Take a look at this new livestream presented by Summit Racing, covering all things about drilled and slotted rotors!

In a one-hour Livestream sponsored by Summit Racing, Andrew Markel and the experts at Summit Racing covered the benefits of drilled and slotted rotors for the track and daily drivers.

The experts from Summit Racing and Tomorrow’s Technician answered the following questions:

  • How can a lighter brake rotor outperform a heavier rotor?

  • Can the holes or slots increase or decrease braking performance? 
  • What are some of the best-looking slot and hole patterns?
