I have warped front rotors and it is now definately time for replacement. I don't have the money for a big brake kit right now, so I'm sticking with the 11"ers for now. I would like to get some cross-drilled to maybe keep the brakes a little cooler, but there are so many companies that sell them I just don't know which ones are better. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.
I would suggest the Balo's from The Ultimate Garage together with brake ducts, ditch the fog lamps. Cross drilled rotors are simply crap unless you're racing and change them every couple of events, if you brake hard enough to warp rotors on the track you're going to eventually develop stress cracks on the edges of the holes of your cross drilled rotors.
A good quality rotor like the Balo will stand up to track braking just fine and last for a while.
Unless cross drilled rotors are coming from Porsche, I wouldn't put them in my car. Just an opinion of course, "looks crowd" will likely defend them.
