Re: DBA slotted and Bendix Ultimates - bedding in methods
Well I fitted the brakes today. Also did a full flush of brake fluid. The pedal is still a bit soft, but better than it was before. I didn't gravity bleed I did proper brake bleed so theres no air in the lines. I think it just needs more time to come good. Well what can I say about the brakes. They bedded in, I went for a nice drive and they kept getting beter and better.
It lacks initial bite, but I think tha comes down to the pedal being a little soft. When stomping hard it's almost like a turbo in reverse, where theres not much on when you first brake but all of a sudden it just GRABS the car and says "hey fcuker you aren't going anywhere".
All in all I'm happy with it for $300 and I know that I wont have to replace the front brakes again for probably as long as I plan to keep the car.
