Guys, wondering if you can help
Currently I have RDA standard sized slotted rotors and EBC greenstuff pads on my ride with Elf Dot 5.1 fluid

I have not been happy with the pads performance and want to switch to twin piston with braided hoses and have contacts for the hoses here in adelaide

However I don't know where to go for pads
Don't want ceramics, the EBC kevlars are not strong enough and I haven't been happy with ferodo, PBR or bendix in the past either

I am after beginner to mid range race pads or top shelf road pads and looked at cebco's website but big time pricey
Anyone here used there products?

Which Ferodo's have you tried? My mate is very happy with the Ferodo CT 2000 (now called Ferodo Excel I think) pads and he hits Wakefield and Oran Park now and again in his XR6T, he mainly racks up street clicks to and tows a van. Sorry no Cebco experience with me.

Another bloke i know cuts a 1:10 around Wakefield in his Rex (Porsche GT3 record is 1:02) and he's running Ferodo Formula TS2000.

I used the one down from the top model which are those you mentioned
However I think I should invest in twin piston setup and braided lines and then larger slotted discs and pads
