Re: Brake Rotors: slotted versus drilled

Fine post. There quite a few good starter books on this, like those by Fred Puhn and Carroll Smith.

The bling factor. Yeah. Bling. There's more of this bling-misengineering-thing going on that just with brakes. Huge wheels (revealing just how puny stock road car brakes are, exposing the rest of the bling effort as poseur), suspensions on bumps stops, wings... Not much of it is good "go" practice, and doesn't make good "show" either to those who know. And, yes, as Steven warns some of this bling could be dangerous.
