Brake Pad Replacements..........

I've switched out my brake lines with stainless from Stop-Tech but want to upgrade the pads now. I've read that the Corvette C5 pads are a direct match. If so I'll prolly go that route. Any other suggestions?

I ran the Hawk pads on my C5 (Z06). They worked great, but the back pads squealed alot under normal driving. Under hard driving they were find. Drove me nuts to the point I put the factory pads on the back and ran the Hawks up front. Got the Hawks from Baer Brakes.

Consider Axxis Ultimate for the rears. They have a wide temperature range. Stock pads can't take the heat.

I need a brake combination that will send me from 155mph to 80mph REALLY QUICKLY. I have to this on occasion when a little FIAT or PEUGOT jumps in front of me on the Autobahn.
And it rains a lot here.
I all for "safety First"
What's the best combo.
