Brake Rotor Cross-Drilling/Dimpling/Slotting



The process of Cross-Drilling, Dimpling, and Slotting the Brake Rotors plays a crucial role in enhancing the performance of your vehicle’s braking system. These modifications serve two primary functions: venting and anti-glazing.

Venting refers to the dissipation of heat generated during braking. When the brake pads press against the rotors, a significant amount of heat is produced. This heat can lead to brake fade, reducing the effectiveness of your brakes. Cross-drilled, dimpled, or slotted rotors have additional pathways for the heat to escape, thereby reducing the risk of brake fade and improving overall brake performance.

Anti-glazing is another important aspect. Glazing occurs when the brake pads get too hot, causing the pad material to form a shiny layer on the surface. This layer reduces the friction between the pad and the rotor, leading to decreased braking power. The additional surface area provided by the cross-drilled holes, dimples, or slots on the rotors helps to scrape off this glaze, maintaining optimal brake pad friction.

When you add this service to your cart, we will apply these modifications to the brake rotors that you order. The image provided shows a spiral drilled hole pattern, which is just one of the many patterns we offer. We also have a variety of other hole patterns available, including various dimpling and slotting patterns. These different patterns allow you to choose the one that best suits your vehicle’s needs and your personal preferences. Please note that the choice of pattern may affect the performance characteristics of your brakes, so choose wisely!
