May have to wait a while till the aftermarket catches up to the new model. Disappointed the brakes for a performance car could not handle even one track day.
Brakes are a wear item. Any race pad will dust like crazy and squeal like a stuck hog in daily use. I changed out to Hawk pads and slotted rotors in the SS. ~$2,000ish. Squealed every time you put your foot on them. OH, by the way; did you seat the pads? The ZL1 had pizza pan sized rotors and a single block, 6 piston caliper. These worked to haul things down from 150MPH plus (track speeds at NOLA and NCM).

What does the Subi Dealer recommend?
I would re-think asking a dealer. That huge flushing sound is your warranty going down the toilet.

No doubt the dealer is going to recommend OEM pads and don't track. 🤣 After market pads are there and there are more options at the link I posted. I'm sure there are other options, and I'm also sure the dealer is probably not going to be a good source of info for that.
