Besides the obvious, what's the difference between slotted and drilled rotors? Is one better than the other?

It is mainly for venting and dispersing heat. I wouldnt call one better than the other. You can get drilled rotors, slotted rotors, or drilled AND slotted rotors. I personally dont like drilled rotors because of previous experiences on my mustang where they would get small cracks in between the holes after several good heat cycles. I love the ebc DIMPLED and slotted rotors. I plan on getting some for my ram with some ebc "green stuff" pads when the time comes.
