DBA would be good a choice for disk rotors. Or RDA ive heard is also pretty good.

What pads are you using?

Some pads tend to be harsher than other on the rotors and will warp them quicker.

i tend to find bendix ultimate work well with my setup...lots of squeel, but pull up ok even when you work them (as i found recently during my return from the top of mount dandenong)

Yeah i heard that too. Just read not long ago on another forum about the ebc greenstuff pads being hard on the rotors, but have also read on here somewhere that ultimates were harsh aswell.

I still like the EBC products though, good stopping performance, no squeeling or brake dust issues like bendix pads have
