My Hawk HPS dusts a lot. However, it's like a light redish pink dust. Doesn't show up too badly on my stock silver rims, but it's easier to see on dark rims. Also, IMO, they perform better than OEM. I have no true or scientific evidence to base that off of.

Eh, I really don't know any real local hangouts or meets for just subies. But, we might be having a hershey meet sometime this late summer or early fall. I hope, with people from the forum.

The dust they make is rather bright pink. If it was blackish-grey, it was not brake dust. And slotted rotors EAT brake pads.

My pads are red...lol, but I doubt my pads make red dust. But, mosc is pretty much right. A majority of the stuff that gets on our wheels is road dirt. The brakes just don't turn to ash everytime you hit the pedal. Unless you brake with slotted rotors. Kidding Josh

Stop tech makes a stage II brake upgrade kit. All four slotted rotos, ss lines, pads for like $540. I saw them on rallysportdirect.com and that's a good deal.
