    So far I haven't had any fade or issues at all. The carbotech pads I run have help up well on track, if a bit noisy and dusty for the road.

    All in all I'm really happy with the brakes.

    Mine are also standard rears, just running pbs pads to deal with the heat a bit better. Luckily I did as one rear caliper seized on a few months later and the disc was glowing put pads were fine!

    Mike were from projekt k, or k system pro. It's a polish company. Freaky parts also do a kit.

    Think I'm going to go for the K-System BBK.

    My standard brakes fade really easily, even sometimes when they're not that hot, I have had a few stained pants moments on tracks with them.

    It's not just the cheaper outlay at the start, it's the on-going consumables. The cost of replacing the discs for Stop-Tech and Yellowspeed are harsh. At least with the K-System, there are quite a few options for discus and pads, just making it a bit more of an affordable track toy, the you take into account, regular tyre replacement etc.

    For the money they're an excellent option in my opinion.

    For mainly track I'd recommend some decent pads. Carbotech have worked really well for me, though next time I'll try the RSL29 pads as heard nothing but good things about them. The pads are expensive but these carbotech have lasted ages compared to my previous pbs and ds2500.
