How to properly install plain, slotted, or drilled brake rotors.
I'll just leave this here:

How to properly install plain, slotted, or drilled brake rotors

I disagree that the slot direction is of no consequence (I realize I'm in a tiny minority here). However, obviously the internal cooling vane direction takes precedence. If you're having your own slots machined on and think they should face in one direction (and not another) make sure to tell your machinist to cut them in the proper direction, taking into account the internal cooling vanes. Better yet, mark the slot direction yourself if you can.

Anyway, good info in that link.

I agree with you, the slot direction is dependent on the vane direction. I've been trying to tell people that for years, but maybe it's just us haha.

Thanks for the link.

This is one of the those things that gets very little attention to detail from my experience viewing pictures of "top" builds.

I'm thinking that it would be a good idea to sticky this. It's up to you and the mods I guess.

Can I get this moved to the "How To" section?
I was trying to find it and it took some serious searching skills to uncover it.

Maybe we need a dedicated brake section so this stuff doesn't always get dumped in the suspension section.

Gigabytes of pictures of "high end" builds prove otherwise.

Thanks for the link to a good price on Axxis Ultimates. No NX application but they have em for a 91 Eclipse AWD Turbo.

Agian, I was looking for this thread and had a hard time. Can it be moved to the "How To" section for brakes and suspension?
