DB1344 are the police spec pads in Ultimates. I'm led to believe that they have a greater friction area than the stock DB1331.

i put bendix premiums on mine and they work great. you can definatly tell the difference after you put them on. only problem is the brakes lockup when i put my foot down to hard.

Bendix hey? I m just about to put Ferodo pads on mine. $$$ was the limiting factor. Is there really any real difference or is it just a preference?

Ferodo's are crap to say the least...

As for the pads i use, Bendix a good... i have used a brand called Annis, the're race pads and work like a charm BUT they'll kill a set of discs quickly.

Those Ferodo's are made in Thailand I doubt they would be any good, cheap ****.

I use Bendix Performax with the DBA cross drilled and slotted rotors, well I'm not to happy with them and will be upgradeing to better brakes sooner or later, I have had too many close calls on the road. :roll:

VkTuRbO,
The QFM Pads for a vl turbo are also $40 .
I am using these pads now on my Vn with twin piston calipers and slotted and cross drilled rotors.
I found them to be very good ,and the brake dust is very low.

NO!! Ferodo's are brilliant!
If you get the cheap ****ty Ferodo Zero's, yes, they suck....but what do you expect from a $30 set of pads! (they are probably just as good as any other brand around that price too).

A friend has a set of DS2500's in his Liberty RS rallycar, excellent pedal feel from cold, and they repeatedly stop the fat arsed Liberty (all 1400kg's) like its hit a brick wall, with absolutley no fade, even after 40km stages...I know of a few other people who swear by them too, and they are cheaper than the equivalent Pagids etc.

Yes, they might cost a little more than a set of bendix pads, but their performance is about 300% better! As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.
