Slotted and drilled rotors
Got a great deal on these slotted and drilled rotors for my v-dub. While they are expected to wear on the friction surface evsntuslly , they're still shiny and look amazing on the car.

The break expert I talked to confirmed that slotted and drilled rotors are better for a number of reasons. Says the local police insist on them. There is much debate about their usefulness and I was concerned that I had made a poor choice and was glad to hear this.

Car stops wonderfully, especially in wet weather. A great product for do-it-yourselfers on a limited budget.
