Don't even think about putting redstuff on a street car.

You'll just crash it again (the pads don't work well in the temperature range that street cars operate)

I thought about getting ebc greenstuff but i think it still would of been a little outside my heatrange. Just get some duralast pads or some hawk street pads and you'll be fine. What the heck are you doing in the gtp that needs that much extra braking? Just re-machine your rotors with some fresh cheapy pads and you are pretty much good. If you really want to improve on some braking go for some wieght reduction and some stickier tires.

[pro tip]
On the list of must do things for a car. you MUST add stainless steel brake lines. on every car you own just so you dont have to worry about ruber wearing out on you [or the brakes]. I highly recomend using stainless lines over the stock rubber junk.

[note: you dont have to do this to all your cars, but dont say i did'nt worn you.]

EBC reds are not race pads, they are street pads, or at least so says EBC.

I ran a set of reds on my VR4 which is my dd and they did great. My only complaint was how long they lasted, they were a little short lived for the price imo.

I would look into some kevlar pads if your looking for high performance pads.

OK guys side to go with power stop slotted rotors and their street performance pads for the rear. the front is in the works as of now probably going to be the same. pic's on profile of rears.
