Brake pad brembo??

Ok so in about 2 weeks i will be going to a track day at homestead speed way and my stock brake pads are really worn out and not really up to a whole day of racing. Is it the same to change the brake pads on the brembos as it is on any other car?

Is it the rear brakes that are worn down or the front? My brembos are fine but I've had to replace my rear pads and rotors at around 27000 km

I have 5000 killing miles of hard driving. My rear seem fine but my front are worn out.

I also want to change the brake fluid to high temp, does anyone have any recommendations and how many bottles do i need.

I've got almost 20k miles on my brembos and they still have plenty left, how in the world did you manage to wear them out in 5k even driving driving extremely hard? If you don't mind me asking

I have my wheels off now because I'm painting my calipers. Seems as though, at least from the outside that its the same. Just a few bolts to take off and the calipers separate. I haven't had to change mine yet or open them up but I would assume they are the same.

How exactly did you manage to use your rears up before the fronts?

Ah, why didn't I think of that!

Here is a video for an STI Brembo change but I do believe the process is exactly the same

Have no idea. Can't figure that out I've driven my car hard every mile and somehow the rears were fused metal on metal and I have no idea what's left on the front they didn't fill that out or tell me

Could be because the brake ratio is 60 to the front and 40 to the back and stock brakes aren't that great for what it does so the brembos can last longer because they are made for my type of driving

When I had my 335 the rear pads lasted 10-15k fewer miles than the fronts. So it may not be that uncommon.

I'm amazed that I got 50K out of the front pads, and that is with two seasons of autocross.
