Default Brake time

Okay I have did a search and came up with nothing. I need to get a new set of brake pads and rotors. My car is a dd and see's minimal track time. A couple of friends of mine saw sparks shooting from them as me and my buddy were racing. I plan on ordering these today so your help asap is appreciated.

I am looking at the hawk hps pads and brembo blank rotors. Should I consider drilled or slotted or any other pads?

Sounds like a solid setup, most drilled and slotted don't offer any substantial improvement, mainly cosmetic. The brembo blanks should perform better. Only thing is the brembo's aren't zinc coated, if you're looking for that. No rust with the zinc.

Not many, I think I contacted iRotors at one time about doing this, might try them out. More than likely will have to call or e-mail places, as many dont advertise blanks, mostly all drilled or slotted. Although they can usually do blanks.

How do they perform? So should I go with brembo blanks or ebc slotted?

Good quality blanks should be fine. I have Powerslot rotors and did not really notice any benefit from the slots. Going to ceramic pads is what made a difference. They have survived a lot of abuse, including 4 HPDEs, with no problems though.

I just painted the Brembos when I got them; works good if you can spare a day for the paint to dry.

I used high temp engine paint from autozone. Did the calipers at the same time. And the caliper bracket.
