Ok I am about to ruin your fast and furious crossed drilled and slotted brake myth once and for all! sorry for the haters but look at my logic and you will find it makes sense.
In the 50-60s brake pad compound was in its infancy so when they got hot in racing they created or released gasses that would prevent the system from working properly, a remedy to that was to slot or cross drill the rotor to let the gasses escape tada! that's where it came from
the 2017 compound that makes our brakes are now much much improved nobody needs those holes or groove because there are no gasses produced bottom line.
for now though those who think its an improvement are sadly mistaking myth vs reality
1st; when is last time you saw an F1 or Nascar running carbon brakes of a diam of like 19 ff****ing inches have holes in them Lmfao
the only real improvement you're going to get are vented discs that do wonders to cool the brake system. the holes ok here it is science says more of that heat dissipation material called steel the more heat dissipation there will be = fact. Errr why then putting a Swiss cheese disc would help dissipate heat and keep cooler --- Wrrrrong the opposite effect less cooling material (called metal) less cooling capacity and that's the end of it. And now for the grove guys well sorry it had the same effect in the 50s which was great but now those groves are irrelevant for gasses dissipation therefore you are grinding or chewing those expensive pads for what? also less metal less dissipation.
it may look cool and before I research into it I had them on my 93 del sol yep am guilty to.
Plz now pass on this info to stop the myth and stop wasting mad amount of money because Brembo says its cool its not its uncool (btw you think Brembo don't know this. disc with holes sells better so holes it is)

btw I know its the wrong thread sorry for hijacking
feel free to relocate this post

Just some fix, the compound released gases which stay between pad and rotor which prevented the braking properly, then they made drilled rotors.
Later on under heat the top level compound of the pad became poor, then they made the slotted rotors to clean this layer of poor compound.
And i fully agree that nowadays it is not relevant to the brakes, however i use drilled + slotted for beauty and yeah, i sacrifice my pads (~30% faster worn due to slots) for beauty.

Here I am, smack in the middle of a water pump/timing belt/tensioner and pulleys changeout. It's looking like the timing cover was replaced sloppily, and didn't seal. Some drips from the power steering leak suffered by the last owner. Also, was apparently rubbing against the belt which wore it down also.

This was from a few weeks ago, she hasn't really been moved. I am in between jobs right now, and she's having alternator issues, and has a flat tire. Hopefully things will turn around soon so I can finally show her love.

I went down to TX for a few months, drove her down and back, she took it like a champ even with 213k miles. I did blow a tire in the middle of nowhere in OK on the way back up to MN at 4AM. Once I stopped driving her daily, she got mad and started having alternator issues.
