Hello Dave, I spoke to you last week about getting on to EBC regarding redstuff for the fronts of the 2.2 diesel.

The rears are identical to the Type R so we can already get redstuff for them.

Any news?

P.S. ordered the braided hoses less than 24 hours ago and they are here already! cheers.

Brilliant, glad they got there quickly! ;)

EBC still havent developed any Redstuff for the front yet because for harder use like fast road and trackdays, they recommend a revised Yellowstuff compound now. Will get some prices up now. ;)

Dave, the yellow stuff may be the answer but ;

are they noisy under normal conditions?

how much heat do they need before they actually stop the car, i.e. do they work from cold?

will they eat my discs?

Thanks in advance

EBC have changed all the compounds from the old types. The Yellowstuff isnt just a track pad anymore because they now have as much bite as a redstuff from cold and exceed a redstuff for the track use. It sounds like reds wont be made for some cars due to what a yellow can do now. Its all very clever now with what they can do with compounds. :D

So if you like driving a bit quicker on twisty roads etc then the yellows are the ones to go for. ;)

Thanks Dave but at the same time you are a git. After getting the braided hoses, I was hoping not to speak to you guys for a while. Now I think I will have to order some yellow stuff pads as well!!!!!!! :mad:;):p

The front part number is right, but the rear ones should be FCP1862H.

Fronts are £119.00 inc vat

Rears are £94.50 inc vat

Both are in stock with Ferodo and can be with you or us next day.

Hope this helps?;)

Dave thank you again. Are they twice as good as the yellowstuff pads as the price suggests or is that due in part to them being imported (exchange rates and all that?)

It could be, but Ferodo will say its because you get what you pay for! They are top pads, but its whether you can justify the price difference i suppose. :D

I'm trying to decide whether to go for EBC Yellowstuff or Ferodo DS2500 front brake pads. Will they both work well with standard discs, and will they both work well from cold?

Was a bit concerned when I found the following statement when looking into the Ferodo DS2500 pads:

Customers should be aware that these are a Racing Compound and as such that we do not warranty these pads for use on the road.
In otherwords it is YOUR risk to use on the road.

Hoping you can advise otherwise.

Cheers,
Smudge

I've used Ferodo pads a few times on mondeo and sapphire.

They are excellent pads....excellent enough to boil your oil.
Work very well and last ages with stronger disks.
Anyway....what you do have to watch is cruising down the motorway for an hour or more and then pulling off the motorway to normal roads.
You suddenly find out how bad they are when cold.
Nearly got caught out a couple of times.
I'd say you lose Maybe 50% braking.....no matter how hard you press the brakes you dont slow down.
They take about 5-10 minutes stop/start town driving to warm up properly.
These were fast road and not the racing pads either!
Bare that in mind before buying ;)

Thanks Relic, I do about 90% of my mileage on motorways, the rest are on twisty country lanes. I was hoping the Yellowstuff would suit my needs, but also interested in the Ferodo's until I read that. I have encountered a complete lack of stopping power in my Civic twice, once on the M5, despite no faults being found by the dealer. I free'd off, deglazed and copperslipped the brakes and this improved them, but I'm after a decent set up before I consider Remapping the car.

Been finding the missing breaks myself alot on the motorways.
Just cold brakes and the gentle rubbing on the motorway.
They just dont like it.
Unless your on the carpark...M25

Nice to know I have similar things to look forward to with the civic.
Think I did have the problem coming back from nottingham...but I've got so accustomed to it I hardly think about it. I think I automatically allow a bigger braking distance and break gently as I come off. But I did get it on the motorways also (Not nice when everyone slams the anchors on like you...and your still closing in much faster then you want to).

Ironically if you follow in the fast lane with the constant brake accelerate the brake temps stay up. Most people prefer to cruise and get the MPG though with the civics by the looks of things. Not good.

Dont get me wrong the fast road Ferodo will be just perfect for country lanes. They use to stop me great....until that burning smell....when they stop working and you still need them (boiled OEM brake fluid). Gotta flush the system and get the best fluid you can. Will get air locks out your system as well if thats causing your no brake problem (doubtful). Someone else might have already boiled the fluid for you.

Have you used the green stuff before....I have no experience although I heard good things and had recommendations. The yellow stuff sounds even more interesting.....but I'd want to know that they behave better then the Ferodos when cold.

I have mentioned in another post that I used Greenstuff pads on a previous car, the first set were brilliant, worked well from cold, quiet, good pedal feel. When they wore down the replacement Greenstuff pads were of a "new improved" compound, the pedal feel was never as good, the braking power was also down, and the friction material crumbled within about 5000 miles.
