I'm not sure how much the Hawk pads dust but I bought some stoptech's from rsd a week or two back. the stoptech brake pads dust a ton and only stop well if they've been heated up first.

Go with the posiquiet.

I have the stoptech performance pads on my LGT and think the posiquiet would have been just as good.

I have the Posiquiets on my legacy. They're alright, but I liked my Hawk HPS pads better.

My HP+ didn't squeal until I tracked them, then they squealed like stuck pigs. They were really dusty too. Ferodo 2500 weren't as dusty but maybe more $. I liked the Ferodos a bit better because the initial bite was a bit more controllable at an autocross or track day. Ferodos were less dusty. Both lasted about the same.

I wasn't impressed with HP. I could get those things burning and smelly on my old CRX at the Snowcross in one lap (one, not too fast. lap) in the cold .

Please don't buy D-last rotors, if you compared them side by side to a set of OE spec rotors you'd quickly see why they're so cheap.

If you want a good over the counter rotor, then go buy a set of Bosch's.

I would do the opposite. Duralast pads with the lifetime replacement and good rotors. buy good pads for the track. No need to have hp or hp+ for your DD you shouldn't drive like an asshat to need them anyways

My rotors had some anti corrosive oil or something on them that I didn't wipe off seems to be braking fine though is that really a big deal?

Your pads got contaminated with the anti-rust coating. Once it burns off after a few miles you'll be fine.

But for future reference, you should use brake cleaner on new rotors before installing them.
