Brake rotors

Looking to replace all 4 rotors and pads with Baer drilled and slotted rotors. Not sure what pads to go with. The rotors by Baer are a little pricey. Anyone know of a good setup for the price? Any suggestions or advice would be great.

Re: Brake rotors

hawk makes good pads dont they? Ive heard they have dust issues. Is this a track car or a daily driver?

It's a daily driver. But I'm not impressed with hawk pads. The stopping is good but there really noisy and a lot of vibration in the petal. I have drilled and slotted rotors with hawk pads and I just don't like it. The rotors aren't the greatest either. So I wanted to upgrade to something better. And do all 4 instead of just the front two.

With drilled and slotted rotors, you may not want a very hard ceramic pad. Try top line raybestos. They may wear out a little quickly but shouldn't damage the rotors. I've used those and Wagner pads.

Re: Brake rotors

SS lines will help provide a more firm and predictable pedal feel. Stock rubber lines will flex and expand to a certian degree and the SS lines remove that.

Changing over to a high performance brake fluid will provide a higher boiling point and also improve braking by increasing the amount of time it takes to 'boil' your brakes (pedal to the floor). This is really a track thing where you are heating up the brakes.

You will actual see a lot track people shy away from (especially drilled) and slotted rotors as they are more prone to cracking under extreme track conditions. If you are not going to track the car and like the looks, go for it.

Re: Brake rotors

For street use any of the rotors are good, they must meet FED spec's, Hawk pads are very good, i had 82,000 miles on my hawks and drilled, and slotted rotors. They performed great on and off the track. If your current setup has problems it maybe sticking calipers. I have fixed alot of brakes for customers and found that rust and dirt build up causes the caliper to stick

Re: Brake rotors

powerslot are good rotors. If you don't like the Hawks, you might want to look into the EBC brand.
