Recommended brake pad for street use.


Recommended Posts

Hi, my car is equipped with Brembos but the braking is less than spectacular. After about 15-20 mins of spirited driving through twistys the front brakes start smoking and I pretty much need to use the hand brake to come to a stop.

I've replaced the brake fluid and bled the brakes and that's improved the pedal feel but it still doesn't stop any better.

I have no idea what brake pads are in the car at the moment but they are very dusty.

Cheers.

What Boon said, you shouldn't be running out of brakes on the road unless you're driving like a muppet or something is broke.

Don't forget decent brake fluid too.

You have obviously never driven with bad pads then. The repco specials will give fade from 100 coming to a stop sign 2 times in a row. I've had fade with trw many times and brembos. But I tow lots

Who the hell puts repco specials on an STi? Still a muppet.

Does towing with an STi count as muppetry ?

Worse pads I had in my old STi v6 were the stock factory pads.

Only smokers I ever had were Bendix Ultimates.

Best all-rounders - Ferodo TS2000

Towing with a sti is muppet ish. But good thing I have never had a sti or an impreza. But all car yards I've felt with put repco specials in when they comply the cars.

I have been using " Remsa " brake pads in my coupe...

Done two playdays without any problems..Not yet half worn..No fade at my casual pace..

Work well when cold on road..

Fitted to a lot of euro's as OEM...

Best of all available for around $50 retail for most models...Thats for 4 pads..

Match them to your $100 zetum zu tyres @ 100 each..= $500 for new tyres and pads...Winner...
