Hi Team,
I'm having a few doubts on the best way to bed in new disc's and pads ready for racing, I have purchased some new AP 4 pots for my little 106. I have read numerous articles about bedding in and the right and wrong way, do i bed in the disc first with supplied race pads or go straight in with the DS3000's?
It only weighs 799Kgs so getting the heat in the discs might be hard, unfortunately i dont forsee a chance to bed them in prior to the practice laps. Do i just use the practice to bed the supplied in on the new discs or go for broke and bed the the lot in 1 go?
Thoughts appreciated.
Hutch

Couple of emergency stops should do it. Most pads have a break in coating now.

I'd say bed in the disc with the pads you are going to use. The scoring caused will match up maximising your friction surface.

Scuff the disc surface with wire wool though, it will help speed up the bedding in process.

10 med pressure brake applications from say 60 mph to app20 mph should/will bed in the pads to the disc.
