Looking for rotors

What’s a good brand for rotors, I do run 1/8 and 1/4 a bunch. Do I need drilled and slotted or just slotted?

Plain face rotors are my preference, but if you never see a road course, slotted and cross drilled will be a touch lighter.

I also greatly prefer full faced rotors, I've seen surface cracking near the holes and slots when abused. Drilled and slotted offer no benefit other than weight savings from my experience.

For drag racing the cheapest brakes are more than sufficient. There is not enough thermal load to overheat even crappy pads. I seem to be enjoying stock pads and rotors, I may go with generic or aftermarket (ie cheap) rotors and stock pads later depending on price.

Generally speaking drilled rotors are a thing of the past as a way to relieve gassing from pad material. Modern day pad compositions have this issue addressed in reputable brake pad companies.
