Do you think the fade is more from the calipers or the pads? Maybe if you tried different brake pads?

I took my car out again for a night drive in a some new roads that has just been freshly built. There was no one out for miles, and how I have faded the breaks again but this time it was more serious, b/c if i didnt have slowed down any sooner than i did i would have flew off a cliff and into the highway.

Now i am very dissapointed with them and am very unsatisfied with them. I will not recommend them at all. I have the axis's pads that it comes with which is supposed too be a street and race inbetweener, i have also check the break fluid which seems very clean. Stupid Rotora will not thell me what kinda of caliper it is so that i have to buy from them.

Sounds like you just need better pads and fluid.

"Stupid Rotora will not thell me what kinda of caliper it is so that i have to buy from them." What is this refering to?

Get some Carbotech Bobcat or Ferodo 2500 pads...
Get a hold of member 'CarbotechMatt'...he can get pads made for just about anything.
I use Motul 600RBF fluid and it works very well.

are you sure you know what brake fade is, brake fade and the pedal feel are two very different things, please make these things clear. big brake kits often out-brake the fluid, in terms of the fluid boiling. also rotora makes their own pads, STOPTECH uses axiss pads, the rotora pads perform better than the Axxis pads, fact. I'd like some kind of closure on this thread...
peace

you really ned to be more spefic by "braking alot and I mean alot"....if you ride ANY brake it will eventually fade....perhaps you are overusing your brakes? Or perhaps, as suggested, you simply need pads better suited to your intended driving conditions.

I tracked my rotora BBK and the only problem I had was boiling my fluid because I was running oem fluid.
