Brake pads


Recommended Posts

Mine's a 2002 Elise, Rover K engine. I'm looking for general comments, experience of different pad material.

I can't identify the one's fitted, but I can say they're too hard. I'm a notorious light breaker, inclined to glaze the disks, so I'm not looking at hard material especially with no servo.

Standard calipers by the way.

Surprisingly I have been able to identify the front brake pads on my 2002 Elise, Remsa, Unfortunately I've never herd of them so I have no idea if they are rated soft medium or hard.

Does anyone know from the identifiers what rating these pads would be?

Looks like I'm answering all my own questions. I called in today at our brake and hydraulic specialist here in Coffs Harbour.

They had some information on Remsa, even been known to use them, but not overly impressed.

Consensus says if I think they are too hard they probably are. I'd prefer to be operating with more tangible information but in the mean time,

I'm going with Greenstuff, a known entente from my Esprit, possibly a little soft, but they worked well on the Esprit, so we'll see how we go.

I'll let you know, my only concern is that they may be a bit hard as the Elise is so much lighter than the Elise, and no servo.
