Brake Pads

Hey guys, I'm looking forward to coming out to as many OTA events as I can next year with my recently purchased E46 Track Car.

I'm just wondering what would be the best pads to make in through an OTA event day and still be able to drive to and from the track. I was out to TMP in the fall and brake fade and fallout was brutal.

I occasionally drive the car on the street however I can live with noise and dust, I just want to be able to stop.

I have the Hawk HP Plus within reach but before I purchase I thought I would ask!

Re: Brake Pads



I think most go to at least a DCT-30 for the track. And a good high temp fluid to go along with it.

I think the HP+ is more for street or autocross.

Re: Brake Pads

I've used HP Plus and they're good but you need at least this level. Can be used street & track. I've also used HT 10. Very good for track in my opinion.

Re: Brake Pads

I would recommend the Carbotech / G-Loc brand of brake pads. You're likely a XP10 pad candidate.

http://www.ctbrakes.com/

Both of these brand pads are effectively the same, last a decent amount of time and will survive the beating without ripping up your rotors too bad. They're what I would recommend for someone starting off.

Re: Brake Pads

G-Loc R10 or R12 which is essentially the same as the Carbotech

I have run XP/R10 on the street, as well as XP/R12.. Given the weight of the BMW the R12 is probably your best bet, I went through two sets of 12's on factory Honda Rotors..

Depending on the amount of track time and street driving you will likely get the season out of them..

If bedded in properly there is very little noise from an R12, driving them on the street in colder temps will eventually remove the transfer layer, which is what causes the noise! Extreme cold temps they are a little dicey, so be careful to warm them up

Frank Ewald - Ewald Performance does a group order every year, do a google search or find him on FB he is excellent source for G-Loc pads.. The fastest Time Attack cars in Canada are running these pads.. James Houghton and Chris Boersma

Hope this helps!!

Grant
