EBC discs & pads From £58

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Prod­uct News -


Bri­tish firm EBC has made a name pro­duc­ing per­for­mance brake ma­te­ri­als aimed at the mod­i­fi­ca­tion and af­ter­mar­ket sec­tor, and can sup­ply an ex­ten­sive range of fit­tings for pop­u­lar clas­sics and mod­ern cars alike. Di­rect re­place­ment OEM pads and discs are com­pet­i­tively priced, but the low-dust, high-per­for­mance Green­stuff, Red­stuff and Yel­low­stuff types give the best re­sults. We’ve put 2000 miles on our SLK since fit­ting Yel­low­stuff pads and USR discs, and, over that dis­tance, the level of brake dust has been re­duced to the same level of de­posits as the orig­i­nal pads left in 200 miles. Brak­ing per­for­mance has also been sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved, with a bed­ding-in layer on the pads en­sur­ing good per­for­mance from the start. Fit is per­fect, in­clud­ing wear wire lo­ca­tion, and the at­trac­tive paint fin­ish has lasted well so far. Used in con­junc­tion with grooved USR discs, there has not been an au­di­ble in­crease in noise ei­ther. Yel­low­stuff is a fast road and track focused com­pound and may wear faster – on the road, how­ever, there is no in­di­ca­tion of fade, even on fast, twist­ing B-roads.
