i've searched a bit and there're always a lot of questions about brake setups but no one single thread just lists out the brake mods people have done to their car and how effective the mod has been. I'm getting tired of the mushy, unresponsiveness of my AV6 brakes (esp compared to my gf's G35 coupe).

I think there's a bigger thread similar to this that's gotten way out of hand with general commentaries on it. Please use this thread if you'd like to tell us:

1. exactly what you've modified on your brake system
2. what store you bought them and how much they were
3. how well they have improved your stopping compared to stock

no arguments or discussions about what's good or bad please.

I have stoptech slotted rotors, with hawk performance pads. I just changed to these pads from the axxis ultimates...reason being- DIRT. The axxis pads were really strong, but they would turn my wheels black in a day. The Hawk pads seem to work just as well, but have been much lower dust (so far). I purchased the rotors directly from stoptech, and the hawk pads from this site. Sorry I dont remember pricing.

This setup drastically improves the braking over stock. I have no more shakes, no 'mushy' pedal. I highly recommend a brake upgrade. Period.

1. Brembo drilled rotors and Ceramicool ceramic brake pads all around.
2. www.brakeworld.com - $656
3. Significant improvement - car stops extremely well now without the judder feeling at hi speed!

I just receive my new setup yesterday. I can't tell you yet what difference it has made because they are not on the car. I will post back on results. I bought the following from www.raceshoppers.com

Power slot diamond cut slotted and dimped for looks fronts were $165, rears were $146
Hawk HPS pads $82 front pads, $51 rear

Total cost was $488.51 that includes new speed bleeder valves also don't recall what those actually cost.

sweet03accord, definitely post back results after installation. I'm interested in the powerslot/hawk combo myself. Thanks!

That I can do, just for reference it will be sometime next weekend. I'm heading out of town today, but will be back on the 1st. It's scheduled for install next fri. or satur once I get back in town. I can tell you that a friend of mine has the same setup on a different ride but they are sweet, definite improvement over OEM and the brake dust is minimual. But I will deifintely post back once they are on my ride, getting my Koni's install at the same time, along with TL sway and H&R springs should be a big change can't wait.

Ive put several hundred miles on my hawk/stoptech combo, and I must say how satisfied I am. The axxis pads that I replaced were great as far as performance goes. They would grab like animals- hot or cold. But damn they would dust like crazy!! So I changed out to the hawk pads...and wow- my rims stay clean. I can easily go 3 or 4 weeks before cleanings now. The hawk pads are great cold, and especially hot. For those of you with axxis pads, I suggest changing out to the hawk pads if your sick of cleaning your rims every other day.

Well I'm back and everything got installed while I was gone. Being that they have only been on for a day and I can't really stomp on them yet, they are great from my first drive with them. First thing this am being a bit chilly what a difference compared to OEM, once they got warmed up boy do they grab nice. I will post back once they are broke in a bit and I can actually test the stopping power behind them. My buddy drove the car while I was gone and said the same, couldn't believe the upgrade to OEM. Only issue I have and haven't had a chance to look into it is if the brakes are loud or is it my garbage yoko tire causing the noise. Personally I think it's the tires I've hated them since the day I bought them, I'll ask my buddy seeing as he drove it with the OEM rims&tire which I use during the winter. The summer wheels just got put back on last night seeing as winter is over finally. Hoping to find out it's the tire, but I'll let everyone know. Peace!

Sounds promising so far. I think I'm partial to this combination and will personally buy the Powerslot rotors and Hawk HPS for my front brakes. Any thoughts from others?

I do have to say I like them a lot. As far a break dust it's hard to say, rained on and off recently so I haven't took the time to clean the car as of late.

noticed that when you ordered
the rear rotors the part number was 3295 the IT
department caught the error
and the part number should have been 90220. They

Dude...I've noticed that the rotors (especially the front) have developed corrosion as shown in the pic below. Not sure if that's gonna be a factor in you getting the rotors but I thought I'd share it in case this is a problem for people. Doesn't affect braking performance at all but it does kinda look nasty at certain angles but looks fine if you're looking at the wheels directly from the side. Can it be treated so that I can remove the corrosion?

Powerslots have the anti-corrosion plating on their rotors so something to think about before shelling out your coins.
