Unlikely unless you have a very bizarre Exige..meat said:Mintex 1166's on my Exige (Motorsport Brake Package). My rear rotors are the Fed Elise front rotors, I believe.
As tony wrote, the fronts are very simple as they use a fixed calipher. So you just tap out the retaining pins and pull the pads from the top.DCNSX said:Arno- how long is does it take to change pads on the Elise? I believe I will change pads for track events and look forward to seeing more posts on which pads are the best for track use.
Should be no different. I use a Motive powerbleeder and that work fine for me.Also, does the Fed Elise still have the easily-accessible brake bleeder valves? I plan on getting "speed-bleeders" right away.
$350 per set???????Craigy said:Top tip from euro elise drivers: try Pagid pads. They squeel a little but having been in a number of elises equipped with them, I am very impressed. They are very expensive though (approx £200 per set - I guess that's around $350)
If I recall correctly there are two types and the ones I've been most impressed with were Pagid RS-14's.
If you drive like a granny: 50-100K miles.CrashTestDummy said:I would hope with a 1900 lb car you will not have to replace the brake pads too often. Does anyone know how long they generally last?
Not that expensive actually for all 4 wheels. And we're pretty much talking race-pads here, not just road pads.Ara said:$350 per set???????
Yup.. That doesn't surprise me.. And this is probably just the 'regular' pads. Lotus also sell 'motorsport' pads, but these are actually PAGID's.Robert Puertas said:Hey Arno, dealer retail for a full set of pads for the Fed Elise is $400.
Ah.. I talked to a PFC dealer and they could already deliver me pads with the right backing-plate shapes. No problem there.We'll be able to do the Performance Friction Pads for a bit less, and some good high performance street pads for half that.
