      I prefer just drilled. Don't run those cheap ceramic pads. They are most likely junk. I tried a set and they barely stopped the car. I replaced them with the cheapest organics at Oriely and the car stopped way better.
      Driving for me is neither a right nor a privilege. Driving is my passion, as it was for the people who invented the automobile, the people who paved the first roads and the people who continue to improve the automobile. Please respect this passion.

        Funny you say that, Charlie. Given the propensity for drilled rotors to develop stress cracks, and their less than optimal ability for outgassing, and complete inability to continually deglaze the pads, I would have thought you'd lean towards slotted rotors instead.
        Trees aren't kind to me...

        currently: 2 88Ls (Scrappy and Jersey), 88LX, 90L(Pepe), 91L, 91GL (Skippy) 93 GL Sport (the Mighty Favakk), 94 (Bruce) & 95 Aspire SEs, 97 Aspire (The Joker),
        94 Justy 4WD, 87 Fiero GT, plus 2 parts cars. That's my fleet.

          I don't plan on running these, I just came across them on Ebay. I bought a set of Power Stop Cross Drilled and Slotted Rotors with Ceramic Pad combo for my Sentra years ago they seamed to add a little more bite and I only paid like $200 on RockAuto for them so I was pretty happy.

          I have some brand new Brembo rotors sitting in the garage that I was going to swap on but I also have the Capri XR2 sitting in the yard that I use for a brake swap so I'm not sure what I am going to do yet. Either way the parts will get used since I am picking up the new Festy in GA this weekend.

            I've rigiruously tested both styles head to head on several cars, and the results always favored the drilled rotors when a ventilated rotor is used. Slotted rotors may be a better choice with a solid rotor, as the gasses can be trapped by the rotor. In a ventilated rotor, outgassing is improved by airflow through the rotor. Hot gasses escape more easily. That's just my experience from Daytona to Laguna Seca and a good portion of the tracks in between.



            This advice is derived from actual testing of the Chinese products on an actual Festiva on a close coarse test track by a consumer who paid full price for the components and has no affiliation with the products whatsoever.

              From my experience, and the experience of several other people I've talked with, the cheap ceramic pads take a lot of pedal effort and feel glazed on a Festiva. The set I tried was on Capri xr2 brakes with drilled and slotted rotors. Back to back with cheap organics, was night and day. I'll never put another set of those cheap ceramic pads on anything.
