    Buy ceramic pads, you will be much happier. No wheel dust. Dont skimp on brakes on a car capable of running 150 mph. Just my .02.

    I use bendix pads on everything I have. I just bought the slotted and drilled ebay rotors and have no complaints with them. Not bad rotors for $180 shipped for all 4.

    OK, first off is this upgrade just becuase you want to or are you noticing braking issues? Baer are great but you are not going to find them cheap very easily. Like the others have been saying though get good pads and one easy thing is to put the braided brake lines on. Makes the brakes more firm and slightly faster to react since they don't expand as much under pressure. As far as calipers I am running low 11's in the 1/4 and currently still have the stock calipers.

    Good performance brakes for open tracking are what I have on my Cobra: StopTech 13" front brake kit (4-piston calipers, slotted 2-piece rotors, steel-braided lines) with Porterfield R4 race pads and Steeda brake ducts, and at the rear I have Porterfield R4S pads on stock brakes.Talk about fade-free stopping power!

    ceramic pads, bleed the brakes, and thats all you should really need as long as the rotors are good

    I was asking because I need new brakes all around and I was wondering what would be the best choice?
