What rearbrake setup for Brembo Front BBK?

Currently running the Brembo GT Front BBK with Subaru OE Pads.

Currently looking at the T2 Slotted Rotors for the rear, and planning to pair that up with Subaru OE pads as well.

Just curious what you guys are running for the rear brakes? And if so, do you guys have any other recommendations?

This setup isnt for occasional track use. Mainly for street/dd, and maybe 1-2 track days a year.

Unless you know you want to change the braking or handling character, use the same brake compound front and rear.

If you don't mind swapping pads and bedding the brakes in for every track day, get a dedicated set of track pads. You can also daily track pads, but they require more maintenance and go through rotors much faster. Depending on your speed and skill level, you might be able to get away with hybrid/sport pads for dual duty use.

For rotors, don't need anything more than blank rotors for the rear.

I run DBA T3 on the front and T2 on the rear with DBA XTreme Performance pads
If you see where you came from in your drivers window. It`s definitely RWD!

If you only see a couple of track days per year, and have a decent pace, just get a dedicated set of pads for the track, and run OEM pads (or other street pad) for the street.

Swapping pads is not that hard, and any dual duty pad will suck either at street driving, or at track driving — one way or another.

I'm running T3 rotors all around with the CTS BBK front upgrade and EvoX rear upgrade.
Stoptech Sport pads are working for me. 98% DD and several track days last year. I fully expect to be replacing the pads soon but may choose the same. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around changing back and forth between compatible street and track pads and the ~CA$1000.00 cost of those four corner sets of Carbotech 1521 and XP12 pads. Perhaps once I retire and have time to burn the switch-over may be okay.
