They are okay for the track. I would use something more suited for track use like Porterfield R4s pads. Are you wanting to use the pads for the street as well, or are you willing to switch pads at the track?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by 99prelude:
Are these basically more aggresive street pads than OEM? Are they any good for the track? Other than this I will have a stock brake setup excluding ATE superblue.
i guess it would be good, because the instant noodle is good itself.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by 71dsp:
AEM's are made by Nissin, who makes our stock pads. I wonder what the difference is in the compound.

i have aem pads on my lude....i'm quite satisfied with them, i paid $36 shipped....at the time i was decided between these and axxis metal masters, but i went with the aem's because i had heard so good stuff about them...they provide excellent performance in comparison to stock pads...brake dust is not too heavy and is of a light color so it doesn't get your wheels looking like **** after one day....and mine tend to only squeak right after i start the car when i'm braking at low speeds (which would be expected since they are metallic based pads and haven't had the chance to warm up)....i haven't had the chance to test them at the track, so i can't vouch for their 100-0 performance, but for street/aggressive street, they are great</font>
Did you remember to bleed the brakes afterwards?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by jbalzak:
I put on Aem pads and SS Lines at the same time and after the break in period i definately felt a difference. My pedal seems like it feels softer, although i would say the performance is definately increased. Absolutely no dust issue either.</font>
Hope all goes well, some dealerships will not install aftermarket pads, even though these happen to be made by the same manufacturer.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by Ng Luder:
woa woa wait a minuite. i thought about getting AEM pads awhile back but i was told here that with just the pads, there wont be much of a difference in braking. the only difference i would feel if i get the ENTIRE big brake kit or at least some kind of performance rotors.
so just the pads can make a noticeable difference?
if so, im gona go buy some at my dealership and have them install it! its so damn cheap! the pads i mean... nothing like some $400ish mod im always getting.
