Hello! i'm eyeing my pads on my stock 16 Nismo and also, HATING the constant brake dust..............

 

I know you dont get something for nothing but........are there replacement brake pads that stop well without all the dust with stock rotors?

 

Thanks in advance........

No.  There are low dust pads sold by vendors on here, especially the ceramics, but they do not stop as well as the stock pads.  they aren't BAD, per se, but they are competing with a pretty damn good pad.

Thanks. Thought so.

 

Shawn, at how many mm would you recommend replacement.

Carbotech or G-LOC have a very good stopping power to dust ratio. 

The XP10s I ran have comparable dust to OEM pads and vastly better temp handling and feel on track.

Most pads have a built in "split" that tells you when (when the split is gone)  Otherwise, it depends.  If it's a total street car, you can replace at 1-2mm.  If it's tracked, that's just too low (coming from a guy that has run them down to the backing plates too often).

 

destroid is right, the pads he listed have good dust and stop considerations.  But, if you want hard STOP, hard STOP=dust.

1) can i use the XP10's with stock rotors?

2) do they stop better than stock pads?

3) what's the typical pricing vs stock

1) yes

2) yes, but you'll destroy the rotors in a track day or two

3) they're not that expensive

 

My recommendation would be not to do this, instead to get to something like the AP-Racing J-hooks or the Alcon rotors.  If you try to use the stock rotors you'll be doing that upgrade anyway 1 track day later.

Agree with the above.  The stock rotors on the GT-R (especially the CBA) are absolute shit when combined with a full track pad on the track.  The DBA's were better.

 

Got pics to prove it, of course.

Never had a chance to test the DBA rotors. AP J-hooks held up amazingly well and went on the car after breakin at 1000 miles. 
 

Buy once, cry once - just call up Essex and get some.
