    I agree upgraded slotted rotors (not drilled) have their benefits. Usually after market rotors are thicker,have better cooling technology (as you said),and slotted ones will keep dust and debris from staying between the pad and rotor. But the pad technology today (specifically the material used) creates much less gassing than pads of old/cheaper materials(asbestos). If your buying a good quality performance pad the off gassing effect is not an really an issue.
