    Pads for a8 brake upgrade?

    I assume I would just buy pads meant for the tt since it is made up of a8 rotors and tt caliper carriers. Kinda a noob question but isn't that what I would do.

    all the A8 kit basically does is increase the diameter of the rotors while moving the pads farther out for better heat dissipation

    that and it just gives you more clamping force since it uses a bigger rotor
