No pads "require" the use of slotted rotors. Slotted rotors offer the benefit of increased initial bite as well as giving the boundary layer of gasses and particles a place to go. They also maintain a fresh surface on the pads, eliminating pad glazing in exchange for a very minor penalty in pad life. Slotted rotors can provide these benefits, regardless of the pads you use on the track or on the street.
