No such thing.  Brakes change Kinetic energy into Thermal energy.  THe 
only way that you could get "Low Heat Brake Pads" would to be increase 
the swept area.....  The warping is because of a lack of cooling air, 
That's what you need to be looking for.......  Just drilling those rotors 
is going to make them warp faster because your reducing the Thermal mass 
of the rotors.
