Someone posted a real pics of the DRT slotted rotors, and they were looked like this:


when on DRT-sport.com website, their slotted rotors shown like this:


The first pattern (as shown on first pic) I love more, but where is the truth? Which is the real DRT slotted rotors pattern?

I believe you can get the patterns 'over-[slotted]', which is what the top picture is, while the lower picture is just the slotted.

Yep, thanks DarekP. The ebay offer for front and rear kit from drt-sport store is cheaper, than on the web-store. I think, I'll get them.
I am very happy with my set.

I would like to found some real pics of drilled/slotted DRT rotors, seted up on the car to compare, which pattern looks better on the car, but that slotted ones, that you showed looks very good!

But the big pros, why I temped to buy just slotted, that they wouldn't crack. :)

Interesting. The set that I got from them is overbored around the hub bore (and does not sit centered on the hub). I believe they may have switched manufacturers for the rotors at some point. Did you have that same issue?

No problems here. And, manufacturer of my set is Centric Parts.

Interesting. I received Centric as well, and they were mis-boxed (left vs. right vanes), and the hub bore was off by 1-2mm

Ok, I think I may know what's going on here.

DRT offers "regular" and "premium" rotors for our cars. I have the DRT "premium" slotted rotors from their webpage [second ones pictured]. I believe their cheaper "regular" rotors are the ones offered on ebay. They're all centric blanks before DRT gets them, but the steel qualities/chemistry may be different between the two varieties.
