    Default Nine Excellence (9e) - Surface Transforms

    Just a quick note that we are now a main dealer for their products and as such will be offering a discount to s9ers. More information will follow but this will be for all Car manufacturers that they offer ST for, so not just Porsche. As an aside we have a new shop coming in the next few weeks which will cover parts such as Akarapovic, Kline, Girodiscs and so for Porsche and others.

    ST is already OEM for some manufacturers including Koenigsegg, Singer, Aston etc.

    In the meantime if you are thinking about ST then give me a shout. We will be having some introductory offers as well of course.

    I am sure most of you have heard of ST but if not then worth checking out https://surfacetransforms.com/

    Nick on here with his Senna is already running ST on the car with great results and certainly for McLaren there seems to be a lot of benefit in pricing and longevity of pads compared to stock.

    Whilst some others have jumped on the ST offerings, we had held back because the infrastructure within ST themselves was not sufficiently in place. No point in offering products if you cannot get them in timely fashion etc. We had them visit us from their Liverpool base recently and they definitely have sorted out infrastructure etc.

    As to the product, the biggest benefit is that you can refurb these up to 3 times (potentially more) and they will do approx. 5000 track miles each time. Pads are normal pagid situation so you don't have to paid crazy pads prices. Refurbing takes one week, and costs approx. 2k for the full set to be refurbed. These also run considerably cooler to OEM and pad usage is considerably less. They offer better performance from cold compared to OEM.

    It is also possible to go from steels to these as well, so not just a replacement from OEM CC Brakes. Lifespan is 10x the OEM.

    Their website is being updated at the moment. Ours is already up to date with Porsche but they also have other Porsche solutions not on theirs that covers 996 range.

    Congrats that is good news. It is a well engineered product and much more robust than PCCBs.

    I was under the impression that they can be refurbed some 5 times - one would have to do a LOT of mileage to get through that and probably as good as lifetime.

    As you say a number of pad options with the Pagid RSC1 and RS29 most often quoted. RSC1 for all round use and RS29 for more track use.
    Though one supplier seemed to be advising against RS29 even for track (not sure I agree though). I've got RSC1 at the moment but would like to try RS29 next.

    Interesting that they are available for 996s too...hmm

    having spoken to them in great detail, they tell me that 3 times is fine - after that it is on a case by case basis. I have seen the 5 quoted, but on the inside of the company I am hearing 3 for definite.

    Yes they have them available for 996 as well but products not on the website. Same for McLaren - they have them all for all models, but not yet published.

    BTW, I asked the question whether they could refurb OEM - the answer is no. Only their design of the CB allows for their product to be refurbed.

    That was going to be my next question to you.
    Oh well....that's a shame.
    I guess it would undermine their own offering.

    It is the way the OEM disc is made compared to the ST one that stops them from doing it. It was one of the first questions I asked them, especially with how risky and poor Rebrake as a company is.

    Will the 380mm 997 size ST rotor fit the carrera gt? Front and rears are 380x34 iirc.
