Has anyone replaced pads / other bits of the brakes via an HPC yet.

If so how much was it.

Thanks

When mine go, I'll be fitting AP rotors, and possible carbotech x8 or x10 pads.

No way I'd buy the over expensive OEM rotors.

MH will happily fit them though.

Here's another question for the more technical out there.....

Can any decent mechainc change the rotos and pads, or is the job more technical and requires a specialist in GTR stuff?

TIA :)

You can do it yourself if you have basic tools.......very simple job,but yeah,Nissan needs a specialist for it who needs to learn 6 weeks how to do it...

Middlehurst sell the AP slotted discs for under £300 each which half the price of the Nissan ones.

Jury's out on the best pads though. The Ferodo DS2500s they supplied are fine for the road (although I preferred the bite and modulation of the stock ones) but are not up to proper track use.

Sumo do an unbelievable deal on the Do-Luck braided brake lines; I'm going to see them shortly to get a set fitted as well as trying EBC Yellowstuff pads.

Too early to say yet, but they're better than the DS2500s on the road.
More bite at low pedal pressures and easy to modulate.

Track day on the 21st will show their true mettle.

Hi David - How are you getting on with the Yellowstuff pads? Were they ok on the track and is the dust manageable?

Now they've properly bedded in, they're actually very good.
Fade and judder free, low dust, no noise. A fantastic all purpose pad.

Not the ultimate bite and stopping power of a true race pad, but it's a very good compromise and is very well priced too.

Great to hear that David.

I'm still bedding my yellowstuff pads in but they are just so far so good.

Zero squeal and very similar in feel to the OEM pads, possibly a bit more early bite.

All in all, so far I'm very happy with pads costing a fraction of the OEM ones...

Thanks v much guys, I'll go for some of these next time then. I've been running the Performance Friction pads up front since upgrading to Alcon discs but the dust is driving me loopy. Great stopping power across the temperature range but they're trashing my front wheels. It now takes longer to clean the front wheels properly than cleaning the rest of the car!
