OEM Brake longevity?
 
Hi,
Im coming upto to 3years ownership. In that time ive done 8.5k miles. No track days, all road miles withgood percentage of spirited drives.

Does anyone know how long the brakes hold up with this type of driving, forgot to ask on last service, and with 36monther coming plus a few litchfield upgrades didnt want a surprise 3k jumping out the woodwork too.

PS my Dunlops are just ready for changing at 8.5k

Mine lasted till 16k, with a few track days / training days. I think your safe.

11k miles here, according to my last service they all looked like new :) I must be doing something wrong.

8K for mine, however killed them under extreme conditions (VMAX) & swapped out for DBA Discs & Pagid RS29 pads. Never looked back after that as the setup was epic on the road & track:)

Mine was still on originals at 28,0000 miles. Some pod runs and vmax done also.

Just don't use them and your fine :cool:

Changed the front discs and pads on mine at 18 months and 16k for AP discs and carbonetic c-spec pads.

OEM discs were cracking!

Stevie76 9th March 2012 07:50 PM

Hmmm....mine lasted 4.5k....discs cracked real bad and pads literally fell apart :runaway:

Don't know - upgraed to the Alcon BBK as I knew the brakes were the weak point of the GTR

Christ I must not be driving mine hard enough, I always thought the brakes were good lol

Steve 15th March 2012 09:47 PM

TBH, the standard brakes are goo for fast road use but were always suspect to cracking as they were drilled. I do a lot of track work and wanted the best from the start, so changed the OEM brakes after about 3k miles

OldBob 15th March 2012 09:53 PM

15K done, only 1 track day, front discs are cracking and pretty much started at about 9K, enough pad meat left by the looks of it (tbc) to scrub them at the Ring for 3 days and get home, then in for service, Alcon front rotors and yet tbd (prob pagid's) pads all round.
