Get some drilled/slotted rotors and better pads and they will last even longer....
No one will repair a sidewall puncture. The plies are only cord (fabric) and they don’t have the mechanical strength of the belt-supported tread. If any of the cord is torn by either the puncture or the repair, it can fail catastrophically.
Congrats! That’s going to be awesome. I look forward to a full review.
Ask if it will do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.
Super cool and a review is required when you get done!
That is beyond cool!

Yeah, I’m replying to an old thread, but just a bit of info:
Hell the pads are nothing. The caliper mounting bolts, now that’s a job for a big breaker bar. I had to grab a few feet of pipe to go in the end of my breaker bar to loosen the front caliper bolts. And those rotors are no joke either. Monsters. But they work great for those cars. My S8 has about the same size…
Yes they are. So much simpler for swapping pads.
the brake pad ATTACHES to the brakeS!
Nah man... what do you think this attaches to?
The go cook something sheesh
Wilwood might have better corrosion protection that Audi. My neighbor was changing the rear pads on a Q7 and really had to hammer out the pins due to northeast corrosion.
Obviously it’s a brake pad for the luxury yacht your uncle used to have!
Calipers with slide in pads are the best thing since sliced bread. We used Wilwood GP200 2 piston calipers on my schools FSAE car and pad changes were so easy. Just 2 pins retained by little spring clips and then the pads would slide right out. The master cylinders we were using even had return springs in them so the…
I would guess it be used on a 4 wheeled vehicle used to transport people & stuff.
Usually they go inside a caliper, which presses them on a brake disc, which stops the vehicle, so I would assume it’s from a caliper somewhere.
Looks like a brembo type pad with a center slide pin for a drop in style caliper. Audi runs those on the first gen Q7s and most of the brembo calipers I’ve had also have a similar design.
