Lucas pad warning
I redid the brakes on the TQC last week with some really cool cross
drilled brembo's (grin), and a new set of pads. Well, the pads were
Lucas, and I have never tried them before, but being open to new things,
it was worth a try.
THESE THINGS SUCK!!!
When they heat up, they do not grab, and no matter how hard you push, you
wont stop the car. Yesterday I had 4 people in the car, and for all
intents and purposes I had no brakes at all. Repco's or others I have
never had a problem, and I wasnt even driving hard!
I took some temp readings (Ohmega scope, IR surface temp reader) and the
rotors were nice and cool but the pads were holding the heat like crazy.
Has anyone else seen this with Lucas pads?
