    Yup, the regular bi alloy rotors are ~ $300 a set, and the rears are super common, you can nab a rear set for under $150

    Yeah. Understandably so. The service manager had prices scribbled down on paper and they were about $500 a piece....according to him, of course.

    Thanks man, strange though the DTC-30's aren't listed for the rears on Hawk's website, only the DTC-60 and 70..

    Re: Replacing brake pads

    I'm not sure about the stock pad failures. I've used the heck out of mine for three tough seasons, and I'll replace only the fronts next year due to surface cracking, and wanting to try the DTC 30s up front. Mine still have plenty of thickness left too. I just need to track by some other Vs to see if "I'm not going faster, it's just that everyone else is slowing down".........

    Hey CVP, long time no see/speak. How've you been?

    After a couple of aggressively driven sessions at Summit point with stock pads there was so much pad transfer that hitting the brakes would cause large amounts of vibration. got so bad that I skipped the last session. It took a few hundred miles for the pads rotors to "clean up" on their own. Now, with a whoppping 11K miles on the car, the brakes squeak and squeal like crazy......
