Question Brake Pad Options for Cobra/Mach/Bullitt Brakes

It won't be long before its time to change my front pads on my Bullitt. As much as I would love a new pimpy brake setup, I don't have the money and it wouldn't be that huge of a benefit to me. I drive the car to and from work everyday and I autocross when I have an opportunity (probably averages out to once a month).

Right now I believe that I have OEM replacement pads up front and I was thinking of going with something a little more performance oriented up front. What options are out there? From what I have seen the aggressive street pads are HPS, HP Ceramic, PFC-Z, and Brembo Pads. I'm not sure if the HP+ push the limit of a streetable pad or not.

Does anyone have any experience with the Brembo pads? Tirerack lists them as comparable to the HPS pads, which sounds like an aggressive street pad with good dusting and low noise. They also have a pretty nice price point. I'm not sure how the HP+ pads behave, but it sounds like they give max braking with lots of dust and the possibility to squeal like a city bus.

I don't think I could handle the HP+'s for daily driver duties. The HPS's would offer a more reasonable decision for what you've stated the intended uses would be(or some other brand equivalent to that level performance/dusting/wear abilities).

I think the "super hardcore's" will tell you to have TWO sets of pads(like wheels/tires). Thats probably going to be my route, although more for just a front pad change considering how easy a pad swap is on the Cobra/Bullit setup. I run HP+'s, but will downgrade to HPS's and have a set of HP+'s(or XP10's)for abusing. For the rears, i'll use an HPS pad(or XP8)for full time use.

However, I am getting pretty lazy and can't wait until "one lug/nut" wheels and on board air jacks become wholesale priced.

EDIT: You caused me to go "brake browsing". I found these rotors at a decent price...appx. same as store bought OE variety.

EDIT AGAIN: Stupid me, that price is for REAR. Thought it said FRONT.

Since your use is primarily daily driving, here's something to consider at what appears to be a good price...

Right now I won't be swapping pads and rotors. That may change in the future, but right now that is a solution to a problem that I don't have. I certainly don't need a hard core pad for autox use and I don't do lapping days/OT events right now.

Those rotors look like a good deal but I wonder what their quality is up to. Also, that pattern makes me a little self conscious.

I considered the PFC-Z's, which are an aggressive street compound and are available locally from AZ, O'Reilly's, etc.

I've had those ATE rotors on the back of my car for 3 years and they have been excellent. They don't rust up like the others do from sitting and they've held up great. They're made by Continental-Teves who makes some of Ford's OE brake system so they're a relatively reputable company too. The rears aren't nearly as important as the front so I figured I'd give them a try and I haven't been disappointed at all.

From an asthetics point of view, the no rusting interests me. Must be the coating that they use.

I use the Brembo/Galfer pads for street use on my car. They came with the 4 Piston Brembos I bought. They work well, some noise, but dust like crazy. When the car still had PBR calipers, I used the Performance Friction pads from Autozone

If you Daily the car, the HP+ are definetly a bad idea... I drove em on my trip to MustangWeek, and I have been asked several times what was wrong with my brakes - that is, till they ride with me, lol.

I think you are on the right track... I recommend checking with artsperformance for the pads - he's the cheapest I've found.

I'll probably wind up swapping to Hps's up front to ride on after these wear out, and swap the + pads in and out for autox/track use.


Down to one '86 GT riding some jackstands, but there's somethin in the works!!

At this stage in the game I'm kind of a one pad guy. Our autox courses are NOT so intense that I need every ounce of stopping power in the world. An aggressive street pad would work for my current needs. Of course that could change if I ever get my car out on the ocal road course, but until then....

Sounds to me like the HPS, Porterfield R4S, Mintex 1155 or Carbotech Bobcat should work just fine for you. I'm sure there are other options out there as well. As you've said, with your usage there's no need to step up to the next level of performance - the tradeoffs (noise, dust, rotor wear) just aren't worth the minor improvement in auto-x performance once a month IMO.

Sounds good. I will look into some of those other options that have been mentioned in this thread.

In my previous post I meant to say that our local courses are NOT that intense and don't require ultimate stopping power or a pad that rides the edge between streetable and track only.

FWIW, IME the Porterfields were a little bit noisy. I'd put them somewhere between the level of the HPS and the HP+.

I have heard TONS of good things about these pads, but never tried them myself. I'll be buying them for my Cobra setup here pretty soon, front and rear. Supposed to be priced well AND come with a warranty!

I daily drive and autocross on HPS's and they've been great for the past year or so that I've had them. They make a less dust than the Performance Frictions that I previously had on the car, they bite good and hard when cold, and they have yet to let out a peep of noise when stopping on the street.

Just get some HPS and call it a day.

The Carbotech AX6 (formerly called Bobcat) is a fantastic pad but will dust and squeak a little more than the HPS.

PF Z's are terrible when cold. When I had them on my daily driver I would have to ride the brakes for a couple of blocks before I would get into traffic. They are the exact opposite for what you want in an A-X.

the hp+ stop really well but at normal driving they squeal. if you can put up with a little bit of noise go with them. if you don't want noise go with the hps.

Looks like we've covered some good brake pads and hopefully the OP has enough info to make an educated purchase.

On another brake pad/system note....why is it that the rear Cobra brakes I put on the BACK of my car "moan" in the morning when I back it out of the garage? It's a horrible moan/groan sound that goes away with a slight pull up on the E-brake. The brake pads are worn down stock/OE GT pads and I am using the Cobra anti-moan braces and fully ground down the caliper bracket/no rotor contact.

It's rather annoying at 3:30am when i'm leaving. But then it goes away after i'm out of the driveway.

A good pad for autox will work fine for the street.

PFC Z's are not very good. I run HPS's on my cars, not HP Plus as they are too on/off--good power, but very grabby (and pretty damned dirty too). If Ferodo made the DS2500 for any of my cars, I'd run those. They do make them for the front your car Chris. They rock because they offer HP Plus power, but with HPS feel and release characteristics. They don't make them for the rear, but we'd use HPS's there.

So, it's either HPS all around, or DS2500 front/HPS rear if you want a bit more power and a pad that can really take a pounding (like a track day).

I have both (and a lot of others too... Porterfield, PFC, Raybestos just to name a few).

Must be a Ford thing. EVERY 05+ F150 that I have heard does this when going from P to D or R with a foot on the brake. Maybe it is the compound that they use for the OE pads?

Thanks guys. I will look into the HPS pads. Seems to be highly recommended. I will also check into those other pads you mentioned Sam. Thanks for the advice guys.

Going out to play this weekend at Beaver Run (Shelby Convention) with the Ferodo/HPS setup. First time at this track and first OT event with the "new" car. I'll let you know how they performed. I'm going to need something to level the playing field as 3 friends will have S197 GT500's... all with 500+ rwhp.

Sam, thanks for getting all the brake parts from different sources to arrive in 2 days. Maybe I'll call you for some tips on getting around this track.

I'm a big fan of the DS2500s, too, Sam. I use them on my Subaru and on my CTS-V for street/auto-x duty. I used to be a Mintex 1155 guy, but when those became harder for me to obtain I shifted to the Ferodos and have been using those for a few years now.

huesmann, I'm pretty sure the answer is YES. I think that the rear calipers on my CTS-V use the same pad as the '00 Cobra R front calipers, and I have DS2500s all around on the V.

Sounds like I will look into the DS2500 up front and HPS out back. Sam, can you give me a shipped price on these?

DS2500/HPS O/T test

Had a blast at the SAAC BeaveRun O/T event today. After driving 400 miles out to the event, the car ran very well and the pads performed even better. Four 20 minute sessions today with no brake fade or pedal loss. While they do sometimes make a slight squeel during very slow stops I can't say how much better they are compared to the HPS, but I can't say enough about their performance today. Four more sessions tomorrow!

Thanks again Sam,

I agree that the PFC Zs are not that good and especially bad when cold. The HPS+ will squeal. The R4S don't have a high enough cf for my pedal feel tastes. I use the HPS for all street stuff. On any normal AutoX course, they will have plenty of brake torque assuming that the brakes on the car are large enough.

The rear brakes on your car make noise in the morning because the pads absorb moisture during the night. The moisture in the pad causes the pad to have a much larger difference between the static and dynamic friction coefficients. The higher the ratio of static to dynamic friction, the more stick and slip behavior the brakes have. The more they stick and slip, at low velocities, the more likely it is for the brakes to start mechanically resonating, which causes the acoustic noise (squeal/moan/groan). Front brakes rarely have this problem because the caliper and rotor mounting is so much stiffer than in the back of an 8.8. You can use an anerobic adhesive to glue the brake pad to the caliper piston. This usually fixes the problem.

I installed the Satisfied Grand Sport 6 on my cobra and been very happy. I wanted low squeel, low dusting and very good braking. For the money it was an excellent deal.

Good grief! Thanks for the explanation, Jack. I honestly would have NEVER thought that.

Thumbs up

i recently tried the hawk hp plus's and they are SICK as far as stopping power goes. the noise is not so bad, in fact to some degree i liked it. HOWEVER what i don't like is the dust, which there's LOTS of.

i also tried the wilwood 15E-8298E PolyMatrix pads (for sale if someone wants to try them at a killer price) and originally i was told that they are close to the hawk hps, but that's not the case. these things are very close to the plus's, although not as noisy, but still dusty.

for the heck of it i bought some hps as it sounds like those are the best compromise for the street, especially if you don't want to clean your wheels everyday i should have them by next week so i will keep you guys posted.

huesmann, I'm pretty sure the answer is YES. I think that the rear calipers on my CTS-V use the same pad as the '00 Cobra R front calipers, and I have DS2500s all around on the V.
Pat, do you have a source for the DS2500s to fit the Brembos?
