I use drilled/slotted rotors and yellowstuff brake pads from EBC brakes on some my service trucks and have been very happy.

Hello. I order a package of DBA 4000 slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads from Welcome : MarylandSpeed.com- Your First Stop on the Way to Performance! and I love them. Price was pretty good too, considering the improvement the stock components. I shopped all over ebay looking for something comparable, and I did find some that were cheaper but I stayed away from them. Quite frankly I was concerned about going with a non-name brand. Disc Brakes Australia makes quality products that are very reliable, so that is why I went with them. Also, I know that you said that you wanted drilled, but everything I have read says to stay away from them, as the drilled holes only weakens the integrity of the rotors. The "ventilated" rotors you see on Corvettes and Porsches, etc are cast that way, not drilled after the fact. HTH.

+1 for Maryland Speed, also check PFYC.com and SummitRacing.

I've heard that cross-drilled rotors have a tendency to crack, and although I've not had personal experience with slotted or drilled brakes, I would say the cracking issue comes from extreme temperature difference. This would be from hard use (autocross, track days) in hot weather, or abrupt stops when its cold enough to snow. I'm not worried about installing drilled/slotted rotors on the GTO, but I wouldn't try it on my Grand Am (DD). I've seen factory rotors warp just from a hard stop when its -10F outside.

Got my DBA 4000XS rotors from Maryland Speed. I also had Haek HPS pads but they cracked so now I'm running EBC reds(only for color matching :-).

No issues with 40k miles since I'm not using Hawks anymore.

I also have DBA 4000XS from Maryland Speed. Hawk pads suck, had them on the car for a week until I couldn't stand the squeeling anymore, put on the highest dollar ceramic pads I could get from O'reily's Auto Parts, and love the hell out of them. Got a set of Hawk Pads with one week's use on them for sale...
