I like Motul, awesome fluid. Currently using ATE Super Blue which I'm going to swap out, the Castrol stuff is supposed to be up there as well. Good price, cheaper than Motul (not as good) but more expensive than ATE from memory.

Anyone doing track days or hard driving should jump on it and pick up some pads *cough* pagids *cough

I'm running the Ferodo DS3000

What Motul are you running? The SRF runs rings around the RBF600 & RBF660 as far as I am concerned for performance and consistent pedal feel after a day at our local track.

My Ride: E46 328, Jza80 Supra
Whilst the srf is comparable to rbf600 in terms of dry boiling point. 310 deg celcuis

the wet boiling point (in deg celcuis) is a fair bit higher. 270 SRF vs 214 RBF 600

So the SRF is better, and i think it resists water absorbtion more than the RBF600 too. So for street driving u need to change ur fluid less frequently. (kinda good when its just over $100 a litre)

that said ive got RBF600 in the supra now. Ill change to Castrol next time though probably

Nice bottle of SRF Stephen! I wonder who took the other bottle haha

Dwayne, how long have you been using the DS3000s on the road? I used to just leave them in my car but they squeal way too much in warmish weather or after a few stops...

Have you heard about Solid brake guides? They're meant to significantly reduce the squealing from track pads to manageable levels for street driving...

I'm planning to go back to a more hardcore pad with these and also some titanium backing plates!!

Running for 1.5 weeks now. Besides road trips a few times a year and half a dozen track days a year, the BMW would be lucky to see 40km a month on the road so having it sound like a HQ holden when I put the brakes on doesn't worry me too much.

Having said that, when I get 30 minutes the wheels are coming off and the OEM's are going back in so I don't waste the pads.

Keen to hear what you think of them when you get them in.
