Thumbs up Goodridge WRX brake lines (on an RS) Ceramic brake pads

Nobody had or could soon get RS braided steel lines, so I bought Goodridge WRX lines from Flatline motorsparts. Had to slightly dremel the holes through the front struts for the fitting in the center of the line to sit flush so the clamp would go on. On the rear lines, I had to cut off a small nipple with a roll pin in it that lines up the line on the WRX calipers. The RS calipers use a cast-in set of towers to position the line. The line bolts to the rear struts rather than passing through the bracket. Length is correct. All fittings are correct. Bleeding is no problem.

Ceramic brake pads Bought at NAPA, they are Raybestos Brute Stop in a NAPA box. About $50.

Pedal travel is much less now. No more spongy feeling during hard braking. Brake performance similar to stock when brakes are cold, especially during light braking. Hard braking, or hot brakes, the car stops on a dime and gives you $1.85 in change. Stock, I couldn't get the ABS to activate on a dry road if the tires were warm. Now I can barely get the ABS to not activate under the same conditions.

This is how the stock brakes should have worked.

You couldn't get the abs to kick on warm tires?
Thats not right..... I do it on stock pads all the time (except when my R compounds are on)....

Occasionally it would, but on good clean asphalt with warm tires it usually would not, or would activate only for a second. Now the Abs activates until the car is to a stop.
