Or I think it's EBC Red Stuff (I think there the lower grade pad to green stuff).


i ahve also been looking at pads lately.

if you look at the ebc charts, green stuff pads are recomended for smaller/lighter cars, which falcons are definatley not.
red stuff are the ones you need to look at, these are recomended for medium/large cars and they are slightly dearer than green stuff...

equivalent to red stuff would be formula ferodos, which is what i will be going with... got quoted $300 (front and rear) although i havent shopped around for any other prices!

$300 for a front and rear set is a great price for Formula Ferodos, I know a certain big Australian auto part store begining with an R pays around $100 for a set to buy + plus freight, etc.

Also to Note the 4000 series DBA rotors are heat treated from Factory. This means that they are much less prone to warping or cracking, and generaly inprove there anti wear charastics

Sorry I know my spelling sucks, but I hope you get the gist of what im trying to say!

Yeh Race brakes also recommend me too go ferodoo pads but im still looking into everything. My mate can get me front DBA 4000 series for $530 the pair and the rear is a made to order and i should get a price next week.

Im also looking at just getting the standard cross drilled and slotted for the rears as there only 30persent in use while the front is 70% which will take most of the pressure, but not 100% sure as yet because it may only be a couple hundred difference and go the 4000 series.

Retail price is $200.00ish. But most of the time if you got a decent sales person they'd do a decent price for you - I know I would.
As for the name if you can't guess the company, then I'm wondering if your bright enough to have a licence. There's only 3 BIG national auto part retail dealers. Only one starts with an R.

Yeh they do offer the 4000 series for the rear but is a made to order for the rear but still the 4000 series is only heat treated which only get through a fue layers of the metal which is not good as they still do crack, but if they criogenic the disc which gets through the whole disc rotor then there may not be any cracks at all.
