After a lot of fast driving including a couple track days, I have gone through two sets of front pads and one set of rear. The rotors are still going strong, though I may replace the front rotors soon because the slots are almost worn smooth. But there is still no vibration or warping. It''s amazing they can take the abuse and stay true.

Buy the Goodridge G-stop brake lines with caution. My Honda brake lines were 18 years old, and I thought I should replace them. The Goodridge G-stop brake lines were about the same price as the Honda Civic lines, so I thought I would upgrade them with the G-stop. Bad idea. There were many problems with the components. This one is important, when I torqued the new G-stop banjor bolt into the caliber, the bolt head snapped off. I used 24 ft-lb because it was the maximum rating on the package. Honda specifies 25 ft-lb. Tire Rack''s Penny was very helpful in getting me new parts, but Goodridge via e-mail dropped their torque specification to 12 min and 18 ft-lb max. I think they are not using the highest grade bolt material. They also used plastic brackets instead of the metal ones Honda used. Worst, they did not supply the third bracket. I had to open up the old one, remove it from the old line, and put it on the new line. I had to bend the bracket open, and while it s weaker now, it probably will work. I hope. The G-stop lines feel a little more solid, less spongy. But I have little confidence in the design and quality of the G-stop components, and I wished I had not purchased them. May your order be better.

Brembo has the best stock rotor replacement for my BMW 325i. Perfect for track work. No problems with warping, wear. Highly recommend them. Great performance and even better price.

No fasteners to anchor the front brake lines so my mechanic had to safety wire them to the bracket. The rear setup on my 2005 Golf TDI has a rubber line connected to a hard line and then another rubber line at the caliper. The G-Stop includes a braided line for the first section but no braided line in the kit for the connection between the hard pipe and caliper; thus this kit is incomplete.



Pedal is firmer but still needs to be bled again even though a power bleeder was used.

If you own a Mercedes Benz, you should buy these pads. I have the sport package on my car with the four piston front brakes. From the factory, these brakes work beautifully. What drives me crazy is that the brake dust is terrible. One drive around the block and you have to clean the wheels again. The pads from Akebono are ceramic and are much cleaner. I am very impressed. After one thousand miles, they are quiet, NVH free, and the wheels are still clean. That''s right - still clean. I combined the pads with Goodridge SS braided brake hoses and cross-drilled rotors from Royalty Rotors of Santa Clara, CA. The brake performance is as good as original if not slightly better. I couldn''t be happier with the result. Buy these pads!

The brake lines need a little extra bending to fit.

Rotors: Centric Cryo-Stop Rotor

December 28, 2009

Had Centric Cryo Rotors installed. Seated pads per manufacturers instructions.Logged about 400 miles before using rotors for two track days. Car developed front end shudder on severed braking from high speeds. Front end suspension components all sound. Think that one of the cryo rotors developed some warpping. Need to check out further as problem doens''t exist at normal braking speeds. Purchased cryo rotors to avoid this problem. Not very pleased with performance currently.

Stock Honda Pilot brake pads are insufficient for a heavy SUV this size. I swapped out the OEM Honda pads for EBC Greenstuff and felt an immediate improvement in brake response, but the most amazing was the reduction in braking distance compared to stock.



There are many reports of people who had bad experience with aftermarket pads but my experience has been positive. No brake squeels, make sure you apply red-silicon specifically made to reduce squeeks on the back of the pads before you install. And more importantly, break-in the pads appropriately and then they will function perfectly. The EBC Green pads only lasted 30,000 some miles but it was well worth it. I just bought HAWK Ceramics to replace the EBC-Greens.

Bought these for street use. Dissapointed right away with initial bite around town. I do not even push hard! Dust was no better than OEM. Then I made the mistake of taking them to the track (Roebling) for a DE. Braking was bad through just one session on a pretty brake-friendly track. I drove the car to the hotel that night and thought I wouldn''t stop at all! Scary. Next morning, changed them out.

2004 Corvette with Bridgestone RE11''s. I did 1 HPDE at Road America last fall. Cold wet day. Impressed with tires and brakes. Huge difference over the HPS. Dust and noise is up, but preformance is worth it. I change back to the HPS/rotors for the street. My choice not to buy again is based on track only use not the pads. I''ll go to DTC 60&70s.
