Hello,

Need advice on front rotors and pads; I have oem rotors and endless MX72, i resurfaced the rotor and then installed the pads and I am having a lot of vibrations.
I want to change them, please advise which rotors and pads to bye.
Thank you.

Hello Rainer, we have a custom brake pad available now that we typically use in conjunction with the AP j hook rotors. In testing these pads have lasted three to five times longer than the factory pads on a P800 gtr setup for track use.

Contact me for ordering details.

I see a lot of GT-Rs with vibration and people worried about them, then I drive their car hard for half an hour and everything is gone.
When using race pads they have to be operating in race conditions for some time to work well.

With floating rotors, its very unlikely to do something like warp a rotor. Much more likely to have some pad buildup than anything else.

AP J-Hooks and rebed your pads. Done. I would not suggest attempting to resurface the OEM rotors.

In stock if you need them. The MX72 is a great pad for street use, and theAP occasional track day. No noise or dust.

Brake pads are a personal preference based on how you use the car. There are different pads that work for different conditions.

There is no BEST pad. There is a pad that will work for certain conditions, but if you go outside those conditions, then you will need to find something else that will better meet those needs. For a street car guy with limited track time, the Ferodo DS2500's work great, and are in stock.

Hmm, i never road race or arnything, just run the 1/8 of a mile every few months.. and GMR every now and then.. Would you consider that "driving hard"
It all depends on how you drive. If you crack them, then you are driving hard. If you don't then you are not.

If you drive the car hard, you don't need to resurface them you have to replace them, because they crack. View attachment 32840 View attachment 32839
Damn, and I was hoping that only new (different, not OEM) pads would be needed if going to the track. ie. had heard of the backing and friction material separation issues when extremely hot, but didnt realise that the rotots were crap also.

Is this just because of them being crossed drilled or something else?
