EBC Brakes Yellowstuff Brake Pads

EBC Yellowstuff Brake PadsEBC Yellowstuff brake pads are ultra high friction brake pads for race, trackday and street use, race drivers in particular love them because they are made from an aramid fibre compound. These pads are ideal for street and track driving as they don’t require a warm up but get even stronger under hard driving.

EBC Brakes GD Sports Brake Discs/Rotors

EBC Bluestuf NDX Brake PadsEBC GD Series brake disc rotors are now available in a Black thermic and NITROTHERM™ finish and feature wide aperture slots that draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface which help cool the temperature of the brake pad contact that can easily and often shoot up to well over 1000 degrees during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect – the cool effective use of the slots helps prevent this.
