What is a good, quality slotted rotor brand?

I am planning to change to hawk pads and I figure while I'm at it I may as well replace the rotors.

What's a good, quality slotted rotor to look at?

Thanks

Anybody have any thoughts on this? $400 for all 4 wheels?

http://www.autoanything.com/brakes/61A5870A0A0.aspx

I'm a sucker for a good deal but the price almost seems too low... Obviously it's not going to be racingbrake quality but I don't track the car so I don't need anything crazy.

I've got some fairly deep gouges in the rotors (from grit under the pad I'm guessing?) so I was just thinking about replacing them when I replace the pads. Don't care too much about the bling, aside from the rust you mentioned. I've been working on getting all my brake stuff painted for sooo long I've almost given up. Just a bunch of work I'm not sure I want to get into.

If its just for street use R1, Stillen or any of the cheaper rotors would be fine. If you plan on using the car hard or tracking the car go with racing break rotors. They are not cheap but you will be amazed at how well they work and how light they are. IMHO

Stoptech... Lots of racing history with these rotors, top name brand quality. They do offer a drilled rotor also, but I am more of a fan of the slotted only.

Of course... I have not had time to post up our specials but I will say Stoptech Rotors, Hawk HPS Pads, and if you want to upgrade to the SS lines be a nice improvement

PM or email me a price (when you have a minute) on all that installed so I have an idea what I am looking at price wise.

So with the link you posted, you get all four rotors and all four sets of pads for about what it would cost to buy a high quality set of replacement brake pads.

Also, notice how they keep saying "up to 20% more stopping power." They could perform the same as stock for all we know.

I dunno, I guess I'm just a big believer in "you get what you pay for"

I'm not a fan of drilled rotors, especially cheap drilled rotors.
If you go with a drilled rotor, be sure it's a good quality or you may end up with unwanted results.

The rotors listed are just cheap rotors that they took and drilled and slotted themselves, this is not the way to do things.

I've never had any dealings with drilled or slotted rotors! Will slotted rotors have more stopping ability than an OEM rotor? Thanks!

It just dissipates heat better so you'll have better stopping power as you abuse it perfect for track users.
