Default Serpent 960 brake pad ?

What do you guys use to bond the brake pads to the backing plates? The manual says to use CA glue, but i think that would get brittle to soon with the heat, or am i paranoid? Thanks, Matt..................

any high temp/heat resistant adhesive would work fine... Go to your nearest automotive parts store (Pep Boys, Checker, Autozone) You'll find various types that would work for this application....

"or" just pick up a set of these: serpent race brake pads "no glueing nessesary"

I have always used JB Quick Weld to secure pads. It is quick and clean and I have never seen a failure on any pad sets on my cars or any I have built for anyone else. I sand the plate to rough up the chrome and just put the JB Weld on the plates and set the pads into place with a little gentle pressure. Only consideration is that the build thickness of the JB is a little thicker than the CA so you may have do do a little pad sanding to get the thickness back to where you need it to keep the pads clear of the rotors.

CA works fine, but like he said, make sure you scuff the plates to make a good surface for the glue to stick to.

Used the JB today, worked great. Needed to sand the back side of the backing plates to make them fit inside the "caliper"....

Default 903209

Has anyone tried the 903209 Serpent Teflon pads. I am considering trying them but I would like some feedback from someone who has tried them.

You get better modulation when braking using Teflon brake pad.
