SLotted rotors and drilled which brand? steel braided line?

I saw a great article on painting the calipers and I need a brake job. So Figured I would do it all at once.

So a Few questions...

Which brand or company biggest bang for the buck on Rotors drilled and slotted that actually work and look good?

Who's braided SS brake lines?

I kinda figure Hawk pads probably cheapest and best..

Basically who's the cheapest on the rotors that still going to perform, not warp, and look good!

Check out R1Concept rotors, Racing Brake braided brake lines, and Hawk HPS pads on our website. That will be a major upgrade without breaking the bank.

I like the look of the Brake Performance dimpled & slotted rotors. Plus they come with a lifetime warranty against cracking & warping.

Yeaterday i installed Powerstop drilled and slotted rotors w ceramic pads... Got them for $370 shipped from autoanything.com for all four corners and they feel better than my r1 concepts premium dimpled and slotted rotors with hawk ceramic pads...my r1 concepts warped with in 500 miles of regular driving and they had a loud wooshing noise when i stopped and drove next to a wall...very happy with my "cheap" brake swap.

It sounds like a lot of them warp or break! I think maybe Baer maybe the way to go.. Seems like the best price for a well known name..

$510 for all four..

Ok Hawk pads but I didn't realize there where so many!

my application would be daily driving and 1 to 2 times a year got with club to a race course..

which would I need for the Hawk or other brands?

Also the russell brake lines that are SS for 50.00 cheaper are they ok?

For daily driver with light track use the OEM rotors and pads will be you best choice.

If you road course hard, not often, but hard, there is only one choice for brake pads -- Cobalt Friction. They are filthy dirty, squeal like a stuck pig and flat out work.

Stay stock or go CF.

Running this same exact setup. My local performance shop loved the rotors and enjoyed how easy the stainless steel brake lines installed. I totally recommend this setup. You can contact APEX or the R1 Concept rep, that's a forum member, directly .

Have you seen the Hurst Racing Brake front and rear rotor kits? Hurst only produced 20 sets of these "race ready" rotor kits and they are being offered exclusively on Camaro5.com!

I had a pair of those installed on the front of my Silverado Crew Cab. Very durable and never had any issues with them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again for everyday street use.

Thanks everyone for the help I went with BAER because the history and they stand behind there parts.

Here's how it turned out.. The SS line by Russell were spot on as well easy to install 50.00+ lower priced that the other 2 makers Granetelli and GOodridge. they mounted in stock locations and all ne hardware.

The rotors are awesome! direct bolt on..

The Hawk Pads bedded good and operate noise free which is a lot better than the stock ever were!

Had the time to paint calipers to!

those new Hurst race rotors are sick looking. Im sure they are pricey, but a 2 piece modular rotor that can be turned unlike most and designed for track use is serious. You will save some $ in the long run by being able to "turn" these rotors. Weight savings as well and with SCCA type crews using them , stands to reason they are tor drawer for some of us hard core road course guys
