    MA60 front brake pads?

    MK2 supra front pads:

    What's your favorite brand? I need new pads for the beast, and currently have glazed mystery pads in the car :roll

    Would like to try Hawk HP-Plus or Hawk Black but it doesn't look like they make these pads for this application :crybaby:

    Brian ive been looking into it as well, there really isnt much of a selection. But iirc porterfeild makes some, im still trying to find pads for the mk1 rear end i have. Worst case scenerio ill take my pad back plates to .... ungh . kvr and have them one off a set. Ill also be in touch to get those rca's now that my subaru sold.

    Brian: 8/81-85 AP 245 99.95 AP 240 , R4-S Carbon Kevlar double check the part numbers but im sure thats it. I had these pads on my wrx ... droooool, they are expensive and dusty but fawk they stop. I did manage to glaze and overheat them on the WRX, but i was really hard on them and wasnt respecting my brakes.


    R4-S High Performance Street and Autocross
    For high performance and heavy-duty street conditions. Perfect for prolonged everyday street use while also being capable of tolerating the most severe street use without any fade. Rotor friendly of course. The R4-S friction level will give you an impressive increase in stopping ability with very minimum pedal effort. R4-S compound has the absolute lowest noise and dust levels, far below OEM equipment or any other high performance brake material. Good for autocrossing, some drivers' schools, and rallies. The R4-S compound is available for virtually any vehicle sold in the US. We also offer the R4-S in pad sizes for competition type calipers that are used under street driven conditions.

    i have KVR CF pads. more dusty than i would have prefered, but no noise, quick warm up (which only mattered in -20 for my car) and much much less fade than stock pads.

    What else is available? I'm not really interested in trying PBR/metalmasters on this car, as I suspect that may be what the car's already running on.

    You'll never see any raybestos products on my car either

    1) Porterfield/R4S ($125)
    2) KVR/Carbon
    3) PBR/metalmaster ($68)
    4) PBR/Deluxe ($56)
    5) Altrom/Ultra8 ($34)
    6) Toyota/genuine ($75??)
    7)
    8)
    9)

    endless? project mu?

    What are you running for rear brakes/pads Brian? I find with just ****ty Napa pads on the front with my supra brakes it can lock up at like 100kph.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    10" rear rotors, stock calipers.... mystery pads in the rear too (car came with 90% rear brakes...)

    I've just noticed that the brakes don't bite like they used to when I first put the car together, and so I want to try more aggressive pads for next season. I'll prolly put in matching rear pads, whenever I figure out what goes in the front.

    Autocross dudes at GRM seem to love them.

    you should give first gen supra rears a try. they bolt right on and would probably match the front brakes fairly well. would be the cheapest and work well.

    negative, i'm using modified rear ae86 brakes.

    I'll call the shop about the porterfields... do you not have a local shop that carries them? Mine won't be in until next week.

    Closest shop is in quebec and I wont do business with them. I tried pdm, but they said they couldnt get them. Have u got my rcas back from fedex yet b? You will be beyond happy with the pf's they are phenomenal pads. I'm just waiting on my rebuild kits before i put my supras together. I'm prolly going with a jobber/napa type, the oems are 60bux a side. the supra forums have had good luck with them from what i can tell.

    If you can get these stilll.... 4) PBR/Deluxe ($56)

    go for them! Awesome awesome pads. I have them in my mk2. Very grippy, but not like an all out race pad. Even grippy cold. Almost 0 dust. They only squeek once in the morning on the first stop then you never hear them. I've autoxed them and tracked them and they've done great, no complaints, best pads I've ever tried/had.

    The MKII Supra(and RA64/65 Celica) front brake pads are the same part # as base(single piston, drum brake rear, no abs) Previas. Find an aftermarket pad for that and it will work on the Supra/Celica.
