Drilled rotors help cool down the rotors a bit faster, and also help a bit in wet braking surfaces. But if your tracking the car it is not recommend. Of course if you have an unlimited budget, and can change the drilled rotors after every race... then it might be plausible.

Also to answer the question about pads... HPS and HP+ are two totally different type of pads. HPS is made for street performance and HP+ were made for autocross and light track use. HP+ is not intended for street use. They require heat before they reach its maximum friction levels. Also they are noisey pads. Track users will not care about the noise or dust, and will have time to properly warm the brakes up.
Thanks for the info, so would switching out my stock brakes to your drilled & slotted rotors with a set of Hawk HPS be good for daily driving if I was looking for an increase in braking peformance?

By what you are saying, any of the drilled rotors would only be good for street use and the slotted rotors are more beneficial to people who are tracking their cars? I love the look of the drilled & slotted and I'm just wondering if that's the best way for me to go. I don't track my car, but I would like to take it out on a track one day, not actual racing but one of those lapping events. Would it be ok to have the drilled rotors for this or should I just play it safe and get the slotted only?

Yes for increased performance for swapping pads and rotors.

Slotted is also beneficial to daily driver too. Slots help remove some of the brake derbies off the rotor surface, thus giving a cleaner surface for your brake pads to hit. For a track lap drilled should hold up fine. Even in track days I seen drilled rotors survive just fine. As I was saying in previous post, depends on what kind of track your in. But in your situation both would be okay. Lot of people seems to be worried about cracked rotors, let me say it is EXTREMELY rare for that to happen.

Exactly the info I was looking for and thanks for the quick response too. :bigthumbup:

:bowdown: Thank you for the order!

I have got in touch with the internet department to get that issue resolved. We should have everything listed on our website in a few days!

Hey R1, I thought I'll post a pic here for everyone too see how the rotors look on a aftermarket rim. I too am waiting to install everything since the car is in storage for the winter. I ended up buying these off ManOnFire since he got the Track version and not his. Plus it saved me on shipping costs. These Track rotors are huge!

I installed my rotors/pads today (ignore my corroded/unpained calipers :(, going to need some better weather for that project) and I have a stupid question. Seeing as how the slots are for removing the brake dust from the surface of the rotor, does it matter which way the rotors are installed?... What I mean is should the slots be towards the front of the car or the rear? Does it even matter? I installed mine with the slots slanted to the front of the car.

/:/:/:/ ------> Front of ther car or \:\:\:\ -----> front of the car.

A lot of different people will tell you different things when it comes down to the slot/drill direction. I will clarify it for everyone here. The direction you have on right now is the way Baer and Brembo recommendations. We actually recommend the other way. But in reality it DOES NOT matter which way they go in the Genesis Coupe. The reason being the rotors do NOT have a directional vane structure. So its purely preference when you have a straight vaned rotor. Hope that answers your question! Thank you for posting those up! And feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for posting that~ Most people seem to prefer putting the slot positions that way. But again, if you have it on the other way... I would not go through the trouble of removing the rotors to swap it again.

Thanks for the replies, I should have asked before I installed them I guess but the idea never even occured to me before I had 2 of them installed already. :rofl:

Really feel a big difference in the brakes now (rotors+hawk hps pads), glad I did the upgrade. The results were exactly what I was looking for, brake pedal is more sensitive now and the rotors look great. :bigthumbup:
