they're pretty pointless in a regular street car.Is there anyone using drilled and slot brake rotor? some ppl said those brake rotor is easy to be cracked.... so, which brand would be the best? Thanks.
Cross drilled and slotted rotors are serviceable, you just have to take extra care and make sure you use sharp bits when you put them on a brake lathe. As far as going through pads faster, I have over 60k on my first set of pads and have been using cross drilled and slotted rotors since the first month and still have plenty of pad left.I would suggest OEM style rotors. They are more then sufficient, will last longer and you can re surface them. If your cross drilled/slotted rotors ware they are trash and not serviceable, not to mention you will go threw pads faster.
Honda knows what they are doing.
Thanks scorsone, they did look like awesome brakes. If it wasn't such a big price difference I would have gone with EBC. I feel confident with Power Stop because another Element owner has had them on his E for over a year now and they've been great.I have been running the EBC drilled/slotted rotor set front and rear with the Yellow Stuff pads. I was doing a lot of towing and still do from time to time. I LOVE THESE BRAKES!!! There is no fade and no warping. They are a very consistent and reliable set up.
I plan on upgrading my wife's Pilot with these when her brakes run out.
