Default Brake rotors

I don't post as much i read and look at everyones nice cars. I will eventually upgrade my rocketship to something more improved.

Which are better and why, Slotted or Drilled?

I have 2000 SSEi the Drk Bronze colord one.

This has been knocked around for a while here but the consesus is the slotted rotors will deliver long life and improved braking.
Drilled rotors can heat up with our heavy cars and cause small fractures around the drilled holes. With that said new techniques in maching have improved the drilled rotors but there are not enough miles out there to be totally sold.

Thanks for the insight, do you know anything about Angel eyes? I thought they looked pretty cool, mine keep dirting up way to quickly.
