Can anyone recommend a good brand of brakes that are fade resistant. I don't know what brand of brakes my RMS has right now as they don't need replacing, just checked lining front & rear.
On my old RMS I used wagner thermo quiet which are good but do fade with repeated use. I would like to get both pads and shoes that don't fade with repeated use especially when driving in hilly /mountainous terrain.
I had good enough experience with AC Delco ceramic on another FWB I owned that I got exactly the same for my new one. Considering their work, and that you want added performance, you may want to consider treating the car to new calipers and hoses with those pads and shoes, maybe even rotors.....
I just duckducked 'AC Delco 614' and forgot I even posted this:
I second the AC Delco ceramic pads. Using them front and rear on my car.
I also used Valvoline Synthetic brake fluid in mine. The Synthetic fluid has a much higher boiling point than standard brake fluid but has a tendency to capture water easier so you need to change it more often.
I used this setup with drilled and slotted rotors to do some "road" racing and never felt brake fade. (On a track, not on real roads)
I don't recall the brand of the rotors I used but certainly used the AC Delco ceramic pads. My last purchase of those were 10 years ago so hopefully they are same quality.
I love my ceramic ACD pads. I also got ACD rotors, and 20k miles later, they are in FANTASTIC shape.
94 RMSB 170K Sat 5 years, ran for 1 of those then remained untouched for 4. Sat because it was slapped by a deer and the owners didnt want to fix it for whatever reason.
Mods, all the free good ones.
Future? Probably pull engine, reseal it, and run it a lot more. Looking to get 250k out of it. PRAYING for 300k.
