How come the brembo blanks grip better than the stock blanks?

it's mostly the new axxis brake pads doing the increase in grip, but the brembo rotors are a high carbon disc that can better dampen vibration which improves comfort and performance. also they are much better ventilated which reduces heat. heat means more brake fade.

Arith has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Exclamation

get rears before you buy a big upfront brake kit. You feel better stopping performance from rears than big brakes upfront.

ill never go back to just front backs again, to many headaches (stupid car crash).

Oh yeah, BREMBO ownz!

they may be plain looking, but plain blank rotors are the best for shortening braking distance.

and yes, brembo is awesome!

slotted rotors (power slot) are for looks only. they will actually increase stopping distance a little too, it will take longer to stop (probably only a little bit). they have some cooling and some ability to get rid of gasses that can build between the rotor and brake pads, but if you don't race, this isn't something you would worry about anyway.
if you just want brakes that will work pretty well and not worried about looks, go with Brembo blanks. If you want brake rotors that look nice, get some power slots.

p.s. - hawk pads are good. hawk, axxis, cobalt and porterfield are the better pads out there. you get what you pay for.

I think its good that you got the blanks and not the cross drilled. I think those would have unnecessarily ate your pads. Its good you upgraded the fronts since they do the majority of the stopping.

exactly..why not? if you fork out that kind of dough for brembo, you might as well buy slotted or drilled.

because i'm looking for performance rather than looks.
$29.99 each isn't all that much if you ask me anyway.


and to answer a previous question, yeah, today i notice a tiny squeek. but it was very quiet and only at higher speeds (60 mph). that was the first time i heard a squeek by haven't heard it since. i love my new brakes

slots or holes were really nice in the fifties when all the brake pads had gassing problems but our pads dont do that. The slots are also really good in the dirt for cleaning the pads but they suck for pad life. so to stop quickly and get decent pad life blank is better. Someday I'll get off my lazy *** and build the brake cooling kit I'v been dreaming up for the last two years and then you can all have a brake mod that actualy does something

don't you have to recaliberate the breaking pressure to them in the computer??? a friend told me that you need to, since you had drums in the rear, the amount of pressure going to the rear brakes needs to be adjusted... is this true???

i just got back from driving it, breaking them in. they feel nice. i feel some good gripping going on. and best of all, no more screeching brakes. the verdict:

TIP of advice... after driving and breaking in the brakes, DO NOT touch the rotors... i accidentally put my palm on the rotor when i was re-torquing everything making sure it was all tight and now i have a huge burn on my hand, ouch! but hey... you haven't christened the car until you've bled and burned yourself working on it.

i'm talking about the front brakes, however, there is a thread talking about how you do not need to have a the brake proportioning valve off of the acura el. it's just a direct bolt on for rear brakes off an Si.
also, has anyone used the pbr metal master pads?
