I’ve been eyeing Stoptech Sport pads, anyone has any experience with them?

It's encouraging to see both Carbotech and G-loc pads being available through KNSbrakes.


FWIW, I never found the original HPS pads to be dusty at all (or in ~2010 and later years to have particularly good bite either). You only got dust from Hawks in HP+ and up, along with severe rates of rotor wear if you ran up very many street miles with them.

The lower grades of track pads from either Carbotech or G-loc (with numbers 6, 8, and 10) have bite similar to HP+, still dust about as badly as HP+, but are virtually as gentle on your rotors as the original HPS compound.

Noise is comparable to HP+, which can be minimized if you occasionally do some much harder stopping than what most normal street driving typically requires. Do check your mirrors for following traffic first.

I've been eyeing ebc rotors and yellowstuff pads for my 06 wrx. I loved ebc pads on my street bikes but I don't have any first hand experience with their car brakes. I've run hawk and stoptech in the past and didn't love or hate them. Anyone recommend ebc?

They were good pads on my daily. Theyve lasted a long time but didn't really stand out as anything super special. I'd buy them again if I wasn't looking for something more aggressive.
