By "ceramic", do you mean ceramic based brake pads or ceramic-on-ceramic brake systems (ceramic rotors too)?Red Nissan said:Does anybody know how good ceramic brakes are and are they easy to put on? I am going to put pads on my hardbody later on this year when it starts to warm up outside.
Ok. In that case, the ceramic pads you're talking about are not that different from similar organic or semi-metallic pads. Despite the name, they are nowhere near 100% ceramic, and still contain anywhere between 10% and 20% metallic content (depending on whose pad it is).Red Nissan said:Ceramic based pads not the calibers
For a second I thought they were indicating the EBC pads and I was like No0o0o00o00o! EBC means Extremely Bad Compounds, expecially their cardboard GreenstuffMatt93SE said:The EBC post above was referring to the link above his.. Some people think EBC are the shiznit, and the rest of us stay away from them at all costs.
Check this out! It may interest you some.Red Nissan said:Thanks everybody for your opinion! I only use my truck for street and car shows :thumbup:
Now I'm interested in them. I think I'll lurk around on their site and see if they make rotors to fit my 02 B15. ThanksMatt93SE said:they're 2-piece. I'm not sure who made the hats, but I *think* it was Coleman. I bought the hats from Fastbrakes- same ones they use on their Maxima 12.2" kits, but I'm using 13" rotors with it.
I can't compare them directly to Stop Tech, but Coleman is known to be one of the best in the industry. they're used more on race cars than street cars, but obviosuly work on the street as well... (not to be confused with track-only brake pads like the Hawk Black!!!!!)
