ABSTRACT
The article discusses slotted and/or cross-drilled high performance brake rotors. Topics discussed include installation of larger rotors to increase brake cooling capacity such as caliper repositioning and/or using large calipers, slotted rotors used by some racers with less risk of cracking while offering same pad venting benefits as holes, and use of cross-drilling rotors with 30-40 small holes to increase airflow and cooling. It notes the need for cross-drilling rotors to be done properly.
