Your brakes worked better.
So it must have been the slots and holes.

Sorry, inside front but it's not just me right, that pad wasn't making contact with the entire rotor on the inside? Doesn't that mean their is/was a problem with how the pad is in there. Won't it happen again?
That issue was most likely from the poor iron used in those rotors. Also not zinc plated as there was tons of pieces of rust in my garage floor daily form them.

This forum is just full of ass-holes...
No, the forum is filled with people willing to discuss pros and cons of products. You're just choosing to flip the bird instead of considering that maybe everything is a compromise in some way and that your compromise is one not many of us will make willingly.

The people on here stating that drilled and slotted rotors are not good or not as good as regular rotors is just their opinion... My opinion of them having used them dozens of times and having noticed better braking on all of them is mine.

I have read positive and negative reviews on this and it is what I choose to use and will continue until I feel otherwise.

Classic case of someone conflating opinion with measurable fact. You don’t like something that is observable, measurable, repeatable, and documented?

Prove to me that they're not as good... Until then I will keep using and installing them on people's vehicles. I've never had a complaint or a problem using them.

I don't think he realizes who that is. It's easy to complain about a bunch of "opinions" when you don't realize who's in the room. That or they're just a troll.

Your opinion is just one... I've read dozens and dozens of others and find that they are better than standard rotors.
