Is anyone replacing their stock drive shaft on the 2015-17 GTR350? Is it a two piece like the GT?

I have all ready worn through my front and rear ???? pads. There are clips on the ears/end of the pad that are almost touching my rotors. I usually go through three sets of fronts for every set of years. I've done near a hundred brake jobs after nearly 30 years of racing and I have never seen rear pad wear like this. The brass clip doesn't appear to be a retaining or anti-rattle clip and appeared very close to the rotor when fresh.Ford is saying pads are back ordered through June which is not going to work. I did buy a set of fronts when I got the car but never bothered with rears.I contacted my race car builder to reach out to Brembo for pads. Any hands on knowledge would be appreciated. I usually run my pads just shy of the backing plate which these clips will prevent.

How many miles did this take to get the pads to nothing and I assume your car is tracked  regularly ?

 

I would call FRPP and as you already thought of Brembo ..... Im thinking the rear caliper is a generic that I bet fits many 

manufacturer cars which means the pads would work as well

 

Let us know if you find aftermarket pads

I have 4000 miles and 4 track days. Two at mid-ohio and 2 at the Autobahn. I figured out the tabs on the pads are wear sensors so I bent them out of the way giving me more pad material remaining which I took advantage of yesterday. I have fall-line motorsports researching brake pads for me.

Mid Ohio is one of my favorite tracks. Ran it twice in my life time ..... beautiful course

I have 3000 miles and about 900 on track and I have 3/4 pad left.
Sounds like the traction control is eating up the rear pads.
