R32 GTR non brembo brake upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hey - I would look at some old posts but since its 2019 time has moved on so I want to get an up to date opinion.

I am keeping the stock non-Brembo callipers as I use the stock 16" wheels but I need to replace my current pads.

A company in NZ has recommended some new DBA pads and slotted rotors as an upgrade of the stuff that is in there.  I know some old articles had issues with cracking but then I heard the new stuff doesnt crack.

Anyone used it lately and what do people recommend now?

 

Thanks guys.

I would not use DBA pads, however their rotors are good.

Avoid the T2 junk, get T3 aka DBA4000... also if you don't want rotors to crack don't gets slots.

Slots are a marketing gimmick, also DBA machines them in after production, if they were cast slots then they wouldn't crack as easily.

What's your budget like? Intima are decent pads at a fraction of the cost, Elig pads are a step up, followed by Project Mu (Australian Thailand made ones), followed by Project Mu (Japan, Japanese made ones).

HC800+ is NOT HC+ no matter how much the guys up at Racers Warehouse in QLD say they're the same, they're simply not.

RDA slotted & dimpled better value than DBA.

Intima RS is my preferred pad for street. Note that RS is their "street/track" pad. SS is their "street" pad. RS works very well as a street pad. Also, very good value.

I have no specific knowledge of the DBA pad that you mention.

0 to 600 degree pads, not too harsh on rotors and I can supply to SAU members too haha

Check out the Znoelli website

and if you are in Auckland call round. They have a range of rotors (didn't make replacement rings for my D2s at the time) but I have used their high performance pads with success. I don't know how their prices compare these days but worth looking in to...

Braided lines, DBA T3 rotors and Intima SR pads all combine to be a very capable performance / Street packed with excellent pedal feel. If you spend most time on the street then go the SS pas as the SR’ can have some sqeal occasionally.

Can confirm Intima SR pads are great. Overkill for a daily (I'll switch to SS soon) but no issues pulling up my gen5 Liberty.
