EBC Yellowstuff 12-15 Si
Yellowstuff Front Brake Pads by EBC®. These are racing-grade replacement brake pads designed to offer an optimum combination of performance for street use. Aramid fiber compound provides a high level of grip when pads are cold and maintains it without fade even under the hottest operating temperatures. Best suited for higher horsepower cars. These pads are recommended if you're making over 400hp and/or like to do spirited driving/autocross/light tracking. EBC USR rotors are highly recommended with these. Keep in mind, these pads will squeal before you properly bed them in.
Factory Bed-In procedure:
In Street use situations …
Bedding in when the red EBC surface coating (marked on the pads as Brake In) is applied.
Best procedure is to drive gently avoiding harsh braking unless in an emergency for first 100 miles. In the second 100 miles (up to 200) you can use gently increasing brake pressures when using the brakes.
Only after 200 miles urban driving (not 200 miles on a freeway where brakes are almost unused) should you attempt to apply heavy load and heat to the brakes. To do this final bedding on a QUIET ROAD in safe traffic apply the brakes and slow from 60 to 10 MPH five times in a row. Then drive slowly for a few minutes if safe to do so to allow the brakes to cool. Try to avoid coming to a rest whilst the brakes are heated.
A smell may be noticed from the warm brakes, this is normal. Repeat this procedure a second time after the brakes have TOTALLY cooled down. EBC pads get better with miles. Even after this bed in procedure it can take up to 1500 miles before the pads are at their best. In the meantime the pads will be good and safe but true potential not realised. EBC makes performance pads that last, they do not bed in within 5 minutes driving. Noises will be more likely during the first 1000-1500 miles use whilst this chemical bedding takes place.
