Default Question for the Bobcat Groupbuy guys: Do you find these pads to brake better than stock?

I put mine on and have noticed that my stock pads were actually better. I am finding myself having to apply more brake peddle pressure to get the same stopping power. They are defeinitely less dust than the stockpads. Perhaps I need to rebed them?

Default I find mine bite more, but do have that delay in getting warmed up. I've still not

completely bedded them properly either.

Default I found that they didn't catch the whole face of the rotor...

when I had them installed of my S4 along with the DBA rotors. I'm not sure what the problem is but the car's back in today to have it looked at.

Default Hmmm..I'm finding that too. I'm counting on a lenghty bedding to alleviate that. My rotors are

about 3 years old with 55ks on them.

Default Mine only hit about 50% starting at the outer edge of the rotor...

Towards the middle - not much contact, if any. What about you?

Looks like it misses 0.5 cm towards the centre...definitely less than what you saw.

You see the "rust band" that hasn't scraped off.
