The $17 autozone ones.

From what I understand all of the slots and holes were necessary in the old days because the pads would give off "gas" when braking and the holes & slots gave the gas somewhere to go, improving pad/rotor contact. Supposedly the holes aren't necessary now and simply lead to early cracking of the rotor.

crossdrilled to me is worthless. All it is doing is putting stress fractures into the rotor. Slotted is better, but by no means perfect. The pads still give off gasses, and also heat that comes with the friction of braking.

I like the ones that come on dirt bikes. I guess they are cross drilled??? Not sure. But if they put those on those things then they have to be the best.
