I want to buy new rotors pads and brake lines can anyone tell me which would be the best FOR THE MONEY. Im looking for a good upgrade without draining the bank. I know of a few brands but I just want to know what you guys would use and which brands to stay away from. Thanks
I got a good deal from Racingbrake.com on 2-piece slotted rotors all around, Hawk HPS pads and Goodridge lines. Ended up $1400 and change shipped. The solid disks would obviously be quite a bit less. I like my set up and although I don't have real-world data I can tell that the brakes have improved in response, feel and fade resistance. The stock calipers and master cylinder work very well together and I think it's pointless to replace those unless you need a track-proven setup.
VIP Garage sells a nice, inexpensive kit that I use on my own car for racing and daily driving. It includes slotted rotors, Hawk pads, Super Blue ATE fluid, and SS lines. I don't think you need anything fancy. If these work for me at my level of racing, then I think they'd work fine for you, too.
I use the HP+, since they are the most aggressive pad from Hawk that are still considered worthy for the street. I use them for all venues, and they work nicely for me. I believe the rotors from the kit are made by Centric.
Gruppe S Sells a nice brake kit for 700. Slotted rotors, SS brake lines, fluid and a choice of pads. Better pads will cost a bit more, and I think they were running a deal for like 599 for the kit a little bit ago. Yup I just checked here's the link
josh thanks for the site. I find it better then lancer shop and JSC. I am definitely going to be purchasing the Stage 2+ Evo Brake Package, 700 bucks for all of that! Now I am just trying to have breaks plus beat out mitsubishi's labor charges. Mitsu wanted over 300 for labor. I have no clue how to install breaks I just want the best for the car. 900 vs 1700 on what Mitsubishi wanted is bad ass! I will also be going to that site to purchase other items in the future. Thanks again.
Coevopower, Thanks also for the post your information was way helpful. I am going to purchase the Hawk HPS pads that come with the combo offered at Gruppe-s.com.
