Ref: 1972 240Z daily driver Brake setup: Front: 1979 Toyota 4x4 pickup Calipers on solid 240z stock rotors Rear: 1989 240SX calipers on 300zx non-turbo rotors Master cylinder: 1979 15/16 280ZX Booster: 1977 280Z Since installing this brake system in 2009 I have been experimenting with brake pads: Porterfield R4S: Poor cold bite in traffic. Removed after about six months to try Hawk Blues. Hawk Blues: Poor bite at all temperatures. Removed after about one month to try Axxis ULT Axxis/PBR ULT Ceramic: Good cold bite on first stop and in traffic. Ok in traffic and mountain driving. Carbotech AX6: Excellent cold bite and bite gets better with each stop. After about four stops these pads grab hard. Carbotech AX6 pads: Very little pressure on the brake pedal is required with this brake setup. I have smoked the fronts and the car hauls down fast without a hint of brake fade after several hard stops. At this point I am leaving the Carbotech pads on.
