Review: Axxis Ultimate Carbon Ceramic Brake Pads
Application: 01 GTS 6 Spd.

Installation was pretty sraight forward. The new pads did not come with their own anti-squeal shim pads or shim grease so I had to buy it at Autozone. I used a 6" C-Clamp to compress the front brake pistons for enough clearance. The rear brake pistons needed to be bleed a little for clearance. After you are done, depress the gas several times and check brake fluid resevior and see that it is at MAX level.

Test Drive: These pads provide awesome initial bite. I have found that I have been stopping/slowing down too soon while driving around the city. The real test will come in 2 weeks which is when the next autox event will be held.

I bought these pads because I was experiencing brake fade while autoxing. The last few turns which involved hard braking really was difficult when they pads were really hot in ambient 105+ degree weather.
