I hope you spoke to Ian Godney as he does a complete kit of all the above stuff you list for just £700. The CL pads will suit your track work see the photo:

Only thing is I don't need braided hoses as already got a set of tarox braided hoses!

Would those pads be okay for the ring though ?
Has he got a post on here that I could comment on or contact him directly ?

If you were a full member you would be able to PM him

Also not being funny for that package price you could afford to sell on a set of brake lines

The CL pads are more suited to track/competition than road, you may need ceratec paste to stop the squealing if you dont hammer them to be honest. As been said before you cannot get brakes that do it ALL! Or Suspension, or tyres, etc. Everything is compromise.

I have the PF pads - excellent for road and a few short track sessions.

Just phone Ian Godney otherwise - contact on his website. He does actually compete using his stuff so you know he is genuine.

Exact set up I run with carbon Lorraine rc6 pads on these discs, you can feel the g hooks under hard braking but they hold up real well done 2 track days now and no issues however my discs do look patchy for some reason? Held up real well at Blyton and that's a hard track on your car

If you do, you'll just leave deposits all over the discs and end up thinking they are warped and changing them, just wasting your money.

I am running Pagid RS29 on my DC5 in larger calipers/discs and they are really, really good. Less noise than XP10's I ran in my IX however the same performance. XP10 gave great performance but must be some of the noisiest pads I've ever used. I'm not saying RS29 are silent but they are very quiet compared to the XP10.

Saying that, DC5 and Evo IX are very different cars with different caliper/discs and I don't know if it's fair to compare noise levels? Just posting my experience.

End of the day there's loads of high performance pads that will do the job, PF, CL, Carbotech, Pagid, Hawk etc etc.
It does exist, it's called the Endless MXRS. Hardly any/no dust or squeal when cold and mega brake performance when hot / on track.

Downsides - performance isn't too great when cold, giving a slightly mushy pedal feel until last they're up to temp. and they are expensive

The MXRS are a street/track compound are they not, so comparable to XP6/8 etc? The problem with these sorts of pads on track is often then will continue to bite way beyond the operating temperature, break down and leave a load of crap on the disc - much like DS2500's do.

I've not had carbotechs on an Evo to compare, I suspect they will offer more outright performance than the MXRS but these pads are still pretty damn good on the track with non of the downsides.

I've not had any issues with fade etc on track at around 420hp anyway.
