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 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.

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

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.
