I made a tool that slid in to the vanes and had 3 holes for a center punch and drilled my rotors .I checked for cracks every week no problems.I have drilled and scalloped rotors with a real aggresive pad on the rear of our L/M.the rotors were wearing real fast I switched back to a standard rotor and the wear slowed.There is a nascar steering box that is 5lbs lighter.

I am going to cut the outside of a set of Camaro front rotors off. Not sure if they'll hold up, but gonna try it. :eek:Figure I can either make spacers or add a extra brake pad to keep from pushing the caliper piston out too far.

Cut more off the back side ,the front buy the hub is where it gets thin and cracks.I've had some at .810 speedway motors has some round spacers.
