Model S Plaid Rear Brake Install | How to Change Brake Pads

So my rear rotors were thrashed after I destroyed my stock brake pads on the track (live and learn). I needed new rotors ASAP, and Mountain Pass Performance came through for me… I was going to run the Unplugged Performance rear carbon ceramics, but they were not available at the time.

Check out the install and how to swap out these rear brake pads!

  1. This is a first to me seeing the "rear" calipers… These Should be 4 piston from like a large truck like a 2500 Silverado, the Camaros are too small, even though they are much larger than the Plaids.. The weight of a Model S warrants this along with upgraded brake lines. The fronts need to be six piston oversized according to the weight of the vehicle, or 8 pistons, both with oversized rotors considering the larger wheels. The Plaid is very capable in accerlation, now with these brake upgrades it would be able to pull down from 120- to 200 MPH. Always great content! Thanks!

  2. Hey, I enjoy your videos, keep them coming ๐Ÿ‘
    Next time you could just remove the e-brake electric motor and just use an hex key to screw the piston in, takes only a couple of minutes ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
