Everything I have read on racing says cross drilling is no good. Then, I once got a closeup shot of the 2002 front Ferrari caliper at the Monaco GP. Granted, it's not the usual material, but nevertheless it was not crossdrilled. Why bother?crashsti said:i was under the impression that you can cross drill stock rotors but there is a certain way to do it to avoid the cracking we have all been talking about. i have'nt done any time at the track. don't even know where to find one. i would like to though. i also think that braking and handling should come before engine mods. i've seen too many musclecars with huge motors that needed a airport runway to slowdown from 60 miles an hour. its not just a personal preferance its a safety issue.
was it slotted? for some reason, i thought they were slotted. i don't have any pics tho'.kg said:...closeup shot of the 2002 front Ferrari caliper at the Monaco GP. Granted, it's not the usual material, but nevertheless it was not crossdrilled. Why bother?
crossdrilling and slots facilitate cooling, so i would think it would improve any cars braking by reducing fade. definately not something you need for the regular driving, but it must make a difference on the track.crashsti said:would buying crossdrilled and slotted rotors improve braking on the already stellar stopping STi?
