question about brakes

I was wondering are brakes drilled and slotted much better then GM gives the cobalts from the factories?If so what would be the advantages for the drilled and slotted brakes?

well it keeps the rotors cooler and last a lil longer but not enough for you to notice a difference. you'll trade it in before you need to replace them anyway. as far as performance...drilled and slotted on a econobox just doesn't make sense to me but thats just my opinion.

I like the slotted/drilled just from the standpoint of eliminating the factory solid discs that warp and the pulsation that goes with it! Regardless of pad wear, new rotors??? NEW (quality) brake pads! Been there... Done that... Bought the Brake Pads!
