Default RSM vs Powerslot rotors first impression

RSM'* warped, had them turned, warped 3 months later. Keep in mind they stop like MAD, especially in the rain, and didn't warp for 6 months, despite my aggressive driving and braking.

Powerslots are still in the box, but the slots aren't nearly as deep. Interesting, since the RSM'* with deeper slots tend to build up material in the slots. Not sure how this will play out long-term.

I have SP Performance rotors in my car; they both drilled and slotted too. Have not experienced any problems for over a year. Also, I had them cryonegically frozen, including the pads, new rear drums and shoes.

For their different rotors, check out the following site:

What kind of pads did you use? I was thinking about powerslots but certainly don't want them if they can warp in a year. I got a full year out of my stock rotors and ceramic pads last time.
