So far the cheapest slotted brake rotors I can find are 99.99 each from rx-7parts.com. Does anybody know of a cheaper place or is that as good as it gets?

I have an extra set of front stock rotors that were just cut and are in good condition. PM me if you want these.

Are you only interested in slotted rotors? Pep Boys only charges about $50-60 for stock rotors.

I might go with stock since I can't really find any body who has used slotted that has an opinion about them. I just know I don't want cross drilled cause they are prone to cracking and offer 8-10% less surface area than slotted.

The ones in the store are slotted dude for $99.99.



They are PowerSlots, I have not used them on my RX-7 however a put a set on my Dad's truck and it was like driving a whole new vehicle, they made a HUGE difference, but the Ford's stock set up is pathetic. We've had nothing but problems with his breaks until we went with the PowerSlot rotors and the Hawk pads.



I've also sold several sets and had great feedback. I hope to get the slotted and drilled in stock soon, but so far they just backorder them.

for the difference in the price, just go for the good rotors.



Its not like you will need to buy them again for a while, shouldnt

go cheap when it comes to certain things.



You will always be kicking yourself in the *** for not spending the

couple of extra dollars and getting the better hardware.
