Brakes

Looking to re do all of my roters, brake pads and possibly redoing some brake lines. I see there are a lot of different calipers out there about 4 allowen in the gs web page.

What's a good brake disk/pads setup for simi aggressive driving. Thanks all

I'd recommend Viggen calipers and 308mm front discs in the front, with 9-5 Aero calipers in the back clamping 300mm discs. Steel lines on all 4 corners.

Maybe Hawk HPS all around, or just in the front, depending on how you like your brake bias.

Slotted brembros with Hawk hps pads and stainless steel lines is my setup and I find it to be perfect for a street car

I've got this setup and kept the factory pads in the rear along with goodridge lines and a full brake fluid exchange. Very solid braking performance.
