Thanks for sharing your experience. BTW, are you talking about the Deluxe Plus or just the Deluxe? These are two different pads made by Axxis/PBR. David Zeckhausen gives the Deluxe Plus the thumbs up and says they're OEM-like in performance and he's quite a respected brake expert. Metalmasters are also highly recommended.

PBR metalmasters are very good with the Brembo rotors

I realize this thread is about cross drilled rotors but what about slotted rotors. Everyone talks about cross drilled rotors...so what's the dilly with slotted rotors.

I've heard of cross drilled rotors breaking and cracking...

I'm pretty sure they were the Deluxe Plus. When I looked closely at the material, they seemed like compacted paper. I guess that's why they're so easy on rotors. Btw, if you're shopping around for prices, check out National auto parts (not NAPA), sorry I don't have their number, they're in the yellow pages under automotive parts in mississauga (Cawthra/Queensway area). I got the PBR Metal masters, front and rear, for under $100.
