Late to the party, sorry. In regards to slotted or drilled rotors: The function of a rotor is basically to act as a heat sink. When you remove material from a rotor (i.e. slots or holes) you limit the ability of a rotor to dissipate heat. Some do tout the benefits of slotted rotors cleaning the pads or assisting when a pad out-gasses. However, in my opinion, less is not more when it comes to braking. That being said....they look awesome :-)

I never heard of a shorter life from Tarox owners, they even are known for increased reliability.
Keep in mind all Tarox are heat treated.

New GTI rotors are 25 mm in thickness, replace them when they are 23 mm or when warped.
Of course if you track I'd replace them earlier.

hey,

but if its slotted, wouldnt there be more surface area? curve vs flat...
not trying to say ur wrong, just curious.

also do slotted rotors give more braking power?

Get Ate Premium discs or stock replacements.


Slotted rotors have two downsides only:

- some slight humming when braking at higher speeds
- cost

At the same time these are the advantages:

- quicker bite when wet
- slightly more overall bite
- degassing the pad when hot
- cleaning the pad when braking long and hard


# 1 is advantagous for a DD and of course the rest is important
if you track.

I'd recommend stock replacements for DDing to avoid noises.
Slotted rotors for the track.

Crossdrilled ?? Posers only.

OP, unless you track the shit out of your car, you'll be FINE with OEM rotors.

With almost 40k on my OEM setup, and drive the shit out of my car on the street, ZERO COMPLAINTS.

That's strange, mate.

Had and have humming with ALL kinds of slotted rotors (AP, Ate, Brembo, Tarox)
and all my friends with them notice the same.
