Carpartkings sells Powerslot rotors for $154 a pair! Cryo treatment is $40 more. So slotted rotors are less durable than blanks?

They are charging only $77 for each Powerslot rotor and $97 for each Powerslot cryo treated rotor. Meaning a set of cryo treated Powerslots are less than $200. Seems like a good price.

First, I wouldn't mess with drilled rotors. There is really no advantage, are basically for looks and can possibly weaken the rotors. They are probably both equally good, but the Powerslots have been tested positively by many forum members.

I would not really see they are better or worse. They are a different design with an advantage and a disdvantage compared to the solid disc.
