Anyone have any direct links to these products?  If not, how about a phone number and part number...

I'm still not sure about cross-drilled rotors though... I'm thinking just a nice pair of slotted ones...

Realistically, slotted/cross drilled rotors aren't a very good improvement when price is factored in. A good set of stock rotors with some performance pads (Performance Friction pads are EXCELLENT) are a better $$ investement than rotors alone.......I'm not stoping anyone from getting them, I'm just pointing this out.........of course, the rotors AND pads would work quite well too.......

BTW......crossdrilled rotors DO tend to crack a lot under heavy use.....something to remember.

Now I agree that slotted & cross drilled look very nice but......... I will second that on the cross drilled rotors cracking.
There was a good write-up in Grass Roots on how the new pads do not need slots or cross drilling for venting the gas.

One thing that will help improve you brake pad/rotor life is cryogenic treating. FFWD Cryo Link

You can pick up replacement rotors for around $15. I would go thru 2 set in a year due to cracking. Now I do not think 98% of you will go thru rotors that quickly.
But if you figure $60 for the year (at the worst), compared to $100 for the same thing.

Hey guys, I got a set of X-drilled and slotted rotors and I must say I'm very pleased with those. Mantapart had a set for my Beretta. I know there's a lotta comment on them but I never had any problems with Tim and Mantapart. I live in Europe so I always have slow deliverytimes...  :D

And here's the picture of the set complete with carbonmetallic brake pads...



:o Got ya drooling don't I ?  :D

So they are basically saying that you should focus on Pads instead of rotors?
