Hi all

This May also apply to the other models in the range but try as I might I can't find the minimum brake pad levels for front and rear.

I'd rather not use the method of waiting till the sensors get cut though to tell me to replace !

I've also got a Vmax day coming up soon at the Top Gear test track, Dunsfold, so wanted to see how much life was left in the existing pads before I went.

Anyone help out here ?

I would not be afraid to wait for sensors to cut though. It is a good and simple system and you have backup from other sensors. Plus using steel discs it won't damage them that much if running metal to metal. In that case you will hear it right away.

I have PCCB on my PGTS. There It hurts if going metal to discs.

thanks for the advice


I ran the car at the Vmax event - no brake problems whatsoever - there was much more braking space than I was anticipating, so didn't have to haul the car to a standstill on a dime !

not that it could have been done, as my max speed was 175mph; that was from a standing start in 0.7 mile !


Off to a longer runway next weekend - 2 miles !!


I can't measure the difference in pad wear from before the first event to now as the wear is so small, so I think it's a non issue - I'll keep an eye on it though 


trying to crack the magic 200 ! :eek:
