My Ď07 S60 just doesnít do well in repeated braking in the hills.
Iíve got the basic 286mm setup. Doesnít take much for them to overheat, and for the pedal to go soft. Weíve got easy cheap upgrades to bigger OEM brakes, maybe at least go up to 305mm.. but I want to see if I can do basics first.
Maintenance wise, the car is in good shape. Brake fluid is clear and less than a couple years old, lines are good, rotors are less than a year old.. but I also installed pads from Max Brakes last year, and they overheat *way* before the factory pads they replaced. Like, one hard thirty second run on a tight technical downhill, and they seriously degrade. They were cheap, and you get what you pay for, so Iím gonna try replacing those first.
Brake dust isnít a huge concern, squeaky brakes donít bother me, but it is primarily a street car, so track pads are a bit much.
What are you guys running? Any and all input and experience appreciated.
