Default Napa Premium Slotted Rotors?

Guess what? They're cross-drilled too.

They don't sell slotted only, and they're WAY spendy. $95 each!


I think I'll go with PowerSlot (blanks come from Brembo, then PS slots them). These are only $85 each with free shipping.

I had Powerslots on my last car (Focus ZX3). They were awesome, I kept warping rotors because I thought for a brief period that I was a rally cross racer. After I warped 3 sets, I got the Power Slots and sold the car with the set installed. They are a cool looking silver color, and they stay that way. I used "Green Stuff" brake pads on them, I forget the manufacturer, but I had white 18s that never saw dust from those pads. The upgraded stopping power was nice too.

I have RSM'* slotted hardened rotors with ceramics now. No dust whatsoever. They've warped for the second time, though.

If you look closely at the two, the RSM'* and Powerslots are almost identical in every way. I know RSM uses GM blanks, and Powerslot uses Brembo.

Sure, they sell Powerslot, but WAY more than internet sources with free shipping. I was at NAPA at lunch and found that out.
