ceramic brakes

Shaun James

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone,

I am new to the club/forum so excuse me if i am going about this the wrong way. I have just bought a F type R 550 with the ceramic brake pack on 20" wheels. I was aware of the ups and downs with the ceramic when i bought the motor but i just loved it. Looking ahead I was just wondering if anyone has come across suppliers of ceramic discs/brake pads as dealers are a bit pricey, Alternatively looking in the future ( car has done less than 20k miles)  is it possible to revert back to steel (what does it entail) and where is best place for the parts. I have looked at the obvious suppliers for steel discs etc any advice/pointers would be appreciated.

EBC makes a ceramic/composite pads that don’t squeek nearly as much.  
I just put cross drilled/slotted rotors on all four and EBC redstuff pads. So far....ME LIKEY!  
I can hang out in the power until it’s seemingly too late to brake effectively and make the turn, but still be able to brake and make the turn!  It’s ridiculously wonderful if you drive you’re f-type the way it’s meant to be driven. Ya know....It is an entry level supercar that with only a few 1000 dollars in the right place can actually turn a sub 3 second 0-60 time and roll low/mid 10’s in the quarter mile.  Spec that against a hurrican or a 570 or whatever...it’s there.  Yes I love my F-type!!!  
Anyhow...No fade that I’ve noticed yet but I haven’t had it to the track to really push it but, from what I can feel now....ooooh yeaaaaah!!!  She bang!   Lol

EBC also makes a yellow stuff ceramic/composite pad that’s more focused towards track performance needs.  I’ll probably take a set of them when I go and see if there is any considerable difference in the two.

If you visit EBC’s site and you can order direct.  
I think I paid $179 for the set.

there are no warranty issue by running other pads instead of oem Jaguar.  And EBC is a proven high performance company and theirs pads are a fraction of the cost of oem.

Stoptech makes great rotors if you want to replace with conventional rotors.  And as it is, The stock iron rotor/metallic pad setup on the f-type is killer but, the drilled rotor/ceramic pad combo is a definite must if you find yourself needing to stop aggressively, repeatedly for some reason.  😂😂😂

summit racing caries a pretty nice variety of good stuff for F-type owners.
