Hello, I have a 2002 WRX with stock brakes that are pretty much gone. The car vibrates like crazy when I step on the pedal and there's no grab to the brakes at all. I'd like to do an upgrade to better disks and pads, but after reading through about 30 threads I have more options than I started with.
I drive my car pretty hard, 80-90 on the freeway, 40 in town, and 70 around corkscrews. I'm moving to LA, so I'm going to need some brakes that dissipate heat really well and can handle a lot of sudden braking and stop and go traffic. I'd like to keep it around $500 for all 4 wheels if at all possible.
Lately I've been resorting to engine braking a lot and I'm starting to feel it in the clutch. Some help would be greatly appreciated.
