I buy their eline slotted rotors and either PosiQuiet pads or Hawk pads, depending on how much I wanna spend.

Got to test them real good today. Had to go from about 50 to 0 very, very quickly in the truck and they did just fine. It was either that or smash into a POS Corolla.

wow... you really got screwed on what you have now.... im running the cheapest pads and rotors autozone sells and apart from the brake dust i can still lock the wheels without much effort. never had any issues in the rain, but that might just be because of my stock rims keeping them dry.

I've also had great experiences with Bendix pads. I've always used the CT3 pads when I did use them. I personally preferred the Akebono Ultra Premium pads though, but both were excellent. The Bendix pads smoked up on me a few too many times on hard driving, and were brittle as a dried lakebed when I took them off to replace them. You can get both of them on rockauto.
