Comparing ACRE Brake Pads for MX-5s

ACRE Brake Pads are used by many Japanese tuners and have a great reputation in Japan. Here's a side-by-side of ACRE Brake Pads for all generations Miatas. Here are some explanations about the following graphics :

Initial bite : this is when you press the brake, is it aggressive (high) or relaxed (low).

Fade : this is the "endurance" of the brake pad when racing, great (high) or low endurance (low).

Wear : this is the durability of the brake pad, short (high) or long (low).

Control : this is the level of modulation you can do with the brake pad, a lot (high) or not much (low).

Disk life : this is how the brake pad will affect your disk life, not a lot (low) or a lot (high).

Dust : this is the level of brake dust that the brakes will produce, not a lot (low) or a lot (high).

As mentioned in the graphics, all of the bars are in comparison to stock brake pads (set at level 5).

There is also additional information such as Proper Rotor Temperature (so they are optimal), Coefficient of friction, Material & Stage (where they should be used).

Let's compare all brake pads! The order below starts with their most racing to their most street brake pad.
