Stoptech or EBX?

Looks like I'm getting new rotors and pads all the way around. I've found some pretty killer prices on autoanything.com and it looks like my choices are between stoptech with their street pad and drilled/slotted rotors and EBX with their rotors and I don't know which pads...

I would love some insight from anyone with experience. I drive a ZX5 SVT and it's a commuter/canyon carver. I will be doing autocross every now and then and plan on hitting Thunder Hill once or twice a year for track days. I run continental extremecontact dws in the winter and will be buying Michelin sport cups for the summer. I will for sure be switching to Dot 4 brake fluid and am thinking I may as well switch to stainless steal while I'm at it.

Thanks in advance,

Jordan

You dont really need drilled/slotted, usually they only help in the aesthetics department. A good solid rotor is usually going to perform better on our cars than a drilled/slotted. Id pair them with Hawk or Greenstuff pads.

also, its a great time to swap to ss lines too.

Hawk hps, shouldn't whine/screeth like full race pads. OEM rotors will perform better as your brakes won't get hot enough for drilled/slotted.



SS lines are cheap and and awesome upgrade too.
