Default ok so I have been looking at these for some time...

I really like the look of the "Roto-Disk" brakes. I think that is what they are called. I was wondering if any have used them. As I tend to want to race the classic and show the MINI I like them for purely aesthetic reasons so I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them.

Hm, not sure what you're referring to.

Slotted?

None of the above, they look like the pattern of a buzz saw.

The pattern on the slots isn't really as important as the hype may lead you to believe. If they're asking for more money for a specific slotting pattern, unless the look of them is important to you, don't bother!

Also, unless you wanna replace rotors after every track day, don't buy cross-drilled rotors. They have a tendency to crack around the drill holes. They're excellent for cooling, but only if you can afford to replace them when they crack.

Has anyone seen the ones I was talking about?

Hell they will seldom get pushed too hard as I prefer to race my classic, but they are sure to catch some looks at shows.

Well if they perform as well as the plain ones I will get more marks and attention at a car show. They SAY that it helps in cooling though....
