This is really scary and just another reason I won’t be buying RedDot again.
The discs came from Hormann motorsport and came with Ferodo DS2000 pads. This was a great combination. Great performance and looks too.
When the Ferodo pads were worn out I bought RedDot because I couldn't get the Ferodo's over the internet at the time.
After many problems with RedDot I finally received a set of their 'race spec' pads on their recommendation.
The pads were OK but very noisy and not as good as the Ferodo pads.
Within about 3000kms the discs went from good to very worn with some uneven grooving around the surface and large lip around the edge. I never actually measured them but they must have been close to the minimum. And the pads were completely finished – NO pad material left.
I think the shape of the RedDot pad was not compatible with the grooved / drilled design. The RedDot pads were completely flat where as the Ferodo pads were slopped at the edges.
I still have the original Hormann disc / Ferodo pad setup on the back and there is still plenty of life left in them.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Hi guys,
I finally found a place that can source some Ferodo brake pads in the Midlands ...
Now I just wonder what is the best pads/discs combination....
Bearing in mind that I''l definitly buy the Ferodo pads, should buy
1) Original Alfa discs (Iw as told they were quite "soft"...)
3) Red Dot
4) C.A.R (recommended by EBspares)
5) Any other suggestions ?
