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 USR Slotted Brake Discs/Rotors

EBC Bluestuf NDX Brake PadsEBC Ultimax Slotted USR Brake Rotors are manufactured using premium disc blanks. These rotors benefit from quiet running which is all down to the narrower multi-slot design and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined.

This has the benefit of removing dirt, gas, water and debris and having the advantage of parallel pad wear.
