But I would not put slotted or cross drilled rotors on any car, let alone a 9k. It's a dumb fad. Doesn't accomplish a damn thing, contrary the opinion of all the drifters and rice boys, and you pay extra for it. It can cause problems with the disks and *will* wear out any pads you opt to use faster. Oh, and I have never heard of "City Pro" brand of brake pads, which I think says they are probably not all that special. Here' my recco: Zimmerman (non-drilled) or Brembo disks and PBR deluxe pads from If you are really tough and aggressive on your brakes, use the PBR ceramic pads. Very good feel, very low dust. I have 1st hand experience with all of these and you will not find anything better. You'll thank me -- -Fred W
