5am Brake Pad Swap

I admit it, swapped out OEM for Pagids for upcoming track day at 5am this morning. I wanted at least two 24-hour cycles before Saturday.

Yes, I'm a track junkie.

~45 minutes. Most of the time is devoted to jacking the car and pulling the wheels off and on. Pad swap is the easy part.

You are much faster than I...well over an hour due to OCD-checking. I am comfortable/can live with with OCD checking of brakes! I usually clean/wipe the components as I go too.
