Aside from looking really good, obviously high quality components, all the parts were there, and the installation was simple, with no drama at all.
I have the new Cantrell brake cooling system, no issues with fitment.

After bedding in the street pads, the brakes feel fantastics. I can't wait to test the system in the track with the track pads!
Good choice. I have the ST60/380 setup on the front and ST40/355 setup on the rear. They've been fantastic, with about 25 total track days so far.

But yes... Stoptechs are awsome!

P.S. do you have the rears too? They make a huge difference.
One of the many benefits of the StopTechs is that they are compatible with such a huge array of pad makes and models. The Street Performance pads that ship with the kit are good pads--great on the street, and quite decent on track--but I found that they disappear pretty quickly after just a few good track days. I switched to Pagid RS29s for track season and have been impressed with their performance and relative longevity.
