Considering we sold out a few batches of brake pads and have received awesome feedback on them, we hope many more users will share their experiences with the community. We know it's the secret to their success, which might be why they're so secretive.

Great brake pads. Great bite that didn’t have any fade despite temps being in the 90's. The pads had much more modulation than the XP10’s. Also, you can't beat the customer service at CSG, great guys!

Sorry if I missed it, but what is the proper bed-in procedure for the C1 pads in these 2 scenarios?

1) coming from another pad? XP10 in my case. Do I need to have the rotors resurfaced?

2) replacing C1 with new C1 in the future

Thx.

1. in an ideal world, new rotors are best; rotors are fairly inexpensive.

1 + 2: warm up the pads gradually by doing some 50% stops. Then, start doing 70-80% stops (NO ABS!) until you start smelling the pads. This is the resins burning off and the bedding process going. Sustain the heat for a few minutes by braking as needed to maintain the smell. Cool off the brakes evenly by rolling at a moderate speed without coming to a stop, and without using the brakes for 10-15 minutes. This is best done on a race track, or a safe, open road where you are not breaking any laws or endangering/risking anyone.

Thank you Mike for the response. Is there a difference between swapping in new rotors vs resurfacing existing ones? You get a metal surface free of pad material either way, don't you?

PP.... different story, but still relatively inexpensive.

Rotor mass. Less mass = less sink.

Do you know what the part numbers are for the front PP rotors? Mine are on their way out.

I found this listed in the SKU for the entire Brembo kit, but I can't tell if it's the right part or not since there's another listed at $433 right below it.

Those are right, but you don't HAVE to get Brembo replacements.

OEM discs for the base braking system are expensive too!

I believe the right OEM part numbers for BRZ Performance Package brake disks are 26300FE001 for the front and 26700CA000 for the rear.

Another happy buyer. Very consistent feel lap after lap, easy to threshold and trail brake with. I have flat melted down XP10's on my same setup. Came away from a track day and these still have the paint on the backing plates looking like new. The transfer layer seems to be holding up just fine even with daily driving and they are staying quiet.

Why would anyone go to the dealer for rotors? Pull up the PP package on TireRack and see what size the rotors are and order Centric blanks.
