    Not wanting to sound ungrateful, Gary, but the best pads shown on that site for my car (e30) are Greenstuff. Do these people sell the better grades over the phone, and would the discount still apply?

    Yes they do. Bought yellows for mine last week :thumb:

    I asked them about the pads on the website and they explained these were just the pads they'd recommend for OEM replacements.

    You can call them and and they'll supply anything you want.

    Can confirm they will even make new pads for any car if you supply the old brake backing plate with worn down compound.

    Its a bit more expensive but not silly prices and they will do any EBC compound you want :thumb:

    Cheap, hold up well to heat, crap pedal feel. Didn't like them, but are available in a lot more fitments than some of the better pads.

    + Cheap (unbeatable for the price IMO)
    + Work well from cold
    + Get better when hot
    + Almost zero dust (I'm not a detailer but it does make a difference not to have jet black wheels after a trackday plus they only need a quick wash for it ALL to come off without sticking)
    + Super-smooth - far superior to Ferodo DS2500; the worst aspect of brakes for me is vibration/judder when they get too hot and these pads just run "clean" for me all the time so even after a hard track workout they drive home super smooth.

    - Agree that pedal feel isn't the best I've used. However this is relative, and for my 205 at least it made brake modulation easier (DS3000 would lock if you breathed on the pedal). On my M Coupe it also means to brake hard you press hard etc rather than working on a mm of movement being the difference between brakes on or off.
    - Absolute stopping power isn't anywhere near as good as DS3000 (but then they are a very aggressive pad) but they're good enough for trackuse for me.

    Ordered some on line on Monday, arrived this morning.

    Brilliant service.

    Only thing that threw me a bit is that its advertised as 20% discount.

    The discount is actually off the RRP.

    Their website is already discounted, so i saved £18 instead of £32.

    Still a good saving though.

    Yea, by the far the cheapest I've found them at. I thought I was doing well buying them from ebcbrakesdirect.co.uk who discount 10% and give free shipping but these were £10 cheaper still.

    They came with some sort of black sticky backing thing that I need to cut out and stick on. I'll get my office girl to do that in the morning. she likes that sort of stuff :lol:

    bargain.
    Got front yellowstuffs, a set of braided brakelines and a braided clutch cable for the bimmer today.
    Over the phone with the northloop extra discount and I couldn't believe the price I was quoted.

    Cheaper than some outfits were charging for the pads on their own!

    Big Kudos

    EBC Bluestuff NDX have recently been released for some cars. Apparently much high friction rating than Yellowstuff both hot and cold and longer lasting. This sounds like a great pad if so!

    Mixed thougts out there a ATM on them.
    Silverstone Rave school have been using them on the Nissan GTR's and Astons with no issues but some Race teams have had glazing problems.
    They are also retesting them to see why.

    Blues are the endurance pad, so unless you are running a long race I have been advised to stick with Yellows for now as the best EBC trackday pad but check back in a few months following further testing ;)
    The Blues may be better at hot braking than the Yellows and will try a set nearer early summer.

    The normal EBC Bluestuff is the hard endurance pad with a lower friction rating than the Yellows etc.

    From what I've read the new Bluestuff NDX is a race pad with a higher friction rating than the Yellows which suggests it's very different to the normal Bluestuff and EBC don't claim it to be an "endurance" (concrete) pad.

    On here they're claiming it as a race pad for the road! http://www.brakes4u.co.uk/itemdetail.asp?catid=31819

    Yes, the NDX is a different pad to the original Blue but still based on a "Race lasting" pad as per the original one.

    I'm not saying it isn't any good just commenting on what a very reliable source told me about them ;)
    As I said, I might be trying them in a few months to see how they go as they may offer better friction and temp control over a number of track laps.

    There is still some testing to be done with them and they will be given a good test on an MX5 racer very soon to see how they perform on a lighter car that has previously done very well on Yellows.

    ps they are not road legal and don't work well in very cold conditions

    EBC Yellowstuff weren't technically road legal for a while being classed as "race pad" but I always used them for years (think they' E-approve now though) I'm just saying the NDX is being claimed to work great on the road suggesting it's not a concrete pad requiring 300degrees to start working etc

    Also I'd rather test them myself, based on most people's opinions on EBC pads over the years!! I've used Yellows since 2005 and they've always been great despite most people claiming the complete opposite!


    Some waffle from an EBC source;

    A world first Race pad that can be used on the STREET.
    This is highly unusual as until now Race Pads have been built with no regard to disc wear, noise, harshness, bite from cold and certainly never tested and passed brake safety tests for Highway use such as Europe’s ECE R 90 Brake safety test.(see note at bottom about street use in Europe)

    The biggest advantage of the new EBC Bluestuff pads is their bite from cold and progressive feel. This is achieved by blending with specially chosen man made naturally mined fibers which are much less harsh on rotors than semi metallic fiber used by ALL OTHER Race pad builders. Deep V grooves help venting and catch dirt, dust and debris. Notice the open granular surface texture after the heat scorch (pre-bedding) process.

    The EBC Bluestuff NDX formulation has been developed during years of track driving and in 2009 was refined to be suitable for the 3000lb USA model cars such as Mustang,Camaro,GTO,Viper and especially Corvette. Even on the (shall we say) difficult to perfect, race braking on the later “Padlet” type caliper using 6 and 8 piece pad sets the NDX performs well.

    The NDX pad material is bonded to the steel backing plates using multiple high strength interlock holes and a unique chemical interlayer which raises shear and bond strength by a factor of five and prevents pad to plate separation. The pads are then baked and ground and feature high volume Vee grooves to catch the inevitable large amount of debris from track use.

    Target use is all types of fast and heavier cars in performance and race driving with much enhanced lifetime over our previous Yellowstuff grade pads.

    EBC Bluestuff pads are now PRE BEDDED by heat scorching. This new piece of equipment that we have installed at the UK EBC Factory allows us to offer you a pre bedded brake pad that beds in within 3-4 stops at the track. This major advantage puts EBC ahead of its competition where drivers can arrive at the track, fit new pads and in a single warm up lap can be ready to race. This does of course still require consideration for rotor condition which must be flat and smooth to achieve good contact, we can do a lot at EBC Brakes but we cannot work miracles (yet).

    Ducting
    When using a street car brake system for racing the mere insertion of a race formula pad does not transform your car into a track beast. Some cooling ducts often need to be added to give the brake system and pads a chance to survive race use.

    Using Bluestuff as a Street only pad
    It is totally acceptable to do this but please note;
    In Europe – The ECE R90 brake safety regulations will require the pads to have R 90 certification and this is NOT available for all cars. For a list of cars that HAVE R 90 approval please check with our tech team on technical@ebcbrakesuk.com. If you purchase this product for street use and you do not tell us, you are taking your own risk that the pads have no such approval. They will work fine but not legal. The pads however are an excellent brake material for all kinds of street driving, very sharp on the pedal, last well and absolutely no hint of fade.[B]

    I`ve got a set of Blue NDX to try on the Golf.

    I`ve run Yellows for the last 18,000 track miles and have a pretty good idea of how they perform, ie low/average initial feel, good feel once loaded up, good braking performance and good pad life with low disk wear and medium dust.

    I shall report back with my findings once I`ve tried them for a few trackdays

    Interested to hear what how you find them&#33;

    I&#39;m currently running RS29s but at £230 a pop new they are a bit pricey but the Blue NDX sound like a good alternative at half the price. The RS29s are better than the Yellows for feel and power (the yellows just have less bite overall cold and hot) but the cold and hot friction ratings quoted by EBC suggest the NDX will be similar to the RS29.

    I must admit [lack of] dust is a requirement for me as it&#39;s a road car with tidy wheels, something the Yellowstuff and RS29 are excellent for. I get the feeling the NDX won&#39;t be as good but as long as it&#39;s not the aggressive type of dust then it shouldn&#39;t be a problem.

    Code still works, just ordered some rear Yellows for my car.

    I find it odd though that the website only offers Red or Yellow for my car when Blue and Orange exist. Yellowstuff are the better pad though of the range.

    They've recently (?) changed to EBC Direct and don't off the Bluest iffy on the website anymore. You need to speak to Carol on 0845 225 5011. Tell her you used to get them through Bart (aka Andrew Barton ski IIRC) and they'll give you 40% "race" discount. I got me rear pads that way a couple of weeks ago.
