    i have those pads (green stuff 7000) but went with the regular rotors because there is already a warping issue with heat from hills and water from streams if you go off pavement. Ive read a drilled and slotted is more prone to warp so i decided against them. I have no first hand knowledge of that so take it for what its worth. i had regular rotors and they still warped within a year so who knows.

    report back on install.

    You guys realize that slotted and drilled rotors do nothing for 'performance', right...?

    Sure they do. The slots make the rotor more aerodynamic and with the amount of metal removed to make the dimples and slots makes the rotors lighter thus my tacoma is actually faster than yours. Don't be a hater. :D

    when you use quotes in an ambiguous way, we can all always be right.

    10k on them. Feels like new. Not sure if it's the rotors or simply torquing the lugs to the right spec, the guy that put on my tires really hit it hard with the pneumatic so i went in and re torqued the spacers and wheels. Either way, still happy. I'll check back in at 20k.....
