Quite simply, who is using what brands / combo's of discs and pads.

Who would you recommend and avoid ?

Thanks.

Brembo solid discs, rc8 pads, ate blue fluid & 25+ fast laps we're no problem to them.

As Chris suggests but I use the RC6 and can do 20+ laps with no issue or fade

On standard calipers I thought brembo max discs, pagid rs-4 pads and motul 600 fluid was pretty impressive with little fade after 30 laps.

I have now changed to AP CP5200 4 pot calipers, DS2500 pads and scenic 300mm black diamond grooved discs. Still to try them yet but should have good stopping power.

Thanks guys. I've actually been surprised by how little / no fade I've had even from the 'standard' brakes that ate on the car. Doing the reverse the other night I really thought I'd have brake fade big time. But I was out for sometimes half an hour + and no real dramas.

Just need to. Ow decide if it's going to be the track car for me. Seems slow.
