Pandemic be damned, I finally got to test these pads on the track.

Tl;dr Great as dailies, no fade on the track!


Daily
First, daily drivability is just fine with these. Frankly, they are minimal noise and ran fine through the winter.

On Track
Second, got them on a road course track which is notoriously a brake killer. On my first session, I ran the brakes so hard I came off with smoking brakes and boiling fluid. BUT, not a moment of pad fade all day! Frankly, I didn’t cool off long enough as well after that session.

Moral: More agressive pads create more heat

I fixed my braking zones and was able to keep the system cool the rest of the track day (stock rotors and fluid). It was around 80 deg F.

Wear
During normal use, the pads are no more dusty than the stock Brembos. BUT, on track, the dust changed color, leaving me to believe they are chewing up the rotor. Not unexpected, to be honest.

Next up will be fluid and slotted rotors. Happy to hear any advice on that if you have it!
