Pagid Orange Pads

Recommended Posts


Just changed to Pagid Oranges for track day next weekend. A question I have is regarding the spring that holds the pads in place, and how to position it since the caliper inside dimension is 71mm, and the spring is only 54mm. If the spring moves just a bit, it will rest on the pad and not on the steel part of the pad.


In this close up, you can see what I am referring too. Any problems with using stock springs on Pagids?


Not sure if anyone had had this issue. Drilling of the holes into the pads for the wear sensors was pretty easy. Thank you

I have never had any problems with the stock spring clamp. I have not heard of anyone else having a problem. I think if you were to look at a set of new stock pads the situation would be the same. In any case after an hour of track time the pads would be worn sufficiently that it would not be a problem any more.

Any reason why you drilled in the sensor holes for track pads?  I would have just zip tied them out of the way for track pads.

Yeah, I just leave the sensors in the stock pads when I remove them. It's easier to unplug the sensors from the connector on the strut than to remove them from the pads. I have a set of "stub" sensors which I plug in to keep the dash light off.

Drilled the holes to collect some Asbestos, running short on my supply of carcinogens.

Seriously, didn't even think about it, just read some other threads that people drilled them, and followed like a blind sheep. In retrospect, wasted time as I am only using them for the track.

But I showed my wife how clever I was by drilling the holes, so don't you guys go and spoil that for me now....
