EBC brakes

Hey guys and girls, has anybody upgraded their rotors and pads to the EBC product and what do you think?

I did the pads and rotors in the front, then I got the Granatelli rears with EBC pads and honestly they look identical. The price EBC wanted for the rears was ridiculous.

I can understand the price point being a bit high but, I had EBC pads and slotted/dimpled rotors on my last car that was boosted. I was a roll race type person and would brake boost regularly. Despite quick pad wear, my rotors were not the slightest bit warped and lasted till parted out the car. IMO they work damn well.

Centric Rotors from Tire Rack are what I have used for all my cars. My brother used them for AutoX and my buddy used them on his EVO for autoX as well. Held up really well and cant beat the price.

Appreciate your input, more than likely going to go with the EBC, but after my road trip here in July.....save some money for that!

Anybody use ebc blue stuff on the stock rotors for occasional track use? I hear that ebc causes the DBA rotors to crack and wondered if the stock ones have the same problem.
