running without anti-squeal dampeners ?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about switching to using dedicated track pads for DE's and street pads for daily driving. I haven't changed the pads yet so my question may have an obvious answer once I get to it but thought I would ask ahead of time anyway.

When I go to remove the street pads (currently around 50%), will it be possible to pull them out while leaving the dampeners stuck to the back of the pads ? That is, will there be enough clearance to get the dampeners out of the pistons and out of the caliper without detaching them from the pads ? That is, without removing the caliper in which case I assume there would be plenty of room.

Is there any issue (other than noise) with using track pads without any dampeners ?

The car is a 2006 Boxster-S and am planning to put Pagid Yellows on for the track. The street pads I have right now are Porsche branded made by Textar.

Push a flat screwdriver between the damper adhesive base plate and the brake pad to come loose of the pad, pull the base plate rearwards in the cylinders. No other issues than noise will appear without dampers.
