As title, im looking to treat the Nismo to some new pads all round. Looking for something with less dust than the standard pads if possible and will be fitting in the standard Nismo callipers along with the standard discs.

 

Any suggestions ?

I went with Hawk pads through Abbey, way more bite still some dust but good by modern standards. Less fade on standard discs. Better than oem 

 

You got a link to them bud, im a bit far from Abbey to just turn up and ask for them :)

Stock pads aren't cutting it for spirited driving. Changing the brake fluid as well?

Well they are 7k into their life, the dust is quite heavy from them so time to go.

May as well pop better than OEM in, for the difference in price its a no brainer. Fluid will be done in line with servicing, unless I decide to do the discs before then.

Will be interested to hear your thoughts on these. Next time the pads on my 350 need changing I'm going to look for something with more bite and less dust than the standard Brembos.

I will let you know how they feel. Just debating if to get them done now. Or wait till I bang the 4 new MPSS on ? Thinking new anchors with the new boots.

Technically the MPSS was replaced with the MPS4S although it is made in some sizes still, the MPS4 is close to MPSS and IMO the MPS4S is better than the MPSS.

How did you get on with the Hawk pads?

Spot on bud, about to order another set for the fronts. Not sure they are ready for changing yet, but they have took some hammer so may as well refresh them and get them bedded in ready for Spring :)

Great stuff, thanks. I'm not a mad driver in the Z but there are "moments" when I do wonder if things could be a little better than OEM.

 

Plus, thinking ahead to next year, I will be giving it a good workout at a couple of tracks next year - that's the main reason for asking. Scott at Abbey recently told me that they've been using/fitting the Hawk DBA pads for many years now, so that's a good recommendation in itself I suppose.

Yeah they are certainly worth the money, work much better with a bit of heat in them and don't seem to fade with some fast road action. 

As the Z is a weekend toy now, when she goes out for a drive, we drive :lol:
