Been looking around for awhile now for a set of rear brake pads for an ae86 caliper.. i read this thread and since you guys mention rapid stop i messaged him and he does have pads for the ae86. i need the rears to be bitey, as currently the FBK options isnt. so hopes this rapid stop pads are much better. Question though, how are the pads on the rotors? are they gonna wear the rotors down hard? i cant find much info on the pads, so i have no idea what sorta compound is in em.
Should be much better. FBK are terrible......lol

yeah the FBKs are terrible but they are one of the few that still make pads for the ae86 calipers. Vr2turbo have you used these rapid stop before? i am getting mixed reviews. some day its pretty decent. some say although rated at 550c they fade easily.. any input?

550c is pretty high. Are you using the brake pads for race purposes or street use? If street 550c should be plenty.

Alternatively you can have a look around at Ultrex pads. I've used both RS and Ultrex on a 4-pot caliper and both are pretty decent pads.

its gonna be for street use and probably in future maybe some hilly runs. the problem is ae86 pads are real hard to come by. Dixel has em but of course the cost is on the higher side too. hmmm i think both rs and ultrex are about the same price range. Izzo if u had to choose between RS and ultrex which would you rather? or are they just evenly matched?

Same diff.

It's like comparing Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman in JLA:DC Zack Snyders edition. I'd do them both except I'd probably get more bruising with WW since she's all strong and all.
