Need ideas on brake lines and pads



2013 1le 8000 miles and still on original pads. Car is not a daily driver. To many choices on pads. The car will see track days. OEM pads are holding up fine. But can I upgrade to a better pad.

Are you saying you never saw this sub-forum where this is discussed almost every day?

Aren't the SS/1LE brakes already known for being rock solid on the track?

Yea the stainless supposed to give you a firmer pedal but OEM pads are hard to beat. Neither will make any huge difference in brake performance.

That's what I'm asking. Always good to get a fresh option. Never know. If I check a sub forum. Could be out of date. And yes OEM pads lasted and still going.

I am at 50k miles with stock 2010 SS pads and I have only really done some "spirited mountain" driving. From a performance standpoint as well as best overall pad, you really can't beat the OEM pads. I have seen multiple complaints about squeeking on the aftermarket pads, but I never really looked into the causes.

OEM pads are a good street friendly/entry level track pad, but any real track racer will out grow them. We suggest Hawk DTC 30 up front and HP + in the rear for track duty. The lines you listed are good, but you're paying about $90 extra dollars just to have them black. Look at Part # 12219 for a more cost-effective solution. Also don't forget to flush with some good DOT4 fluid. We use and recommend Motul RBF600.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

Carbotech 1521...they are as quiet as my stock pads were, the dust cleans off the wheels easier (and they dust less), and I have absolutely no complaints about their performance. They're awesome.

This is the guy to talk to. Just had him send me a brake upgrade package as well as my exhaust system about a month ago. Anytime I need something I give him a call & he gets me taken care of. Easy as pie.
