Drilled Rotors

I just got my new rotors for the Chalon done. Bought them from another Pelican member for $125.00 and paid $150.00 for the cross dilling. Plus the $46.00 for shipping of the rotors, brings the grand total to $321.00 for cross drilled brake rortors. Wow, that is more than I thought it would be. They say "a fast car is only as good as it's brakes." I hope this is worth it?

I dont know if it is.. I think vented front and rear would be good enough.. (thats what I have). But hey, they look really cool!!

Im sure it would help that one time going down the mountain and your always on your brakes.. Could save your life!! I dont know..

Let me know how they are!

Hummm, I always thought the "drilled rotors" on POrsches were actually cast that way so they would not crack from high heat. I agree that the venting in the middle should be sufficient to cool and if more is needed some gas slots will help. Sure are pretty though.

Well if I continue to drive the way I normally do on twisty roads, I dont use the brakes so these should last a long long time.
