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.

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?

Yea, good call. I'll just wear out my stocks first since they have some life and since I'm not Rossi :)

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. :)

change your pads if you want to... :fact you won't regret it.

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

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

:stupic

Go get some brake lines & go Vesrah RJL's and you won't regret it. My brakes felt awesome on the track.

I have Fren Tubos, XRAC's and Motul RBF600 for fluid. My brakes felt better and better the harder I pushed it. No fade at all at the track yesterday.

the xracs are made to be pushed like that... that's why those cooling "buttons" are so important. more consistent "bite" throughout the session.

The faster I went and harder I pushed the better they seemed. Honestly I had zero concern about my brakes ability to stop me. That's coming from a newb though.
