Just swapped on the carbotech pads for Saturday and bedded them in. Whoa they be dusty! But much better bite than the DS2500s I normally run. I found myself not needing nearly as much pressure to get the car to dive down to a stop...

Saturday should be interesting considering I have upped the power, brakes, and tires from last time... Time to start getting a feel for the extra performance

+1 on the Video

Wonder how your Pads will be working with the ABS.

I feel like my Pads (CL RC8) bite too much making it difficult to hit that initial brake pressure just right to not get into the ABS engagement range.

Yep there should be push pins in there as standard. Removal is indeed a bitch and i just pulled the center grill out or the small grills next to it. Once te top push pins of the grills are out you can in fact pull em out by hand. Though it's easy to scratch/break stuff if you manhandle it. Most people probably leave em out for that reason hence most people also have saggy bumpers (pun intended).

Swapped them on today to scrub them a little before hyperfest next weekend. Gives me a chance to confirm fitment and such this week too.

Thanks!

The Outback was pretty good! Much more roomy than I thought and rode/drove well. Right now it's probably my top choice for getting the wife a new daily

Will loading details and videos from Saturday shortly
