    What breaks are you guys running!!!!??

    Hey Everyone I've been looking into new pads for a while and honestly
    I know this topic has come up quite a few times, but I don't care.


    I've always loved the EBC blue stuff pads and always hated the stop techs to for my DD and sometimes Initial D fan boy,
    pretending to be Takumi Fujiwara canyon racer runs.

    I was just curious what pads have been your favorite to run in the evo for daily driving, light track, and canyon runs.

    Got my rotors turned recently and went back to Brembo pads..


    Not sure but I noticed more brake dust with those pads.. got me whipin the wheels down every time I get a chance.



    Had stop tech for a while not bad for DDs

    I've looked into the Ferrodo DS2500 and can't get myself to pull the trigger.

    Did you run them all around or just up front?

    on my 08 X GSR I used Project Mu Type HC after I wore down th OEM Brembo pads. they were ok for street driving and when pushed a bit. Not sure how they would hold up on track.

    I have the Stoptech pads. They work fine and are inexpensive.

    I've always wanted to try a set of those.
    Are they loud?

    HP+? Not at all. They let out a very little squeak once in a while when coming to a stop at very slow speeds. But it's rare. I don't use anti squeak grease either.

    Never had that issue back on my Audi with them, at least I think I used the hp+. If you bed the pads well the squealing goes should be reduced or go away.
