    Question brakes?

    Can anybody tell me what are the best performance brakes out their? What are the prices and were can you find them? Also if they come in a kit, like the four rotors ,calipers, etc, etc. I have a couple of boltons, but plan to put about 600 to 700 hp in the next couple of months coming up.

    I run right around 530RWHP...although I don't believe power makes that much of a difference if you drive sane.

    Will be purchasing Brembo blank rotors and Delco pads. Maybe Hawk pads if I have the cash.
    Upgrade to stainless steel lines and new fluid.
    And I will stop just fine.

    get the Porsche kit like I have... will make it slow down fast.
    if you find it too pricey, best bang for the buck is the Vette upgrade.
