    Default Which performance front brake pads?

    Just about to order replacement performance front brake pads for my 3.2 GSi with grooved discs. I've been using EBC red stuff for the past year which lasted around 20-30k and are wunderful when hot, but very noisey when cold. Can anyone recommend a fade free pad (within reason) that will suit fast road performance?

    Have you got 302 or 314mm discs? IIRC there is a VX police spec pad for the 314's but can't recall the part no.

    I'm sure someone will be along later with said part no. if you're interested.

    Should be 314mm as it's a '53 plate with the later chassis no.
    I originally had Duncans Police spec pads when I bought his groved discs, but they still faded, so after replacing the brake fluid with AP Racing Dot 5.1 and changing the pads to RedStuff it totally eliminated fading even on track days, but I won't be doing anymore track days until it's time to change the car, although I would still like fade free on the road, but without the noisey brakes.
