Okay let's try this another way.... On a 3700lbs 5KCSTQ making around
300hp (For Now) Repco's Suck. Your talking about a 2500lbs (or less) car
that makes 110hp, Big difference (50% heavier and roughly 3 times the hp)
Repco's worked okay on my '81 coupe, not great but okay. Remember your
also talking about a Pad compound that has a cf of around .36 the CC
have anywhere between .48 and .54cf so the heat rejection potential has
been increased 60% for the pad alone. Anytime that a pad leaves SLAG on
the rotor it's just not up to the job, That's what the SlagMasters do,
Hence my and some others opinions.
