Re: Brake Pads

I don't need to bleed SRF frequently, but if a left foot braker uses it, then yes bleed after every session.

Re: Brake Pads

Where are you guys buying pads from these days? The places I've bought from recently no longer exist...

Won't be disappointed with G-Loc's.

Out of curiousity, what setup you wind up going with?

Re: Brake Pads

I'm going to start with R12 on the front and R8 on the rear.

Re: Brake Pads

R12s in front I get but R8's in the back? Interesting.

That little rear braking power eh? Either way, Frank's got you set good.

Re: Brake Pads

R12 and R8 seem to be the setup, it is what I run!

James Houghton runs R8 rears I believe he tried the R10 and found it too much! At least I thought that was what Frank mentioned..

You will be very happy with the G-Loc pads

I just ordered 2 sets of R12 for the front of my Civic ST40 calipers pre-bedded option.

Re: Brake Pads

I run either R12 or R16 front and R8 rear. That staggered setup works well for me. My car is light compared to some. Grant's also. Spinner's situation has a staggered driver setup, so that's also important to consider. Of course, you have to look at the car too. A heavy Nissan GTR I'd likely put a square setup. Likewise for some Corvettes. Light cars, beyond R8 I probably wouldn't sell you a square setup.
Always happy to chat brakes. And I've got a sale starting in January - and we're very close to January ...

And both James and Chris are running R16 front and R8 rear. They each are running over 600 whp too. So don't just jump out and buy R16s.

Not questioning your advice Frank

I have no idea what setup or car or tire he was running other than his first post so I automatically default to your knowledge since you likely did way more homework with him than I did. Just interesting to see how it differed from mine when I ran Carbotechs.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to all!
