I'm asking how hard they are to install because I'm not a great mechanic and the guy that will do them for me said he might not be able to install the drilled ones you guys are recomending.
Ty from domestic performance might have to step in and verify.... First the RSM rotors that some of the people here are using are not drilled.... We have found that drilled rotors are really best on a track like circuit not for everyday driving... So the rotors that Ty sells are slotted and not drilled.... They are also hardened slugs that give better overall performance... And that helps out in the warp department by doing away with the problems that we have with warping rotors... We have several people here on this site running these rotors and love them... I will be next on that list when my money says yes.... And the rotors are a direct fit replacement of our rotors.... Most people are using ceramic pads with these rotors... So far I have heard nothing but good...
Woops! Yeah I forgot the word I was looking for (slotted), so I typed drilled even though I knew I would get some flak for the incorrect word. I also have heard bad things bout crossed drilled rotors used on the road.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm gonna try to get my parents to pay for the rotors and pads. How long you think shippin will be?

Ty should be able to do a week on those. Not bad, considering the weight.
