The EBC Sport Slotted & Dimpled Brake Rotor delivers the stylish looks and functions of a drilled and slotted rotor but maintains the strength of a slotted rotor. When it comes to brakes heat is the enemy and the EBC Sport Brake Rotors use special dimples and wide slots to help keep temperatures as low as possible. The slotted and dimpled design also pushes out brake gases, dust, and other unwanted debris so that you have a smooth pad to rotor contact patch which is crucial for optimal braking performance.
Drilled vs Dimpled
Whats the big difference between drilled holes and dimples? Besides the odvious visual difference the main difference between the two is overall rotor strength. Not always but on some occassions drilled rotors have been prone to cracking when braking temperatures get high. This is because the drilled holes cause a loss in over rotor strength. The dimples on EBC Sport Slotted & Dimpled Brake Rotors offer the same benefits of drilled rotors, but since they are not through drilled there is no loss in overall rotor strength which decreases the chances of rotor cracking.

One thing to consider before purchasing a Slotted Brake Rotor is the air noise that can be noticed while driving. With most slotted rotors there will be an increase in air noise as the rotors pass under the brake pad during normal driving conditions. Some people like the noise however others may not.
