Question Cup Brake Pads on GT3?

Does anyone know if the 996/7 cup brake pads are compatible with the 997.2 GT3/RS? They seem to be much cheaper than Pagid Yellows, if they fit, I might give them a try.

No doubt. I just bought my first set of Yellows for my CS. I hope they last a long time. I used a set of Pagid Blues and I was very dissapointed. They lasted me 90 days, and were GONE....!!!

This is why I was dissapointed with the Pagid Blues. This is what they looked like on July 17th.

And this is what they looked like on October 18th, after 4,825 miles, 6 track days and only 3 months:

Ouch!

Supposedly the yellow 29s last a lot longer, but they are ridiculously priced. I intend to try either Carbotech or Endless pads, see how they do.

Btw, I think I mentioned this previously: I had the stock pads on the car last weekend, which I believe is Yellow 19s. They performed very well, I had a lot of confidence in the brakes going from 150 down to 45 mph repeatedly. I haven't taken them out for inspection, but I'll take some pictures when I do.

I'd be really surprised to find that they are putting Yellows on there stock. I don't think Yellows are legally approved for street use, and if I try to use mine on the street, holy crap....! The squeal is brutal.

Pull a pad out, and snap a picture of the back of it. I'd love to know exactly what they are putting on those cars.

But are those 19s or 29s? Frankly, I do not know what they are, something to ask during tech tactics maybe

29's on the front, 19's on the back. They are both squealing (front and back), but the bulk of the noise is coming from the front (29's). More likely because of brake bias than because of a compound difference.

The stock brakes on my car squeel as well, not like the way in your video, but they do.

My pads always squeel like that. Both stock and R29.
I pay about $734.00 for my pads the last time I checked.

I will try Endless next time I go to Sebring, supposedly the last a bit better. I don't know how pricing compares.

yes, the same pads CUP and ours.

Once I get the prices from Endless, I will let you know.

I have been using Hawk pads for the past 8 years on my cars, I love'em, especially HT-10. For the Cayman, they were $350 for all four, now jumping to $750/800 with Pagids seem hard to swallow for me Carbotechs seem to be about $500, we'll see how much are the Endless ones.

I just received the prices (MSRP), depending on compound, they are between $1200 to $1800

So, I am going with Carbotech and see how they'll do, I just need to pick the right compound

I should probably confess that on my car I am not using the factory noise dampers (to make pad swaps easier). Nor have I chamferred the leading edge of the pads. I suppose if I did those two things, my pads might be quieter.
