Re: WHAT BRAKE PADS

i test drove a scooby with redstuff pads and could not believe how bad they were when cold. There was no bite at all, i was shocked. I've heard they really need to be warmed up properly, but that's not always ideal on the road.

As above, i had ferrodo DS 2500 on my MY99 and they had a great bite from cold and improved my braking.
