That's awsome glen........I think the rotors don't matter too much, but for point of referance, mine are oppisite...I just followed the directions on placement provided by Brembo when I got my rotors......

I looked at some past photos of my car when I had powerslots and they are going the same way as yours are. As the others mentioned I do not think the direction is a very big deal.
Your pics of the off road fun made me think about one of my more artistic moments .

Yeah, they're not directionally vaned internally, so I don't think it makes much of a difference.

Damn, Randy! Those are some ancient pictures of your ride! He's all growns up now!

Yeah, no one makes a caliper kit that I know of, but you can definitely upsize the rotor, which is the primary purpose of a BBK anyway.

Here's one from Ireland Engineering:

Yup, not a directional rotor. That iDiaz guy is on top of these things.

So no real left or right and the direction of the slot is not a concern. Pad finds the edge and that is what matters. If it bothers you, it is easy to swap them over.

Glen, how much does Steve charge for the Power Slots?

The dealer told me today that I need to rears at least, and probably new fronts. I didn't want the dealer-installed $1200 brake job, so I told them not to do anything. Anyway... That's my story about why I'm asking... haha...

The slots simply provide an area for gases to escape when the brakes are under load and doing some of that weird chemical/metal voodoo stuff... Thus the direction really doesn't matter.

You can find a bit more technical stuff HERE

i cant remember exactly.... something in the neighborhood of 300 with new pads all the way around. *only front rotors were replaced

btw- i likes a lot... i used to glaze my stock rotors a little and the squeek would go away after about a hundred miles. hasnt happened yet on the pslots... not sure if it's the slots or more braking/driving experience. i knw for a fact i used to get on the brakes too hard and early at events... not so much anymore
