Exploding Rotors: why you do not drill

I'm not inclined to blame the rotors.  Pure conjecture unless you can
inspect the strut, caliper and related items.  Most likely a stuck,
overheated caliper caused the disk to break apart, IMHO.  Plenty of other
scenarios besides disk failure are possible, any of which would have
trashed a "normal" platter too.
