Default 97 turbo, rotors and pads

Hey,

I want to get a good combo for my turbo miata.

For rotors I understand the brembo 25406 are a good option.
How do they improve breaking if they are not even drilled ?

For pads, well, I'm a bit lost, I was thinking Hawks HPS but then I read around that they are not recommended.

What should I take ?

It is a weekend car, little to no track days.

Thanks !

No track days, you don't need high temp pads.

NAPA Rotors
Mazda OEM Pads (I got the value ones at Rosenthals)

I ran them for 1 1/2 yrs with DD & AutoX. Quite, low dust, always work. (i.e. no blowing through the 1st stop sign of the day)

brembo blanks don't improve performance.
they're just good quality replacement rotors.
drilled doesn't mean better performance, just shed heat faster.

for street use I absolutely LOVE my se/sport setup. Larger rotors, larger master cylinder, and oem "sport" pads. The initial bite is out of this world, and I've not experienced fade with aggressive driving at all. Again, this is just on the street. No track use. The term "stops on a dime" best describes my brakes.

I see the op didnt like the response of, OEM pads for a non-track car that he got from M.net and came here to get the same response.
