disks and pads

Hi I've just invested in a set of 4 pots for my early classic. I have standard 294mm disks however need new pads and want to also upgrade to grooved disks. However I have a budget of 150 ideally. By the looks this limits me to mintex 1144's and grooved disks. I've found some carbon disks and fast road pads, would these be better than the mintex setup? I have limited info sorry as on mobile. Just wondering if carbon disks are any good really? Regards Gareth

Re: disks and pads

I'd use minted 1144 or ferodo ds2500 just because the brands are well known

Re: disks and pads

check out Subaru Performance Parts and check out the black diamond stuff we sell. Its cheaper than such as ebc etc and performs really well. Our demo car runs the black diamond discs and pads.

I can do you a little more discount than the website prices also.
