    What do u mean by "custom drilled and slotted" ? If the drill wasn't available when they manufacturer the rotor, then u better be careful. Very easy to crack. Slot is still alright but drill will weaken the structure big time! Your pad also wear out super fast with drilled and slotted rotor. And if the drill and slot not done well, u will feel vibration when braking.

    This company drills and slots rotors to your specifications. Unless the car is being tracked hard, there really isn't enough stress generated on the street to crack properly drilled rotors. This company specializes in brakes and has been providing brake kits for race teams for years so I think they know just a little bit more about brakes and what they're doing than you or I.
