I'm getting a headache from all of it. I got millions of options and variables to consider in what kinda setup to get for brakes.

Steel, Iron, Ducting, slotted, drilled (different types of drilled holes), angles, number of holes, types of slots, coating,


blah and pads and calipers?

this is too much to learn.

Ok do the research it will pay off. To start off some slotted rotors and ceramic or semi-metalic pads will help your braking dramatically. As well as a bleed of the system. Drilled and Slotted rotors are a bit weaker because they holes in them rotor make it weak. I have ceramic pads and I like them, I also have slotted rotors and they perform awesome. I like Powerslot, they are a great brand and there rotors hold up awesome, Hawk are good pads. Some other brands you might wanna try are SSBC and EBC.

Not sure what your car has on it for calipers but if they have calipers upgrades from Wilwood, Brembro that would be a major upgrade, those are usually dual piston or even more and you probably have single piston design.

I noticed plenty of brake fade in front so I got suspicious. Was when I was blaring down the mountain.

When I got back to Billings the front right rotor was cracked.

Drilled cooled off pretty good and kept up but they cracked.

I'll keep the drilled/slotted rotors in the rear.

I'll go slotted only and find some bigger disks and calipers. I'll probably get stainless steel rotors and metallic pads.

Hondatech has a great write up on this in the tech section for upgrading brakes. the biggest improovment for braking will be what pads you put on it.
I will reccommend Carbotech pads with the biggest rotors you can get on the setup.

Check out Fastbrakes on the internet too.... They have caliper bracket adaptors for fitting bigger stock calipers.

Yes I want the strongest fattest rotors on the market. and Carbon pads if possible.

I'm willing to spend some change on brakes.

Well I don't have $2000 for Stoptech, Ksport, Brembo, Wilwood or the like....so.

And 4-12 piston calipers with 14" would be nice.

I'll just go with Powerslot and EBC Ultimax. now I just need $600.
