The brakes are the absolute weakest link in this car in a track day scenario. No one but yourself is liable for mishaps. If it is low, pour in some fresh fluid.
Thoroughly clean off the brake rotor, caliper bracket, brake caliper assembly and the lug nut studs with brake parts cleaner spray. Models Include: Audi A3 8P 2006-2013 All models Audi A4 B7 2005-2008 All models Audi A6 C6 2006-2011 3. Place the right puck for your piston on top of it. If the caliper won't fit over the pads, you may need to turn back the piston a bit further. But consider how quickly you want — or need — to go from 60 to 0. Make sure whatever you use is clean; you do not want any contaminants getting into the fluid.
Don't replace garbage with more garbage, and the job itself is easy as shit once you get an idea of what needs to be done. Another thing to consider is that going to root of more track oriented pads mean you will have to deal with them on the street. They not only show a friction related to speed and temperature, they even fail and fall into dust after less than two years. Sit in the driver's seat of the vehicle and firmly press the brake pedal a few times to restore the brake line pressure. Wish stop tech included the anti rattle clip that slide into the Caliper disc holder. Pull the old inner and outer brake pads out of the bracket. The caliper is now ready to install new pads.
I think the issue happens because the pad shifts when the car goes in reverse. If it were my car, I'd throw on some Porsche Cayenne rear brakes or something similar.

Golf R and Scirocco posts are welcome. They also improve braking in off road conditions of wet, mud or sand. It's typical for braking performance to suffer slightly as the pads begin their wear-in period. There are several options available to you here, but you will need the use of a special caliper piston tool. Please verify the correct replacement part numbers for your vehicle before purchasing new pads by visiting the manufacturer's application guide, using the website, calling a dealership or an auto parts store. When finished with both sides, press on the brake pedal repeatedly to make sure that the pads and the pistons seat properly.

The same rule applies to the brake discs that should be checked each time you replace your brake pads. This paste basically keeps the pads and the pistons glued together and prevent noisy vibration. Rear pads tend to wear more slowly than front pads, which mean they may need to be changed less frequently. It would be best to use a or an electric impact wrench with a torque stick to properly tighten the lug nuts. In the front, you can simply push the pistons straight back into the caliper. Figure 16 Before you begin compressing the calipers, check your brake fluid reservoir.
Replace the brake fluid reservoir cap as soon as possible since brake fluid is hygroscopic readily absorbs moisture from the air. Even up to truck weights these pads grip and do not heat fade. I assume quite a bit, if you're looking to replace your pads. Fit in same position when installing, or braking will be uneven. Line up the bolt holes in the caliper with their corresponding holes inside the slider pins contained within the bracket. Less fade means you will have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust.
