Anyone tried them? Seems everyone is on Porterfield or Axiss MM. EBC's are great on my motorcycle.

IMO, EBC should stick to motorcycles.

I dislike their Red and Yellow stuff. Everyone I know that has had their greenshit did not like it. Stops OK, but tends to glaze when used moderately hard. There are better choices out there (KVR, Porterfield R4S, Metal Master)

I agree the Metal Masters stop well. This weekend I drove an Altima and a Miata both with MM. My only problem is the dusting. Damn the dusting! Washed the Miata on Friday, drove it 100 miles and dust is forming on the wheels already. Same with the Altima. Less than a week and the wheels are dusty as hell.

I wish more people would give KVR pads a try. I have them now for the AD22VF brakes on my SE-R. Stops every bit as good as MM and the dusting is almost non-existent.

I've had my KVR's on my NX for 2 years now (approx. 20k miles), and I LOVE them. Very little dust, stop MUCH better that stock pads (which aren't bad for stock pads), get better and better as they heat up. They are little weak until they get broken in, but the are worth it!

www.cyberauto.com

has them for $43.91/set for AD22VF setup! IMHO, that is only a small amount extra for a LOT of extra braking performance. They also have pretty fair prices for ACT clutches, too, from what I've heard other people paying for them.

GET 'EM!!!!

I use and love the Meatl Matrix race compund. Very hard to find, but worth the premuim over the regular Metal Matrix. Personally, I'm pretty easy on pads. I've only faded Porterfield RS4s at ButtonWillow, but not the regular MMs. I decided to work on braking later (and thus harder) and switched to the MM race pads, and love them on the track and the street in my SE-R with the NX upgrade brakes. I can get them for less than $60. I can get regular MMs for less than $30.
