brake opinion.

I searched and found nothing on these brakes.

What is your guy's take on EBC Brakes?

Re: brake opinion.

I have EBC brakes on my Honda 300ex quad. I know EBC specializes in racing brake parts. They are a pretty well known company, with what I would say a good reputation. I dont see any problem with getting them.

Re: brake opinion.

EBC makes good pads -- whether they'll work for you depends on the compound and what you're doing. Race pads on a street-driven vehicle may stop less well, since they're designed to operate hot, and you may not get your brakes up to temperature. There are some pads that sort of bridge the gap -- IIRC, EBC Yellows fall in this category. They'll tend to be noisier and dustier than a stock pad, though...not what you want if you insist on clean wheels!

Re: brake opinion.

since theyre drilled, theyll probably crack, ive heard that from numerous people. best setup IMO is brembo blanks with hawk pads

Re: brake opinion.

Brembo drilled rotors are one of the only rotors that don't crack because they are molded. I also have 13.25' front drilled/slotted rotors made by fastbrakes, that have been used aggressively and are still perfect.

slotted rotors are instead of drilled ones.

And for some edumacation.

One of the main differences between ceramic-enhanced friction materials and semi-metallic brake linings is that ceramic pads contain no steel wool or fibers. Steel provides strength and conducts heat away from rotors, but it also makes pads noisy. Steel also acts like an abrasive and causes rotor wear. Substituting ceramic materials and copper fibers for steel allows ceramic pads to handle the high brake temperatures with less heat fade, to recovery quickly, to experience less wear on both the pads and rotors, and to virtually eliminate noise. Annoying brake squeal is eliminated because the ceramic-enhanced compound dampens noise and moves vibrations to a frequency beyond our range of hearing.

Other features that help make ceramic pads extra quiet include chamfers, slots and insulator shims. These features are also found on other types of pads, but may not be used on all applications.

Chamfers are angled or beveled edges on the leading and trailing ends of the pad that reduce "tip-in" noise when the brakes are first applied. Chamfers also reduce the surface area of the brakes slightly, which increases the clamping force applied by the pads against the rotors. This further helps to dampen sound-producing vibrations.

Slots are grooves cut vertically, diagonally, or horizontally in the pads to reduce noise by changing the frequency of vibration from an audible level to a higher, inaudible frequency beyond the range of the human ear. Slots also help reduce brake fade by providing a passage for gases and dust to escape at high brake temperatures.

Insulator shims provide a dampening layer to absorb and dissipate vibrations before they can cause noise.
CERAMIC PADS REDUCE BRAKE DUST

Another features of ceramic pads is less visible brake dust on the wheels. All brake pads produce dust as they wear. But the ingredients in ceramic pads typically produce a light colored dust that is much less noticeable, and it does not stick to wheels like ordinary brake dust. Consequently, alloy wheels stay cleaner longer.
LONGER PAD LIFE

Ceramic pads also extend brake life compared to most conventional lining materials. Akebono and Raybestos both say their durability testing has shown significantly longer life with no sacrifice in noise control, rotor life or braking
performance when ceramic pads are used compared to other friction materials.
CERAMIC PAD APPLICATIONS

Ceramic pads can be installed on any vehicle that is originally-equipped with OEM ceramic pads, or on vehicles that are equipped with Nonasbestos Organic (NAO) linings. Ceramic pads are NOT recommended to replace semi-metallic pads, especially on larger, heavier vehicles. On trucks and large SUVs
, semi-metallic linings are typically needed to handle higher loads and braking temperatures.

Re: brake opinion.

Question, what is your take on slotted and dimpled? they arent drilled so will they still crack?
