marko said:why do you not want to use DS2500s for track? they are more than dequit if paired with some good disks, good brake lines and good fluid cheaper too
Trailbraker said:This is just idle musing but I wonder would the DS3000's actually be more likely to cause fade in your case?
e.g. they will certianly brake harder for a while, but presumably this will heat the disk up more which is likely your weak link in being able to shed the heat.
You might need Castrol SRF to avoid boiling even normal 300 BP upgraded fluid?
I don't know that all of the above defintely follows, but I don't know that it doesn't either
Changing pads on a Brembo / 4 pot setup is very easy - probably only takes about 10mins per side and most of that time is jacking up the car and removing the wheel.Trailbraker said:That said I may try DS3000's at some point, but I would probably change the pads at the track, and back again afterwards - once I familarize myself with the process, I have never changed a pad yet (lasy ba****d :lol
Cuore_Sportivo_155 said:the wrx wouldn't need the same size front brakes as the gta, since the weight is distributed more evenly between the front and the rear axle. I'm sure the rear brakes are bigger than the ones on the GTA.
Take a look at beemers also, they get relatively large rear brakes also (compared to FWD cars) due to the near 50/50 weight distribution.
