I'm thinking about being daring.

Ever since I knackered my rear brakes and my front during a day of excessive break wear (some have their suspicions), I've been considering replacing the rear pads and skimming the discs.

Has anyone tried skimming the discs ? Does one need a special tool to do both sides at once (to ensure both faces are parrallel)or is it satisfactory to just run a tool along one side and the the other. Can you suggest a pad for the r32 caliper?

I replaced the front calipers with r33 ones. Can anyone recommend a good make of pad? I think the current ones are ferrodo but can't remember the model number. Doyou know that aswell please?

Yours hopefully

charlie

I changed my standard pads for a set of PAGIDs from Hiteq before my last trackday. They were loads better than standard, but I managed to warp the discs in under 250 miles.

I have decided that I am going to upgrade to AP 6 pots, as in the long run I don't think it will work out that much more expensive than replacing the standard discs and pads every couple of thousand miles, but should offer infinitely better braking performance.

Rod Bell put some DS2000's? on the front and Pagid's on the back. Miles better than the stock pads. Superb.
