    Does anyone have any experience of these brake pads? They look good value but would rather hear opinions before biting the bullet.

    Nope I’ll be going BBK if I decide to use mine on track, I don’t think the OEM brakes are up to the job for track work really.

    If you plan on going the OEM route I’d consider Pagid RS29’s as your best chance with Braided hoses and decent fluid.

    I've used them on brands indy.

    Held up fine on pf z pads for reasonable length runs. No fade even in hot weather. Tyres ps4s went off before brakes

    What’s the purpose of installing these pads?

    I've not used their pads, but i do have a set of their two piece discs and they are VERY good Them, with a set of Pagid RS29's and some decent fluid made for a very good track combination.

    I think I will try a set as they are pretty reasonable cost.

    I really rate the Z Rated. Fabulous pads. Sharp but not noisy. Held up to some serious braking at Brands. Makes me wonder why you need an upgrade as I did two 30mins stints without brake fade. I think a high temp brake fluid with these pads is the key.

    Its a no compromise solution without spending mega bucks on BBK. Also you get to use factory wear indicators unlike RS29.

    Another happy customer here. Very quiet on the road and held up well at the Nurburgring.

    I got mine from Kam racing.

    A quick update. I fitted these pads just before going to the ring along with Motul 660 fluid. I didn’t have any brake issues while there and, as also stated they are quiet on the road. I think for the money these are excellent pads although I have no experience with the more exotic pads these seemed more than adequate for my sort of usage. I bought mine from Evolve.
