Re: EBC RED STUFF CERAMIC FRONT PADS

I have them fitted on my GC8 (front brakes are 4 pot). They work well from cold (like stock) and get better when they warm up. For fast street driving they are ok, but they aren't good choice for track/race use as they can be easily overheated.

Bottom line is that if you intend to race the car then i'd go for BlueStuff NDX. If not RedStuff will be ok.

No, never go on track days, I only drive to and from work and weekend shopping, cover approx 100 miles per week, but want good pads to ensure safety when booting 277bhp remapped Scooby on the roads.
