Disc brakes

Bookmark and Share

Just some useful info, for anyone thinking of running disc brakes.

If running brand new rotors, these will need to be bedded in. Our brakes had been bedded in nicely and were working superbly at CSE until one got bent in a prang. Changed it for Dalby and one side (original rotor) excellent braking, other side (new rotor) good, but just not spot on. Anyway using the first run behing the safety car, using the brakes a lot, soon got them bedded in nicely.

Better off to do this before an event, doesnt need to be done at high speed, but some long continuous runs will do the job. We are not using any special pad compounds i.e. sintered and our brakes work really well from cold.
