Were they the Track days? I've heard like the z23s or whatever are bad, but have heard these are great. There's a thread on the F80 forum about these holding up at COTA. I also have 3 track buddies running these on a heavy ass scat pack and a few Camaros.

I think they were the evo z23s or something, they were really bad, made me never buy their brand again lol

My stoptech sport pads were the perfect balance between street and track, little dust too.

Turns out the PowerStop Track Day pads squeel and squeak like a freight train. I have greased them twice with 2 different products - no luck. I think I am going to track them this Saturday and then switch them out unless someone can give me a solution to the squeaking.

ere is how both of my front tires look after 3 track days; this is my outer edge. The track is very technical. My rears look pretty good.

All tires are 5/32"



Current Alignment Specs:

Looks like my passenger tension arm is leaking fluid.; car is wobbly as well. My other one went out at ~50K miles and now this one ~63K. I am going to replace it along with the lower control arms on both sides, just to be safe. I am hoping I can do it without a lift but we will see.

Yeah power stop aren't really good at all.

You should invest in stoptech pads. I ran stoptech sport pads and they were absolutely great for my power level, the track I went to had 3 hairpins and one straight and they didn't not fade at all.

Yes I do not think I am done yet. If i keep this car, which i plan to, I am going to upgrade the turbo. Its good to know that more kits are coming out soon. Also, I was able to replace all of the front control arms, however, the car is still shaking but only at 80+. It has to be my tires now, the tread is very low and the side walls are gone.. I will be getting new wheels and tires next year.

I may just pick up a members used f80/2 pads on here because those seem to be pretty adequate. I will look into stoptech as well though. Do you have the specific model?

Did you get the car aligned after? Usually when my car has shook at specific speeds it was lower control arms or alignment. Tires would be more noticeable at many speeds from what I've experienced.

I use these front and back. By far the best pads for what I do (occaisonal tracking with street as well) they will never squeal (unless they're low on pad of course) and the dust isn't bad at all. I have not felt any fade on the track.

Well, with winter approaching, I am going to be storing this car and driving my e90 328. I really only do this to save money on insurance lol. With that being said, I will be needing new tires for this car. I need the best street-able tires I can get. I am leaning on getting some 4S' in the spring. What are you guy's thoughts? I was going to get a set of re 71's as well but i feel like when i drive a few hours to the track, they will wear down more than i would like.
