330mm Brembos - Have you uprated yours ??

And if so what did you do

I've been looking for new rotors and pads post remap and have found either EBC or Tarox drilled and grooved discs with EBC 'Yellow Stuff' pads quite tempting

Things is the EBC rotors are half price compared to the Tarox ones on one site I found

Is there a reason for this (i.e. The EBC rotors are -shi-ite )

Why not take advantage of the 40% discount we receive from Red Dot and use a pair of their grooved discs with a set of Ferodo DS2500 pads?

Augusto needs to make the discs up apparently and I'm too impatient to wait


(Especially now they are relocating )

Not entirely relevant but in the world of mountain bikes, EBC kit is totally useless, you might as well use saucers for discs and dairylea for pads.

Their car discs might be slightly better for all I know!

I have used the EBC OEM replacement pads before and they have been spot on, that was with Ferodo DS2500 pads tho.

got AP disks and pads all round now and they are superb, pricey tho

Re: 330mm Brembos - Have you uprated yours ??

heh, I was ment to say I have used the EBS OEM replacement DISKS with ferodo pads... OOPS!

either way, I cant say anything bad about the EBC disks, pads are another story. have heard several reports of the green and red stuff pads shattering under heavy (track) use. I would stick with the ferodo pads or mintex are just as good.

Re: 330mm Brembos - Have you uprated yours ??

I honestly wouldnt bother with drilled or grooved discs unless you plan to use the car on the track - Brembo plain discs are some of the best and then go for PF or Ferodo pads

Its the pads that make all the difference

Drilled discs are NOT recommended for track work.

Where's the cheapest place to buy standard discs then (305mm)?
Any ideas?
