I need to replace front rotors and pads......
 
should I stick with the OEM Brembos or go to something more "exotic"?......

I did do a couple of track days last year and may do a couple more next year to show other car brands enthusiasts what an Jeep SRT can do.....

Any suggestions before I go with the factory reccommended option?

TIA

I bought some hawk HPS street pads to go with my brembo sports....not got to try them out yet though.

Ive got some oem rotors and pads with less than 1000 miles

Surprised the rotors need replacing. I would think the rotors should go through at least 1 pad change before they are too thin. Did you warp one n the track?

Btw, I would do the slotted sport rotors and the ceramic Hawks.

The tech at the dealership told me that the front rotors are not warped and are void of grooves, but they are at the minimum thickness, whatever that means.....

They suggest pads and rotors for better results, but from my race car experience, I usually go thru 3 sets of pads before I change my front rotors, so I am just contemplating getting another set of stock pads to hold me over the winter and then the slotted rotors and more aggressive pads next spring........

Thanks for the input....

That's what I would do, sounds like you have a plan.
