Rotors: Analysis of Cross-drilled vs. Slotted

Of course...we just need to figure out how to convert the porsche ceramic rotors to fit on a subee...

You are right about the cryo rotors. I'm not a metalurgist, but some how freezing them down way past sub-zero temps does something to molecular structure in the metal...I think aligns things or something like that. I have heard good things about these rotors. However at the time I didn't have the money to spend on them.

I had a 87 Firebird Formula that had rear disks. I had to replace a siezed rear caliper at about 75k. According to my mechanic (not a dealer, a real trusted mechanic) the cable from the e brake mechanically operates the calipers. The calipers tended to die early because the cable enry point was not sealed well.
Of course, this is old memory talking here, I may not be remembering the details correctly. But I do remember the e brake cable (splitting) and going into both calipers.

Would a warped rotor cause a squeaking/whiny noise at low speeds and turning? I only hear it at low speeds due to wind noise and it sounds like a part on the rotor is rubbing against something on every revolution and gets really close at a certain point. Very annoying and embarrasing to have a whiny squeaky car.
I don't think it is a bent dust shield, this noise comes and goes apparently at random. When it is wet out I rarely hear it if that helps.

Josh: excellent writing, can't say much more than that.

I love my slotted rotors.
I try not to drive through puddles after hard braking, that is probably the single most cause of rotor warpage.
