Re: HRC brake pads question?

I just wanted to know if you could run HRC brake pads for everyday riding or is it a waste of money?

Thanks,

Rick

Re: HRC brake pads question?

That's a difficult question to answer without considering what is important to you.

I run 94 octane in my cruiser, and get blasted by several people, but it's worth it to me. I bead blast my rotors every other race weekend and always wire brush my pads after bedding them in, so the relative 'worth' of anything is really only up to you.

The HRC pads are great and work well under just about any conditions. Are they a better 'value' than say EBC double H kit pads? Maybe, because they certainly last longer and the intial bite is incredible. So even at 3 times the price, they may be a better choice for you.

Re: HRC brake pads question?

I have had good luck with the HRC, but you might also look into Ferrodo sintered pads. They work very well. Also when you change your pads, you should clean your rotors. Ferrodo sells a neat little rotor hone that you use with a cordless drill at low rpm. I bought mine at Laguna for $39.00.
