Cayenne Brakes.. don't kill me

Recommended Posts

I know this topic has been talked about over and over, what are the best combs, best rotors this and that, but when I go to do my research I get a guy saying his HPS pads were rubbish and the next guy saying they are great.. My brakes are almost fried so I figured I'd start looking, and I thought I would get a good bit of help from here.

I'm looking at Stop Tech 350mm Sport Slotted Rotors front and 330mm Stop Techs in the back, with Brembo Ceramic pads..

I have a couple questions..

Brembo Ceramics.. are not what we get as OEM right? The dust is unreal from these OEM pads, and I was wondering if anyone as had experience with these ones. I'm torn between these and EBC Yellows.

Any problems from the Stop Techs? From what I understand there BBK are pretty good and comparable to Bremo BBK's so I figured these wouldn't be too far off.

Car is a 2004 CTT.

Do some more research. .. Stop tech is made by centric...centric rotors are much cheaper.

Hps pads are slightly aggressive. ... which is why you see some auto crossers use them. Aggressive generally means more noise and/or dust. ...I went with stop tech pads. ... less cold bite. ... but no dust

I'll start with saying I like my EBC Yellows and they are cheaper than OEM and dust slightly less. I've heard good about Hawks and have used them on other vehicles but not the Pig. As for Rotors, you do know at slow braking speeds slotted rotors will give you more noise but the Pig is has pretty good sound insulation. Only go with a good name brand I would say, OEM rotors are good too and a known quantity/quality. For the Hawks I think the Ceramics or the LTS pads would be a better choice over the HPS.

Hmm, well I would wanna do it right regarding the brakes, so I am also looking at Brembo Sport ones as well, I don't mind a little noise, and I have a good empty twisty road near by my house that occasionally run around on, and could use the benefits of a cross drilled rotors.

Keep in mind the difference between slotted and cross drilled. The cross drilled Porsche sometimes uses is cast in when the rotors are made relieving stresses whereas most aftermarket (aka cheaper) rotors are regular rotors that are drilled after the fact introducing stress areas that can cause cracks. Slotting does much the same as cross drilling without the cracking and true quality cross drilled rotors are more expensive.

Yeah, I have been leaning more towards slotted, as you mentioned above for the benefits, and I think they look better as drilled look like they have to much going on. I still cannot find a good review on the Stop Tech Slotted's on the Pig. They look good, just don't wanna get into a cheapest made rotor.
