Re: brakes are no goood

Look for the M1144 and M1155 compound that Mintex produce for a bit more braking performance, alternatively try the DS2500 and DS3000 from Ferrodo.

Having said that, the reason you're not stopping quickly enough is all down to your tyres at the moment, as posted above. The current pads are easily creating enough friction upon the disc surface, it's the loss of cohesion between the tyre and the road surface that needs addressing.

When you get to a stage where you stand on the brakes at the end of a straight and the ABS doesn't kick in, then you can invest in better braking components.
