    Default Competition Friction

    Just want to share with you the excellent service I recieved from Nicholas at Competition Friction.

    Nicholas discussed diferent varieties of brake pads available for track work and we both decided to settle on DS3000s as this will suit a dedicated track car. It will also overcome my rear lock ups as I will need less brake pressure as the front friction will be very high. Obviously a brake bias adjuster would be the best solution as Nicholas also recommended.

    What bias adjuster are you going to use? In a 90 model do you have the rear discs?

    Parry,

    its going to be good comparison for you with the EBC being your pad previously. With no other changes its almost back to back testing.


    Im still on my original Bendix Metal King+ pads. 50% worn so far. Talk about long wearing pad !
