I have centric blank rotors on my impreza and with hawk pads and it stops better than just about anything I have ever driven. It had the oem brakes on it before hand(58k miles) and the change was amazingly pleasing. Stops fast resists heat well and has thus far held up amazingly to my abusive driving. I have yet to cause the brakes to fade due to heat.
