Heat is the primary cause of ineffective brakes due to fade. There is actually a " boundary layer " of gases that builds up between the pad and rotor surface which inhibits performance. Heres where Power Slot rotors make a big difference. The exclusive Vac-U-Slots machined into the rotor "wipes" brake pads clean, evacuates gases, and sheds heat. A combination of a "high performance pad" and Power Slot rotors will provide superior reliable braking for virtually all automotive and truck applications, with an upgrade to larger diameter rotors and bigger calipers typically only needed for the most severe competition applications.
Power Slot brake rotors are manufactured to the highest tolerances keeping SAFETY and quality the number one priority. Slotting, unlike drilling, doesn't compromise the structural integrity of the brake rotor. When you drill a brake rotor you weaken it and cause stress points that can lead to cracking and ultimately failure. Also, drilled rotors lose considerable surface area compared to slotted rotors which means less active braking area for pad to brake rotor contact.
Power Slot rotors are made using the highest quality Original Equipment replacement blanks. Competitors will sacrifice quality by using inexpensive off-shore castings. Typically these brake rotors are made of inferior porous material and often have less cooling fins than the OE brake rotors. These fins also serve to reinforce the brake rotor and guard against warpage. Power Slot rotors always meet and/or exceed all OE specifications. It is also important to know that the exclusive Vac-U-Slot is tapered to enhance evacuation of heat and gases. All machining is done in house to Power Performance Groups application specific tolerances to ensure optimum quality control.
The final touch is a military-spec cadmium plating that gives Power Slot rotors their bright silver finish and protects the rotor from the elements. This eliminates rusty rotor syndrome and enhances the look of custom wheels.
