Re: Carbon Pads
Every stop is a panic stop to me! keeps everything exciting. I would
say that it takes them a little longer to warm up but I don't mind. Also
the pads I used to race with are different than street spec pads. They
operated and required alot more heat than the streets do. I havent had
much hands on with a street car equiped with the carbon pads only carbon
pads on carbon disc which like alot of heat. The street car I have
driven with carbon pads did seem to like a little warming up but also did
seem to have better performance. This May we will be testing a mustang
with carbon-carbon for use on the street with limited track use also.
