This is an interesting topic, many on here would like to see the opinions of folks.

If you could only see how unimpressed people are with an arrogant, no value add reply as yours....guys like you should leave this forum IMO....you add nothing!

OP, sorry...I just had to say it...I have seen too much of this kinda of crap on here lately...it's a good question and deserves good answers.

I agree. And if you go back and review the first page you will see my first response to the op.

The statement you quoted by me was NOT direted at the OP nor his questioning which pads to select. Was it that friggen hard to follow this thread? It was directed towards someone that was stating, in a nutshell, Carbotech marking-up brake pads significantly and there isn't much differances between a lesser quality pad and Carbotech pads. However this gentleman had not realized the quoted amount by Carbotech was for Grandsport/Zo6 calipers.

As far as being arrogant goes, perhaps there are some on here. I generally try to help anyone and everyone on CF tech. There's countless threads doing just that.

Now, now, 'gentlemen'. Go easy on our Canadian brother who generally has a decent avatar and is a good dude. DSOM, we have no doubt that you are also a good dude. Tis the holiday season so we don't want either of you on the 'naughty' list ...

Arrogance??? Sure seems that way to me. The gentleman you refer to did not state, in or out of a nutshell, anything about any difference in pad quality ("500.00 for pads? what is your profit margin with this sale? good god, it's not like there is any more technology put into a corvette pad over say a chev P-30 chassis. come on!"). And it wasn't until later that carbotech posted the price was for z06 pads.

Just sayin...

Very satisfied and repeat customer of Carbotech here.

They're not the cheapest. But in my experience, they're the best for street pads.

Carbotech 1521 Bobcats here. I've been happy with them thus far. Much less dust than the standard Z51 pads and just as good of a first bite.

When I've bought ceramic pads for my Vette's in the past, I've always got Raybestos Quiet Stops. Don't know if they still make them or not.

This thread represents the attitude of the entire nation ever since, well, I better not say it but it is self evident IMHO.

Ok, still stand true and stick by the Carbotech 1521 compound true performance and low dust. Pad does not make noise and is a 100% non corrosive dust. We have sold thousands for the new C7 and hundreds for the 15 steel rotor Zo6's with many praises that this pad works. Yes, its more expensive than other brands but, we have no noise or dust issues the 1521 simply performs. I am always available for questions email, PM or call me at 216-780-8825. Always have plenty in stock and ready to go...

Carbotech™ Bobcat 1521™ The Carbotech Bobcat 1521™ is our high performance street compound that is our most successful compound. The Bobcat compound is known for its awesome release and modulation, along with unmatched rotor friendliness. Like our AX™ & XP™ line of compounds, Bobcat 1521™ is a Ceramic based friction material offering minimal rotor damage and non-corrosive dust. Bobcat 1521™ offers outstanding performance, even when cold, low dusting and low noise with an excellent initial bite. This compound’s virtually perfect linear torque production provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. Bobcat 1521™ operating range starts out at ambient and goes up to 900°F. Bobcat 1521™ is suitable for ALL street cars, perfect for your tow vehicle, police cruiser. The Bobcat 1521™ compound has been found to last two-three times longer than OE pads you can purchase at a dealership or national retailer. That’s one of the beauties of Carbotech Ceramic brake compounds. Bobcat 1521™ is NOT recommended for any track use.
