*Car and Driver magazine did a stopping test among several Dodge Vipers, each equipped with different brands of brake products. The StopTech-equipped Viper had the shortest stopping distance of any according to Car and Driver.
*Sport Compact Car magazine did a stopping test among several Nissan 350z vehicles, and the one with the StopTech brakes had the shortest stopping distance.

*European Car magazine did a stopping test for the Audi S4, and found that the StopTech-equipped S4 had the shortest stop in the 0-60mph and the 0-80mph challenges.
About this Product:
Comes with a shim.
Designed for heavy duty and fleet applications where hauling, towing and heavy vehicles are the norm. Reduced pad wear at higher temperatures means better performance and increased component life. Well suited to any street vehicle that has larger wheels and tires, carries heavy loads, drives on steep grades or does regular towing.
Compared to the other models of StopTech brake pads, the StopTech Posi-Quiet Extended Wear pads allow for the longest rotor life (very little wear on the rotors) and are the same as the StopTech Ceramic pads in terms of being the most quiet.
