They claim to be ideal for trackday use while still having decent cold bite and no squealing when being used for the road... also a decent chunk cheaper than pagid / pfc etc... anyone here using them and care to comment?

Still trying (probably in vein) to find some pads I can use for trackdays and the road without having to swap them in and out every time or deal with god awful squealing.....

Tried rs29s but couldn’t live with them on the road.... any other suggestions also welcome!

EBC have had a somewhat patchy reputation in the fast MINI world, with some of the lower grade "fast road" Greenstuff pads falling apart in the calipers, and a lot of guys refusing to run anything by EBC.

A good friend of mine ran Yellowstuff in uprated calipers, and was happy with performance until he saw the state of his rims (just black with dust), and even less happy after I took him out in my car with Carbotech XP8s in stock calipers. He's now running Carbotechs...

That being said, I'm now running EBC Bluestuff in my MINI's K Sport BBK, and I like them: some bite from cold (usually a nightmare with race pads), good moderation, and no fade. I like them more than the Ferodo DS2500s that I ran before.

In the 997, however, I've got Pagid RS29 and I won't go back. They're great, and don't squeal that much... you just need to heat cycle them from time to time. You might try a lower grade Pagid, maybe the RS19s or RS14s. The supplier should be able to advise on noise.

Avoid EBC.

Pagid Blue are a good pad, not as aggressive as the yellow RS29.

RS5 was awesome but its been discounted, try RS4-2, provided you bed them in well with a good heat cycle, read trackday, the squealing, in my experience, is very limited, you will get it occasionally but if you want a pad that will stand up to a trackday your always going to have to compromise.

I have have not tried them but I have heard that Brembo HP2000 is a decent road pad that can stand a trackday

I use EBC yellows in my 996 and have done for years, there are better pads out there for braking power but more costly but I am pleased with how the yellows perform and they are mostly quiet. I use them in very heavy use in alpine passes, downhill at speed is far harder on them than a track day, to the point I have melted my brake wear sensors and centre caps have fell off the front wheels.

I have had the Brembo pads before and they were quite a good pad but boy were they noisy (didn't get round to a track day with them though), very embarrassing in traffic and when i had the roof down i used to think about putting it back up.

Im on pfc 08. Good cold bite, supreme fade free stopping power. Expensive, squeal like hell when cold. Wouldn't run anything else on track.

Also use castrol srf fluid. I run oe spec pagid pads from euro car parts on the road and switch for the PFC for track use.

EBC Yellow has a really mixed reputation on the R32 forum, very devisive. I went with the Ferodo DS2500 in the end, they were great for fast road work. But as you know, never tracked the R.

I had yellow stuff pads fitted to my 996, after 1 track day they were fitted to the bin. I run pagid blues now, much better!

On my previous 350z GT- a slightly heavier car but similar brakes I was amazed at the brakes on track days (anglesey and airfield at raf valley), they were just endless. They did squeek a little in everyday use.

When I pulled the pads to change for ebc yellow I saw they were ferodo ds2500.

The EBC yellows I found a little less confidence inspiring (oulton park a couple of times), but no squeeks.

On my 996 I have no idea what pads they are, but the brakes faded after a few laps of Aintree, I suspect ECP standard pagids.

I haven't ended up tracking the 996 much, and i'm not heavy on the brakes on the road. if I was I wouldn't hesitate to buy ds2500

Ditto.
Wouldn't waste my money on EBC!
