I have a mate who drives a 206 gti....terribly nice bloke, but a bit lost.
Anyway, on the discussion of brakes, he said EBC geenstuff were crap, i agreed, he said red stuff were crap....fair enough...then 1144s were crap, ds2000s were not good enough.....the list goes onto 600deg C rated pads. Problem is that he says that he experienced braked fade with all of these pads!!!
i use 1144s on the track and have never experienced fade at all.
Hes currently running OMP 8000deg C pads !!!!!!
their rated he says from 100-800! no way can a pad cover that operating temp!
so i tell him your never gonna get near 800deg....even in race conditions were talking GT spec pads. i said your not even gonna get near 500 deg on the road.
he wont listen and says the inital bite is great...utter bull....from cold!!
i say its his brake fluid thats wet as he has not changed it in 3yrs or so, and humidity is around 90% all the time here! i think his flud is just boiling at around 300+ deg....so he experiences fade.
no real point to this, just wanna show him the posts you reply.....no swearing please.
linton! you know!!!
