Mtec Disks (drilled and grooved) with Mintex pads were £160 ish :)
I'd upgrade the pack to have the Mintex Red pads though (£10 more i think)
The normal Mintex are the same as OEM pads and aren't made to be trashed

Disks are brilliant though!!

For circa £200 you can get a full set of disks and pads that are better than OEM, can't knock it really :)

Ebay is your friend !! haha

Be careful with drilled, apparently there prone to crack.

Lots of variables and circumstances that lead to this, we've never had it happen on the track cars!! (touch wood haha)

IMO, overpriced.
Both parts and labour - But that's a dealer for you...

Haha, How long do the discs last on track cars?
From what i read wasn't it the rapid heating and cooling that caused hair line cracks around the drill holes?

From what i saw it put me off enough to just get grooved anyhow, bit more noisy under heavy braking, but i'm not too fussed. I'm more focused on trying to keep my eyeballs in their sockets when it happens.

What temp do the brembo didcs go to? Are they coated too? Do they contain more carbon?

I can't seem to understand the information that brembo say?
I seem to recall my EBC turbogroove are zinc coated and temp rated to 600C or 900C or something in that region

I seem to think at the time it was a factor of double or triple OEM discs in terms of temp rating

Not sure about the brembos though................
