    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Re: After market cross drilled or slotted rotors for '06 CTS V

    I bought drt slotted only rotors. ive read that slotted and drilled dont help but main went with slotted for looks. im sure others will chime in with more opinions.

    I bought stoptech street performance brake pads. they were about the same as stock. I got them from...
    import replacement parts . com


    I will be getting hawk hp+ next to improve the braking. search around there are many options and threads on pad choices. good luck

    I have had pretty decent luck with R1 brake stuff in the past. I plan on getting their slotted rotors for the front and stock replacement rears. Haven't decided on pads yet.

    Plenty of threads discussing this topic.

    Basically, if you aren't too rough on your brakes you can go cross drilled up front. I've broken two drilled fronts on the street. I still have not broken cross drilled rears. Hawk HP+ pads are good on the street and bite harder than stock. Hawk HPS's have less dust but bite less than the stock pads.

    I purchased the gm performance drilled rotors from luke at Lindsay. Had em on the car now for atleast 2 years and not a single issue. Only driven around town with a few hard stops every now and then.

    ^^^ you haven't had problems... But Pisnuoff is a whole new level of destructive capabilities. I have always heard of people breaking drilled rotors. All my motorcycles came with them. Never had a problem. I even had drilled rotors on a few cars/trucks, only had a problem with one, not going to name the company but it was covered under warranty. But considering the size and attainable velocity with the V I'm gonna get slotted ones and call it a day.

    Mine came with the GM performance front and rear, loved them! I just got the "Brakemotive" package and it cannot be beat. Front and rear drilled/slotted rotors and front/rear pads for the price of front rotors everywhere else.

    With respect to protecting your wheels from HP+ brake dust (especially if you have a delicate glossy finish, like the one on the Forgestar F14), I highly recommend Blackfire Crystal Seal. In fact, I recommend this over carnuba wax for the entire car, but if you had to put it in one place, the wheels would be it. Makes removal of that caked-on brake dust much, much easier, and prevents scratching.

    I find drilled rotors "ugly" - they look like the brakes have termite damage.

    I have a set of slotted only fronts that I used on the track and they have 1" cracks in the solid faces. I wouldn't compare that to any amount of street use though.

    Seriously... Wtf? What did you play with as a child? Concrete blocks? How do you break so much stuff??? You cracked slotted rotors? Sheesh... I watch the Le Mans cars run slotted rotors for 24 hours of death racing and they are fine, neck the LMP1 cars run carbon drilled rotors. Did they drop you on Hiroshima or Nagasaki and just blame it on a nuke? lol I love it, someone that breaks more stuff than me. Its a miracle... Or a curse.

    Those were used for many track days with Carbotech carbon/ceramic pads.

    And...my parents owned a concrete construction company while I was growing up.

    I recently put on front slotted DRT rotors, which are made by Centric... haven't had them on the track yet. Hawk HP+ and Motul RBF600 or ATE Type 200 fluid. Track other pads like PFC01.

    I have found great prices on pads at www.importrp.com just call...
