Re: Sprint Brake Upgrade
I can't recommend Ferodo DS2500 enough. I've just replaced my pads which came with my Brembo kit with DS2500's and there is a big difference.
I used the previous DS2000 on my previous brake setup and these were great pads and I never managed to fade them even after repeated heavy braking in the middle of the day in summer (50 degC).
I think there are a number of guys using there cars for road and track and I know a number are using DS2500's.
I used to have a 1.7 Sprint and had a set of Brembo drilled discs and Mintex pads. I used this car on the track and the brakes were very good - no problem with fade or warping.
