IIRC, Endless pads are made to order, so I assume they can make it to fit the stock system

PM wwjd, he'll know.
He had a bunch of (sold) endless pads when I stopped by I Sunday

The MA45B is designed for track use. But there is no reason why you couldnīt use them on a daily basis. They might be not as good as OEM while they are cold but you will notice that literally just for the first braking after setting off. Otherwise be sure they will squel your ears of while braking softly at lower speed. And from what Iīve heard they will have a higher wastage either during city cruising. Anyway I still run my first pads and like them very much so far. Braking ist definitely much improved compared to OEM pads. Still hoping that the squeling will get better after the next Trackday this weekend.

Does anyone know if Pagid RS29's are made to order as well. I ordered a set back on 2/11 and the vendor said Stoptech had to make them and they have not shipped yet. Stoptech makes RS29's? Doesn't make sense to me. I might cancel that order and try Endless instead.

Took me months to get my RS29s for my AP set up. We're a special order part number for the rears. Awesome pad though, you can totally leave them in all track season.

I do. No issues at all. But only in the summer.

I have the RS19 and they are incredible on track, even at Summit Main which is very hard on the brakes in the summer. Also hard wearing (5-6 events on them already with plenty left), and easy on the rotors.

But - I would not drive them on the street more than I have to, they squeal like an old school bus. People stop and stare.

I'm interested in hearing more about these endless pads. I'm happy with my PF01s on the street and track. Only major complaint is noise. I think the PF01s tend to get worn pretty quickly during street driving as well.

My PF01s used to send people running...literally...in South Korea. Especially when I pulled up next to a bus stop.

There are lots of good pads out there nowadays but most of companies only have very few good pads thru out their product lines.
The reason why I like Endless the most because they have lots of compounds that we can play with. I can choose whatever stopping power I like, for example, high initial bite, progress bite, noise-free, low speed progress, high speed progress, low speed high initial, high speed agressive bite, etc.
