Brake Fade

Hi All,

I now have the Tarox F2000 discs and Tarox Corsa Pads all round fitted to the 75. Having adjusted the rear calipers and bled the brakes a few times (using new, but off-the-shelf fluid). We now have a decent enough pedal and effective brakes. However, we are still getting marked fade after only a few stops from speed, which is a bit disappointing. We have removed the front fogs and made some brake ducts up which direct air to the back of the caliper, which may help. I just wondered if anyone else had encounted fade and had any thoughts or tips.

Re: Brake Fade

Try DS3000,s and SRF brake fluid together with those discs and ducting, possibly have braided hoses fitted and they should be man enough for most applications. Thats what I had on my 75 and they were superb, especially after removing a set of glazed EBC red stuffs from the calipers the difference was night and day.
