Help, not sure which to buy

Postby peteleetzor » Tue Jan 21, 2014 1:47 am

Hey guys,

Check recently both rotors and pads needs to be replaced.

I was wondering what are some good replacement for rotors.

I was thinking about getting drilled and slotted ones on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/281034471582
or the brembo replacement blanks
http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brakes.jsp?make=Brembo&model=Replacement+Rotor&group=Replacement+Rotor&partNum=B25440&autoMake=Toyota&autoModel=Celica+All-Trac&autoYear=1993&autoModClar=,
but can only find them it for the front and not the rear? :shrug:

As for the brake pads,

Im thinking about going with EBC greenstuff all the way around. Is this good or are there better/cheaper alternative.

While im at it, anyone have stainless steel lines for sale? I want to just upgrade the brake system all in one go. 8)

id like to see a comparison between the two.
are you really getting extra performance from those drilled and slotted rotors
and compared to the brembo blanks is there anything to help performance wise other than the name..

i have seen a forum somewhere that compares drilled to slotted..

Brembo blank on the front + Stop Tech Street pads

OEM blank + Hawk HP plus for the rear

(I also added SS brake line)

couldn't be happier :D

Will running different pads in front vs rear make them wear out differently?

Im gonna get the slotted/drilled rotor. I want something to compare to.

My choice for a DD would be stock rotors, upgraded med level pads (I like Hawk and Porterfields) and last but most important is a better tire compound.
