STOP! These pads are ONLY for carbon-ceramic calipers with iron rotors. DO NOT use these pads with carbon-ceramic rotors! If you have converted your CCB brakes to iron rotors and re-using your gold 6-piston calipers, these are the correct pads. Please contact us with any confusion or questions - we don't want you to ruin a set of carbon rotors!
Pagid RS29 Yellow brake pads are formulated for iron discs used with CCB calipers on F80 M3 and F82 M4. The RSL pads offer a much-higher friction coefficient and substantially better stopping power than standard BMW pads.
The RSL29 compound is a low metallic resin-bonded material containing steel and composite aramid fibers. This compound is known as very user-friendly with smooth modulation and release along with a low-medium friction level. It has been very popular in club racing, enduro, and track days when used with 200+ tread-wear tires (sport and street tires). If using <200 tires the RST pads may be more effective.
Pagid RSL29 Characteristics
+ medium friction level
+ very good fade resistance
+ stable temperature range with slight drop-off as temperatures exceed 550°C
+ excellent wear and easy on rotors
+ moderate initial bite with excellent modulation
Front and rear brake compounds should be closely matched to maintain brake balance. Never upgrade one axle and not the other.
