So I removed rear caliper to measure. And oh damn they are small :lol:

Still don't get it. There are two types, one for older vehicles, one for newer. And difference is less than 1mm in both directions.
So it doesn't make any sense :evil:
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW

Iirc, one of the LEAF changes along the way had to do with the brakes; something to reduce the pressure of the pads as they rest against the rotor when not in use, to eek out some efficiency. 2013 model year I think. The calipers were changed so perhaps the pads had to change somewhat also to accomodate that.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.
