out there but I just can't decide. Curious to know your opinions. Thx.

    I got the high performance option which is 2 piece cross drilled. Not sure if that could be put on afterwards. It’s powerful af

    I always thought them to be to impractical for daily drivers, yet essential on an oval because they're more expensive, wear out faster, and are sometimes noisier than OEM, yet, stay much cooler during heavy use.. Maybe if you lived in a mountainous area, they would be better than OEM?

    Mine are not slotted or drilled. Out here in Arizona, it gets hot as you all know. I'm considering the temperature benefit more than any other reason. Appreciate the feedback.

    '18 DSRT | '97 3000GT VR4
    I've used R1 concepts rotors w/ EBC Yellow pads on my 3000GT VR4 for years(even when tracking) and never had a problem. I just picked up a set of the R1 E-line for the DDSRT with some EBC Green's for when my brakes are ready to change soon. I'm pretty anal and never turn rotors. Since I replace with new pads when the brakes are due, I've never experience rotor cracking. R1s product has never failed me and the price is reasonable enough to change with every brake job. R1 offers a a higher grade metal line called GEOMAT if you want a an upgrade. Keep in mind that Slotted/drilled rotors shouldn't be turned and causes a structural softness. The turned rotors are more prone to cracking under high heat.

    Many rotor manufacturers are the same but sell to different brands. I personally don't think there is a fundamental difference from Brembo rotors that come stock vs another quality brand that uses the same metal blend for half the price. You do get difference of performance if you go with a value line that gives thinner rotors and of a lesser quality metal.
