just fitted them and bedded...

tested them from about 120lph down to 30 and was very impressed.

Doing a track day tomorrow, so i will update on fade etc.

New 5.1 fluid too.

They are a BIG BIG improvement over the setup that was on the car when i got it. The pads looked std, the pistons were filthy, and the fluid was manky.

I had some Performance Friction discs on an evo before, they were a 2 piece fully floating direct replacement disc, this was combined with their fast road/track pads,and used with the evo's brembo calipers, they were absolutly fantastic.

I did numerous trackdays around the UK, and used the car on the road aswell.
They just never ever distorted even after all the hammer i gave them on the track... no fade either!!
They were quiet aswell.....which pleased the missus when she went to the shops

There really wasnt any need for a big brake kit, these performed just aswell, plus i didnt have to shell 2k out on something like an AP kit!!!

I'm hoping they release something for the skyline, i would like to use the brakes on my r32 aswell!

my temp setup.....

All std R32 sizes

Refurbed Calipers (front/rear)
5.1 fluid
Ferrodo DS3000 pads front
OE rear pads
Project Mu SCR discs front
OE rear
APP braided lines front/rear
MS Stopper

just bedded the discs in and quite impressed. Like completly different brakes from when i bought the car. They were shocking, now they feel great and stop very well. I think a lot of folk binning there R32 setups should maybe attempt some work on the first, before deciding they are shit and spending 1k+ on 6+pots. They feel more than up for my stage1'ish car.

Pads are too much for a daily car i'd think though LOL

Standard R32 setup and they are crap but need cleaning etc like Adam says.

One thing worth mentioning. When the R32 went around nurburgring in 8:22 it had the 16" rims so I can only believe they where the standard brakes!

So why did Nissan stick the bigger brakes on as soon as they could stick 17" wheels on? (This is somthing to do with the regulations for the race events they had entered ristricting the R32 to 16" rims) I can only conclude they do not last and 8 mins of racing is not 40mins on a track!
