- Fully floating 2-piece rotor that allows outer ring to expand freely in response to heat. This reduces stress which in turn extends rotor life and reduces the tendency for rotor cracking during extreme use.
- Drive bobbins machined from a single piece of stainless steel giving maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Stainless bobbins reduce the requirement for regular disc maintenance and ensures the outer ring continues to float freely even when used on the public road with corrosive salts and other road grime.
- Each bobbin assembly features an anti-rattle spring clip ensuring silent operation when driving on the public highway
- Rotor rings feature 48 directional internal curved vanes for improved rotor coolin
- Friction rings are cast from high carbon G3500 alloy giving excellent wear properties and improved thermal capacity. All EBC disc rings are cast using the ‘centre split’ casting method, ensuring a balanced casting that will not distort under high heat, an issue common with cheaper ‘moulded out’ castings.
- Unique Swept Groove slot design for effective evacuation of braking dust and gasses whilst ensuring good initial ‘bite’ on brake apply
- Replacement disc rings for EBC floating rotors are significantly less expensive than our major competitors.
Best Pads for Track Day Driving
Trackday driving is surely the toughest test of any brake pad compound.
- Stock Calipers rarely overhauled or seals renewed.
- Full weight vehicles with seats and even the spare wheel on board.
- Full carrosserie inside.
- Minimal cooling systems to brake rotors pads and callipers.
Yet a lot is demanded from these track days of your brakes.
What can you do to improve this experience and safety?
The MINIMUM is to swap the pads out to a performance grade pad and surprisingly the heat threshold needed is higher than some pure race applications as the temperatures at the heart of the pad are even higher than on many race cars. Plus driving style encourages drivers to jump on the brakes rather than use them to slow and position the car.
A guide here on which pads can be suitable is listed:
Then brake discs or rotors must be in decent condition, either replace rotors or have them skimmed or be prepared to have extended pad bed in times and perhaps some scary moments as the pads seat themselves. Pads and rotors do not only have to be matched up and contacting in 95% plus of their surface area there is always a Chemical curing of pads known as “green Fade” which happens a couple of times during the final bedding stages and is often a cause for a driver to criticise the pads when in fact going thru this green fade stage and allowing the pads to cool would have delivered a very useable brake system in most cases.
Brake pads which have worked very well for entry level track day driving or drift racing are the EBC Yellowstuff grade brake pads, a high friction pad that beds in quickly and lasts pretty well. This material is used by the UK BTCC Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden in his Lotus track cars.
A slightly longer lasting version of the Yellowstuff grade is the new EBC Orange grade full race pads which have been beefed up for longer life and an even higher heath threshold.
Then on to discs a good solution might be the High Carbon discs that are made b UK manufacturer EBC Brakes details shown here.
