    Is there any issue with using Pagids pads in the front and leaving the OE Textar pads in the rear? Front pads are worn so I need new - I'm ready for something more suited to DE than stock. Rear pads are fine, new last COTA DE with not much wear. What is the recommendation for Pagid material...

    Had the Tarrett caliper and brake line bracket studs installed several months ago to make swapping between street and track pads easier, and have changed pads a half dozen times so far with no issues. While I was putting my track pads in last night to prepare for a DE this weekend (PCA Potomac...

    I bought some Akebono Euro pads for my 987.1 Cayman S. Is it okay to use these pads with the factory rotors? My car has low miles so the rotors are still in good shape, but I wasn't sure if I still needed to replace them due to them being incompatible with the new carbon-ceramic pads. Thanks!

    Hi Everybody. I'm sort of new to Porsche ownership, although like many, it was something I had been dreaming of for many years. After almost giving up on the idea, I ended up buying a 2016 Cayman S, manual, only 3500 miles, coming off a 1 year lease, just a few months ago (and retrofitted the...

    I have posted here a few times and have received valuable info. I am continuing to act upon that info so I would like to share my next steps. The general observations aside from improving your driving habits, tires and brakes are the natural items to improve upon. Personally I have not...

    Yesterday I read an article in R&T concerning brakes/rotors and the track. If anyone is curious here is the URL: In the article they suggest replacing rotors any time you replace the pads...

    I had a McLaren 570S my last track day. In the first session it outran a GT3, but also used up a lot of the tires' grip. In the later sessions, a GT4 whipped my ***! I'm getting new pads and tires, but after seeing the GT4 doing what it was made for, I give it max respect.

    First a thanks to all the postings about replacing pads, especially the videos (e.g. Dan Day, and the AUTODOC people). I wanted to share things I learned from this experience. I needed to replace my pads for my 1st upcoming track day. The rear pads had about 50% material left but the fronts...

    I usually use Pagid RS29s for the track, but wanted to switch to pads that are decent on track but could be used on the street which aren't too noisy or extremely hard on rotors. Are RS29s ok for that? Or do you have a suggestion on less hardcore pads that could be a reasonable dual duty...

    I replaced front and rear pads and rotors. All the new pads had the hole drilled in them for wear sensors. The textar pads that came off all had the probe-type wear sensors, but the new Porsche front sensors were a pad-type that looked like they would never even touch the rotor. The new rear...

    Now that our cars have been out for a while, does anyone know of a low dusting brake pad, for daily driving, for our 981 base models? Looking for low/no dust no squeal pads. Thanks

    I’m driving three days at COTA next weekend in Blue (novice – instructed) and want opinions on whether my new OE Textar front pads will be upto the back straight challenge. I expect ~130mph before braking, maybe an occasional 140mph if no traffic. I would think my MPSS would be the limiting...

    I just replaced the front brake pads on my 2005 Boxster S. I put ceramic pads on not the OEM iron pads. The car only has 38k miles but i replaced the rotors also. I reused the brake sensors because they looked fine but my brake service light is now on. I rechecked the sensor install and it’s...

    Getting ready to replace pads. Anyone replace with Ceramic pads? Which brand and how was performance? I did this on my 986 BS and they were great.

    I use race pads on my 2014 CS (lately Performance Friction 08s) but the shop I use has never been able to get the pad wear sensor cables to work with non-OEM pads. To avoid triggering a warning light, they just zip-tie the sensor cables out of the away. Anybody else have this problem, or...

    I am changing my brake pads and rotors myself did not want to pay $3,000 to the stealer :hilarious: Once I am done changing all pads and rotors do I need to do a brake fluid flush? is it a must to do it immediately? Thank you.
