    Which ones do I use?

    Read the descriptions on each pad and you could go for any of them?

    These are to replace the rs29's I have now which i'm not getting on with too well.

    Don't care about noise but they have to bite hard and never fade.

    Have you thought about trying RST3? I find them much better

    If I was going Endless i'd probably go for the ME22. But worth finding out what options you have for your calipers

    what are these mate? another padgid?

    I was thinking endless because they use them in the rent4ring swifts and the bite, despite being single callipers all round, is way stronger than mine. Any links will help btw.

    Yeah it's a sprint pad from pagid. Available from Martin as always. Harder on the discs but the bite is so much better. I've been alternating between the two as I had some RS29's to finish off and the RST3 is a much better bite. The 29's just feel like they aren't going to stop sometimes.

    Also the swift is obviously a much lighter car, it's going to stop better than ours

    Ferodo ds1.11's are better than all the pagids for bit and fad imo. Terrible for dust and noise though even for a track pad. But i live with the squeal and dust. I have RST3's on the front of mine at the moment and they are shite in comparison in terms of bite

    I have a set of Raybestos Pads from Malcolm and they are excellent. Better initial bite then RS29 and
    no fade whatsoever . Not to bad with squeal either.

    Not getting on with the rs29's pal? I love mine, take a kicking evertime and last as well as my mates RS4 on ceramics on track.

    Brakes are very personal though...

    i'm holding back on the DS pads because the 2500 are terrible and overrated.

    Yeh i'm not keen on rs29. The pedal needs a pump every time I use them. Changed fluid twice now and its not solved and people mentioned the pads.

    Used nothing but RS29 on my M3 and I was very happy with them, strong and constant. The new owners are using the BTCC pads I gave them with the car and they say they’re even better.

    The car has the CP5555 AP caliper up front, but modified with stainless pistons and titanium shims.

    Sounds like it is kicking the pads back if you have to pump it before you get breaks!! Could be a bearing or a warped disc??

    2500's are good for a fast road/hillclimb or sprint pad but not for long trackdays, the ds1.11's are significantly different and use in many open wheelers for example
