In terms of a street pad which offers quite low dusting are there any particular recommendations? No track use.

We have done quite a bit with Project Mu Type NS (what was previously NS400). This latest batch is a slight reformulation that emits a bit more dust than the original compound but it's still a very quiet and low dusting compound, but also gives higher friction levels than the stock pads and the original formulation.

We also have Carbotech 1521 compound which is extremely low dusting (slightly less than the Project Mu Type NS) but does not produce as much friction as the Project Mu pads.

How do the Project Mu PS pads compare to the NS and the Carbotech 1521?

Thanks for the reply Mike, could you shoot me a DM for a quote for the Carbotech 1521 and Project Mu Type NS.

Type PS are the replacement for the B-force and sit in the performance category above the Type NS and Carbotech 1521. A bit more friction but a lot more dust than either Type NS or 1521. The reason we haven't been pushing the Type PS or the old B-force much is because, in my opinion, it sits in an awkward place in the spectrum- if you want ultra low dust and noise it's not the best way to go and if you're willing to sacrifice on the dust output for higher friction then just go straight to HC+800, Ferodo DS2500 or Endless MX72 because they all punch much harder than the Type PS across the board for not much much more dust output (except Endless which is actually a bit lower on the dust output, all else equal).

Thanks for the info on the PS, good to hear. Other vendors are pushing the PS as "best of both worlds" with lower dust and higher friction than NS, probably for sales.

It's a bit higher friction but most certainly not lower dust than Type NS.

Hey Guys,
Has anyone used Powerstop Rotors or Evolution pads? Rockauto has them on sale right now for $150, just wondering if they are a good alternative or not worth the savings?

That is a pretty crazy price for the whole package, especially since it comes with the pins and brackets for the brake caliper. The pads are ceramic so low dusting/noise but they aren't going to be on par with metallic pads as far as stopping power. Never used Powerstop rotors so can't give you any feedback on that.

First time doing a brake job. Took me longer then expected as i took my time and the rears were a little more tricky getting the rotor off. I went with R1concepts geomet rotors and duralast gold ceramic pads.

I bedded them in using the 60-10 braking method.

They are super quiet and brake very well. Initial bite from oem isnt there but they do bite great for a dd. I have no regrets and love seeing no brake dust.

I have the r1 geomets on my jeep and the hubs still have no signs of rust and i live in nj where they salt the roads like crazy so thats why i went with them on my F. Under $440 im very happy with this setup.

My stock pads have alot of meat left on them if anyone is interested. Gonna post them soon.
