Re: StopTech true BIG Brake Kit for 400$ (DIY)
Cross drilled and slotted rotors are more about heat dissipation and less about style. They definitely have their place in the world, particularly in the cities where you have a lot more stop and go traffic. Larger brakes are more about surface area contact for more friction with less heat. Also, if you are going to use a carbon fiber formula in your brake pad setup, such as with the Power Stop and other aftermarket brands, it's a good idea to upgrade to DOT4 brake fluid which is glycol based, and deals with heat and interior moisture better than DOT3 fluid. I don't recommend carbon fiber brake pads unless it is a dedicated high performance application.
