Yes u can but have to make sure the cutting tool is sharp

Also visit DBA rotor website and it gives you instructions on how to do it properly

More cooling. I have been told they are also more likely to crack due to the cross drilling, no doubt they are, but whether It is really an issue under normal use I don't know.

I don't take a liking to the Slotted and Cross Drilled Rotor's, the Cross Drilled ones tend to wear more quickly, and I've also seen them crack where it's been drilled.

The slotted ones however, I prefer, as they last longer, and also take alot of the "would be" temp from the brakes, the slot's in the rotor's are purely to take away the fireband, nothing more, nothing less.

Hope that helps

The drills were put in discs to keep the gasses away from the face of the disc. You know back in the day when we used to have good brake pads with asbestos in them.
Plus they look sporty.
