Performance Friction vs Stoptech Pads
 
So Im getting ready to redo the brakes on the car. The Performance Friction Zrated pads have lasted 80k and take about three weeks to turn the wheels black(vs stock pads 3days). Im happy with their performance. Im looking into the Modbargains Stoptech Stage 2 Kit that comes with Stoptech Street Performance brake pads. I dont autocross or race but its fun to push the car in the hills everynow and then. Its a daily driver first and foremost. How do these pads compare to eachother? Havent seen a comparison between the two. Dusting is a big factor for me, I dont like having to clean the wheels every week. Stopping performance is another big factor. Im happy with the PFC Zrated, do the Stoptech pads perform as well?

All of our customers who have eventually bought the stage 2 package were in the same spot as well, so you're not the only one out there. Guys looking for something that is streetable, but then good enough to run on the track, that's exactly the market they were looking for. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask, but I think this might be exactly what you're looking for:

Yes thats what im considering but do the Stoptech pads dust more or less than the PFC Z-rated? Do they stop as well as the PFC Z-rated pads?

I currently have the PFC-Zrated for 80k miles now and no complaints, just looking into my options

I've never had a direct comparison before, so that's a bit up in the air. Of course if you're looking for something different to try something new, I can tell you all my customers who've purchased a set of these, have never complained, never had an issue, and most of them, have never changed back to another pad after getting set up with StopTech.

Are stoptech parts good, sure , but im looking for a comparison, not a "buy my stuff cause people liked it before" thanks

Why change if you like what you have? Options are fine sure, but that really only matters once something is unavailable right?
PFC brakes are some of the best out there.
