Brake Pad Review: Stoptech, Ferrodo, Project Mu, Carbotech, G-LOC

Stoptech: Emits very little dust, easy to clean. Less bite and friction compared to stock. Will last longer than stock.

Ferrodo 2500: The next step to upgrading stopping power from stock. Will emit slightly less dust than stock, again slightly. Provides a little more friction compared to stock.

Project MU Club Racer (Race Pad): Good entry level race pads. Price is OK, lower than the higher end pads as you would expect. Provides significantly more bite than street pads. They are noisy when cold. Emits a lot of dust. A bit harsh on rotors if you have a powerful car and brake hard. (TI shims recommended if tracking)

Project MU HC+ 800 (used in the rear): Decent double duty pad. They dont like alot of heat, will glaze if tracked hard. Price is good for a pad with good bite, will not be good as a front pad on our heavy cars. (TI shims recommended if tracking)

Carbotec XP12 (Race Pad | Streetable): Awesome bite, awesome stopping power. Emits a lot of dust but is very easy to clean. Dont make much noise even when cold. Not too hard on the rotor. If you make over 420whp, when you wear the pad down under 40% they will over heat if tracked hard, even with TI shims, our cars are very heavy.

G-LOC R18 The next pads I'm using. I will update this post after a few track days.

Thanks for the review! What was your experience with noise on the Project MU HC+800? I ran these on my S2000, but wasn't able to use them on street because of the amount of noise.

They did make noise but not alot. If they make alot of noise they are glazed. I would not use them in the front at the track.

If brake pads are noisy, they're not cleaned and lubed correctly.

Thats the case sometime. And if by cleaned you mean clean the years of brake dust build up, maybe.

Most of the time when you have noise it is either the pads aren't bedded in correctly or the pads are glazed.

Some racing pads make noise when cold point blank.

This is a great review. Unfortunately it came after i spent 300 millions on a set of oem Brembo's which says in the box made by Ferrodo. I've heard the same thing before buying it; But in regards of your post when u mentioned Ferrodo 2500 u meant to say the OEM's?

Thanks man. The 2500 has a little bit different pad material. Its a little better than the OEM ones. Remember the oem have to be mass produced. Then you pay brembo tax.

Lol, that was silly of you. I never get OEM brakes after mine are done... overpriced stuff. They are good though, but still overpriced.

^This

I ran endless MX72 pads for awhile...they were impressive.

Also, on a car we sponsor, we installed Raybestos st43s. They are pure insanity.
