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.

regards all

Hi Folks,
            Tim Hunt Swayed me to go Ferodo FDR167.
Did nearly 3000miles around Scotlandshire earlier this month. Worked very well.

I also was a GreenStuff user but have given up on them now.

Pads from Burton Engineering.

Mintex M1144 on the Spitfire, I've always been very happy with their performance.

Glad you like the Ferodo pads Roger. FER167 is the pad design, the actual compound I favour is DS Performance.

Of course it is, they wouldn't be selling it otherwise would they?

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?
