I was looking at the EBC Green Stuff pads for my next set to go with the slotted rotors. Bendix Ultimate have had good reviews but they create a bit of dust.

I have just done a pad and rotor change during the week, I opted for DBA slotted's.

Pad wise, I went for the awesome Ferodo Formula's. Freaking awesome pad!! yeah they are not cheap, all depends on your budget.

Give Matt at Sydney Race Brakes a call.

I am VERY happy with my combo. Great feel, have not had fade yet and I've given them plenty of curry this week.

i replaced mine last week, i had bendix ct with slotted rotors... ummm absolute crap!!...
there is a thread outlining the issues with using bendix ct's on slotted rotors..
gearbox-suspension-brake-driveline-f4/burnt-rotors-so-which-pads-now-t97985.html its true... i had the exact same issue..
the only up side using ct's was next to no brake dust..
im now running the same slotted rotors with bendix h/d much much better better....

dc_todd.. how much were the ferodo formula's??

Yeah, I just love the squeak and shudder I get from the factory pads and rotors fitted to my car...

If your on a tight budget and dont have slotted rotors, just get a set of Bendix DB1108GCT. They retail for about $75+gst/set.

If youre on an even tighter budget, the Coretech range available from Motor Traders should do the job fine. I know The Engine Centre have an account with us, you could get a set in through them maybe, the part number is CDP1108, retail for $45+gst/set.
