Trackday Pads

I haven't done a trackday for a couple of years, and would like some recommendations as to the best pads for my Evo 5.

The car is predominately for the track, but will attend the odd show and meet.

Standard 4 pot Brembo's on the car at present, which will also be fitted with decent trackday tyres, such as DZ03's? R888's etc..

Pads I have previously used included:-

DS2500, then tried Pagid Blue as the DS2500's were too expensive.

The car is running at 500/433 and will be driven to the track.

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Dean

Either PF.01 or XP10's would be good choices...

Carbotech xp10 would be my choice

Having said ^^^ if the ds2500 pads where to expensive then you shouldn't be using a 500 bhp evo on track.

Better brakes is one of if not the most important upgrade for a track car so spend extra and get the right bits for the job.

If trying to save money throw some yellow stuff pads in it, wait for them to fail and end up with a large repair bill from a tyre wall or armco barrier.

If you wanna stop lap after lap.. No fuss then carbotech xp8 xp10 xp12.

Only one name comes to mind with track pads imo.... Carbotech.

500bhp = xp10 or xp12.

Ds2500.... You obviously don't wanna stop quick then.

The only other pad brand I would ever consider is padgids.

Thanks for your comment above.

And maybe I should of said:-

"Pads I have previously used (years ago before I got my pension) on non Evo cars included":-

I use Pagid RS29s on my Evo (& my other car). They are very good but I am not 100% sure if they make them for standard Brembos or not.

I had Carbotech XP8s on the car when I first bought her. They're very good but for a more dedicated track day car, as mentioned above, XP10s will be a bit better (you could go for XP10 front & XP8 rear; that can be a decent balance sometimes - depends on the car and your driving style).

OP, there are plenty of people who use DS2500s on GTRs on track without any issues. They maybe aren't quite as good as RS29s or XP10/XP12s but if they can haul a near two tonne car down repeatedly, they shouldn't be too bad on an Evo (but would be a bit more of a "budget" track day pad IMO).

So you've totally gone against what people have suggested and gone with EBC yellow stuff?

My gosh, some people
