View Full Version : Brake pads

What is is the brake pad thickness when you change your pads. I am trying to decide whether I need new pads. I am using Hawke Blues in the front. Mine now are 3/8'. Brand new they are a 1/2'. How many weekends do you normally get out new pads. I race at Sebring, Moroso and Daytona in an IT7.

I run mine past 1/8 inch, but take them to the trash shortly there after, a well made brake should hold together all the way to the metal, but I've seen some that start to crumble as they get down to the 1/8 inch mark . Rick
