Haha... thanks for that input.

The Miata will not be a daily, I misspoke there. But it WILL be street driven, on weekends, and probably to work once in a while. It sounds like you've answered my question though -- basic street driving is still fine, but it's not a daily pad, which makes sense.

Thanks for the help. I'm obviously not very familiar with PFC (and in the early stages of learning about pads in general) so this is very helpful for me.

What about powder coated wheels? Will the brake dust rust those? Or does the brake dust itself rust?

the dust rusts. the aluminum itself won't rust. once it gets rust it's a real pita to remove. elbow geese won't cut it. the rust embeds itself into the aluminum, paint, power coat, ect.. .

they are not as bad as other manufactures. i say they squeak so if they do make noise once in a while customers aren't upset. It a good habit to under promise and over deliver.

If we do care about the dust, does PFC have a street pad that can be alternated with the 97's on the same rotors?

Bumping this with a question, I'm ordering pads this week.

Planning on PFC 97 on the front (949 11.75 BBK), but what do I run on the rear? I've got sport rear brakes. I don't see a fitment listed above for the sport rears.

Thanks in advance!

Something I just found out is you can run a non sports brake caliper on a sports brake bracket. And its what's recommended in conjunction with the BBK if you don't have big aero.

this.

there is nothing available (padgid or PFC) for sport calipers. many people have been modifying 1.8l rear pads to fit.

An on topic question what tires are you using? i'm a little worried about the 97 compound selection.

Oops. That was supposed to he a question. I wanted to hear your thoughts on it.

He's running like federal 959s or something? Street tire.

On running aero? It's all about balance high speed vs low speed.
for an extreme example, when the DP teams they still had iron rotors. carbon carbon came in after the grand-am ALMS merger. a DP car around Daytona going into turn 1 (200mph- 70mph) had so much down-force that the drivers could stab the brakes with both feet and they couldn't lock the tire. As the car got closer to the apex the downforce would decrease, the tires coefficient of friction would decrease, the driver has to decrease his pedal force to stop the tires from locking up. The trick was balancing out a system that could slow the car fast enough into turn 1 ( a big passing zone) but still have enough usable friction to have good modulation in the slower turns. The difference between our cars and a DP is DPís have the advantage of cash. That cash pays for wind tunnel testing. We donít have that cash to achieve the perfect aero balance On our Miataís the trend is big wings. so our aero balance is going to be heavy in the rear. if youíre on a very fast track that has a majority 60+ mph braking zones I could start recommending higher Tq pad in the rear to take advantage of the down-force. the down side of a set up like this. is when the aero stops being effective (under 60 mph) your braking balance is going to shift to the rear. so to recommend a brake set up I would need to see how your aero is balanced, what track your running, and what youíre looking for as far as balance.

So without aero using the sport calipers over torques the rear brakes? So using the normal caliper with sport rotors is better for balance?

I was planning on the 97 compound per your recommendation in this thread. These are the tires I'm running: Federal Tyres - UHP - 595RS-R

My understanding is that they're supposed to be comparable to an RS3 or Rival in terms of grip, but I don't really know.

For running the regular 1.8 calipers on sport rotors there's some other adapter needed, no?

I'm not trying to clutter this thread, this is just regarded as the hot brake setup so it'd be good to know your recommended PFC setup. Curly recommended DTC 60s front and DTC 30s rear on these brakes.

Oh, and as of now I'm not running any aero. Stock front undertray and nb1 sport front lip which probably doesn't do anything.

From what I've gathered recently you can use your sport brake bracket on the 1.8 caliper to put it on sport rotors.
