We'll let you know here when they're available to purchase :)
thank you sir.

shortly in the next few weeks I will be installing ebc brake disc's front and rear. ebc green pads up front and yellow pads in the rear. these are 2002 types front and rear oem brakes and will be a good starting point for me to feel the intro product from ebc. these are the plain ebc discs which i gathered good reviews of.

i was doing research on slotted or cross-drilled disc, and the plain discs seem to get great reviews on performance and street use. I needed a decent brake company and found ebc for the 1st time, to seat the brakes back on the road from overhaul to the next upgrade point. i am hoping for decent results with ebc and would like to continue exploring their product line if needed to upgrade from the last. I am building a "race only" brake set up and a "street" set up. It will be interesting to see which companies fill those shoes over time.

Ever since I started doing SCAA/NASA racing schooling I have developed a frame of mind of "doubling." From doing weekend schooling bringing "doubles", having "doubles", and "thinking doubles". Being prepared for a track weekend obviously requires one to have double of everything considered a consumable or extremely important. Example,: double brake discs front and rear, double brake pads front and rear,, double shifting cables, extra clutch, extra flywheel,, extra flywheel bolts, double clutch pressure plate flange bolt.

Even getting down to double, head gasket, O-rings throughout cylinder head, ARB head studs. It all comes down to how much time you have to correctly fix an auto issues in the track parking lot. I must say

there is a misunderstanding, I have already purchased these parts for a trail run and if I want to consider EBC again. I will be buying DC5 Type R consumables soon as well as usdm types.

i mentioned that wrong. for street set up and normal driving. The yellow pads are for the front, green for the rear. i have basic discs front and back because it is the first time I am trying a ebc product, and I like to gauge feel products from new companies to me.

Plus slotted and cross drilled are stories in themselves that do not apply to every driving style or purpose for the disc that season.

thank you for the education from what you provided. I have used Carbotech pads for track for so long it would be hard to switch from them.

The plain rotors will do great for what you need, i would be keen your thoughts on the products you've bought, let me know how it goes :)
i will let you know. I can give you a good honest review. I have road course experience. I remember the first time I did a 30 min session, I had previously painted my calipers to be smooth a few months prior to the event. When I got off track using Carbotech pads the paint was bubbling like mad 😂 😛
