Brake pad question

Love the Trackhawk, not too fussy about the amount of brake dust. Been thinking about changing to Powerstop Ceramic pads. I don't plan on tracking, just wondering if anyone has switched for daily driver use, how the brakes perform.

I changed out mine about a month ago and what a difference in the reduction of brake dust. Stopping is also great. No issues at all in dry or wet. No odd noises with mine either.

I changed out my front & rear factory Brembos for the Powerstop with less than 500 miles on them & it's been the best Mod thus far!!! No more washing the wheels and calipers after every drive and the brakes perform as well as the Brembos without all the dust!!!

Which pads? Evolution Z16 or Z17, or Evolution sport Z23, or Z36? Do we need new hardware if the TH only has 1500 miles on it?

No need for new hardware being that new. I just re-used what was on there and all worked just fine. They come with pins, etc but I found the stock stuff looked to be better quality and just re-used them.

Has anyone that installed the Z23s have any issue with the rotor discolouring?

I have powerstops on my C7 and they've turned the rotor bronze. A common issue in the vette community.

Been running mine for a year with no discoloration. When running the OEM pads I noticed that the slots in the rotors would get clogged up with material though.
