Recommend brake disc

Discussion in 'Suspension, Brakes, Wheels & Tyres section' started by JBLACK, Feb 13, 2018.

  1. Hi All,

    I Currently have a Megane rs (Cup Pack) 2015 with a few mods. I would like to upgrade the brake disc to something more better than whats on there. I don't want it to sting my pocket of course but to make a big difference with the Ferodo DS2500 i currently have on there.

    Stock is fine, If anyone tells you otherwise they need to learn to brake properly.
     
  3. Change the pads.

  10. DS1.11 the pad for you, unless want THE LONG LIST version and much head scratching....
     
  11. about right...a very good compromise without breaking the bank.
    ds2500 not much better than standard IMO.
    Make sure you have fresh decent fluid to..makes a big difference to pedal stiffness.

    disk change will make zero difference.
    If anything a brembo blank will offer the same performance,while giving your pads a lot more life,as you dont get the`cheesegrater` effect,as with grooved disks.

  13. Where can I get the grooved Brembo discs for cheap?

    I've read on here that they can be found for £150ish.. But I can't find any?

    A link for front and back discs would be great!

    Just get Plains, cheaper @ £120 a pair and you don't get that irritating whirring noise that offers no benefits, unless you like the looks

    I second ds1.11 pads as well. Plain brembo disks are fine...used them on the r26 and was happy. I have reylands on the 250 which are fkin expensive in large size but seem to work well.

    Also George is brilliant

    Not at the moment, I supply a lot of Ferodo Racing pads and also Pagid RS range. There's not a lot that their range/compounds can't cover, for the various uses people want between them

    Which pagid RS pads are equivalent to ds1.11 and how much are they? Are they any Good?
     
  25. Pagid is my pick. I use RS29.

    Id recommend giving the new RST or RSL compounds a try, Im on RST3's and they are mega. DOnt last as long as the 29's but they are a more aggressive sprint/circuit compound as opposed to the endurance spec RS29
     
  27. Will do. Thanks!
     
  28. Where from?

    The RS29 (now called RSL29 but same compound), they face lifted/rebranded their range but still some of the compounds in the box of the original pads they did

    They're the endurance type pads that wear well and are kind on discs. As a general rule they're usually 50% more than the equivalent DS1.11/DSUNO
     
  30. Any thoughts on endless, e.g. N35S?
     
  31. The N35s pad offers monster stopping power considerably more than any pad mentioned here, really give tremendous confidence in car control coming into corners a silly speeds BUT.....
    You pay for this in disc wear, especially when pottering around as DD and braking ‘normally’ on cold disc they really eat into them factory disc. Only way to keep wear rate down is by generating good heat at high speeds all the time, they are a proper race pad and offer perfect retardation to a slick tyre
     
  32. Thanks! That's really good to know. I don't drive it on the road apart from getting to the 'ring! And the new GIRO discs will take some wear!
     
  33. I am using endless pads at the moment, they are great and i drive to and from track days, whether in this country and abroad, they are very good on the road with great bite from cold, only complaint is the price
