Mintex C-Tech Brake Pads

Published on January 27, 2011 by Volvospeed

The Mintex Red Box pads normally come with the shims precut and installed. But for some reason the more expensive C-Tech pads do not. Cutting the shims and installing them takes about 15 minutes. However, custom cutting the shims does not produce the same factory look. This may or may not be of concern depending on your rims, and how much of the calipers you can see.

Published on January 27, 2011 by Volvospeed

With a higher wet boiling point, this fluid will continue to function properly longer then conventional brake fluids. Ate recommends that you change your fluid every two to three years. When your next change interval arrives, Ate is an excellent choice.

If you want a better look for your brakes and have a spare day one weekend, this is a good upgrade. Allow yourself lots of time. Also make sure you have a torque wrench to refit the tires before you begin.

Slotted Drilled Brembo Rotors

Published on January 26, 2011 by Volvospeed

These rotors were manufactured with an emphasis on tight tolerances where appropriate, namely the rotor thickness, Other aspects were not as tightly controlled, i.e. errors in the concentricity of machined cross drilled ventilation holes and the cast chamfers were readily apparent to the naked eye. These imperfections however are not indicative of a defective product or design but rather indicate an intent to apply manufacturing costs only where they will benefit the performance of the rotor.
