hi all
i was wondering if anyone has heard of (prime) brand brake pads
they are kevlar metalic.
i have used a few no namers and they get hot to quick and the pads just
burn away. i have got dba drilled and slotted disks .
at the moment i have got bendix performance pads they work ok
but im still not satisfied.
a friend has recomended prime kevlar metalic pads.
so i was after some opinions ......

thanks..................... :)

I'm using EBC greenstuff pads with slotted rotors. I have so much fun trying to get them to fade and trust me i've done some nice runs through the twistys. Checked them yesterday and still got plenty left on them.

got them off hightek brakes and will be getting same combo when i replace them.

fitted a set of ebc greens only last weekend, paid $115 delivered from cresent motorsport at liverpool, I think the quote was $95 + delivery, but if you can get em trade. I also run these on a jag XJS V12 that gets sprint raced, with a good fluid behind em, we can't get em to fade, I'm putting the XR on the track this weekend at eastern creek, I've already done some damn hard braking from some stupid speeds and no fade at all on a standard set of ventilated solid rotors, I've had some big name and big reputation pads previously, and the EBC's are already out performing the rest.

get the EBC's
