We had a good customer order some brake pads for his "OTM" (Other Than Miata).

It just happens to be a Nissan Skyline GTR.

I thought I'd take some comparison photos to show you the difference compared to standard Miata 1.8 brake pads.

Here is the front pads. Yes that is a Miata FRONT brake pad. The Hawk sticker for reference is 8" long by 2" wide.

Here are the rear pads.

Here are all the pads. Even the GTR's rear pads dwarf our front pads!

Now lets look at the weight difference.

Stock 1.8 Miata pads come in at a svelte 2 1/2 lbs.

The Nissan's are 10 3/4 lbs!

Rear Miata 1.8 pads are a feather weight 1 1/2 lbs.

The 4-wheeled Gozirah's rear pads are 4 3/4 lbs! That's almost twice the weight of the Miatas front pads!

I've never had any issues with stock brakes on the Miata but I am normally aspirated. Can you imagine the performance that requires this kind of stopping force? Simple amazing.

BTW, for comparison, the Miata Big Brake Wilwood pads are about half the size of the Skyline's and weigh in at 2 3/4 lbs. :p

I wanna go fast

Thats insane. Twice the size is understandable but four times the size?
