Re: Cross drilled or slotter rotors? Opinions needed

I have cross drilled and after 40k miles, 2 turn downs, more track days than
I can count, and recently installed Porterfield R compounds they just
started to crack.  Not too shabby if you ask me (which you did not:-).
Several other people I know also have them and none of them have cracks.

One more thing re:powerdiscs.  There is 1 bad thing I can say about them.
They are BUT ugly.  IMNSHO.
