Default General CT and slotted rotors

Hi, I have a BF XR6 non-turbo and need to replace the brakes and rotors. I bought (but haven't installed yet) DBA T3 slotted with Bendix General CT pads.

Reading around there seems to be mixed advice whether these pads should be used with slotted rotors due to the residue that can build up in the slots possibly causing shudder.

Does Bendix have any pad recommendations for DBA T3 4000 series rotors?

My primary concern is good bite from cold to hot; noise and dust I can live with but they have to work well the second I get in the car.

Shudder city. I had it within 2000 kms, ditched the Bendix for QFM and no problem since.

Thanks for your enquiry, the DBA T3 Slotted rotors are better suited to friction material such as Bendix Ultimate brake pads utilise, shudder is caused by brake wear from runout of the rotor. Bendix Ultimate will give you excellent effectiveness from cold to hot, brake dust will occur, you will have very good stopping power.
