Hey I’m Justin with and I’m taking a closer look at DBA’s X gold series cross drilled and slotted rotors, available for all 94 and newer Mustangs. DBA is a brake rotor company that is based out of Australia and known worldwide for their innovative and quality products. We currently offer DBA’s street series which is their entry level performance rotor, and the X gold series which I have with me now. The X gold series does offer some additional benefits that the street series does not, such as being cross drilled and slotted as opposed to just being slotted like the street series. So what are the benefits of going with a drilled and slotted rotor? Well for one that drilled and slotted face is going to improve pad bite initially and reduce fade in all braking situations. Part of the reason the fade is reduced is because the drilled and slotted openings here on the rotor will allow all the friction gases and debris to be rapidly removed from the friction surface. Another unique design with the gold series and other DBA rotors is the addition of their patented kangaroo cooling system, this is the ventilation system between the two friction surfaces. Basically if you were to remove the front of the rotor here, you’d see a number of diamond shaped pillars, as opposed to this traditional straight vein or straight line design. This unique design increases surface area by up to 60% to dissipate heat better, and increase the strength of the rotor overall, reducing warpage. Of course the performance benefits alone are worth of admission, but you also get the appearance benefits of running an aggressive rotor like this, there’s no denying a slotted and drilled rotor is going to look great behind any set of wheels, especially with that gold coating to help keep things looking fresh and free of corrosion. Installing a new set of rotors on your late model Mustang is actually pretty easy, in fact the most time consuming part will probably be jacking the car up, and taking the wheels off, after that removing the caliper and swapping the rotors is nothing more than a few bolts, that should only take you about 2 hours from start to finish. So if you’re looking to improve a vital area of your Mustangs braking system, while also enhancing the appearance side of things behind the wheels, then you have to check out DBA’s X gold brake rotors right here at

Improves Braking. DBA uses a cross-drilled pattern on their X-Gold Street Series Rotors that improves braking performance by increasing the consistency and effectiveness of every stop.

Non-directional. The X-Gold Street Series Brake Rotor features a non-directional cross drilled and slotted design that eliminates the need for left and right discs, making installation simple and straight forward.

Kangaroo Paw Design. DBA's patented "Kangaroo Paw" ventilation design, runs cooler, stronger, and outperforms traditional straight vane vented disc rotors by up to 20%.

Application. This pair of DBA X-Gold Street Series Cross Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors are specifically designed to fit the front of the 2005-2010 GT and Bullitt Mustangs, as well as the 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs, does not fit Shelby GT500 models.

      so what is better ? the slotted or the drilled and slotted ?

      • It would really depend on what you are looking for out of the braking system. The slotted rotors help by slicing off a layer of the brake pad and providing a new cool and clear surface for braking. The drilled rotors help dissipate heat thus allowing for better braking. Drilled rotors however are more susceptible to cracking when compared to the slotted rotors. If you Mustang is a track vehicle, it would be recommended to use the drilled and slotted rotors for superior braking power and efficiency. If your Mustang is a daily driver with the occasional weekend driving and/or light racing events, then the slotted rotors should be sufficient.

          DBA X-Gold rotors!

          The quality is great and its design is superb. I compared with my old rotors, boy, it is by far better in quality and design! I love the sporty look because of black paint on it. It is slightly larger than my original rotors about 1/3 of inch.

          These rotors look great!

          I bought these rotors because my stock rotors were worn out. The cross drilled and slotted look is excellent! I can definititely tell that these rotors do not get as hot as my stock ones. Definitely a great buy!

          Great Rotors!

          These rotors work great! My oem rotors were needed replaced badly and I am glad that I chose these rotors. These look amazing and do a good job of stoping the car. I also installed the rear rotors a while back and now that the front and rear rotors match they look awesome. I do have to note that these rotors do not come in a gold color, but black. These rotor matched with the red mustang gt capliper covers gives my car an amazing look and I have had people as me if I put a big brake kit on the car.

          Nice Rotors

          These rotors look great on the car- I got them to help put that "BAM" in the look we were going for when changing out the stock GT wheels (see my images in customer photos"). First, I changed out the stock rotors for these great looking DBA gold seriese drilled / slotted rotors (set them up with a new set of Hawk Street Brake pads). Then I replaced the stock wheels with the Saleen Heritage chrome wheels. (POPPING EYES)- That made a huge difference in the overall appearence of the car. That being said, time to discuss performance- We are just gettin into the break-in period, but they seem to work pretty well. I was not overall impressed with breaking compared to the stock rotors (or the pads)- but it's not like I changed out the calipers. My functional reasoning for the purchase is the design for keeping the rotors cooler. I tend to be a little harder on my brakes than some might, so keeping the rotors from getting hot and warping is important. Considerations- If you want to change the appearence of your mustang and upgrade your brakes a little- this is the rotor for you. BUT, if you are looking for a BIG difference in braking, you should really be looking at a 6 piston brake upgrade kit. BOTTOM LINE- They are as advertised, look great, and I consider them to be worth the price. I would definitely buy them again- it was a great invesment.

          Nice upgrade

          These rotors fit perfectly in the place of OEM replacement rotors. The looks are amazing, especially when the rear rotors of this style are installed. Hawk ceramic brake pads work well with these, and allow for the car to come to a stop in a hurry without fade. Great upgrade, worth the cost!

          I got these pair of brake last month. It looks nice as yellow color and good finish. Especially the drilled design. However, it is pity that I had to leave for my own country 2 weeks ago so that I didn't put it on yet. I believe it will bring a better performance on brake.

          Thanks DBA & AM

          Brakes now grab well combined with the Hawk Ceramic pads. Big improvement over the stock rotors, definitely recommended. Nothing unusual with install
