Bram knows their stuff

After one track day, Im pretty happy with some EBC yellows i have up front in my wilwood 6 pots. Much better than the QFMs i had before, and also better than the wilwood bp10s my calipers originally came with.

Also liking some ferodo ds3000s i have on the rear. But thats not really a good test of the pads on the rear? They do lock up with the hydro when hot though. Which i could never do with the cosworth pads i had in the rear before.
Doing it for all the wagons out there

Default Winmax

In our gravel rally GC8, 4 pots/2pots with booster, we have used Pagid rs4-2, which were great with lots of feel, but $$$
Then had some qfm comp2, and A1RM, which didn't fade, but lacked feel/control.
Some hawk?? things which were bedded in properly then removed at first service!
Now on our second set of Winmax W5s, and cannot see us trying anything else. Heaps of control (as good as the pagids) and no fade even with the discs glowing.
I cannot comment on noise or dust, or daily use, as these are not a priority for us, but for performance they work really well.

Second the winmax's.. Dust is high, but pedal feel & longevity is very strong.. I run w7's up front, so need a bit of work to get temp to come up to operating, but I rate them.
