Good Product With Increased Performance

Posted: Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

As a former SCCA and RAC (Royal Auto Club) formula car driver (F Vee and F Ford) I like to think I know something about brake performance. The quality of the brake components, i.e., rotors, pads, etc., appears to be good and all the parts fit on my 2004 Acura MDX with no problem. I think we had all four rotors and pads installed in less than 90 minutes. I didn’t use the supplied clips or dust caps as the old ones were fine. I followed the bed-in procedure described by the manufacturer and cannot emphasize how important this is because if you don’t do it right, the braking performance will be degraded to some extent. Yes, they will work, but not as well as if you did the job right. I estimate a 10 to 15% improvement in braking performance and several weeks later, I have great confidence in my ability to stop my car. As crazy as it sounds, that is how you go faster.
