Thumbs up StopTech Stage II kit for WRX

$499.

>Front and Rear directional slotted rotors. Hats and edges painted in high temp gloss black. Rotors have straight vanes (front). Stock size.
>Front and Rear SS brake lines. Nice Teflon and weaved stainless with a clear coating on the lines. Marked DOT. New banjo bolts, washers and bleeder nipple caps.
>Front and Rear Axxis Ultimate pads. My personal street favorite. Easy bedding, quiet and not too much dusting.
>Three bottles (3.xx pints total) Motul RBF600 brake fluid.

A smoking good deal from StopTech. Easy upgrake to stock system.

Would like to post pics, I did some extra things while I was in there (VHT Black calipers/carriers, removed dust shields, etc.).

The only thing that does not come with the kit is PTex Brake quiet (the blue spray) and high-temp lube for the pad clips.

All comes in a 63 pound box from Torrance, CA. Shipped to Ohio 3 day FEDEX was $80. I had the box in two days.

Can't say enough good stuff about this package.

A follow-up:
I just spent an afternoon on some of the southern ohio back roads, coming into 15mph turns way too hot, and braking way too late -but the brakes were spectacular, no fade, no noise. Very easy to modulate.

The Axxis pads have turned out to be quite dusty when driven on cold. Once they heat up, they seem to throw less dust (or maybe less dust is able to settle, can't figure out which...)

The stock pads are pretty dusty too, so what the heck, eh! Thanks for the review!

I just got back from a 6 day, 4200 mile jaunt to Vegas after installing my stage 2. First thing I noticed was how much these pads dust. It was amazing. My front wheels were covered with brake dust right as I got to Vegas. But let me tell you, these brakes are excellent. There are many, many winding roads on the way to and from Vegas. These brakes stopped strong with very little noise and little to no fade at all. I highly recommend them, just be forewarned about the brake dust.

Wow this thread is old, I didn't want to start a new one though. I was wondering about the Durability of these stoptech stock size replacement rotors. the price seems right but how are they as far as durability ? I already have stainless lines and im thinking to run EBC Red pads on them, any experiences ?

im on almost 25k miles on the same setup and just recently replaces the pads...ive NEVERRRRRR got a single sound from the brakes...i didnt get the rotors resurfaced or anything, just threw on the new pads and like new again!

awesome upgrade over stock. pedal feel is increased and they dont over heat nearly as fast as the stockers do
