Drilled/Slotted rotors

Hey guys. I’ve got a 67 Camaro with front disc brakes and I’d like to put drilled and slotted rotors on the front. Problem is I can’t seem to find a set and was hoping someone might be able to direct me.

Re: Drilled/Slotted rotors

Drill and/or Slotted (it is usually one or the other) rotors are an old sports car racing trick to get the gas given off by roasted friction pucks so that they would bite better. (they assumed at the time without any observed evidence that the pucks would hydroplane like a big slick on a wet roar). Keep in mind the disc brakes they were using were WWII surplus disc brakes off of fighter planes. The composition of the friction material has greatly changed with improvements in adhesives and friction material. Most brake companies do not recommend slotted and drilled rotors any more as the machining of the rotor to vent gas to the interior promotes cracks that will eventually destroy the rotor.

If you have a conversion kit that utelizes 1969-72 GM A-Body parts then this kit will work:

MPB and others offer similar parts
