Details

Several brake pads on the market boast 'ceramic' technology. DS1.11 is the real thing. It is based upon a chemical family known as Siloxanes. Unlike carbon-based materials, siloxane chains do not decompose at high temperatures and so DS1.11 keeps on working up to the highest temperatures a brake pad could ever see. That means it won't fade and has excellent life, the best in the Ferodo Racing range. Moreover the performance remains exactly the same throughout the pad's (long) life. It is formulated to provide a very flat friction profile at a medium/high level of friction. The pad compression is very low, always, and so pedal travel is short and consistent.

The main characteristics of DS1.11 are:
•    High coefficient of friction (0,50) at all speeds and temperatures
•    Excellent life of pad and disc
•    High initial bite
•    Predictability and control because of the unvarying torque output
•    Low off-brake drag/Excellent release
•    Unvarying performance throughout pad life
•    Firm pedal. Always.

Ferodo Brake Bedding-in Procedure
To achieve optimum performance from Ferodo Racing brake pads please follow the instructions below:
•    Perform 25 to 30 trial brake applications, each of approximately 4 seconds, using around 50% of normal race pedal pressure. To shorten the procedure applications can be made along the straights as well as through bends.
•    On completion of trial applications return to the pit lane. Inspect the surface of the brake pads from the two wheels which have been working the hardest. There should be evidence of contact over the full pad area but without glazing. The pads are now ready to race.
Whilst we recommend that pads are inspected, if time does not allow this, assuming procedure (1) has been carried out and a short period of time has elapsed to allow the brake system to cool, the pads will be ready to race.
Important: to optimize the performance and life of both brake pads and discs, during the bedding-in period heat in the braking system should be built up progressively. Pad wear inspection: brake pads must have at least 2mm of friction material. Excessively worn brake pads must be replaced. Thermal paint temperature control. Using this procedure, if none of the 3 paints has changed appearance and the braking performance is not considered satisfactory, it may be necessary to reduce cooling to the discs. If all 3 paints have changed appearance, it may be necessary to increase cooling to the discs.

Please carefully select the correct part number from the drop-down menu based on your specific model:

03 Mini R50 hatchback. I ordered and received the Aux jack. The company delivered as advertised. The instructions were a bit vague. However, with the help of \"youtube\", I managed to install with little to no trouble. Product works great! No complaints.

I dropped by OutMotoring with my wife today to check it out after giving her a 2015 Mini Paceman last week. Aaron and Meghan took a lot of interest in us as new customers. We were invited to come back to the warehouse and invited to view all the available Mini parts and items. We selected some accessories and were very pleased with the selection and quality of the items we purchased. If you get a chance to drop by, you'll find friendly, knowledgeable and helpful folks there! I plan to return in the future for Mini parts and accessories.

OMG! I ordered Window Rain/Wind Guards for my Mini Cooper, which, by the way, were almost impossible to find and they arrived the NEXT DAY!!! I paid Standard shipping. Amazing. I have not installed them yet but did do a test fit and they look like they are a perfect fit. THANKS SO MUCH!
