hmmm i've never come across that myself but heres a link to some new ones

don't buy crossdrilled rotors tho... in my opinion i find that they shatter too often.. just stick with slotted and you'll be right

you could also try just changing to supra turbo rotors and calipers but i would imagine they are identical... possibly your pads aren't up to the job, also try bleeding your whole system and put in new brake fluid

let us know how you get on

i think the problem with cross drilled rotors are the ones that are normal rotors, that then get drilled. the ones that are built as cross drilled are designed to be that way, the others are not, and so weaken the disk. the problem going to big after market brakes are that they do not have dust covers built in, and so need to be stripped and reconditioned often. best bet would be to find some bigger oem ones, like calipers and rotors off of a lexus ls400 (4 pot). need custom mounts made for them though, and will need to be certed, but will leed less attention than aftermarkets.

suze is right though, i think the n/a mk3's run the earlier brake setup, which has the smaller calipers and rotors. upgrade to the later mk3 turbo ones, and if the brakes feel spongy after this, also upgrade your brake booster, as they might be different as well.

getting crossdrilled rotors will help stopping efficiency greatly. i've never heard of a cast crossdrilled rotor. i'd get a quality set of cross drilled rotors and properly seat them. you have to follow the intallation process properly, otherwise they will crack. my father has a set of mid-grade ones one his race car (9.06 in the 1/4mi) and they havent cracked yet. gone thru a few pads, but they're still good.
....all you need is a small taste of success and you will find it suits you....

Stillen makes a big brake kit for the MKIII supra, check in out at Stillen.com. Big brake kit made by brembo. A cheaper option is to go with x drilled rotors and a good quality pad.

You only need to worry about cracking drilled rotors if you road race your car. In drag racing you stop once. Its the build up of extreme heat and cooling that'll crack em. I orderd 13" Baers for my chevelle crossdrilled(looks) and slotted, they look amazing! A road racer in my area says drilled are fine for street use and autocross. I'm not saying you wont or cant crack em on the street, but to do this I think you'll have to drive very poorly or buy very cheap rotors.
