After upgrading the Turbo and struts it was time to upgrade the brakes without breaking the bank.
We went with a very good quality but lesser known rotor from Centrix. The real important thing to point out is the rotor finish, the paint in the drilled holes and cooling fins will greatly increase the life of the rotor and keep it from prematurely delaminating.
Everyone has an online opinion about which brake parts to use on what, but most comments come out only months after the parts have been put on. This WRX had slotted and drilled rotors that came apart when the non painted holes in the rotor allowed the porous portion of the rotor to become rusty. These rotors were on the WRX for a few years before this happened but a better quality rotor would have lasted longer and we know which drilled and slotted rotors not to use. The enemy of efficient braking is heat and slotted or drilled rotors help keep brake temperatures down.
We decided to upgrade to steel brake lines to decrease flex in the lines, now we do not typically suggest doing this if you hit the trails with your Suby.
Last is the friction material we went with Hawk HP plus pads front and rear.
So if you own a performance enhanced WRX or Legacy GT that is due for brakes why not upgrade your brakes instead of just replacing them.
