THe difference in braking power would have to be tremendous for me to use
them, the repco MM that I use now on the delta t (This isnt a plug!)
rotors stops the car quite well (!!) with no fade/sqeak at all. If the
CC's are a little better but noisy, it isnt worth it. Escorts, chevettes
(and mercedes!) have sqeaky brakes!! I think its just one of my pet
peeves, makes the car sound cheap!
