Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    GB - Cobalt Friction Brake Pads - Race/sport

    One of the reasons why I got into the E30 chassis was to expand my racing; in the current case with building a car for the ChumpCar endurance racing.

    Since my company is a dealer for Cobalt Friction brake pads and I was already ordering a few sets of pads for the Chumpster, I figured I'd offer up to my fellow r3vlimiteds a group buy to get in on an initial-offering big discount.

    Cobalt Friction has both race pads (XR-series) and a streetable high-performance pad (CSR) in fitments for the E30. These pads offer excellent wear coupled with ability to withstand high temps, high braking torque and easy modulation. One of the reasons why Cobalt Friction is a popular choice in the endurance racing groups. They also have the added bonus of not needing any special break-in process to get the most out of the pad; just slap them on and go.

    I've personally run these brake pads with great success in Spec Miata and on our E90 M3 in the One Lap of America - the event where we used less than half of the pad material on XR1/XR3 pads over the course of 1 week and over 4200 miles, racing on tracks such as Road America, Hallet and Mid Ohio.

    The pads for the E30 retail at $199 for front or rear fitment.

    The initial offering group buy for E30 fitment will be a 15% discount plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $5 per axle-set (for US shipment).

    $174.15 per set shipped.

    I plan to place the order February 28th. The brakes should be sent out approximately 2 weeks after order (The process is I send in the order, they tool up and make the brakes and send to me. I package and send out).

    Anyone who has signed up by then via posting a response here or has contacted me via email/PM will receive the 15% discount.

    If you are interested in other vehicle fitments, you can get a 10% discount.

    Contact me via PM or email at for more details, questions, pad compound recommendations or other info.
