Odi Bakchis ranked 7th using EBC Formula drift brakes Nissan 240SX.

Formula drift racer Odi Bakchis had a great result last month when he ranked 7th in round 1 at Streets of Long Beach in Long Beach CA. Racing his Nissan 240SX equipped with EBC formula drift brakes, Odi qualified at 14th position during the qualification round in a line up of over 50 drivers.


Paired with fellow driver Ken Gushi, Odi’s aggressive driving style earned him steadily upward place moving advances during the race ending up within the top “Great 8” positions with Justin Pawlak that resulted in a seventh place overall finish for the race.


The next round of the Formula drift season continues at Road Atlanta in Georgia on May 9th and !0th.


The formula of brake pads Odi is using is EBC Bluestuff NDX, a high friction race and sport material that is great for use in the styles of racing that require aggressive driving such as that found in Formula drift.


For types of racing that require longer use EBC Orangestuff grade full race pads is a fantastic choice because of the faster bed in time and higher temperature threshold. The Orange grade race pads also much more kinder to the wear of the disc/rotor but do need replacing more frequently than semi-metallic brake pads that will may last longer but will need disc/rotor replacement at the same time. Other EBC formula drift brakes suitable for thsi style of racing include Yellowstuff Fastest Street, Trackday & Drift racing brake pads, offering zero brake fade amongst other suitable advantages.
