Too lazy to search...so Palm will have to deal with it for now.


I'm here to ask ya a serious question of a serious matter...what the hell are the pro's and con's of different types of brakes?

I'd like it if anybody that has aftermarket rotors told me their experiences with things like: powerslotted, drilled, slotted and drilled, brands, and what not.

Thanks folks

Ceranic pads produce less less dust aswell drilled slotted rotor allow for cooler rotor temps and les wear. on the brake pads

drilling actually reduces your braking ability and does next to nothing for cooling.

slotted is good, keeps the dust away from building up on the pads.

vaned rotors are the best thing you could do.

Solid rotors are crap.
Ceramic rotors are good for daily driving produce less dust and have long life.
Slotted rotors are good for performance due to allowing water and dust to not stay on rotor and cool quicker.
Drilled/slotted are for only high performance apps they are for constant high speed braking like in RACE CARS, not COBALTS.

Best bet for upgrading brakes are slotted with ceramic pads. Cobalts dont make anything close to needed power to use drilled and they have chance of cracking when used this way.

CERAMIC ROTORS?!?!? You have any idea how much those cost?!?!?

I hope you meant ceramic pads...

this is a vaned rotor:
