Those rotors, in your opinion, are more for easthetics, or performance?

Mines not SCed so maybe different for me.

Really the brembos are fine for the amount of power I will have. I'ts the wheels that have a bigger impact on braking under normal driving conditions.

So, for your 22's I'd definitely consider that kit or one like it. It's a nice compromise from going all out to a big brake upgrade kit. I spoke to the guys at Brembo at the PRI show and they didn't have any upgrades for the camaro at that time... And just like with the Bear upgrade it was gonna be a lot more expensive than what Stillen is offering. But it was a true brake system upgrade not just rotors.

The rotor and pad and Stainless brake lines will be a nice improvement and will look good to without breaking the bank.

How long ago did you talk to Brembo?

And I doubt I'd have any real need to upgrade the entire system. I'd say this one would be 70% cosmetic and 30% performance for my set up. For now anyway. Of course you're the expert.

But this is about YOUR car. So would you consider this set up?

I would... but since my wheels will probably weigh about the same as stock (guessing) this is a nice compromise. But I'm gonna leave my brakes alone for now. But I will keep this kit on my list of future to do's

They'll only benefit you in performance if you're racing.

Otherwise, it's aesthetics.

Alone...the weight won't do much for acceleration, wheels are what you want to tackle for that. But under repeated, hard braking -- the slots and cross-drills will help heat and gasses escape from between the pad and rotor reducing fade, and at the same time..."resurface" the pad constantly, improving the brake's bite for the next stop or decel.

I know you didn't ask for my opinion...psh....but I wanted to butt in anyways. :bellyroll:
