Fits all current MINI models (except Countryman).
Poly-Matrix 'Q' Compound front pad set for the 2002 - 2006 MINI Cooper & Cooper S Wilwood Big Brake Kit. These are the same pads originally supplied with the Big Brake Kit. 4 pads per set.
7816 "Q" compound Polymatrix Pads - Operates at the lowest noise and dust level of any performance pad. Polymatrix offers high resistance to fade, long wear, and low rotor abrasion.
[ ] Enhanced friction ceramic formula features the lowest noise and dust properties available from a performance compound pad.
[ ] Improved friction over OE replacement pad compounds with smooth engagement, long service life, increased fade resistance, and quick recovery time.
Temperature range and overall friction value are the primary considerations for pad selection. The pads must be capable of maintaining the proper amount of friction for stopping power within the temperatures that will be realized on the track during the event. Then, overall wear rate must be considered. For most asphalt and road race applications, compounds in the high temperature ranges over 1000°F range are usually necessary. Dirt track, drag race, and street performance applications usually operate at temperatures between 500° and 1000°F. Keep in mind that these are general ranges, and not absolute values. Many factors and unforeseen influences can affect brake temperatures. The best indicator for pad selection will always be on track performance. If pad fade (friction loss) due to overheating occurs, then improved cooling, a heavier rotor, or a higher temperature range pad may all become necessary.
