so... i have Stop Tech pads front and rear, braided steel brake lines all around and new-ish rotors. i say new-ish because i did purchase everything new (lines, rotors, pads & fluid), but the stopping potential is dismal.
i might be expecting far too much, this i admit. but, i will be on the brakes really firm (80% of the pedal travel with firm pressure) and my WRX's speed shedding is less than impressive (my 99RS would slow down FAR faster with lesser pads).
so... given that i have Centric rotors, factory calipers, braided steel brake lines, new brake fluid and Stop Tech pads front and rear... can anyone think of a good solid (logical) reason why my brakes are lackluster?
i admit, my braking experience is HIGHLY biased. i am a bit too accustomed to my 1986 Toyota Mr2 - where if you THINK of putting your foot on the brakes, they are near lock up. damn i truly miss that brake setup...
ANYWHO... just curious per logical thoughts and reasons why my brake respone are very 'meh...'
