Question:
I’ve had a New MINI Cooper for about a year I’ve been wanting to make some changes/mods to it and I was wondering if Dimpled Rotors affect the driving performance (due to its weight) of my MINI? I've done some research and I feel like they’re a pretty good set to exchange from my regular solid ones.
Answer:

I've found the YouTube Channel Engineering Explained has a very good video on cross drilled/slotted/dimpled rotors. The weight difference for dimpled rotors isn't much - but if you're looking for every last ounce then that is an easy place to look. The best performing brakes are larger diameter rotors and aggressive compound pads - keeping in mind that for the most part - better  stopping performance = lower brake life. Most "big brake kits" come with drilled rotors for that sporty look.
