looking for options, need new rotors and pads

Postby D » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:21 am

long story short, i just had the evo serviced and pretty much everything is almost perfect on it (much to my relief), except for one thing, i will need new rotors (fronts, as the rears can be machined) and pads fairly soon, so i got a quote for $1200 each for the genuine rotors (each) and about $400 or so for the brembo break pads, just wondering what are some other options to explore i have been looking on some websites for new ones and i have slotted rotors are cheaper on a particular site however i am unsure if they ship to AUS, pretty much looking for other options that are not going to be soo. . . pricey

Best advice I can give you is do your research thoroughly .Maybe have a talk to boys at GSL Motorsport.On the subject of pads I bought a full set of EBC REDSTUFF pads from Amazon USA for around $250 delivered may be worth having a look there.

Rotors probably something like this, then some pads to suit.. theres lots of different options. Like darryl said gsl would be your best bet.

using RDA Slotted disc for Evo X at the moment, cant really fault them, and they were from memory 350? or 400? for the front pair

Then there are some 2 piece option that are much much lighter but goes to about 1k.

Pretty sure the stock ones are brembo 2 piece hence the price tag?

Pads, DS2500 are good, or i have driven a few cars with hawk racing Brake pad, and they are pretty good. Would recommend both gold or red box for stret and spirited driving. Also look at Endless MX72, best pads i have tried.

My evo has just under 44k on the clock , looks like it is time to do my research, apparently I have roughly 5 thousand km or so of life on them so should leave me with plenty of time to research given I drive it a hole kilometer of 2 a week :(( pretty muh bring it home wash it short drive, repeat the process), I was talking to one of the guys from wayville Mitsubishi and pretty much after 40k km they just throw the rotors and put new ones on, could become an expensive procedure every few years, but probably worth it for the enjoyment even though the bank account does not agree

I have RDA slotted and dimpled rotors. Pretty good i think. Not overly expensive. I also use EBC green stuff on them which has had alright results.
All the people ive talked to recommend the Ferodo pads as well

1200 for genuine rotors- LOL!

I'd suggest girodisc front rotors + girodisc pads. Cant go wrong!
