I got a pretty good drive in on Sunday. Everything worked pretty well but even though they worked ok, I wasn't thrilled with the performance of the brakes. I would have expected more from the hydroboost.

What are people running in the way of pads? I think I have organics of unknown origin both front and back. I was thinking of at least switching to semi-metallics in the front.

Oh and PS, I seem to have a pretty severe traction issue with the rear tires :evil::devil:

How much pedal travel you have with HB...I have about 2" worth...less than 1/2 of the old vac booster....this is by feel and a good look not a actual tape measure...I doubt HB would take up much for pads...

Get some EBC reds, you'll like them better than what you have now.

Sorry to hear about your traction problem:lol:

TT, are the redstuff better than the hawk HP ferrocarbon(not the race or blue pads)? Looks like the redstuff is about half the price.

So was a local cop. At least he was a car guy. He did let me off eventually :kissass:
