Satisfied GranSport GS6 Carbon/Ceramic Pads

[10/24/2005] Reviewed by: James Moushon -

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.8 liter

GranSport GS6 brake pads, front. Marketed as a crossover product, useful for agressive street/light race pads.

Satisfied recommends a 1k mi break-in, so it was no surprise that the pads were a bit vague for the first 500 miles. After 8-900 miles, they were excellent, and at 5k, they are still that way. A bit of dust, a bit of noise on cool/damp mornings, but no fade, no problems. Good initial bite after break-in, easy to modulate.

Decided on these pads because they were something I had not tried. I have had experience with EBC/Hawk/Performance Friction in the past. The GS6 is not a full race pad, and doesn't feel like it. However, I drive cars hard, and have yet to find the limit for these pads. I will likely try something different next time, but I would recommend these pads to anyone looking for a true dual-purpose pad.

Under 30 minutes to remove completely
