So after all that good feedback you need a brake upgrade why?

The Volvo 240 brake system is over-engineered enough to take care of anything you are likely going to be asking it to based on your overview.

Make sure the stock brakes are in good shape and spend the money on something else that you'll enjoy.

If you really need to spend money on your brakes to be happy put in some Hawk Street or Porterfield brake pads - that should scratch your itch.

I have seen my stock 740 girlings with cheap rotors glowing in 24 hour night races, but never experienced any fade with race pads and ATE Typ200 fluid.

Any problems I have had with brakes have been related to proper bleeding to eliminate air in the lines. Once I got a Motive power brake bleeder that problem went away.
