I've had a search but didn't turn up any hits on this, so please feel free to point me elsewhere if it's been covered before.

I'm basically looking to upgrade my brakes as I managed to induce fade after a few 130+ mph stops. My usual pads of choice (Ferodo DS2500) don't appear to be available for the Mk3 Mondeo so are there any other fast road/track pads that people would recommend? I see Pagid offer the Pagid Blue and Black Diamond offer their Predators but I have no experience of either. I'm wary of EBC as I ran some Greens on a previous car and they were shocking, but I hear the new compound is a lot better.

I'll probably stick with the OEM discs but uprate the fluid to Super Dot 4.

All advice appreciated :D

Yep, slow down :whistling:

I am sure someone asked about Jag brakes, that might be an option

i'm running mk3 brakes with drilled/grooved disks with EBC greenstuff pads and they are brilliant (i even tested them on silverstone and was well impressed!). greenstuffs dont work so good on standard disks though.

the other important thing to fit is goodridge braided brake hoses, they are about £35 a set from burton power.

Thanks for the feedback and it's good to hear EBC have sorted themselves out! When I ran them, I used them on some unwarpable Godspeed grooved and drilled discs .... which warped :(

For some reason, I assumed the Mondy's brake lines were reinforced, but if they're not it's definitely worth going the Goodridge route :D

I ran standard discs with EBC Redstuff, and had no fade, even on three consecutive hot laps around the Nurburgring. They were a little wooden when cold though.

The Jag brakes in question were for the S-Type R. There are no options for the X-type that aren't available for the Mondeo.
