Track/Race Brake pads...

TD brake pads. A friend recommended I pick up a front set of Carbone Lorraine XBK5s. Thoughts on these and recommendations on others from your experience? Thanks much.

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

Depending on your experience, RJL's are a good starting point.

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

TDs yes.

Yea, I heard a lot of good things about the Vesrahs....mainly they're the best. I may just wear my stock pads a lil before buying some new pads, but I'll probably go with the Vesrahs. You used EBC or Carbones before?

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

Vesrahs are good but if your stock ones have life just stick with those. Spend your money on brake lines if you haven't yet.

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

I used ebc before, I liked them. I don't think most people are fast enough to tell the difference between after market pads. Go with what you can get a good deal on.

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

anybody can tell the difference between stock and a good set of aftermarket. especially track guys.

i'm currently using the vesrah RJL's and they were a HUGE jump over stock. i was getting brake fade like crazy, then switched and noticed an IMMEDIATE difference. i was just BARELY outta the novice group at this point - if at all.

as for now, i think i'm used to the initial bite, and the stopping power, and would like to try something with a little more extended bite. my next set will be the ferodo XRAC's. even LESS fade b/c they have built in cooling points, and are a step or two up from the RJL's.

Thanks, I'll consider this when I'm at my TD next week. Maybe I'll just purchase some RJLs there.

Re: Track/Race Brake pads...

I'm currently running Ferodo XRAC (thanks to AGG), I went from stock brake pads and noticed a hugh difference after I used them for the first time at the track, it's worth it to change your pads regardless of how fast you are you will notice a difference
