Thoughts on brake pads for UK roads
I'll be replacing the discs and pads all round later in the year and have been considering what to put on there. (2005 STi, Brembo gold calipers)
I dont track the Foz so I'm aiming for a fast road setup, but in saying that I would be on the mildly fast side of that rather then the balls out at all times side. So some aggressive braking at times but not 100 down to 20 multiple times kind of thing
I'm fine in spending the money to get a performance setup but not the £150+ prices of some pads that I've seen!
Form readings on this forum and Scoobynet I'm swaying towards the high carbon Brembo discs with the Brembo sport pads, the other pad option was the Performance Friction Z rated but in comparison the Brembo sport was said to be the better fast road pad with the PFZ pad more biased towards fast road with occasional track use.
Its hard to find any kinds of testing results for the discs/pads in direct comparison so I'm open to what others have to say about their thoughts on the matter.
