Porsche 911 Racer Raymond Boyd has been in touch with us lately with news of his recent races and given us his reviews of EBC Yellowstuff and Bluestuff brake pads that he has installed on his car. Here is what he says:

It been a wee while since you supplied the Bluestuff and Yellowstuff EBC brake pads for my 911 race car so I thought I would provide some feedback.

Both sets have and are performing well but I cannot believe how they last on track!
My car is a 3.0ltr twin plug engine 280bhp 911 and I have been running with a servo and both sets lasted approx. 7/8 entries, 8min quali & 2 x 12 lap races, mainly at K/hill but we also visited Cadwell, Oulten, Croft & Kirkistown over last 2 years.

I prefer the Bluestuff as they bed in quicker, give great bite and pull the car up quickly without lockup and less peddle fade throughout race. The Yellowstuff take a little longer to bed and provide a dead peddle and poor stopping until they cool then they perform almost as good as Bluestuff brake pads.
I have changed to a pedal box this year and still using the Yellowstuff EBC brake pads.

All working fine and very progressive. I used to use Ferodo DS 3000 as brake set up was geared around this but think that your Bluestuff brake pads are almost equal if not better on longevity.

In the last 2 season of using EBC, your pads has contributed to consistent top 3 finishes, 2 x overall season class wins and 3rd in championship, in the SMRC Classics, against more powerful vehicles and I thanks you for your support!

Thanks and regards

Raymond Boyd
