As far as I know any decent brake place should be able to machine slotted or slotted / cros drilled rotors, the place I go to charge an extra $5 per disc to machine slotted rotors.

The place that does your Discs are they a Nation-Wide outlet place? Because if so I might rock up to my local one up here and see if they do it and ask for a, "PLEASE Explain!"if they dont. Otherwise give me the address anyway Post-up or PM if you like, Cheers Weeman :D

I have run about 5 sets of Bendix Ultimates on the same set of X-Drilled/Slotted rotors over the last 2 years. The slots are still like new, and there are no cracks. I don't know what you people are doing to ur brakes! Almost every time the waggin is out it gets an absolute thrashing!

I agree they're a bit dusty, but nothing excessive. I'm running ultimates in the sprint, and compared with the el cheapo brand that the mechanic put in last service in the fairmont, they make LESS dust for about 10 times better feel and bite.
Can't comment on wear cause I haven't had it long enough yet.
