I might be looking for sloted Rotors - anybody can give me ideas about good high performance sloted Rotors
I am also thinking of installing high performance Brake pads - with little or no dust coming off - what about Raybestos, ceramic pads or Hawk perforamnce/high performance pads
Let me have all your opinions on that and what product is better then the other and why

there is a GD going on for rotors in the group buy forum. don't know if it's still going, but you probably can pm the guy(maxed up?) and he would give you a deal on them.

Just picked up a set of Powerslot rotors from www.buybrakes.com. I think total came up to $168-$169 free shipping.

Anyway, I am DEFINITELY PLEASED. Now I feel THIS is the way my Altima should have stopped in the first place. Also on stock pads... After driving for a few days, I'd recommend a brake pad that bites more like Hawk... Its very soft, but it still stops quickly...

I could use a nice set of blue brakes for my car. Wish i can find that. Maybe i'll just paint the ones i have now. I only have 13K on my car

As for rotors Go Power Slot, they are very good rotors. Pads is a bit more tricky. If you want low dust go Satified Pro Ceramic. If you want less (than stock) dust but an increase in stopping power go Hawk HPS Street.

For the Blue calipers We sell the G2 Caliper paint system in blue. It is like $38.00 plus shipping.

Blake I dont care so much about stoping power, if the new pads perform at least as teh stock pads I am happy. My goal is to reduce the brake dust and to have quit pads - will the satisfied Pro Ceramic fall inot that categorie - are they quit
How about Raybestos ceramic ones?? Any idea how they perform
