Default Slotted / Crossdrilled Rotors?

Rotors.. anyone know if the US STi will have basic rotors or do we get some kind slotted, crossdrilled..

would there be any difference between??

i assume it would be pretty easy (an smart?) to add the aftermarket rotors, afterall we get the nice Brembos so why not top of the line rotors as well..

Well if you are doing it for appearance, and appearace is of the rotors is a worthy mod, go for it by all means. However, I believe the stock brakes are going to be very nice.....depending on your planned use.

The design of rotor that comes on the car will be better for everyday and wear use than cross drilled. The casting of the cor e of the disk has been shown to cool the disk better than cross drilled. Grove with a our cast pattern would be very good for track use as it would let the gas build up between the disk and pads escape. However, I would say that stock disk verse cross drill using stock pad the solid rotor car will stop quicker.

I wouldn't spend money on aftermarket slotted when the ones it comes with are slotted. Unless you are going racing I don't see the advantage.
