    Upgrade Brakes?

    Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade the my NA V's brakes. Looking for something with more stopping power. Do I get new pads/rotors or both? Any recommendations?

    There's no need, i would just get highend pads all around and if you really want new drilled and slotted rotors.
    But all hyundai brakes fit other hyundais, so gen coupe regular ones will fit. But why would you want that much more weight when these ones already tear your face off.

    I haven't had to replace my stock ones yet, but i would just google some and check out the reviews. I think 1 person on here has slotted rotors, which ill switch too after i need to upgrade.

    i was actually just getting info from HyundaiVeloster myself about suggestions, but drilled and slotted rotors will have, holes and slots (lol) in the rotors so when you're braking any road grime or anything on the surface gets pushed into these slots leaving a better surface for the pad to contact the rotor. I believe, from what i understand.

    I am assuming you mean "stopping power" as stopping in a shorter distance? Most cars brakes made today have more than enough stopping power.

    Slotted rotors are slots on the rotor that just keep stuff off of the rotor. They pretty much just clear the bad stuff away from the rotor. But they wear down the pads quicker.

    But honestly if you are not taking your car to the track and constantly applying tons of braking on them then there really is no point in having them.

    Upgrading your calipers and rotors does not make you stop faster as a daily driver. Upgrading calipers and bigger rotors really only helps when at the track when your brakes are exposed to above average temperatures. Bigger rotors means bigger surface area which causes less heat when braking.

    I would go with new tires if you want to brake "quicker" or you could strip your car of unwanted weight haha!

    Pads will help, slotted rotors is the next step

    I'd honestly jump straight to GenCoupe or Optima Turbo brakes if you want insane braking.

    Braking power is irrelevant when the factory tires won't be able to provide the grip for the additional brake force.

    Yeah i was just discussing this, seems like optima turbo front rotors, pads, calibers is the way ill be going. Theres also some upgrades to the rear as well. I just don't like the silly small size of the stocks.

    I have track summer tires and do rally cross in the v. So it'll see way more than daily braking.

    For now I'm happy with swapping out the pads, maybe later I'll do rotors.

    Still waiting for summer so I can slap the sticky shoes on and see what exactly does need work. I'd wager the rubber will go a long way compared to the oem nonsense.

    while the non-track Gen coupe brakes are same 12.6" in size, the rotor backspacing and caliper mounting location is different.

    you must use Optima Turbo brakes. (NOT sonata turbo. They are same 11.8" as VT front brakes)

    Does not the VT have an upgraded front brake package from the NAV anyway? Would that be a logical upgrade?

    All this talk of Sonata, Genesis, Optima brakes, but Ive never seen a DIY, pics, parts list or price. Maybe someone should make one.

    As for a stock set-up...

    Hawk HPS or EBC Yellowstuff pads
    R1 Concepts slotted and dimpled rotors
    Techna-Fit stainless lines
    and a better quality fluid like ATE Blue

    That is if any of these parts are even available for the Velo.

    I'm sure my dealer made noise about the brakes being upgraded from the Veloster to the Veloster Turbo - a check of a couple of reviews seem to indicate the same:

    Taken from: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo First Drive
    "But crucial changes have nevertheless been made to the steering and brakes. Our 2012 Veloster suspension walkaround revealed a unique (OK, weird) front brake placement behind the axle centerline on the same side as the steering arms. This idea is history, replaced here with conventional front suspension knuckles that locate the brakes up front, opposite the steering arms.This frees up space needed to optimize the steering geometry — the bump-steer curve is now more favorable and the overall steering ratio is a tad quicker at 13.9:1 instead of 14.2. There's also room for bigger brakes, and our Veloster Turbo stops via 11.8-inch ventilated front rotors instead of 11-inch ones. But the key point here is that even more massive Brembo-style aftermarket calipers are now possible. With the old knuckle design there was no room for anything bigger."

    Taken from: 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo First Drive – Review – Car and Driver
    "What the folks at Hyundai did not do—and we applaud them for it—is crank down the suspension. Little about the base Veloster’s chassis changes beyond larger front-brake discs (11.8 inches instead of 11.0) and bigger, 18-inch wheels with 215/40 Kumho Solus tires. They’re not even summer tires, just all-seasons, and no factory upgrade is offered."
