hi ever since buying my evo 6 it has had carbon pads in it and the wheels were impossible to clean wonder wheels what crap didn't touch the wheels . this stuff was sent to me from the US from a friend who races the ovals . he said this will get any brake dust of no matter how long and thick it has being left and yes he is right take several goes but it all comes off . i will sell this to the forum lads for £10 inc postage for 1 litre this is enough to do to really bad wheels plus enough for about 3 or 4 good cleans this stuff is NON ACID so won't take the paint of.

With carbon metalic pads , there is bits of metal in the compound of the pad, when they get hot,and the bits of metal come of your pad ,brun into the lackar on your wheels,and thats why you won't get it off!! hope this helps,

400. Pretty sure, that Dave had Mintex f4r's in. I've got them as well, and can't get the rust (actually bits of disc) and dust off my wheels. they are kerbed anyway, so am going to get them blasted and re coated (mate owns a powder coating company so should be cheap). I tried neat acid wheel cleaner, that's meant to be diluted 10/1, and it didn't have much affect. the problems really start, when you don't clean them regularly, and let the wheels get really hot on track.

Both me and Dave got 6 pot AP's at the same time (how sweet!)

The standard pads that came with them lasted 2 track days and went down to the shoes! Questmead recommended the harder pads which we both got. The plus side we got a firmer pedal but the downside they shagged the discs, heated them up too much on the track and covered the car in nuclear fallout!

I had to t-cut the whole of my car before I could sell it, what a nightmare! Although the debate has been talked about often on here I would rather buy new pads every couple of track days than clean all the bits of disc off my car and wheels.

I have F4R's and you can clean all the crude off them even after months of abuse it just takes fking ages. I managed to do one wheel over a weekend (yes it takes that long!) using Wonder Wheels, a toothbrush, elbow grease and finger nails. I did 80% of the other wheel the next weekend using the same (minus the finger nails as I had none left!) plus a steam cleaner and then gave up :(. The trouble is the Super T's have too many bloody nooks and crannies (and spokes) for the dust to cling to although now thanks to Justin I have cured that ;)
Just as a tip try warming any acid cleaner before using it, it does speed it up a bit.
