Excellent Pads!!!



HPS PADS FRONT AND REAR WITH ATE SLOTTED ROTORS FRONT AND REAR



Very little fade and awesome braking power. Braking a little weak when cold but warms up quickly. VERY DUSTY!!! After one week(700+ Miles) dust is so thick that it needs vigorous scrubbing to remove from wheels. The slotted rotors propably don''t help the dust issue. OVERALL - GREAT PRODUCT.

Very positive first impression after swapping out stock pads/rotors for Hawk HPS pads & Power Slot cryo treated rotors. Stopping power appears better than stock (which was good to begin with), no noise, no vibrations, and very little brake dust. Good Choice!

Rotors: ATE PremiumOne Slotted Rotor

September 04, 2009

This review is for the ATE Rotors as the Hawk HPS pads have always been awesome, especially when paired with Brembo blank rotors. The Brembo rotors weren t available so I thought I would give the ATE s a try. These rotors look great out of the box due to the anti-rust coating but that same coating has turned into a bad glazing, low brake bite situation. In the first hundred miles they were good as the coating has some gritty consistency to it but the pads just cannot break through to the softer metal now. Cold they are even worse. I will try roughing them up with a wire wheel but I wish I had waited for the Brembos.

I am extremely happy with the Hawk HPS pads. The stock pads just weren '' giving the initial bite I was wanting- the HPS to do. They have the bite, but they are not grabby. There is dust, but it is minimal. If you take even decent care of your car, you won''t even notice the dust. I don''t do track days so I can''t really comment on fade.

I am very satisfied with these brake pads, I would say they are equal to or better than the factory brembo pads that came on the car. I have had no brake noise after the first 20 break-in miles. Dust on the wheels is average. They seem to be very responsive even when they''re cold and stop well.

I purchased the Cryo rotors because I thought that they would be more resistant to warping. However, after only a few miles, I am getting pulsation in the brake pedal. Perhaps this is due to some warping in the stock rear rotors, but I doubt it. I am surprised by this result.

Rotors: Power Slot Power Slot Rotor

August 19, 2009

Combined the Power Slot rotors with Hawk HPS pads and couldn''t be more happier. An amazing upgrade from stock brakes. Nowhere near as noisy as I thought they would be and haven''t really noticed a dust problem, albeit they''ve only been on a short while. A really tough looking appearance under the chrome wheels. Installation was easy, everything fit perfectly and from the moment I opened the box (which came one day after ordering, by the way) I could sense the quality in these parts. Checked rotors with dial indicator before install and they were dead on. Followed bed in procedures and now I have a system that will slow me down as fast as I speed up. Excellent choice and excellent service from TR!
