Do you want vastly improved braking performance at prices comparable to a factory OE brake job? Then check out Power Slot Brakes and Power Slot Brake Rotors. Power Slot means premium quality and performance. The secret is the machined slot in all Power Slot Brakes, which directs heat, gases, and brake dust out of the rotor and away from the rotor surface.

The result is improved pad-to-rotor friction and shorter stopping distances. The slot is standard on all Power Slot Brakes, but that's only one of the many improvements available. You can also get Power Slot Brakes that have been cryogenically-treated with liquid nitrogen. This process restructures the crystals in the rotor metal giving it up to 150% longer life than a standard rotor.

And with Power Slot Brake Rotors, you get improved cooling. Because the slots are precision milled, they can be used as wear indicators on your Power Slot Brake Rotors, too. Standard Power Slot Rotors are great upgrades for stock systems, but if you need even more power, you can move up to cryogenically-treated Power Slot Brake Rotors and make them great for racers or other heavy-duty vehicles. It's because Power Slot Rotors are designed to beat the challenges of high performance brake demands. Brightly plated, they eliminate rusty rotor syndrome and enhance the look of custom wheels. Slotted design vents super heated gas, improving brake performance.

Power Slot products are manufactured to the highest tolerances keeping safety and quality, so check out Power Slot Brakes now/

  • Tips on Buying Power Slot Brakes & Rotors 29 August 2012

    Whether you drive a sports car, SUV, truck or sport compact, Power Slot Brakes are the best choice. With over a thousand vehicle fitments, Power Slot Brakes will fit your vehicle. Power Slot Brakes have pioneered the performance rotor business and have never lost their focus. First were the Power Slot Brakes gas slotted OE replacement rotors, and that success was closely followed by the Pro-Stop slotted and dimpled rotors. And, for 2005, Power Slot Brakes has introduced two new product lines: Power Slot Cryo by Frozen Rotors and Power Slot Plus big brake kits.
    Power Slot Brake Rotors are built to exceed fit, finish and performance of the original equipment on your vehicle with no offshore economy rotor hiding in the program. Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or 'outgas'. As that brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surface and inhibits performance. Power Slot Brake Rotors can make a big difference with exclusive Vac-U-Slots that are machined into the rotor to help evacuate gas and dust, shred heat and keep the brake pad surface clean. And, in wet, rainy conditions, the Power Slot Brake Rotors Vac-U-Slot helps push water off the braking surface for better stopping power. The Vac-U-Slot also serves as a visual wear indicator. The slot is machined to the Power Slot Brake Rotor's minimum thickness where it crosses the outside edge. If you cannot see the slot along the outside edge, the rotor has worn down to its discard depth.
    Power Slot Rotors deliver superior, reliable braking for nearly all automotive, truck and SUV applications, even under hard driving and severe duty conditions. If you have a demand for even more stopping power, Power Slot Rotors are available for police pursuit vehicles and club racers. Every rotor starts off as a premium quality blank casting sourced from the best foundries in North America, Europe and Japan. Power Slot products meet and exceed the features of the OEM rotor, paying special attention to the casting grade and metallurgy per SAE J431; brinnel hardness (BHN) and surface finish (RA). Critical design elements are also in place, like the number of cooling vanes, van direction, heat darns and plate thickness.
    Power Slot's motto is simple: premium quality equals premium performance. That's why Power Slot is known as the Performance Brake Professionals.

  • Choosing the Right Power Slot Product, For the Right Job 22 August 2012

    Avoid the fractures common in drilled rotors, yet still get improved braking by using Power Slot rotors

    The Vac-U-Slot groove in all Power Slot rotors acts as a dust vacuum and a wear indicator all in one

    Power Slot brakes can now be ordered with cryogenic treatment, improving structural rigidity and reducing rotor wear by as much as one-third

    Big Brakes from Power Slot add larger rotors to your stock calipers for increased swept area with minimal additional investment

    Do you want vastly improved braking performance at prices comparable to a factory OE brake job? Then check out Power Slot brakes. When combined with a high-performance semi-metallic brake pad set, Power Slot brakes, with their exclusive Vac-U-Slot, can dramatically lower braking distances while improving fade resistance, pad wear, and rotor wear. The secret is the machined slot in all Power Slot brakes, which directs heat, gasses, and brake dust out of the rotor and away from the rotor surface. The result is improved pad-to-rotor friction and shorter stopping distances. The slot is standard on all Power Slot brakes, but that's only one of the many improvements available. You can also get Power Slot brakes that have been cryogenically-treated with liquid nitrogen. This process restructures the crystals in the rotor metal giving it up to 150% longer life than a standard rotor. Want even more? Check out the new Big Brake system from Power Slot brakes. This retrofit kit from Power Slot brakes actually gives you a larger diameter rotor and a hardware kit to relocate your factory caliper, providing more brake swept area. Depending upon your needs and your pocketbook, you now have a couple of different levels to which you can take your braking performance. All you need is the right Power Slot brakes to clamp down on excessive stopping distances.

    Have you ever seen a cat jump onto a dusty tabletop? The cat slides across the table due to the loss of friction from the dust. Now take this analogy and apply it to your brake rotors: When brake dust builds up on your rotors and the pads try to grip them, they slide just like our cat. Only this time, it's not cute; it's dangerous. Power Slot brake rotors eliminate the dust that causes your pads to slip, thus shortening your stopping times. How? As the name implies, Power Slot brake rotors have a series of slots machined into their surface. Brake dust is funneled into the slots and channeled away from the Power Slot brake rotors, minimizing friction loss due to dust buildup. The slots in Power Slot brake rotors don't go all the way through the metal, so you don't have any loss of structural integrity. You do get improved cooling, though, and since the slots are precision milled, they can be used as wear indicators on your Power Slot brake rotors too. Standard Power Slot brake rotors are a great upgrade for stock systems, but if you need even more power, you can move up to cryogenically-treated Power Slot brake rotors. These cold-treated parts have incredible strength and long life when used with semi-metallic pads, making them great for racers or other heavy-duty vehicles. And with more than 1,000 applications available, you can find Power Slot brake rotors for your car, truck, van, or SUV right here.

    Having a vacuum hose right on your brake rotors would be a great way to dissipate heat and dust, wouldn't it? And even though no manufacturer currently offers such an option, you can get the same effect when you install Powerslot rotors on your car or truck. Take a close look at Powerslot rotors and you'll see where they get their name: There are several machined slots on the surface of the brake disc. These slots allow Powerslot rotors to vacuum brake dust, heat, and gasses off the pad and rotor surface so you get more consistent, more effective braking performance no matter what you drive. The slots in Powerslot rotors don't go all the way through the rotor surface: That means Powerslot rotors don't suffer from the reduction in strength that you get from drilled rotors. The cracking that's all too common on cross-drilled discs is a thing of the past when you install Powerslot rotors. Powerslot rotors also let you know when they need to be replaced thanks to those ingenious slots. They're machined to the minimum wear depth of your Powerslot rotors, so when you can't see the slots, you need to replace the rotors. That's a lot easier than breaking out the micrometer every few months! So take a look and see if there are Powerslot rotors available for your applicationmost popular cars and trucks are covered, so we should have your Powerslot rotors ready to ship.
