    I've never been a fan of EBC, if itís for the track then go for a set of Carbone Loraine RC6's they're fantastic.

    Steer clear of EBC they have a tendancy to break up and the friction material falls out with the backing plate!!

    See ive been told they are pretty good, although they do get alot of mixed reports. Will only be doing three or four trackdays a year, and to and from work etc.

    Re: EBC Yellowstuf pads

    I've spoke to a few clio drivers at trackdays who are running them and swear by them. Although I can't comment on pads coming away from backing. Mine need replacing soon and I intend to try the Yellowstuff. My mate runs them on his Corsa VXR and swears by them.

    Pretty Sure burpspeed use the or have used them in their race car and some police forces have them fitted to their cars so cant be all that bad! I think its just the crappy green stuff etc that are s**te!

    Re: EBC Yellowstuf pads

    i used them on both my clios and i thought they were great, cold bite was really good, and get better as they get warmer

    have any of you actually fitted them and ran them in your own car? or just going on forum word of mouth?

    Re: EBC Yellowstuf pads

    I've always run them whenever I have replaced pads. Never let me down and never ruined my discs.

    You will always hear bad things about every different product though so it never really helps reading reviews.

    Re: EBC Yellowstuf pads

    I think there are some horror stories from years ago that get repeated, Ive personally always found EBC pads to actually be quite good despite what some people would say about them and I have aggressively worn them down to nothing without them ever falling apart.

    In fact Ive just put some yellowstuff in the 6 pots Im fitting onto my nova, as an alternative to the massively over priced genuine tarox ones.

    Re: EBC Yellowstuf pads

    Can't comment on yellowstuff, never used them. What I will say is that I have always used redstuff pads front and rear in my 172, and have nothing but praise for them. They have coped with 160 mile road rallies in the SW, where you are constantly on the brakes for six hours non-stop, and I have always been the last of the late brakers at hillclimbs, sprints, and track days. Taken all the abuse I can give them with ease.

    Really?

    I as good as melted the RedStuff in my Cup after two laps of Goodwood. They were never been the same since. Horrid pad!
