I'm planning a follow up next weekend. Spoiler alert; corroded drop link studs are absolute total and utter b******s and the knocking noise I thought might be cured by replacing them is still very much present!
Brembo OE pads are utter dog s**t Mark, as you say you can feel the pad compressing. They're made of cheese!
Bluestuff will be a massive improvement, I'd say coefficient similar to DS2500 and Mintex M1155, but with better modulation and are very consistent in performance. They actually work from cold too.
I thought that the drilled discs accelerate pads wear as well ?
That is shocking performance from those pads!
Are the OEM pads too expensive or not very good on the Cayman? I have given mine some pretty heavy braking and it's never done anything like that, in fact both discs and pads lasted nearly as long as 3 sets of tyres (YMMV and all that).
f**k! Hopefully just a dodgy batch as obviously that’s nowhere near what you’d expect
Surely there is some manufacturing defect going on there?!
What make were the pads you took out? They could be the ideal compromise.
Excellent peddling Mark, you look super smooth!
I had Brembo pads on the Evo when I bought it and I wasn't confident with them on the road let alone the heat you're putting through them in the video lol
And he looks good driving
Is it not concerning that you've got uneven pad wear?
