Hello guys

It is obvious that the standard set up on 996 C2 + C4 ( Zimmerman discs+Texstar pads ) could use an improvement.The Texstar pad feeling is plastic and noneffective and the rotors start to veil after some hard braking (the rear at least)

I know that an big kit upgrade might cure but it is kind of expensive those days

So i have tried over the time the brembo pads and yes that's an improvement but also i am curious about other pads as Pagid,Ebc(red or yellow stuff),Jurid etc

I m sure that some reputable members here have also step into this issue.

Guess it depends on what you are primarily using the car for. My car spends most of its time on the track and I've found Pagid Orange to be quite effective on an otherwise stock bakek setup. Keep the brake fluid fresh too, that can make a huge difference as it's hygroscopic, absorbing water over time. If memory serves me, Pagid blacks are similar to the Porsche Sport pads and are probably worth taking a look at. I would NOT opt for a big brake kit. Our stock brakes have huge amounts of stopping power, and it is unlikely you will run out of brakin capacity on the street (or frankly even the track). Good luck.

I think that the best kit to upgrade the brakes are:

PAGID RS 29 front and rear

Goodridge Braided Hoses

Castrol SRF Brake Fluid

997 GT3 Front Brake Ducts

997 GT3-2 Rear Forced Air Ducts

Hope I help.

Are you testing with or without ABS enabled...?

The better the braking the more, quicker, ABS will intervene.

The only valid comparison testing is with ABS turned off.

well...rs29..i think that's the "yellow" pagid right?as well as rs44 is the orange type

yellow or orange i will try them for sure

goodrige are allready there

on castrol..i don't know,i am a dedicated fan off motul fluids

so far the rbf600 factory line from them has no matching opponent.as well motul oil etc..

ABS turned off...sound good sometimes but somethimes not.

but thnak's for the hint i will try it just for fan

hope i can deactivate it via durametric ,if not via his fuse

but who carry pagid at reasonable prices?i see that paragon is a dealer for united states,maybe other members can advice

cheers
