Alcon ADex Rear brakes

Anyone running Alcon rear brakes on their road Evos?

Just ordered a set and curious to see weather people noticed much of a difference


Cheers
James

Bread and water for me now

According to people who are in the know they've said

When using a 6 pot front caliper, Fitting decent 4 pot rear callipers will give a more progressive braking force at the rear, thus better utilising rear grip before lock-up

The standard rears have less overall power and will be easier to lock-up with 6 pot fronts due to the different master cylinder piston area to caliper piston area ratio.

I run Alcon on the front and std rear but with aggressive pads on the rear and they work well.

I didnít notice much difference in overall stopping power after I fitted the Alcon rears. I did notice straight away that the rear of the car sits down now under braking instead of the nose diving down. On track the standard rear brembos went brown with heat but the rear Alcons donít get hot in comparison they donít even register on the Alcon temperature strips Iíve got fitted.

Thing you always need to be wary of, and ideally to avoid, (especially on non-abs equipped cars) is rear locking. This can generally be achieved by making sure you don't run an especially aggressive rear pad compound, but fitting a proportioning valve will very likely achieve the same purpose but without compromising on the initial phase of rear application - ie initial bite and pressure ramp up rate. Of course, on cars with abs, you can get away with a non-optimal arrangement, but it's not really the right way to do things.

I have front and rear set. Same pads on every corner.

Cant say is it worth at street but on track makes difference.

Yep front and rear alcons on mine....on the road a bit pointless,but on the track...different league!

Pad choice is crucial. ..ds2500 feel utter shyte, like blocks of wood on the road after using something like carbotech xp10
