It looks like dtc 30's last about 3-hours, lol. I now have Performance Friction 97's on. Time to start using real endurance pads.

in order to appropriately chronical my list of regrets in their entirety, here is my recent brake failure diatribe:

3-hours on DTC-30:

It all started with pad taper on Carbotechs where they lasted about 1-hour on the track.
then it was sticking slider pins
then a pad broke off the backing plate
then it was pad "knockback" but didn't know it
then I switched to the wilwoods
then it was a bad master cylinder
realized I had a bad bearing on the passenger side causing "knockback"
then it was chronic leaking wilwood calipers...only 8-failure points on each caliper!!!!!!
realized the DTC-30's are too "cold"
switched to PFC-97 and on the same day had what I only guess is a sticky piston and smoked the pad, rotor, and got the caliper hot enough for a rebuild
then I took the wilwoods off and drank a lot of beer, and I mean a lot
then I realized my knockback problem was probably a bad bearing on the driver's side too

I'm going to buy the cheap Racing Brake rotors and run the wilwood calipers. I think this will work and keep my wallet alive.

You need:
- cooling for your brakes
- less weight in your car
- brake less

I will have ABS-aware 3" ducting spindle plates with ducting and blowers for a reason.

Ducting with spindle plates? It's only 5% effective without it.
Also, there is a reason we're upgrading the RingMazda to V8R 11.75" 6pots...

9-10 if you count the brake line with fitting into the caliper. I had the same problem with the brass fittings holding the bleeder screws leaking on the wilwoods. All fittings on the passenger side would spin by hand halfway through one track day and fluid was coating everything.

Nice, when'd you pick that up?

Was that the one he had laying around or is he making more?

Easy to put ducting on?

Dibs on you old skin and lip?

Because of your testosterone deficiency.

It looks better, gets most of the air off the tires, larger openings for brake ducts which now have fiberglass one-offs, and it looks cool.
