LOOKING TO GET NEW BRAKES

OK, I am looking to replace my brake system. I want to change them to cross drilled and or slotted. I looked up Brembo and Stop Tech, they are just too expensive. Are there any brands you guys can reccoemend? My budget is 500-600 max.

No need for cross drilled or slotted.

Brembo blanks + your choice of pads.

Brembo blanks on ebay...hawk pads on ebay...Won't find brembo blanks for the rears (or i couldn't anyhow). centric rotors work great for me (they make stop-tech).

Slotted/drilled rotors look cool but really don't perform as well under "race car" conditions.


I highly recommend hawk hps pads.

You should get your keyboard fixed first.

As far as brakes go, hawk pads can't be beat for street use. As for rotors, take your pick, there are many good brands to choose from. I prefer powerslot rotors, meself.

Re: LOOKING TO GET NEW BRAKES

Yeah I agree that drilled and slotted is pointless, drilled cracks and slotted don't last very long...still more than drilled though.

If you want a good street pad I recommend EBC Ultimax, heaps of brake dust but they bight so hard for the money, easily twice as good as stock.

I prefer powerslot rotors as well. I actually just bought some with hawk pads, although I haven't taken them for a drive because I found a coolant leak..
