Details

For years brake pad selection is something we've had issues with in the MK2 community. Porterfields have always been considered one of the best pads on the market but finding a vendor to stock them has proven difficult from time to time. I've always wanted to carry them but there is a VERY large buy in that's required to get that account.

I really wanted to be able to offer them for my Big Brake Kit Group buy with the added bonus of stocking units for the MK2 an MK3. But a group buy in the traditional sense isn't possible because they have VERY strict MAP (minimum advertised pricing) Policies so MSRP is all vendors area allowed to advertise. What I will do is cover the cost of shipping these for the duration of the group buy.

I will be offer their R-4 and their R4-S pads for the Dynapro BBK Caliper, MK2, MK3 and MK4 calipers. After the group buy I will only be stocking Dynapro, MK2 and MK3 Pads.

So this isn't really a group buy to get better pricing, it's just a group buy to save you a couple of dollars on shipping while giving me the opportunity to be able to place a large enough order to stock these for future sales.

I know a few of you asked before and I did check but unfortunately there is no such pad, they either discontinued it or they never did make it.

I couldn't find anything bad about the r4-s anywhere, nothing but rave reviews except for folks looking for extreme duty pads for track day only cars. In for a set for stock brakes, looking forward to trying them out.

Have you ever purchased these for the Q45 in the R4-E compound? I don't see any in the catalog, only R4-S...I can always call on Monday but was just curious if this was something they ever offered before.
This seems to be the only negative to the Q45/MPV BBK - there are few race pads available, and even less endurance race pads. I'll probably have to send a set of backing plates to Porterfield or Carbotech so they can build me some.

Support for George and his ambition to carry a great product.

I've been running the Porterfield R4-S (+Brembo rotors) for many, many years on my '83. I'll never run anything else. The stopping power is bar none far beyond that which I have ever experienced with Hawk or others. Initial cold or extended hot braking, these things bite. Pulling 80MPH up to the highway exit ramp and braking hard only moments before entering the cloverleaf with maximum assurance. Porterfield is the only pad to run, in my opinion.

Recently switched over to Porterfields on the MKIV as well. Hawks were poor performers.

I brake for snakes.
