Do you track the car at all or is it a daily street car?

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.

Another brake question on the same topic

I just got back from mitsubishi and looks like I need new pads and rotors. I was priced at 1700 for parts and labor. After looking on line I see that I can get Both front and rear Hawk HPS Brake pads for 159.95 see link: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8, 9 Turbo Performance Parts EVO VIII, IX - Hawk HPS Front + Rear EVO Brake Pads COMBO DEAL

I found that rotors are less expensive at JSCSpeed.com for slotted rotors I can get front and rear for 548. Go under brakes then rotors.

Can anyone please help me out and let me know if these are good quality parts and prices. Appreciate the help.

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

KW Variant3 $1849! Swift Spring & Swaybar $725! Stoptech Rotors+Pads&Lines F&R $599! - evolutionm.net

and another link to all of their brake packages

I used Stikiller.com, my bill came out to be $1300 shipped, with 2 sets of front and rear hawk hps pads, Stop tech Slotted rotors front and rear, and stop tech steel braided lines, front and rear.

My brekes respond quicker, and faster, feel is better, and I dont do much racing, strip at times, and just ur normal day driving, and sometimes slowing down from high speeds, but I like em alot.

Site is BAD ASS

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.

Thanks again guys!
