BTW - the first 5 finishing cars of the 24H at Nuerburgring used Endless
As far as I know, all without changing pads!

Some have to do, some not. Endless teams normally not, except they do have an extremely heavy car.

I have run 3 24 hour races without changing pads!It all depends on the track and actual brakes used on the racecar.There are too many factors to make a statement like that!

So you are too slow, maybe the last 5 can also go 3 races on 1 set of pads.
I used up a set of RS29 pads in 5 stints of 45min each.

^^ Endless pads last much longer than any Pagid's if that counts.
Well, it depends on the weight as well.

We won our class by 27 laps and finished in the top 8 overall in a E30 325is at Mosport which is quite an easy track on brakes.

I have also gone through pads in a full fuel stint.It all depends where you are running!

Can you run these on the street?
Or are they a trac pad?

The top BMW finishers this year actually run Project Mu pads, I spoke with the head of Project Mu USA recently and we just got setup with a slightly compound from the BMW Motorsport cars since my car is used for Time Attack.

We'll be out testing soon! Can't wait!!

Awesome bro! Project Mu makes some pretty good looking brakes as well... can't wait to hear your review on them

BMW Motorsport in Europe uses Endless.

Team RLL is the only factory program that uses P-Mu.

I used to run Project Mu on my old cars. Great pads, they have everything from DD pads to straight race compounds.

I called up Mackin (US Distributor) and they said they can custom make any pad compound that Project Mu carries for M3 fitment. Normally they don't carry them in Euro fitments.

Endless are good too but they don't have many good street/track hybrid pads. Mostly all street or all track pads. So you either have overheating pads on track or crazy squeal on the street.

Look up Endless MX72.

Completely wrong info here. I DD and track all my Endless pads, from street/ race compound and full race compound, such as MX72, ME20, N35s-N45s, etc.
never overheating their street pads, no squeal on race compound either.
No offense, I guess you have never used Endless.

I ran Endless before. CC-RG pads and and also CC-A pads. They are considered street/track hybrid pads. The CC-A was okay but burned them up in one track day. The CC-RG lasted a couple of track days and lots of initial torque but they sounded like a freight train on the street every time you stop at a stop light. Also did a good number on eating my rotors.

The MX72, I have not run. They have a smaller temp range than the Project Mu HC+ and can not handle as much heat. MX72 is only 50-700 Celcius whereas the HC+ does 0-800 Celcius. So better at low temps and can take more heat on the track. Also the HC+ is dead silent in street driving with proper break in.

I've been tracking for over 10 years so I've gone through my share of brake pads. So far Project Mu makes the best street/track hybrid pads I've seen. I'd be happy to try something else but nothing comes close to the temp ranges and daily driving ability of the Project Mu pads.
