Default Did you guys know we have a local brake company?

My evo friends introduced me to this place and they are located in Bellingham. I know they are not know widely in the subaru community yet. They make ALOT of parts for subarus and they have alot of parts in production right now as well. I talked to Martin, the owner, for awhile and I am pretty excited about the new WRX/STI parts they have coming out. My wife purchased a stage 2 kit for her 05 Legacy and she loves it. Their magic pads eliminated her brake dust issue. If you want you can check out the review we wrote in the review section. Anyways you guys should check them out they are really great guys. www.girodisc.com

Haha, if you like that we will soon be offering a hotter pad for track use and we plan to call them "Girodisc Maxi Pads".

Thank you very much for the kind comments suddenthomas, it was a pleasure.

I was just giving you crap. I looked into getting OE parts, but they were crazy expensive from the dealer. When I looked into stoptech they didnt make any stage kits, so I was trying to show other legacy owners we had more options

I just got my girodisc parts installed. I have their prototype 2 piece (front and rear) rotors on my evo X. They also designed some sort of bracket that allows the evo X's to use the Evo 8/9 rear pads. Martin is a really smart guy he went to Western for the automotive engineer degree. If I remember correctly he helped design the porshe carrera GT brakes.

Anyways back on topic, I know this isnt a subaru but you get the idea

Do you guys offer something equivalent to the Hawk HP+ pads for the 03-05 WRX front application?

I put ceramic pads on my dakota because the guy at napa said they wouldn't dust. Those things COATED my wheels every couple hundred miles or so.

My stock pads were the same way, plus the stock enkies (sp?) had alot of spokes so I never wanted to clean them.

Our magic pads are good all around street pads. Comparable to the HPS. If you want something a little more aggressive the Axxis Ultimates would be the way to go but they will make more dust and squeak so anti-noise shims would be recommended.

Thanks for the info! Noise is not a concern, I'm looking for the most aggressive pad I can get away with and still safely daily drive the car.

Yeah they don't offer anything crazy for the 03-05 WRX. EBC Has some stuff but I too had an 04 Wagon with Ultimates before I swaped for Brembos and they got the job done.

Any word on a 2 piece rear rotor for the STI? I've heard mention that you guys are making one, but then again I also heard back in December that it was not going to happen. I was just looking for the final word on whether or not it was actually going to happen. Thanks!

Yes are in the process of making a 2 piece rotor for the rear. We had previously decided to stop development due to there not being enough room to have the mounting hardware fit between the caliper and the parking brake. We would have had to make the wall that the parking brake clamped to thinner and we didn't want to sacrifice safety. However we have found another way to solve this problem and are currently test fitting the prototype to make sure everything is up to par. Then we will start with road testing and shortly there after release them to the public. We are very excited to get this project completed.

Well I have been in need of having to replace my pads for quite some time now and will probably purchase the Stage 2 w/ Axxis Ultimates package that you have on your site.

My main concern though is how much of a beating the rotors can take (cracking, snapping, warping) in the extreme heat of Arizona especially when doing some spirited driving and on a road course.

Noise and brake dust does not concern me at all.

We used slotted rotors because they are far less prone to cracking then cross drilled rotors. These rotors should last you a long time as long as you are following proper "bed in" procedure with your pads. Your pads are the main cause for burning up rotors and the Axxis pads are great pads and they don't eat up your rotors much at all.
