    well i had ebc red's on my astra sri turbo, and was happy with them on road and track till my fluid boiled

    ive got ATE blue brake fluid so the fluid shouldn't boil, and im quite happy with the stopping power on my standard pads, but don't know what they will be like once they are very hot.

    i was thinking of ebc yellow's but they are very expensive compared to road pads, so was wondering if there are any decent road pads to go with instead?

    EBC red stuff pads and groove/dimple discs lasted just 6000 miles on my old scooby. Discs were warped and pads had no meat left. Couldn't believe it. Only thing that led to me having a good look them was due to brake judder that I started to get.
    Shocking really as I hardly ever use the brakes.

    Go for Pagid or Mintex. Have used both before and they WORK!
