    Great setup once warm, only problem I've had is pad deposit on disc making it a lil shaky under heavy breaking but soon worn off after a few laps

    Exactly the same here. How you finding it? Can't wait to put the setup through a proper test on a track day a week tomorrow. I'm waiting to see how long the pads last, got a feeling the pattern is going to eat them pretty quick!

    I've got a box of pads waiting to go on the rear with new discs in February. User reviews seem positive.

    Well the only thing I've changed recently is the discs, I'm just hoping they help with issues I had with the brakes just fading very suddenly. They just seem to drop off a cliff and I I turned my old discs blue.......

    The Ds2500 were an improvement over the oem pads in terms of longevity, the braided lines just give a touch more feel and adjustibility on the limits of braking.

    I was going to go for 2-part discs but I'm looking at sorting out the suspension setup this year funds allowing....

    DS2500 pads all round
    Standard discs all round
    ATE super blue fluid
    Standard hoses
    Yearly strip, clean & lube

    I've tried a few different setups and settled on this. Tried KTEC 2-piece discs and they just got destroyed on a track day, didnt seem to really give any benefit over standard but cost 5x as much! Also tried CL RC5 pads and had issues with deposits so wouldn't recommend them for road use.

    Very very happy with them! Highly recommend them to anyone. Think I'm gonna go for 1155 or 1166 pads next though for bit more extreme use on track. I'm having to change lines and fluid because the standard fluid boils too easily at the mo.
    Really think more people need to try them instead of the 'common' choices on here.
