Just curious what made you choose the slotted and drilled rotors vs. just slotted? I've seen a million debates about this and it seems theres been alot of problems with the longevity of the drilled rotors, especially with track use. I personally do like the slotted and drilled ones better, especially if it is only for looks and I wouldn't be driving it on the track. Is that your senario?

Will have some pics later today when I am finished with the install. Bottom line is that DBA is out of slotted and these are the only ones available at the moment. If DBA is good as they claim, I shouldn't have to worry about cracking since I am NOT doing heavy lap sessions. In the past, I tracked heavily with xdrilled BBK and never had any issues with cracking.

Oh ok. I'm feeling that. I know theyre out of the slotted, that's why Im waiting until the first week of march for mine. I ordered the dba 4000, just slotted version.

That is not true.

Are you talking about the MazdaSPEED 3 slotted, or the regular 3 slotted being in stock?

The SPEED3 slotted are out of stock, the regular ones are available (at least we have em hehe).

[user]blackbird[/user] won a set of these (although I don't know if they are slotted and drilled, or just slotted at a car show this past summer. He loves them! I would too when they are retailed at about $1,000 for a set of 4!

OH, sorry. I forgot to mention that I converted my front brakes to Mazdaspeed brake rotors and calipers, so I was talking about those. I have the regular mazda 3 slotted ones sitting in my livingroom where I bought them and then two days later decided to do the conversion. So I never used them. Guess I'll have to sell them.
