I just got done bedding in my AX6's on my FWD S. And it is a noticeable improvement. I've used the Hawk HP's on my RX7 FC Turbo, and its quite a difference between the two, much better compound and build quality from the Carbotech than from the Hawks.Yeah. Like I said, I'm limited to autocross and I have a feeling the XP8 pads won't warm up enough on our small courses to be effective. I'm gonna check reviews and see if I can't find any comparisons between the Carbotech AX6 pads and the Hawk HP Plus pads.
Were you able to fit the 16" winter tires on your RS ok with OEM brake calipers?This all being said, what would the minimum wheel size be on the RS? I purchased 16" wheels and winter tires last year for my Nismo, and would have concerns about the larger brake components not clearing
You'll also need the calipers. The RS calipers are bigger in the front. IDK about the rear calipers. I remember NissanEgg saying this because another member wanted to do the same thing.ジューク;2201209 said:I'm considering upgrading the pads and rotors on my '13 SL AWD CVT Juke. Going to stage 2 soon with a tune for street performance, no racing.
My current wheels are 17" Enkeis (OEM 11.7" Front vented disc/11.5" rear solid disc brakes.) If I replace the 17" Enkei wheels with 18" wheels (same size as the Nismo RS) will the Nismo RS pads and rotors (12.6" Front vented disc/11.5" rear vented disc brakes) simply bolt on to the AWD SL's front and rear?
Maybe. The 12.6" rotors and caliper would be cutting it very close to the inner barrel of the wheel. Should not have any spoke clearance. I would test fit the 17's on a RS before going all in on the parts.ジューク;2201641 said:Thanks once again NEgg. I would need to change my 17" wheels to 18" I presume.
