Vented rotors verses Standard

I was looking into upgrading some components on the suspension and noticed they are offering drilled and vented rotors for the Jag. Is there any benefit to the drilled and vented ones?
Are they harder on the pads?

Regards
Mark

Drilled rotors are for weight saving and only beneficial for racing purposes and they will eat your pads quicker , vented discs are for cooling , will help your braking and are beneficial for any application .

I run Brembo cross drilled rotors on my 2001 Jetta with stainless braided hoses, Mintex red box pads, and ATE blue fluid. It is like night and day from the stock set up which was good to begin with. Cross drilled or slotted rotors will not eat your pads up. They displace heat better. I have slotted rotors on my Saturn and they work well also. I realy think that in order to notice a differance, you need to replace the hoses ,fluid, pads, and rotors.

I watched hot rod tv and they did a show on brakes a while back. They showed cross drilled rotors and regular rotors as well as some others. The cross drilled rotors disapate heat the same as the regular rotors, the holes in the rotors lets the gas made by the pads excape and thus causes better braking no soft peddle during hard braking. The regular rotors cool good and work well but just basically a step down from the drilled rotors.
