Awesome. After you get them installed, tell me if they produce a lot of dust...

yeah, i got them at importrp, $120 shipped.

i chose blanks instead of slotted because i intend to do auto-x and i'm trying to stay in HS, and in HS you're not supposed to upgrade rotors, but these look stock-ish and they wont be able to tell heh...

Get yourself a big bottle of wheel cleaner... you're gonna need it. Dust storm is the only downside to those pads, Its the same set up I've got.
BTW ricers.... blanks are actually the preferred choice of high performance braking whenever they provide enough cooling capacity. No features in the surface mean more braking area and no stress concentrations, and brembo's venting system is more than adequate.

For street applications, slotted is an okay way to go and will increase stopping power and decreasing stopping distance, right?

I have Axxis Ultimates and Rotora Slotted Rotors on my CL Type-S. and damn, when i first put those things on they were so damn dusty. Not so bad now. Not PBR2 however. what is that. a new version?

haha, well i'm still running my steelies and hubcaps, i just hose them off when i was the car, they are going to be replaced with rotas soon enough though. i take it you like your brake setup? i'm going to do auto-x so i want the best i can get.

Maximum safety in time: Careful design, based on advanced calculation systems, controls the heat transmission from the braking surface to the hat section.
Advanced solutions: the use of specific cast irons, coming from the integration of foundries in the production process, allows for exclusive technical and planning know-how.
Smooth braking and longer durability: Exact tolerances guarantee maximum performance of braking system components.
Better synergy between the friction material and disc: Careful finishing guarantees a turned or ground braking surface as for Original Equipment specifications.
Reduction of vibration risks: A computerized (electronic) balancing system is used during the production process to eliminate possible unbalanced weight distribution of ventilated discs.
High efficiency and greater stopping power.
Pillar Venting allows more even cooling of the rotor which eliminates "hot spots" on the braking surface.

on edit: they are OEM size though. also, not noted about, i believe they are designed to prevent the formation of a gas layer between the rotor and brake pad sometimes found on other setups.

No. They increase your stopping distance because there's less area for the pad to grab. Someone on here tested this about a year ago. Slotted rotors took 2 feet longer to stop from 60 than blanks (thats A LOT). You wanna do it, I don't care, no one's stopping you, but they're not of much use.

Brembo has their own material composition that will withstand much higher temperatures for prolonged periods of time vs. stock, and Brembo's internal venting system is far better than stock, so they cool more effeciently.

The only thing I can't stand is the dust. Its to the point of rediculous, but for the price, there had to be some fault, if its dust, I can't complain too much, because they bite like crazy hell.

ya cross drill sucks unless u are tracking and brake hard all the time. Also you will be replacing drilled alot more due to less structural stability. sloted is best for street.

if the brake pads have a lot of dust, then does that mean the pads will wear out faster? just wondering.

So for just street you would want slotted and not cross-drilled or what? Just a lttle confused about the whole rotor thing

If this is the case, how come a lot of the expensive benzes all have slotted? I would assume they know what works best?

probably mostly for looks...

it is a fact that drilled and slotted rotors increase the stopping distance, they don't have as much contact surface with the brake pad as a blank does. the idea behind slotted rotors is that they will cool better at the expense of stopping distance. most road-race cars (like speed channel world-challenge) use blank rotors and i'm certain they know what they're doing for performance.

on a side note, i was thinking about drilled rotors. being that the holes are drilled to allow the rotor to cool better by having more surface area exposed to cool, wouldn't the rotor heat up faster as well since the mass of the rotor is less too? less metal heats faster.

I have that same exact setup sitting in my room right now. I tried taking the bolts off by hand and couldn't budge them, so I'm waiting to use my dads airtools next time I visit. I bought my setup from importrp for around $120 shipped also, very good service and super quick shipping.
