Hawk HPS or Porterfield R4S for street pads.

and the Porterfields hold up for track use well also.

what do the dimples do? compared to slots or holes?

greenstuff pads had some problems a while back with excessive rotor wear but they've fixed that now. All the mags give them good reviews but what the hell, if I dont like them (still bedding in) I'll chuck em & try something else.

I dont think the blind holes in the rotors really do that much, according to EBC

Quote:
The wider slot actually draws cool air across the pad surface keeping pads and rotors cooler. They also expel dust, dirt and hot gases better than fine slots which eventually fill with rust and scale and become ineffective in our opinion.
The blind drilled holes break down surface gases when braking from speed but do not weaken the rotor cross section as can happen with through drilling, thereby lessening the chance of rotors cracking over time and heavy use.
whatever, they look pretty neat & my stock discs were shot after 33k!!

The disc are good. I'm running those with EBC red stuff.
They take a while to reach optimum working temperature. But when they do, the breaking power is great!
