    Does anyone know where I can purchase EBC brake pads online?

    I am after either red stuff, or yellow stuff.


    Cheers!

    They come in 4 colours

    Green stuff = street use

    Red stuff = performance street use/ light race track use

    Yellow stuff = medium track use

    Blue stuff = extreme track use

    from what I've heard EBC pads arn't real good ( In brembo calipers anyway, tended to fade after hard use). Best I've heard about are the Ferodo 2500 series pads for street/track use or 3500 pads for pure track use. Or maybe racebrakes, RB47's I think they are, heard there good.

    gonna try Bendix Ultimates myself due to being resonable price, see how they go round Sandown in August.

    my 2 cents

    All the people I have spoken too who race at different circuits rave about EBC, thats why I was after some.

    Seems I can only get Red or Green for my car.

    I was going to use ultimates, but heard that they are harder on the rotors than the EBC.

    I wont mention metal kings..lol
