I just wanted to let you guys know that I ordered the R4S pads for my 1st gen but they were the pads for the Speed6 conversion. They still honored the discount when I told them that I was with the National Probe Owners Network and that the pads were actually going to be put onto my Probe. This will be the second time I've dealt with Porterfield and it will certainly not be the last. Those guys rock.

The R4S'sI installed on my PSE last summerstill work great. I have noticed that they need to heat up a lil to get maximum braking. But it doesn't take much. It got me out of some sudden-mishaps that the other brands I've tried wouldn't have.

Ive been thinking of switching over to the R4-S pads as well as stainless lines next year when I replace my rotors but I have 06+ Mazda 6 front brakes. Are those eligible for the discount or do all four pads have to be Probe pads?

Probe and MX-6 only, I asked when I purchased my pads a couple months ago. If you stated you had upgraded calipers they might work with you there.

Racy-Stacey: I thought I'd thank you for doing all this work to hook all the people up with these brake pads and other such items, I haven't ordered them yet but after all the good reviews that I have read on this thread I will most definitely be ordering the R4-S pads and SS lines.
So one again, thank you for what you have done for us.

Thanks Stacy for working this out. I just ordered mine and the process was very easy. I would also agree that the Porterfield R4-S pad is by far my my favorite. I've used many different pads including the popular KVR (terrible pad!) and have come to the conclusion that the R4-S has the best balance: Great warm bite, reasonable cold bite, low dusting, and good wear.
The bite is really strong. I feel like I have a old school cadillac braking system. Ya know where you bearly put any foot pressure down then ***bamm*** your braking! I raced out at California Speedway this past weekend.

Hmm, I just ordered Front and Rear '07 Mazdaspeed6 Calipers and Sportstop Drilled & Slotted Rotors. I was going to order Hawk HPS pads, I may call them up and see if they can do anything for me.

Porterfield has been one of our greatest supporters. We lost Andy Porterfield back in April of this year. He was such a great guy and loved by so many in the racing community.

I know Tim is still working at Porterfield and is keeping the torch running over there. I hope the Probe Community will continue to support this great organization for they have supported us for almost a decade.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased from them.!

Hey Stacy,is Porterfield still in business? Do they have any kind of deals going on? I need another set of R4S's for my 94 SE to go with my new Sumitomo HTRZIII's. Fantastic brakes that lasted me some 7 years. Worked better & lasted longer,& I was driving over 300 niles per week up to march 2007.
