EBC Stage 5 brake kit
 
never had slotted, never been a fan, never thought it was worth it.

But I said the same thing about other things and have proven myself wrong recently.....Lets hope these work well.

Big thank you to Marco at 4WP Chula Vista for doing the homework on these. Lets not forget hes still all about customer service, no matter where he works!

I run a EBC slotted rotors and switch between yellows and reds on my WRX. Incredible difference from stockers. Bedding process is very important. They sound like absolute hell until they are bedded, but imho they are well worth the small investment (compared to stock and other blanks) .

Nope, I have no 1/4 tracks or even 1/8 tracks near me, and Im not gunna auto x in it due to no swaybar and 2" lift with at tires..

I am an aggressive driver (within common sense and all applicable laws) tho.

I HAVE brembo blanks now and have run them for about 2yrs with hawk pads on this and when I had my 3rd gen maxima. I never faded them before, but the supercharger brought some weak spots to light in my current setup.

gotcha, the hawks have a bed in process too, and Im def familiar with it and the HORRIBLE stopping distances when the bedding compound hasnt been broken in/worn off. Its amazing how shitty some pads work without some serious bedding.

Hoping to see/feel a nice improvement, although I imagine the true colors wont show for close to a good 500+ miles.

axxis metal masters were the same too......terrible stopping for a while.
