Hello Question now i remember talk of brake pads suitable for the alpine roads was discussed last time around . I used ebc green stuff last time and wasnt that impressed to be honest although i do run an auto so they do get extra stick as you all know. But im sure mintex were mentioned so my question is what type and where from please ? Or any other suggestions on standard saloon brakes.

Team 12 10CR 2015, successful finisher. Team 83 RBRR 2016, successful finisher. Team 53 10CR 2017â€¦
What is it about Green Stuff that people do not like? I've had them in my Spitfire for a while now and found them to be very good; very progressive and they lock the fronts if you keep pressing. This is on a Spit that is quite light admittedly. What am I missing?
