    Any good advice on setting the tension on the pad itself. My LHS said use a piece of notebook paper as a shim.

    Always wished I tried this on my Jato before I sold it. I had the steel vented rotor (with steel pads) and admittedly worked better than stock, but I still had little to no comfort in my braking system lol. I'm sure you'll love that braking power!

    She actually started to fade today after a serious speed test the magic number was 136 degrees on the pads. LOL!
