Which Pads?

Post by numbnuts on Mon Mar 16, 2015 6:26 pm

Which pads (no not the lady type) brake pads,

I have been using green stuff and find them OK no brake fade etc but wandered if it is worth spending a few more ££s as thats all i have ever used. I would prefer more initial bite.

so which would you have on a 600kg car?

EBC green stuff
Mintex 1144
Ferrodo DS2500

or any others I should think of?

Im on Ferodo DS3000 but I have only used them once at them Plum Pud so cant really give you an Honest opinion seem ok though.

EBC are alright but now they don't discount I think there are better options.

Mintex 1144 I used to run on my old Spitfire (684KG) and I thought they were Mega they used to last a season and half to.

The ones I destroyed in 60 minutes at the Heritage Relay race were Wilwoods own pads but in there defence they were great other than there wear rate.

What calipers do you use.

I have allways used green stuff and found them to be more than adequate.

However, as Ian has said we no longer get the discount, so next time I need pads I will be looking at the wider market, but have no idea yet what else to use.
