    I guess I'll add my .02 to this thread

    Rotors: Brembo OEM replacement
    Calipers: Stock
    Pads: OEM
    Fluid: DOT 3

    I LOVE the stock pads for normal everyday driving. I had ebc greens and they dusted like crazy and wore down very fast, and I am by no means a hard braking driver. I baby her like no other.

    So for me, stock pads have been AMAZING as far as stopping power and low dust. I don't heat them up so I can't speak for fading, but for normal, everyday driving they are unbeatable IMO.

    This has been the best and most frustrating experience of my life. I thank my dad for all the help he has given me in this rare restoration. Now that the car is done, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    Should be able to without a problem, just make sure you turn the rotors before you put new pads on.

    Would stay away from race pads unless you need them though, they're more prone to make noise, dust and wear faster.

    Just redid my whole brake setup, I've got Brembo drilled and slotted rotors, stock calipers (rebuilt), akebono ceramic pads, steel braided lines, dot 4 fluid. The car brakes much better than it did before and also brakes better than my 07 civic si.

    i agree, they are the worst brakes of all the cars i've driven in recent memory: i'm not even expecting to compare to my other 2 current cars, which are known for superb brakes (BMW E46 and Lotus Exige), but i want something that at least doesn't scare me on the street when i step on the brakes! i'm convinced that unless i am too picky about my brake performance (feel, bite, braking distance), something is very wrong with my car...?

    my car is a '92 All-Trac. i have brand new goodridge stainless steel lines, ATE SuperBlue fluid, new OEM Toyota rotors, new OEM Toyota pads. i also fully rebuilt all 4 calipers with using OEM Toyota rebuild kit. for me, a car's suspension and brakes are #1 priority, so i don't skimp out on that (i'm an autocrosser hehe, so brakes/suspension before power mods!) i am not convinced toyota, when they sold this car new (which is basically what i've done to the car at this point with all brand new OEM parts), thought the brakes were sufficient, cos it's not...

    anyways, before going to extreme measures (BBKs), i wanted to try changing a few things at a time. i want to try a different pad and see what that does-- so i came here searching to see what other people run. i'll give HPS a shot, since i've run them before.

    my car is mostly a street car. occasional autox. prob. no track (road course) duty. i'm not asking for much. my family's old kia sephia braked better than this car (that car was only like 1900lbs, but still...)

    I upgraded my 200hp 90 GT to run the same front and rear brakes you've got on your Alltrac. Car stops just fine. Then again, I've got a huge weight advantage. For the street I run Hawk HPS and for the track, I've used Hawk Black. Rear pads are stock for street and Axis Metal Masters for track.

    For something as easy as Auto-X (from a braking perspective), the HPS pads in the front should be just fine. If not, try the HP+ though they will squeal a bit. I also hear that Carbotech makes some rotor friendly street friendly high performance pads so you could look into those as well.

    Which Carbotech pads are you running Joey?

    I just got a set of XP8's. They're supposed to be quite a bit better than the Hawk HP+ pads that I was running last year. I can't wait to try on the Carbotech's.
