I thought redstuff pads were a racing application. I use HD greenstuff pads (Part number 71616), made a vast difference to the levels of brake dust on the front wheels. Can't remember if they made much difference to the stopping or pedal feel (They've been on a while), but the dust issue alone is a reason to buy IMO. :thumb:ajc6882 said:Im looking for the best brakes and rotors for my front end of my escape. I have been researching and the EBC Rotors and Red stuff pads seem like a good fit.. I wanted to know what everyone else is using in there Escape.
EBC Premium Disc - EBC is proud to be one of the only companies selling a British manufactured brake disc programme. Our high quality grey iron includes copper to increase thermal conductivity and wear properties.
All EBC Premium Discs are cast to a material strength of 150 N/m2 with a tightly controlled surface hardness variation less than 20 HB and are precision CNC machined to a surface tolerance of less than 0.05 mm. That is TWO THOUSANDTHS of an inch. For this reason EBC recommends a maximum runout of fitted rotors of 0.1 mm or .004 inches (4 thousandths) TIR which means total indicator reading on a dial gauge. Runout figures above this will lead to vibration after 3000 to 4000 miles due to what we call disc thickness variation (wearing a thin spot on the high point of the rotor as it runs off-true) which is NOT a warranty condition.
So you see this is no cheap import brake disc. These brake discs have the highest integrity and product quality on the aftermarket. An OE quality replacement disc, made of the finest grade steel and a perfect replacement disc for any car.
EBC also emphasises that disc must be fitted to absolutely clean hubs free of all dust dirt rust and scale and that COPPER OR MOLY GREASES are NOT use. Such greases contains abrasive particles which can cause runout being similar in effect to dirt particles on your hub.
You'd think so, but the Maverick is such a rare sight over here, I don't think anyone bothers stocking them. :roll:ajc6882 said:I would have thought EBC rotors would be easy to source over there. Considering they are made there.
