993 RS Clone Brake Pads

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I would like to get your opinion on the use of Pagid Black RS14 pads for a combo street driven and part time DE car. My Carrera is a narrow body RS clone with Turbo front calipers and RS rear calipers. Car is driven 80% street. I've been advised that using the RS 14 pads on all four calipers works well but may not be the best option. My concerns are primarily related to street driving in terms of excessive brake pad noise and dust.

Much appreciate other opinions.

Lots of threads on pad choices over on 993 Forums on Rennlist.

In general, popular solution is favorite OEM pads / shims on street and dedicated "track" Pads for DE. Once done (a few times) swapping the pads in and out for a DE can be a 30-min job or less. Also gets you close to the car for pre DE service inspection of tires and brakes. Also, DE stress on Brake Fluid can be addressed by a short bleed cycles after swapping in the DE pads. If you continue down the DE slope, dedicated DE tires are also in your future. The combo of swapping tires and pads, and close up inspection can then become routine in prep for and after a DE. YMWV.

DEs are a great place to meet other P-car enthusiasts, many of which are more then happy to show you the ropes of such DE rituals. Check with the folks doing DE Teck Inspection for pointers to other DIY folks at the track. OR have you preferred Service guys do this for you too along with pre DE tech inspection.
