Hey guys -- I need fellow NCC members help, please. I am going to VIR for the Oktoberfest BMWCCA CR --- and I would prefer not to run carbotech xp11's all around.

I am going to use it for the fronts; but, I need something for the rear better than OEM. Not sure if I can get away with axxis ultimates (don't have those anyways -- only pep boy rear pads).

Does anyone have rear pads I could borrow that would give me a decent bias b/w carbotech's and the rear? Maybe cool willy's? Or, carbotech XP9's, etc.

TIA

Eric was not real happy with XP11 front and XP9 rear at the last race. I think he was going to try XP11 front and XP10 rear.

James,

I have XP9 rears you can have if you buy me lunch + soda :) They have about 1/3 left on them. Im going to switch out to XP10s in the rear for VIR.

I ran XP11/XP9 combo and felt the rears didnt grab enough....

Thanks! With 1/3 on the rear -- is that enough to last me the entire weekend?

You're pushing it with the "soda" though, you know!!! :D ...

With a stiff suspension like mine, running XP10s all around feels pretty good. :eeps:

James, if you remember/have room, can you bring that TWS oil with you? Thanks
