Default New Brakes: dba 4000 with Project Mu B-Force pads

I needed new pads a few weeks ago, so I thought it was a good time to do new rotors and lines. I choose dba's slotted 4000 series front and rear, Project Mu's B-Force pads, Technafit's SS lines, and Super Blue fluid. I know some of you get way more serious than this, but for driving to work, it works just fine. She stops incredibly quick even when cold; not too hard of an initial bite for the streets, but a little more pressure bring things to a halt fast. A little more dust than I was hoping for, but still less than stock. A slight hint of squeal when the pressure is very light, but it's not really bad or unmanageable. Overall, I'm quiet happy with the setup so far.





Many thanks to JoeBud for answering a few dumb questions.

It is crazy how much of a difference pads,lines,fluid help stock wrx brakes. I think that should be one of the first mods for any suby owner.

No doubt, thanks. The B-Force is a street pad: http://www.project-mu.co.jp/e/product/b-force.html

Aside from rotor friendliness, I also wanted something that was good when cold. How bad was the cold stopping power with the race compound? I've never run a track compound, so I don't know how bad they get.

watch those project mu's. i've had multiple friends with suby's and evos run them, and they killed rotors and didn't perform for the money.

The b-forces? What rotors? Good to know. Yea, I'll keep an eye on them; micrometer in the garage just for that purpose. Have some friends with bmws and 350s who had great experiences with them. I guess there is someone always having a bad time with something and vice versa. Either way, isn't all this for fun? Worn rotors mean I get to replace them again.
