hawk hps are a street/track pad
hawk hp+ are a track pad and were using them on the street and no problems and racing is only 2-3 times a month the rest of the time is spent comuting to and from work. and im shareing my real life experiences with them and in good and hard driving conditions

the Satisfied Ceramics were used the same way and they didnt give me that warm and fuzzy like the Hawks do.

The Satisifed are more like $65 at Kragen, and $75 at TireRack.com ..... but if you can get the Hawks at that price point, it kind of makes it a more attractive option.

So I'm sticking with hawk hps (no scream and way less dust) but which rotors?

Must be drilled and/or slotted and I'm looking at Brembo, DBA or EBC.

Any recommendations?

EBC Ultimax. They're slotted, not drilled. Should be able to get for less than $150 a pair. They have a high temp paint throughout so no rust forms on the non-contact surfaces. They also contain a little copper in the mix to help dissipate heat. Made in England, so no cheap Chinese iron

Thank you, but I looked into them a bit and I need something built for street and track use. Ultimax seems to be for street only. I should have mentioned that...

Does anyone have an opinion re: XtremeStop rotors? I've done some research and it all seems good...

Ultimax are the SAME EXACT blanks as thier low line and high-line rotors with the same build material and quality. All that it lacks from thier high-line is it doesn't have cross-drilling ..... which is a waste of time IMO in all but the most extreme sports applications. And even then, our factory rotors are so small you can't afford to lose surface area for cross-drilling. On top of the problems with cracked rotors from cross-drilling.
