Looking for some feedback on Rotor ideas.

Daily Driver Evo X, will see some monthly track time, but mostly recreational and non-competitive. I really like Works' pads and lines, but have any of you used their WRP 2-pc slotted rotors? I've also heard good things about DBA.

Right now I'm leaning more along the StopTech 1-pc Cryo-treated slotted rotors. I'm attracted to their supposed longevity, and strength under serious braking.

I really haven't put too much thought into what my priorities are for the rotors, but off the top of my head I'd like them to last a decent amount of time, and be really resistant to warping and permanent deformation. I know the pads and calipers have more to do with the stopping power of the brakes, correct? What other factors are there to consider?

As far as price goes, I'm not afraid to put down a bit more money for a quality part, but I don't want to cross the line into "unnecessary for use case" territory. I'm looking for something mostly comfortable on street conditions, but they won't let me down on the track after repeated visits.

Hey everyone. I have a '12 Evo X GSR with 21000 miles on it. I'm going to be replacing the brakes soon and just wanted some recommendations on which pads to get. My car is a daily driver and put about 200 miles on it a week. I have not tracked this car but plan on taking it a few times this upcoming year just to see what it can do. Any one recommend 1 brand over another. . Any help would be great. Thanks

Assuming you're coming from the OEM pads, you have a couple of options. Some people buy a dual purpose pad that is made for daily use without eating your rotors, but have a high enough temperature range that they can handle some track abuse. Think of these types of pads as "jack of multiple trades, master of none."

Others will buy dedicated pads that they will then swap out. They will run a good daily driving pad, quiet, not as dusty, easy on the rotors, etc. But when they go to the track they will swap the pads out to a dedicated racing set that are more aggressive, but shouldn't be used on the daily if you want to maintain your rotors.

Considering you're like me and just getting into the track scene, I would suggest going for the first option until you start getting more into the competition of tracking (when you first start, you will just be learning to be competent on the track). Depending on what you want out of your pads there are various options. On the expensive side, there are Ferodo D2500 pads. A lot of people love them. For those of us that don't have money trees, I considered Project Mu B-force pads and Works Blue pads. I went with the latter option and am supremely happy with them. Still dusty, but noise free, and not hard on rotors. I've never tracked them, but I've Ran them on mountain and canyon runs which are pretty hard on brakes on the way down. I've heard them squeak once in the entire time owning them. One of the more hotly debated options are the Hawk pads. Some people swear by them, and others hate them and consider them cheap. I stayed away from them just because of all the contention. I wanted something with a higher positive/negative feedback ratio.

Have you or anyone else heard of Girodisc Front/Rear Magic Brake Pads ? I talked with MAP rep and he recommended the Fedoro D2500 pads but also this Girodisc Magic Brakes. Has anyone had any luck with these pads or know if they get good reviews?

Gonna do a brake pad change on the fronts. Do most of you guys change out all your pads at once? I wasn't sure if it an AWD would be any different, but.. i'm assuming it isn't.
