I know. But if the rotors get hot enough to fade, pad won't matter. So the drilled rotor has more surface area so should cool better. Less overall friction area but if its the difference between working brakes and not... I'd choose the working brakes with less friction area. Not everyone can afford what it costs for a nice BBK with increased cooling AND friction area... LolNot really referring to brake fade when I'm talking about a better pad, but more so a better bite. Kind of like upgrading the oem tires that were designed for EPA ratings for a tire that grips better.
