I have been reading up on rotors , how anything more then slotted is really just for bling. Should I just stick with the slotted rotors?

I second that, Hawk HPS, low dust and excellent no fade stopping power.

R1 Concecpts were good for me. Good service and good product. On their slotted rotors and pads without issue.

slightly off topic, but related:

are ceramic brakes "harder" on rotors than organic? (ie: stock) i've used semi-organic before and they gave less break dust with virtually unnoticeable performance difference, but the semi's made the rotors wear faster due to the metalic content (note: especially with Aluminum rotor). any thoughts on how ceramic brakes affect rotor wear?

The slotted SRT rotors are very capable right out of the box. If you're not doing any hardcore road racing, I would stick to those. If you need a set, we have a package put together for all 4: http://www.speedlogixstore.com/product_p/bmcp-srt8b.htm

For pads, we definitely recommend the Hawk HPS over stock. They're much quieter and less dusty than OEM. Less expensive, too:

Rear: http://www.speedlogixstore.com/product_p/hb194f.570.htm

Everything is in stock and ready to ship!!
