I am thinking its time to replace the brake pads. I did a search a found that most people are running axxis, bobcats, or green stuff replacement pads. Just wondering which one is the best or if I am missing one that I should know about. Also, where did you get your pads? and how much did you pay?

PS also heard that the brakes need to be bled and have the fluid changed every 20,000 miles. Is that true?

Thanks. -Mike-

most ppl believe (iirc) that the axis pads produce too much dust...
EBC.. i dunno, i dont hear about a lot of people trying those, someone i know of personally calls EBC the devil...
fwiw i have hawk pads, and i like em...

also might want to get some new rotors if you are going to pick an agressive pad.

I just hit 30K ( On the track at Hyperfest! )

I replaced my pads with Carbotech Bobcats. Slightly more dusting than stock, but a heck of allot better. I ran 2 20-25 minute sessions and had no fade.

You can get Bobcats for 200ish depending on the vendor. The really nice thing is that you dont have to get your rotors turned if they are not warped. They are hard enough to take off any stock brake pad deposits, but soft enough to be kind to your rotors.
