    Re: Brake pads

    OEM are the best. I'm reverting back to them as the Brembo SC don't feel as good.

    Fwiw, My second set of SC's feel epic, it pays to have material build up on the discs imo.

    On track the SC didn't have the initial bite and also I had to adjust the span every session. The pad surface also seemed to have some build up on the faces. Will try again next track day.

    Thatís a good sign that you may need to replace your brake fluid with something more suitable for track use. Or simply change it for fresh brake fluid.

    Re: Brake pads

    I fitted SCs yesterday (my first change from standard pads). After a bedding in run they feel superb, with excellent initial bite.

    Is that road use? They do feel good but on track I just feel they are not as good. Will chance the fluid then try again.

    I would also check the pistons. If one is a bit draggy you could get inconsistency. I am also wondering if your pads glazed.
