I use these pads Lee . You can get them from Brakes Plus and the closest one to me is on Kingston rd Underwood. They are made in QLD on the Gold Coast and so so a local product. But they will do any compond you like . But the 288 compound has done me well round Lakeside and is a compromise for the road. But they do wear under heavy use and will blacken your wheels on a sprint meeting

As far as your times go . I have only seen 2  Z32 four seaters (twin turbo at that ) do better than 65.00 at lakeside.Hawling a bus round there in 65 takes talent. There will be no quarter given to you in November.

Good times boys, to be honest I would not be keen on doing any wet laps at Lakeside on semi slicks.

As for pads for the Toyota calipers, they are common with a number of cars so there will be a reasonable choice. At this stage any decent high performance pad should do you, racing pads only if racing is about all you do.



After I took a ton of air out of the semis they gripped up amazingly well in the wet. I was running around 26/27psi hot and that seemed to be the sweet spot.

Fit the Lucas TRW pads appropriate for those calipers.
Some of the qfm's have been known to crumble, f you get your compound selection wrong.
And, get the discs skimmed, when fitting new pads, as cross contamination will occur due to differeing pad materials imbedded into disc rotor.
Good times, how has the lowering of your pressures worked hey?

I managed a 1:07 flat on street (federal 595 super steel's) tyres and running 6psi boost ( dropped from 14 after the skyline just kept trying to kill me ) in my auto r34 skyline.
Id received a warning for " excess drifting " and had just about every person at the track come over to say they were in awe that i managed to get the car back a multitude of times.
From this experiance i take away dont use street tyres in the wet at lakeside... You will die.
..
Was good to meet you Lee! And yes as Jake said GET A TACHO!
