When I purchase new rotors for my '92 Turbo I will be looking for the slotted version only. Drilled rotors come from road racing where parts get changed often so once the cracks start to appear in the trash can they go! Drilled rotors tend to crack at the edges of the holes, hairline at first but have been known to brake into pieces at speed. Slotted on the other hand doesn't suffer from this problem. The slots will 'clean' the pads as they rotate past them and allow any 'gases' to escape, although today's high-perf pads typically come 'de-gassed' from the factory. It is important to note that not all pad materials will work satisfactorly with all disks, you should get pads recommended by the disk maker. A 'too-hard' pad on a soft disk will shorten the disk life drastically and a 'too-soft' pad on a hard disk will have you replacing pads frequently :-)
