Guys,I am about to fit a reconned LSD to my EB1 with braided lines right through,and wish to fit a good type of pad.I wish to have brakes that work instantly,rather than the type that have to be warmed first. I use the car as an everyday driver,sometimes a little aggressively. What brand/type do you reccommend?

I've got bendix ultimates in mine and i reckon they are awesome. There excellent when cold, and get even better when hot and punished hard.

I havent tried any of the other ones, like green stuff etc, so can't compare - but the ultimates are very good.

And this is in an EL

PBR Performance, Bendix Ultimate, Formula Ferodo. There all pretty good pads, for the most they work well when there cold to, were a real performance pads I've been told tend to like to be warm before being at there best. They also shouldn't eat your rotors too quick (remember the harder the pad the more it's biting out your rotors).
Taxi drivers seem to love the Bendix Heavy Duty (old Metal Kings) and Ultimates, and most of them doa s**t load of milage and are reasonably hard on the brakes.
