Cryo rotors are snake oil, IMO. It's possible they might last a bit longer purely for street use but they have repeatedly shown no benefit in terms of added life for track use. Either way cryogenic...

We've been told we can have them made but are still working out the details for a production run. Likely need to ship a set of OE rear pads back to Italy to be scanned so we can ensure the fitment is...

It's a bit difficult to exactly quantify but I'd say Type NS emits ~20% more than 1521 does all else equal. 20% sounds large but 20% of a very small amount isn't exactly a huge jump in reality.

I haven't confirmed but the GT500 rotors also likely have a different offset than the IS-F rotors and almost certainly have a different (smaller) hat diameter since they use a D1001 pad shape which...

It's a bit higher friction but most certainly not lower dust than Type NS.

Type PS are the replacement for the B-force and sit in the performance category above the Type NS and Carbotech 1521. A bit more friction but a lot more dust than either Type NS or 1521. The reason...

Responded!

Just a heads up for everyone else as well we are down to our last few sets of HC+800 and will be unable to order more. If you want them this is the last chance.

RS14 are a great compound but these pads are not RS14. They are from Pagid's OEM side and not the motorsport side (very much segregated).





Correct. The front pad shape is shared with a few...

Wholeheartedly agree going with a 991.1 Turbo S is the better move since they are very similar but the .1 are substantially less. Or if you prefer 991.2 I'd wait a few more months until 992 turbo...
