The slotted rotor is generally recommended for more "extreme" use of the disk for those uses. Brembo conducts numerous bench and road tests to meet the braking system's performance and thermal-mechanical needs in the broadest possible range of operating conditions for all types of brake disks, particularly those with braking belt machining, as in the case of drilled and slotted disks.
This prevents the risk of cracks forming for both drilled and slotted disks. However, limited to use under extreme conditions, as racing conditions can be, or even just for track sessions, the slotted disk has a higher mechanical resistance than the drilled disk, so it should be preferred.
Perhaps even more important than making your car accelerate faster, is making your car stop before you crash. Modifying a car always starts with increasing horsepower and torque. And then to handle the added muscle, we proceed to upgrading the suspension with more capable shocks and beefier springs. A wheel and tire package comes next for more contact patch. By now, we may have made Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car.
But then to make a turn so we won’t fall off a cliff, we need to upgrade the car’s brakes. And brakes aren’t just essential for our fast road cars, it is also a very important part of racing. Drag cars need strong brakes to not end up in a tree. Formula 1 even uses carbon fiber brakes to make sure the cars stop properly before taking the fast, sweeping chicanes at Imola.
