Everyone wants race capable pads that don t squeal and dust like crazy on the street. 15.5in ceramic rotors are the only real solution. For the rest of us invariably everyone ends up with a compromise that leans one way or the other. These pads lean pretty far toward the race spectrum.
First impressions- they were noisy as hell on the street, they re graby when cold, and they shot sparks at night while bedding in the pads.
They were awful on the street, so I figured they must be awesome on track. I wasn t wrong, they were decent on track. No fade, and consistent pedal feel over two days at Road Atlanta. A track that is brutal on brakes. They did cause some severe shake from deposits on the rotors, but that came and went over the weekend.
Bonus- the track abuse fully bedded the brakes, so they don t whine or grab anymore, but........
The biggest downside to them is that the pads are essentially completely gone after 1 track weekend, all 4 centric rotors have lots of little heat cracks, and the left front rotor had one large crack in it.
So these are a one time use track pad that is somewhat streetable.
