Hi Julian
Have you noticed a difference in your brakes since the new fitting of the
100 brake pads

Braking is better, but that might just be the new pads.
Also getting reasonably quick fade after 2-3 roundabouts in quick succession, but suspect that they are still bedding in.
Having said that my disks are quite worn, particularly at the rear.
If the fading doesn't improve over the next 1000 miles I will look at upgrading the disks to the DBA vented and slotted disks.
My policy at the moment is to upgrade things as and when they need replacing.
Cheers,
Julian

In my experience the fading is due to cheap pads. Or soft light duty type pads. I always try to fit Mintex, as for a Land Rovers (or anything big) they seem just right. I tried some cheap pads once and the bite was great.... for about 2 seconds! Then they faded very easily. Whereas racing pads (which are a much harder compound) only work when they are hot.
Cheers,
Matt

I fitted braided lines when I renewed my discs, 'bought a length of hose and the fittings and made them up myself ,3"
longer incase I decided to lift it later.
The brakes are superb now (standard pads).
I considerd cross drilled discs from Scorpion racing but they were way to expensive to justify.
I will try 100 pads next change.
Slee offroad do the drilled discs ($120) as I'm sure you know Julian?

Julian,
A concern about cross drilled brakes in a 4x4 vehicle that is used off road
is that the little holes get gunged up with mud and small stones which can
lead to the rapid waring of both discs and pads.
