Maybe not iluvmybonne, the link says this

For slotted rotors with straight internal cooling vanes, the direction of the slots is totally up to you and what you think looks best. In this case, there is no wrong answer.

I think that'* more for the internal vanes. That direction will cause a low pressure and suck air form the center out to cool the brakes.

Has anyone noticed that the brakes on the front of these cars are not only HUGE but extremely well built?

And I thought I never would get the retainer bracket off to remove the rotors. sheeze!
