I bit the bullet and bought a set of cross drilled and slotted rotors on ebay a few weeks ago. They finally arrived today. I snapped a few pics.

Front...




Rear...




Here's a link from ebay incase anyone's interested: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8036837778

I also dropped off my new calipers at Keith's (Heavyevy) house today for some red powdercoating :cool:

I also bought ATE Super Blue racing brake fluid, new front pads, new rear pads, new outer/inner bearings, now I just have to wait for Earl's brake lines to come in from the GP and pick up a set of rear calipers. This should be serious stopping machine :D

Nice!!! Why not powder coat the hubs on the rotors. Would make them look extra sweet. You will like it trust me.

Lenny you'll have those things cracked in no time.

Remember those things look directional.

Last time I checked you don't want any paint or pc on the mounting surface for the wheel

The price certainly can't be beat - please keep us updated on the longevity of these rotors.

Oh well. I did a lot of research and for $139 for all 4 rotors I had to experiment for my self.

I'll keep you guys posted on how these suckers hold up

I hear alot about cross drilled rotors cracking but has anybody in the B-Body community actually had this happen to them? I have cross drilled rotor and have had them on for about 4yrs. now and I don't have any cracks. I think you will get warpage before you crack them, which I believe I have on mine anyway. If I were to do it again I would just get the slotted rotors.

Yes, the rotors are cracking on some people. Are these detrimental cracks? I argue not, so long as they are not extending out to the edge of the rotor.

well as even Todd has mentioned it's quite hard to actually warp a rotor on a street car. More or less people are mistaking it for other problems.

Very nice. I just got a set too, but I got mine from rotorpros. They're slotted with black hubs. They were $210 shipped.
