I'd like to take a moment again to thank Dan for his help. Really great guy to deal with. Now onto the review :D

I noticed that a couple of months ago, Dan had a post on the turbo 3 haven about "cross drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic pads for sale". After enquiring about them, he told me they were OEM sized and the exact same shape, except cross drilled and slotted. I let it lie for a little while, until my buddy got his sprint turbo. Needless to say, his front brakes were shot. My front rotors were starting to get thin as well, so I contacted Dan again. He said he still had some sets left, so I ordered two. All I will say about the price is that it is WAY cheaper than buying premium stuff from Crappy tire on sale. When I got the rotors and pads, they looked exactly as described (even have the holes that are used to pop the rotor on and off). I will take pics tomorrow morning and post them. I should have reviews up by sunday when I have Dan's brakes and new monroe pads on the back. And an added bonus, they are allowed in super stock/street prepared with no prep points required :lol:

Edit-
Picture uploaded of rotors and pads in my personal gallery.

An update on this product. All I can say is "wow". I went to my auto-x, and after having replaced the rear shoes as well, this car is a braking machine. I never had any problems with light brake applications or stops from 70km/h into the stopbox with my brake pedal mashed. The brakes need to be bled, but there was never any fade and they were just excellent. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs new front brakes, as they are cheaper and better than premium qaulity components from a parts store.
