Z26's went on mine 2 weeks after I got it
Same here. They have been great. I really do not notice much difference at all other than lack of dust. 3000 miles so far. Got mine at Summit. Was best price with free shipping.

Mine went on yesterday with my newly painted calipers. Red instead of orange. Went with Tenn orange from the factory, $900 denaroes now I changed it to red. As in red neck. Black and red is the theme for this car. Hemi cover and other parts are black and emblems and accesories under the hood are red. Should be done by Wed and then the fun comes to make the changes. That damn brake dust is worst than finding meelie bugs in your grits after a 1/2 bowl.

Honestly your best bet is to have your wheels CQuartzed. It should not be too much to have them done. You will never have to use a sponge again on your wheels. Just rinse with the garden hose and all the dust just rinses away like you scrubbed them.

2019 Hellcat Redeye Challenger Widebody
#28
Z26's went on mine 2 weeks after I got it
Same here. After putting up with all the dust like I did on my '15 HC, I switched to the Z26 Extremes at around 700 miles on the Redeye. I must say, I'm impressed at how well the brakes still are.

They don't quite bite as hard during normal driving which IMO make them more predictable and everyday street friendly. As said by others, the brakes still seem to work great if you need to drop the anchor quick! Drove it around quite a bit and zero dust all over the place like the stock Brembos did. Glad I changed them! -Cheapest place I found to buy them was Rock auto.

Was cleaning the car the other day and showed the wife all the brake dust on the wheels. She refused to believe that the dust was from the brake pads. She said I never use the brakes.

She can be a real ....

Ordered the Z26 this morning, I've read several thoughts on lubing and going without, any one having squeal issues?

Maybe the dust is where they got the name for the car from. Lots of dust = Redeye.

I only used a very light coat on the pad backing plates. You’ll see the original Brembos had the same when you remove them. I also lightly coated the pins, but might not be needed. - And I have no squealing or anything...

EDIT- just a thought...if I would have gotten the Z23 pads instead of the Z26 pads, I probably would not have used any lube on the backing plates since those are a hard rubber...

Appreciate it! Did they come with the lube? Did I mention I can't wait to be done with this dust??

Yes, each box comes with a packet of lube. Barely enough for a very light coat on the backing plates and pins.

I wanted to touch base on this. I would like to change to a lesser dust pad, but I like good brakes. I drive spirited on the street and hope to hit a track day or 2. I was looking at the Z26 because that seems to be the "Go too" in most forums but I don't see them being available for the WB SP unless I'm missing something.
Also, I change all of my bikes to EBC, but I don't see anyone talking about them. Are there issues or not available?

Z26 works just fine for the widebody, its the same brakes as the standard Hellcat.
