    I haven't tried real hard, but I still have a pair of new Brembo p/n 45437 slotted front rotors for sale. The only hitch is the cost to ship. The box weighs 27lbs and would ship from 67208. If you want to make me an offer you can PM me and I can send pics. From the application chart, they fit;
    '91 - '03 Escort all
    '97 - '03 Escort ZX2
    '92 - '95 Mazda MX-3 all
    '90 - '98 Mazda Protege all
    '91 - '99 Mercury Tracer
    They look like this only 4-lug:

    I wonder whether the slotted rotors are as bad about freezing to the calipers as the ones with holes are? Ice forms between the holes and the pads.

    I've never heard of such freezing. I don't even see how it would interact with the caliper at all, frozen or not, drilled/slotted or not.

    Me neither. I have drilled and slotted on all 4 corners of my Cadillac STS and never had a problem in 10 years.

    Helps to have front wheel drive. This was a problem last week ago with my motorcycle. Had to put the heat gun on the rotors for several seconds to free-up the front wheel. Parked it after a rain and was just trying to push it into the garage... wouldn't budge.

    Or ANY wheel drive.

    You didn't think to fire it up and move it under its own power?

    Surely that would break what little ice there could have been and made it a non-issue.

    If water is going to get in the holes and freeze, it's not going to affect anything since it'll still be the same distance from the pad. If it gets in the caliper itself, that doesn't have anything to do with whether the rotor has holes or slots.

    I could move the entire bike. Front wheel just slid....

    Needless to say, there's nothing to lock into with a smooth rotor. Virtually all brake pads are slotted in some fashion or other.

    Give me some credit for thought please. :p

    Your argument falls flat because there are a lot of crevices for water to get into and turn into ice beyond the rotor itself.

    This isn't a drilled/slotted rotor issue.

    That's a false statement and we'll agree to disagree.

    It wasn't an "argument" by the way... just laying out the circumstances. :)

    What's a false statement? Water can get in and freeze wherever it wants to. There's a gap between the pad and rotor. There are crevices in calipers. If it wants to be a problem, it will.
