Which brake pads?


Recommended Posts

The only two I have tried out of them is EBC Green and Mintex. I found the ebc green to bite much better and give better braking but wear out quick and produce lots of brake dust. The mintex is not as good as the ebc but doesn't wear out as quick and produces less brake dust. Personally out of the two I would go with the EBC Green as it stops the car much better.

so are these pads better then porterfields (eg) less brake dust, last longer ?? im currently using ebc red stuff which imo are good but dont last very long at all, mine will need replacing in approx 50 miles so they only lasted about 300 miles & thats with normal driving no track days etc

well ive used most pads and i love these, speaking to a few fellow owners who have gone from the porterfields to ferodo pads and there very glad they did ;)

 

saying that i know the porterfield pads are also very good but i prefer the ferodo ones :)

what do you guys think of rotora drilled & grooved discs with there high performance pads.

 

Sorry for hijack but I ordered a full brembo disc & pad combo from greddy and these rotora's arrived 8 weeks later. Ive read website stuff that theyre good but would be nice to hear closer to home.

 

Cheers

When it comes to brake dust, am using ferodos now simply cos they came with my brake kit and they are easily twice as dusty as the portefields. Mine do squeal a fair bit too when hot.

Yes they are a good pad, but with an average of 50% more expensive than P/F i should hope so.

For the money P/F are a great pad and with over 200 sets sold this year alone between z32/s14 and skyline peeps, I am happy with selling em :)

 

Rotora discs, is that them weird shaped buggers ? if you search the name there was a guy little while back who hated them, but one thing with brakes is, so many other issues can either make or break a good set up.

Also the Stillen metal matrix pads Mike Feeney sells are pretty damn good.

 

Reasonably priced, not too much dust and they stop way better than the Mintex ones I had before :cool:

 

Richard :)

I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:
