Power Stop Brakes Rotors and Pads Review

Hello everyone, like many of us, money has been really tight. I needed rotors on my car bad, so I decided to replace the pads and rotors with Power Stop Ceramic Brake Pads (rumor is they are pretty close to the Hawk HPS compound) and Drilled/Slotted Rotors. I got the pads AND the rotors sent to my door for $280!!

From the company that sold them to me, they said the rotors are indeed made in China to their specs and to meet our regs. So we will see how they go. As for the brake pads, they are Evolution Ceramic Pads that from what other forums have said are meant to be a Hawk HPS competitor.

Now I am not saying go race with these suckers, but for DD duties and Evo AutoX duties they should be fine.

I also bled the lines and filled with ATE Supeer Blue (ATE 200 Blue) and then went for a drive to bed them in. That consisted of about 10 aggressive stops from 55mph or so to about 10mph. The pedal is nice and firm, they feel very good. I will report back when I have some miles on them. So far so good O0

My Dad and I installed them. Took most of one day to do everything. Here are some pics for you.

1000 Mile UPDATE

This is after 1000 miles of use, the Rotors, Pads seem top notch. I have not done ANY AutoX on this set up and probably won't. No funds for that right now. BUT spirited driving and DD duties thus far have been excellent. Pads have great initial bite, Pedal modulation is excellent, I am very impressed thus far. All for $280 Plus I spent about $12 for a liter of ATE 200 BLUE Racing Brake Fluid.

So Far So Good. Cant beat the price for those on a budget. Thats for sure.

I bought the set here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

People kinda make fun of the Ebay Store Products, but Brake Motive is a USA Company, the Rotors are from China, but are machined here and coated here. The Pads are Made in the USA.

I have a bout 1000 miles on the set up so far and even though you cant compare these "street" pads to lets say a High End Hawk, or Endless Pad, these cost a fraction of their cost.

For Daily Driving duties they are all you really need. Save the "track" pads for the Track.

from what ive researched and heard, stoptech is pretty high up there they are legit. They are arguably in the same level as brembo and wilwood but probably the bottom of the 3. Ive used their street pads and i like them.

Shouldn't have gotten the cross-drilled. The holes are going to fill with brake compound and become basically useless. Slotted rotors are the way to go as they sweep away the gasses and dust that develops during braking. For the price, not terribly shabby, but I don't think you'll be happy with them long-term. Keeps us posted.
