Bendix Brake Pad Selection & Install

When it comes to choosing brake pads, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” solution.

Many people who are chasing big horsepower in their cars often forget to upgrade their brake system along the way, which leads to lowered braking performance or even failure. FullBOOST headed to Harrop Engineering to enlist their expertise in high horsepower cars and have a new set of Bendix brake pads fitted to a daily driven Holden VF Commodore SS V sedan.

The key to the best performing brake system is matching your brake pads to the type of driving you’ll be doing with your car.

Bendix General CT brake pads are designed for standard daily driven cars on suburban roads and freeways, offering a consistent pedal feel and remaining quiet during braking. But if you’re taking your car to the next level of performance Bendix recommend their Ultimate brake pad range. These brake pads maintain a high friction coefficient even at high temperatures to resist brake fade and prevent a spongy brake pedal, which is the perfect solution for high performance cars for street or track duties.
