Bendix Test Pilot: Nissan 200SX S15 Ultimate Brake Pad Install
Jun. 15, 2017
The Nissan Silvia was an affordable sports car with all the right ingredients. Turbocharged power, rear wheel drive, and striking good looks is a timeless recipe, and the last Silvia had all of them in the right proportions.
This Silvia, or 200SX when it was sold here by Nissan Australia, is the last generation made, going by the chassis code, S15. The previous generations were already legendary mainstays in the modified car scene, thanks to the balance of power, handling and styling.
The S15 has the most powerful factory engine ever in a Silvia, and is paired with a six speed gearbox, driving a helical LSD in the rear. It drives as good as it looks, too.
Without any modern electronic nannies other than ABS, the driver has full control over the S15. To use grip for the racing line, or hang the tail out for fun, the S15 can do both in equal measures.
The longevity of the S15 has been bolstered by the staggering amount of aftermarket parts for it.
From extreme wide body kits, to off the shelf racing and drifting suspension setups, the S15 can be fully customised for drag, drift, racing or just for the street. Bendix has just the right brake pads to match the S15’s versatile roles.
The Bendix Ultimate is a high performance brake pad that is engineered for pure stopping power on windy roads or on the track. However, daily drivability is not compromised, thanks to the special Bendix noise absorbing shims.
Providing excellent pedal feel from the getgo, the Bendix Ultimate is highly tolerant of extreme temperatures for fade free braking.
