I would think you'd be best served to get a wilwood kit for the ND, then just put PFC pads in that.

Or go with the GWR stuff.

I would agree. Best option and what survives track abuse is our 12.88" BBK and then you've got the best thermal capacity plus affordable pads moving forward. You can put baller pads in the factory brakes, but the brake system is still limited; we can warp a set of standard rotors in one day at a brake-heavy track.

you can hijack all you want. pads are about consistency. a good quality pad in a stock system will still be very consistent. larger rotors and better calipers are about reducing drag and increasing parts longevity (reducing operating cost)

PFC ZR94 Calipers Show Their True Versatility


Driver Tom Patton in his Sunbeam Tiger took home the SCCA GT-2 Conference Championship title back in May with PFC's ZR34 caliper package.

Patton will soon equip PFC's all new ZR94 caliper for his Sunbeam--a new and improved version of the ZR34. The new ZR94 features an internal fluid crossover tube, adding strength and weight while also providing a weight savings.



This caliper fits several short track dirt and asphalt applications, as well as those such as Patton's Sunbeam.

(In response to Johnny showing off his sweet TTU season ultra championship trophy thanks to PFC race pads! But that post is gone.)


Sorry but that proves absolutely nothing about the pads when you could have accomplished the same thing by renting a Prius and turning one parade lap at each of the events you attended. Congrats on your participation award I suppose.





There is an over/under on how long it takes you to delete this.

With a modest amount of effort, you could give yourself some actual competition. Wouldn't that help improve your driving more than turning hpde laps by yourself?

(This is the same argument being used against me continuing to run with NASA vs MaxxisCup, and it's pretty effective.)

Quit being so facetious. If MT is just full of **** talkers and you think everyone is wrong, then leave.

I can still see your Facebook even though you've blocked me.

I stay in that class because I can develop myself without worrying about tech or what modification will land me where. I just go out have some fun and sometimes nab a win. I do profusely apologize for making the post. it was wrong of me to compare myself to the other drivers that post are winning La mans, hard fought battles in SCCA, top contenders in their fields. I sometimes win uncontested, and sometimes come out dead last. To put myself as a driver in a class with those heroes is wrong, i wanted to say I'm sorry.
I posted the TTU championship win because it was Monday, the off season and it was the only PFC-related news available. Like I said am pleased to have won.
It's not a personal thing, it's just criticism. It was meant to be constructive, but clearly it missed the mark, and for that I apologize. If you are learning and growing as a driver at each event, then that's awesome and I encourage you to keep doing that. Maybe classing your car down into TT2 would give you some competition - I know that I always perform better with someone to chase. vs just lapping myself.

Agree with Andrew. A win is a win. Congrats.
I'd also agree that reclassing so that you can push yourself more in car development and as a driver could only yield positive things.

To anyone reading this wondering why it doesn't make sense, Johnny decided to delete his posts...

Congratulations to Justin Hille for winning the 2016 SCCA spec Miata national runoffs.

When reached for a comment about his braking selection he said "I ran PFC 97s" and simply "...I love the pads"
