which direction are the slots on my cross drilled/slotted rotors suppose to face? Are the slots suppose to point toward the front of the car or the rear? Thanks in Advance
I got them from Mr. Wood at Raceconcepts about 6 month ago, haven't had a chance to install them til now.TYPEII said:This is hard to say without knowing the direction of vents in the rotors, because the Patterns (drill holes and slots) can go booth ways.

this is what the pattern look like, sorry I don't have a digicam, so paintshop is the next best thing
That is what I heard too... You want the brake pad to touch the slot on the outside first as it turns... It's hard to describe.mfjonny said:I bought my front set from Mr. Wood as well. I followed the directions on the Brembo website and i installed them with the slots/drilling leading from the outer edges in from the front of the car.
front of car \ rear of car
Now, i'm not 100% sure about this, so can someone please confirm/verify?
How do you check for internal vent directions? Is there any way to know if the rotors we have even have directional venting (versus straight venting?)ChrisK said:It doesn't matter which way the slots or direction of the drilled pattern on the rotor faces, as the importenet thing is whcih way the internal vents face. Companies slot or drill the patterns both ways, so there is no way to judge. And I really don't think it matters much which part of the pad hits the slot first. Take a look at all the cars and motorcycles that come with OEM drilled rotors, and you will find differences between OEM drilled rotors as well. However, if they use diretional internal vented rotors, I bet they are all facing the same way. If the rotors have non direction vents, then I guess you simple go in the direction the manufacturer recomends, or whichever looks better to you.
My bet would be to install it in the direction that Porche installes it on their cars.
I just emailed Mr. Wood ar Raceconcepts and he told me that the front rotors he sold me had straight vents... Now i have a non-GS, so they might be different, but are you sure that the rotors you purchased from Mr. Wood have curved internal venting? Are the venting slots visible?rockshox72 said:Supposedly the straight vented slots can be placed either way for the rotation, but only the curved slotted ones like I got from Mr. Woods must be pointing away from the direction of the rotation or else it won't cool as effectively.
I think the new design that Raceconcepts are straight, but I purchased my rotors over 6 month ago, so I think they're curvedmfjonny said:
