Car in an m2 competition

I would like to run Ferodo ds1.11 for track days and switch back to oem pads in the street

Any experience doing this, do these 2 brake compound mix well without any judder or other problems

Please let me know in you do that and let me know if it's fine

Thanks

Ferodo advertises that you can swap between ds2500 and 1.11 without issues and donít need to re-bed the track pads.

I havenít tried Ferodo, but I mix use PFC08 and BMW factory pads with no issues.

Before switching to DS2500s on the street, I ran the DS1.11s and OEM pads back to back. Never had any issues with brake judders.

Perfect amazing answer guys

Since my car is like new, oem brakes pads are really like new so dont feel like buying ds2500 for the street as long as my street pads are good

Thanks

I didn't even swapped back to stock and used the 1.11 on the street without any issues. It wasn't too squeaky either.

tropicatango - like detroitm2 said you can definitely swap them back & forth. Might find that re-bedding after each swap will be necessary if any issues/judders do pop up. The swap between 2500 & 1.11 would not require re-bedding if you want to make the switch after you use the oem up.

I get the opposite on both cars that I run 1.11s at the track. Absolutely cringe worthy when I pull up to a stop light. Like so bad that dogs cry out in pain, windshields get cracked, everyone around grabbing their ears and then flipping me the bird bad.

LOL. Yeah, same. I drive my car to Grattan (about 2 hours away), and typically throw my track pads on before I leave so I have one less thing to mess with when I get there. Sounds like a damn bus once they've warmed up.
