Rotors

I wanna improve my cobras brake performance i wanna stay away from cross drilled rotors I've read they are not good when under heavy use i take it to the track sometimes and hit the curvy roads with my friends every now and then I wanna stick with blank rotors if not go with slotted but if i go with blanks what's a good pad to use? I'll also be looking into break lines as well

Rotors won't really affect your braking performance. Higher quality rotors may be quieter, shed heat better, or last longer, that's about it. Staying away from drilled is a good call. Slotted vs blanks is personal preference. I think blanks create a little bit less dust, slotted may help a little bit in heavy rain.

A good all-around pad is the Hawk HPS 5.0.
If you road course the car, that is a whole different ballgame.

Drag racing doesn't really heat them up to the point of fade, you're only stopping once then they have plenty of time to cool. The HPS 5.0 should be good. My friend just got them on his 650rwhp vortech car and likes them.

Braided lines will improve pedal feel. I like to use Raybestos rotors and have always had very good performance from them. Get them from Rockauto or Amazon. For pads I use Centric Posi Quiet. Zero dust and they stop great.


After you do the lines and do the pads/rotors do a full power bleed on the whole system and you should be good.


Since you already have a Cobra, you have pretty good brakes already but if you wanted to upgrade past this prepare to spend $1500-$2k.
