Ferodo has released their incredibly versatile DS2500 pad compound for the popular 2016+ Miata and Fiat 124 Spider! The DS2500 is the perfect pad for the Miata and Fiat for just about every environment: Daily driving, autoX, and track duty. The DS2500 has enough heat capacity and longevity for heavy track use on cars as light as these, while still remaining well-mannered and quiet for daily driving duty!
Initial Impressions and thoughts!
Obviously we could be biased but these are our completely honest impressions of their DS2500. We have been running these in our shop car and they have been a huge improvement over the stock pads and hawks that we've tried. Modulation is fantastic and they hold up well to track driving. Towards the end of a 25 min session they can show a bit of fade but they do not disappear like the stock pads.
They are also transfer layer compatible with the more aggressive track dedicated DS3000 which we hope they will be releasing soon =). This means you can swap back and forth for track days without having to re-bed pads!
Overall a fantastic pad and we recommend them as a tremendous upgrade over stock. We've were super excited with the release and have been loving them on the street and track.
They have both the Brembo and Standard caliper covered so everyone wins =).
