  1. Long life

    Posted by dave Tosi on 11th Feb 2014

    My first set of CarboTech pads on my 2007 MINI Cooper S have lasted 71K miles, Replacing them only because of a warped rotor vibration.

  2. Carbotech AX6 pads for street and autocross

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Sep 2013

    First impressions are great of the pads over my stock Brembo pads. Great initial bite and extreme stopping power compared to OEM. Very slight noise sometimes but not bad at all.
