Since Race Technologies is the US importer and distributor for Brembo - indeed is to all intents and purposes Brembo in North America and some other markets - this should be no surprise! It would be nice if, as Alex says, they bring out an OE application, but their first priority will be supporting and selling more Brembo (and Sabelt and other related brands) equipment. That's what has made them very successful and wealthy, very rapidly.

Just read your review, good stuff

How's the noise on the street? Performance wise they sound similar to my DTC70S but the noise on the street with those is insane and I'm too lazy to swap pads lolz.

Fantastic review, Alex

I can vouch for the feedback in OP. I've used the RE10 pad for two track days at Barber Motorsports Park and they were phenomenal. Minimal wear, yet impressive bite brake application after brake application.

Interesting, I'd like to try these. The brembo street pads are the ONLY street pads I've ever liked other than OE BMW, so I do feel like they know how to make good pads. Just need to wear through my backlog of PF track pads, first

I did at first.

Over time they developed pad deposits. They also seem to wash out faster than normal when it rains.

Yep, I got massive shimmy after a very hot mountain run. Never an issue with OE, same road.

Necrobump!

Just ordered a set of these for track use.

Not a cheap entry point, but I'm hoping they're not more expensive in the long term due to greater longevity (of pads and rotors)!

First time not running PF01s (on track) in 12 years
