Yes to all except M-Tuned rear. NLA'd, we will have our own version of that bracket available later this summer.

Got a pad recommendation to "start" with? Bar is set pretty low by the EBC Yellows currently on the car, but i do like them well enough. Probably because i don't know any better. PF, Hawk, or G-Loc i have no preference between as long as they're readily available.

Application i'm aiming for is HPDE and occasional autox, though i don't care in the slightest if they're optimized or work well for autox.
If you need enough heat capacity for track use but don't want to swap pads, GLOC R-series is your only option. R8 or R12 depending on your power and experience level (how fast you are).

Oof so i'm stuck with running Sport stuff in the rear in the meantime, which means GLOC in general is my only option, right?

Are the R series the ones that require the annoying bedding?

They all require the annoying bedding, it transfers a layer of material to the rotor, that's why they work as well as they do. Any pad which is less annoying to bed will either destroy your wheels and paint with caustic brake dust, or not stop the car when they are cold, or overheat on track, or some unpleasant combination of those three attributes.

Is the bedding process something that needs to be repeated every now and then on a high-power street car?

Is this the .49 pad or the .60 pad? Options for either?

The bedding in goes away from street driving. I can tell when my pads bedding in needs redoing as the brakes start to squeal. And I only redo them just before I get on the track, it would be pointless to do it and then drive around on the street again.

So it looks like I will need to swap my R8 pads for the Hawk HP+ for street driving then.

PFC'S will do both well but are pricier than the HP+

I have a potential hookup for some used factory NB 15" wheels for cheapo tires and long road trips but he's a real long drive to pick them up and I have the car in storage - Does anyone know if the NB OEM wheels will fit over the 11.75" bbk? Attached an image for clarification.

I doubt the 15s will clear. Maybe the 16s?

I know the NB 15" fit the DynaproRadial 11.17" radially but would need 20mm spacer or so to clear the spokes. It was possible to slide them on the ARP studs at least
Others might give the grief about the axial Dynapro or Dynalite.

There is no way a stock 15x6 will clear the 11.75s. Stock 16s will.

Fitment templates for the two common caliper options (Dynapro and Superlite) have been uploaded to the website. Print, verify dimensions, transfer onto cardboard, and check away. The outlines include 2.5mm of clearance on top of the silhouette of the caliper.

Did we ever confirm whether these fit under 15x8 Konig Dial In?
