buy my BBk.... thats my advice! but you have to run atleast 17s....

the newer the pad the better for track days... they take the heat MUCH better than worn ones.

No one makes a BBK for the rear of our beloved Mini's. It's not like my 3-series. Plus, how much more of a deal do you guys want?

Aw damn, I missed this thread. I would have advised new pads + powerslots. The bedding-in period is actually longer if you slap on pads without at least having the rotors machined, as the pads have to wear down on the edges to conform to the wide, circumferential groove worn into the rotor.

Also, I would have told you that EBC Greenstuff sucks. Their performance is equal or slightly less aggressive than stock, and they don't tend to cope with heat very well. For your next set, I'd recommend Ferodo DS2500 or Hawk HP+.

i agree......but.....Glen had one day to find some sort of performance pads...that's what Steve had.....better than dead stock pads at the track!

Yeah, but I probably would have taken fresh stock pads over EBC Greenstuff, for track use. The only benefit to Greenstuff is that they dust a bit less, but if you cook 'em hard, they start to dust just as much, just with a different color (brownish instead of black).

Hmmmmm......I thought that had a least a little advantage over fading compared to the OE pads......

the powerslots and greenies worked well. a little fade at the end of each session but not too bad. it's not like i was the fastest guy out there or anything...

although i think steve installed the rotors backwards (left on right, right on left) i was looking around the paddock&pits today and everyone that had any sort of slotted rotors had the lines running the opposite direction as mine...

anyhow... i had an awesome time. track (buttonwillow) was set up to configuration 25a running counter clockwise. "magic mountain" was teh shit! i was a total wuss the first session, plus it was follow/lead but after my buddy let me ride w/ him for his session in his s2000 i was a lot more comfy and less nervous. my best time was 2:28 and change. im pretty proud of dropping that for my first time best time for the day i think was 2:04, i don't know what car.

thanks for the bits of info on the brakes everyone! i wouldn't have made it to this event without it...
