Can Hawk Performance brake pads and Power Slot brake rotors help improve stopping performance?
Definitely. Look at the differences between the best stops from test number two and three. When the stock pads and rotors were replaced with Hawk LTS pads and Power Slot rotors, the stopping distances were between 3 to 12 feet shorter. The Power Slot rotors were also slightly better at dissipating heat, recording an average Delta T (change in temperature) that was 8.7 degrees lower than the factory rotors. Finally, the test driver felt that directional stability was best with the Hawk Performance and Power Slot combination. Only minor steering corrections were necessary to keep the vehicle traveling in a straight line. So whats it all mean? Whether youre on a trail or towing, having bigger rims and off-road rubber can have some performance advantages, but you should upgrade your brakes as well. COMMENTS: Ideally this test should have been conducted with the vehicle at its stock ride height. However, the 10-inch lift kit was already installed on the vehicle in preparation for the switch
