What a good result!

Assuming the price is right, I will take a full set of greens (front and rear)

That's what I was wondering about. I'm guessing that to get our Forum discount it would need to be a Group Buy in some kind of semi-official manner. Alternatively I can take orders and pass them on. I asked a bit more about the difference between Green and Yellow pads, and Green are the recommended Road pad, but aren't recommended for track use. Yellow is the stuff for track use.

I was wondering whether BetaBoyz might want to add the Green pads to the list of stuff they sell?

Green work from cold, on a light car they're probably OK for occasional track use, hill climbs etc.

I've had them on a few cars and they're pretty good. My usual test of driving through Milton Keynes from East to West failed to get any to fade and I can get most standard car brakes to wilt a bit there if the roads are clear....

Yellow aren't so good cold but they'd be the ones for sustained track use

Stuart

EBC have re-formulated that pad compounds in the last couple of years and Yellow stuff have had big changes from the old wooden until hot formulation. They are now used widely on UK Police cars and I would have them over Green stuff every time.

Eric,

Thanks  - I didn't know that. I always thought the 'old' yellow pads were a bit dangerous for road use TBH so it's good to know they've modified them.

The latest email I received from Andrew at EBC said this:

The green will be the best compound for the road

If you have someone doing track events and they donít want to change pads at the track then yellow will be ok for road use also but will not really offer any advantage over green in road use

Green will not be suitable for track events


However I'm sure there's a fair amount of corporate arse covering/liability disclaimer going on in that statement...

So - shall I give people Andrew's email address to sort out their individual requirements, or should we put in a group order?

Hi

Did he indicate how to place orders?

Also if we need a minimum order quantity?

It would also be good to have some pricing.

Sorry to put the onus on you to answer this, if that is a problem, happy to help out.

^^^ Wot he said

Apart from the bit about helping out, I'm far too lazy and unreliable for that Smiley

I'd be up for a set of greens and maybe yellow as well depending on cost.
