Question Where to find AXXIS Utimate Pads

I am looking to replace my factory pads with something a little more aggressive and able to make it through a Car Guys 2 day driving school. I have heard really good things about the Axxis Ultimate pads but can't find them in stock anywhere. I checked with Carbontech Engineering and they did not know when they would get them in.

Please let me know if you guys have any ideas.

Thanks,

Thanks Jamie,

I took a look at their website and saw the Metal Masters but not the Ultimates. Do you know if they are the same?

Thanks
Mike

The MetalMasters are not the same as the Ultimates. The Ultimates are newer, and are more capable at higher temps. However, if you're going to the track, I really don't think an Axxis Ultimate is going to cut it. On my Integra, I ran Hawk HP+ on the street and switched to Hawk Blues at the track. I ran the HP+ once on track and got maybe 2-3 hard laps out of them before they faded into oblivion. A bit of a pain in the butt to be switching brakes at the track, but with a little practice, I got it down to around 20-30 minutes swapping front rotors and pads. It was worth it to me to have brakes that would stand the car on its nose for the entire session. Carbotech Panther Plus have been getting good reviews as a pad that is "streetable" and does well on the track. It is primarily a track pad and delivers exceptional braking there (the opinions of a number of friends who run ITRs on the track) while not tearing up rotors on the street. My understanding is that they do wear relatively quickly on the street, but they might be along the lines of what you're looking for.

They are made in Australia, if you get stuck.

Default AXXIS Ultimate and Other WRX Brake Parts

StopTech was the first North American distributor for the AXXIS Ultimate pad compound and carries a large inventory across the board for different vehicles. The Ultimate compound is not yet available for the WRX, but we have been in contact with the factory about making it available. The Metal Master compounds typically are available for the WRX.

ChrisDP gave a very accurate description of the Metal Master vs. Ultimate. The M-Master is a great street performance pad, the Ultimate is even more so with more bite and an exceptional Maximum Operating Temperature for a street performance pad that also has great cold stopping power. His experience with Hawk street and track pads also reflects our experience with those compounds. We "HIGHLY" recommend swapping to track pads for open track events, as virtually every street pads will be driven beyond it's limits, even when the driver is "taking it easy".

In addition to our big brake upgrades and stainless steel brake lines, we also carry Hawk products, as well as our own race and street friction.

We are currently updating our website to reflect all our Subaru offerings. You will also find a wealth of brake related information on the Technical section of our site.

If you have any questions about WRX brakes, or brakes in general, please feel free to contact us.

Default StopTech Website Updates

I apologize for your inconvenience with trying to order pads from our website. We have recently added hundreds of additional part numbers and new pricing, and you've pointed out one that got past me.

I am personally working on updating our Subaru product listings, and hopefully by the end of the day Friday there will be a lot more pads entered (as well as other corrections you pointed out for us).

By the way, the pad part number you placed in your shopping cart was for our StopTech ST-40 caliper that we use in our big brake upgrades. Were you looking for Subaru pads specifically? As stated, we do not yet have Ultimate pads for the WRX.

Did you happen to check out any of our technical white papers while visiting the website?

As always, your constructive input is always welcome.

Best Regards-

Matt,

You are addressing a tough audience. Thanks for teaming up with Gary Sheehan and Team SMR. Any sponsor of that guy gets my business.
