Default Power Slots and Cryo?

I need new brakes soon, so I've been doing some research...

Some of you may have seen this before, but I didn't realize Power Slot offers their rotors with this "Cryo" treatment now...

From Power Slot's website:

Quote:
When you need something tougher than a Power Slot rotor, but you’re not quite ready for a big brake kit, try our new Power Slot Cryo rotors. We’ve teamed up with Frozen Rotors to offer cryogenic treatment on our Power Slot rotor line.

Deep cryogenic treatment is a one-time process that permanently improves the performance and service life of metals from brake rotors and engine parts, to machine tools and gear sets. Using a proprietary computer-controlled process, the metal is cooled gradually to -300°F and then slowly returned to room temperature and heat-cycled as the final step. Although not apparent to the naked eye, the improvements to the rotor are significant. The cryogenic treatment process redistributes residual stress in the rotor giving it an extra level of protection against warping.

Any new Power Slot slotted brake rotor can be cryogenically treated
prior to shipment. Allow 5-10 business days for processing. For more
information, contact your local Power Slot dealer or distributor.
I personally think I would be fine with just the regular Power Slots, but what are your thoughts on this treatment?

Tempering the rotors certainly won't hurt.

Then again, I've never hosed a set on the street. So, if you're primarily a street carver you should be able to save the coin for other goodies...

im pimping the powerslots up front on stock fluid/lines, w/ the ebc greenies. a little mushy midway/end of second track sessions but due to stock fluid and lines... if it were me, i'd save on the cryo since the powerslots have been holding up very well on the greenies. now if i were to switch to some ceramics or something harder in compound then i'd go for the cryo treatment... but that's just me

Cool, thanks for the input dudes... I hadn't planned on doing the cryo... I just don't think it would benefit me at all.

Glen, are you running the stock rotors in the back?

yes sirree... i see no need to change them at the moment...
what i'd really like to do is have steve machine me some of his "steve special's" (the big rotors w/ the stock calipers) to 11.75 or 11.5 to fit/fill the 16's. 12.5 is too big my rims.
