Center thickness isn't the problem- the rotor only comes close to
contacting the outside edges of the pads. I can't think of how to
explain it, except to take a pad, orient it how it would be installed
on the caliper "inside" the rotor, and take a rotor, and pretend to
put it on the car, remembering that the rotor goes on at an angle (if
I remember correctly, in terms of suspension terms, the rotor is put
on with enormous toe to slip onto the hub etc.)
I was chamfering the pad about half an inch wide I think? Not sure
Nathan- the R4 pad worked -great- at the track. Not even the
slightest hint of fading, and I kept braking harder and harder
finding more there. No idea/experience with the R4S.
From what people told me, Porterfield has a reputation for making
great, but expensive, pads.
