Point taken - as long as you have bedded your pads in sufficiently before working them really hard. It's more of a problem with new-ish pads (although pads that have been on for awhile, but only used lightly, can still green fade when pushed). IMHO, green fade or out-gassing takes a higher priority than other types of fade because it can come on suddenly and can't be compensated for with pedal pressure the same way as pad fade and fluid fade.FF Drifter said:No, cross drilling and/or slotting is not crap. But honestly, when are you gonna drive your car hard enough that they would actually help? Besides wearing down your pads faster (this is an extra bitch if you have really expensive pads by Brembo or Nismo or something), cross drilling and/or slotting is never a replacement for getting bigger rotors. Bigger rotors are the true brake performance upgrade. Cross drilling/slotting is mostly a visual upgrade because honestly, when are you gonna do 0-100-0 mph tests *like Motor Trend* all day long? Even autocrossing won't require cross drilled/slotted rotors (unless you really ARE doing it all day).
By all means, if you need it, go for it. I just feel like most people who get them *cough, Hondas* don't really need them.
Had a quick skim through that link and didn't find that bit ........ enlighten me, please :-\jayntguru said:Outgassing hasn't been a problem with brake pads since the 1960's.
I went with the Rotex metal masters they were $58 front and $56 rear. I went through Brake Warehouse.1PhatG said:Where can I get the Axxis Ulitmate brake pads? The brake warehouse said that there isn't an application for my 94 G20? I would like to get both the front and rear sets if available.
