Brake pads, EBC HH or EBC extreme pro? Others?

Looking to replace my brake pads on the rweezy. Haven't changed them out so I dont have any experience with anything except the oem. Mainly used for the track, what are you guys using? I've heard good things about EBC HH, and the EBC extreme pros. I found the Extremes for 160 for both sides for the front. Found the EBC HH for 102.00 for both sides on the front.

Any experience with these two? Thanks

Will

For the track either the EBC EPFA's or the Vesrahs.

I can get you either one.

Vesrahs are a little more expensive than the other brands right? They are supposed to last longer if I remember correctly?

SRJL XX are the big daddy ones. I'm going to get these.... I think its a great idea to invest on the good stuff when it comes to things like brakes.

You shouldn't be paying anywhere near $100 for two sets of HH for the fronts. You can get them for around $30/set at CG.

EBC HH are serious business, but they are either on or off if you know what I mean,

The Extremes are in my opinion a little better because they aren't so instant stopping power but when you want them they are there.

EBC all the way.

Clayton,
I'm running the XX's right now which is apparently the top Vesrah pad. Next set, however, I'll try the SRJLs which seems to the be choice around the paddock. The RJLs are the street/track pad. I ran a set of RJL's and loved them as well. When switching from the EBC pad to the RJL's, I about put myself over the bars going into The Launch the first time, they had so much more bite. The RJL's lasted almost 6 months of very heavy track usage combined with quite a bit of spirited street riding.

-Curt

Question.....

I was told I should prep the rotors when I'm chainging brands / compounds with some garnet paper. What grit should I use?

i went from EBC HH pads to the Vesrah SRJL's. night and day difference. I was getting a lot of brake fade with the EBC's. Granted they are more of a street pad that were taking abuse at the track. maybe you've seen this. if not, hope it helps...
