I’ve ran the same PowerStop Track Day pads and rotors in my 1970 Camaro with Z06 Corvette brakes in three Optima events and their braking power is excellent and show no signs of brake fade. Braking confidence is great and allows you to brake deeper into a turns.
I also have a Cadillac CTSV and use the PowerStop Z26 brake pads. The brake feel and stopping power is equivalent to the factory pads with one big benefit. 1/4 the dust is created with these pads. That means less cleaning, the calipers and polished wheels always look clean.
The price for these pads is a fraction of the other high performance pads and you can purchase them from Rock Auto or Summit Racing and have them next day.

I bought the Power Stop Street Warrior Brake Kit for my 350Z. The rotors still have the same shine since the day I put them on. These are very sharp and improved the look of my ride. I received my full order within a couple of days! Awesome shipping time!

The quality and construction is excellent. Eliminating 80% of previous brake dust produced by my oem potatoes and pads. I also put on painted calipers and stainless steel brake lines. 35% shorter stopping distances and absolutely no brake fade

Driving an STi usually means quick bursts of acceleration. Deceleration is just as important! Plenty of spirited driving with equal braking, an the end result will still leave ur wheels just ask clear as if u washed em. Love these pads, don’t think I will by any other brand or material!

I was happily surprised at how well these pads work. They’re well made and come standard with shims. The thing that got me though is the fact that they don’t squeak!!! I’ve had Brembo pads that WOULD NOT stop squeaking. These are cheaper does the same or better job than the Brembo pads and again THESE PADS DON’T SQUEAK!!! Love Them!! Very satisfied with these pads!!!
