    Just ordered the Race Driven mud rat pads. $38 and shipped same day. I'm not sure how they'll hold up, but figured at less than $40 I'd try them. Got just over 1500 on my OEM pads. The rears are shot, front still have a little on them.

    *****oh FML, I just realized I only ordered the fronts...not the whole set. I guess that's what I get for trying to order from my phone instead of an actual computer. Dammit!******

    At Race Driven shipping is free when over $100 so I ordered two complete sets. I was not impressed, got less than 400 miles on a set. 1400 or so on OEM pads.

    Adapt your machine to how you intend to use it.
    Every mod you do to a machine will have gains somewhere and losses in other areas.
    Decide what you want and what you can live with or without.

    It's been stated that personal conditions dictate "best" but I thought I'd say some more about Swamp Dog brass pads. Marketed for mudders, I decided to try them given my issues. Obviously some performance is lost since they are brass, you are giving that up for longevity in harsh conditions. I have 200+ miles on a full set. I pulled the fronts to swap to EBC SV series for better braking for the HM trip to WV tomorrow. The fronts looked outstanding, no wear that I could tell. They have grooves and spots in them from rocks and sand but whereas standard brake pads would be dug out, these were only scarred. I'm leaving the rears brass for now since that's where all my problems have been.

    the rotors were fine, evidently the backing material is softer than the rotor
    I put Niche pads on, we will see how they last.
    shortly after I got the machine I spent four days in the mud, cleaned the machine after but did not service the brakes
    maybe that is the difference in longevity, playing or not playing in the mud and water

    Since I was installing the lift and waiting on the wheel spacers to arrive, I decided to inspect/replace the OEM pads.
    2522 miles on the buggy w/ original pads.
    Fronts looked to good to mess with. Rears had a little more wear so I pulled them.
    I could have gotten a lot more miles out of them, but since I was waiting on the spacers I replaced with the Niche pads.
    Pics of OEM pads w/ 2522 miles.
