After tracking yesterday, low speed drag improved. Ricky, only metal clips I see are the ones like the stock pads, aren't those needed to keep the pads in place?
BTW, they worked GREAT on the track. Zero pad transfer, no fade during all four 25 minute sessions. I don't call Buttonwillow a heavy braking track, moost of the areas are either wide open or technical. Even after dropping from 120 to 50 mph, the brakes felt good for the next few stops. Intructors were impressed with the bite, after getting the feel for them they really helped stopping in a smoother/cleaner fashion from high speeds for turn in. Worth 700, not sure haven't compared them to other pads yet.
Nitto's were good, but my first r-comp tires took a few sessions to learn how to feel them. When the pressure is right the grip is incredible. Now for more days to keep learning.
Thanks for the help guys, all DIY and posts from other members really helped getting the car setup, felt great. Still want to do brake ducts, adventure for another day.
