Best Rotors-Drill/Slotted, Both or Blank???

I'm about to get a new set of rotors for my brake upgrade so I'm looking for some opinions on what is the better of the choices, drilled, slotted, drill and slotted or the blanks? Sure the zinc plated drilled/slotted are purty but I'm looking for the best performance. There has to be a difference in the three. Based on your experience, what has served you best?

Depends on your uses/goals. For street, blank is best. Offers the greatest surface area, and on the street heat, gas dissipation, and cleaning are not generally issues. They even work well on the track with certain setups, and certainly fine for autox.

For track, there is a bit of debate, but I prefer dimpled like what the majority of modern race cars use.

Drilled offers a weight decrease, slotted helps shed heat and drilled/slotted do both. Blanks are a good choice but I really like powerslot rotors and have been using them for years. The slots help remove debris from the brake pad ensuring a clean braking surface. They cost about 20 dollars more than blanks.

I daily drive and lightly track my car for now, I have been running brembo blanks with good pads and SS brake lines and they have never let me down and is definitely a big improvement over the stock brakes. I don't think I need anything better at the moment due to my car not seeing conditions extreme enough to warrant more...

I have drilled and slotted. I'll see how they like them. I'm sure it's better than no brakes!
