Anyone use these? I heard great things and heard they don't create NEAR the dust as the OEM's. <p>Just curious. <p> <A HREF="http://www.autoaccessoriesgarage.com/cart/prod_page.asp?PID=EBCBDP31210C_13&ClientID=1003&vlink=" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autoaccessoriesgara...link=</A>

Re: Red Stuff Brakes (Husker Z)

Doesn't look like they have an application for late model R's.<p>Opps, my error, I didn't go deep enough in the search!<BR><BR>

I have had the Red on another Volvo with cross drilled and slotted rotors and they worked well. Just make sure to bed them in well. I currently use the Green on my Rover.

<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>kmg_S60R</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Had a buddy who ran a Turbo type R with them and liked them. The model and design that was available when he bought them I personally would not have used them as they were not what I was looking for in a brake pad. Although, installed the updated version (see below) on a Cobra and instantly became a fan. Once the pads were properly set and bedded in went out and played on the track. Lap after lap the braking point became deeper and deeper. They just wanted to keep doing their job better and better. Made me a believer in their updated Red Stuff Pad <br>I don't know why it shows not for racing but the experiance I have with them seems that it would make them a decent if not good track brake pad.<br>Redstuff Ceramic - 3000 Series <br>For Highly Tuned Cars and Fast Street<p>(Read Race Warranty Below) <br>High Performance LOWEST DUST rating pads for Prestige imports and faster street driving.<p>There are TWO reasons our customers love Redstuff, First because they are the lowest dust pad we have encountered by reducing dust by 60-90%. Plus the minimal dust you see is very easily removed with a simple sponge wash as it contains no steel fibre particles as in ALL OTHER pads. Second they brake like an alligator right from cold (as good as Original pads or better) and just get better as they heat up.<p>This material is a Kevlar® fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. If you have previously tried EBC redstuff (pre-ceramic compound) this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter. <p>Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor). This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking.<p>It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>A post of mine off if another thread... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> I included the link if you want to take a look. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=115010" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=115010</A>

Re: Red Stuff Brakes (Husker Z)

Put them on my V70XC front in November.<br>My 2 cents is these have the best street stopping power in all the pads I have used in 34 years of Volvo ownership.The downside is they produce more dust than I would like. You will love the performance.I am guessing they may not have been the latest"Ceramic" formula. <br>Unless you post a low/no dust review I am probably putting HPS Ceramics on the R when it needs them because I hate cleaning wheels.

Re: Red Stuff Brakes (M96)

I've used the Greenstuff with good results <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> never tried the Redstuff though. I wonder how hard it is on the rotors.<p>Those of you saying you're getting the HPS ceramics - go for the regular HPS - same low dust but more bite.

I am looking at several sites where Redstuff pads are listed for 04-07 R's. I am also looking at other options like HPS. But in searching eBay, I came across this- <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Volvo-S60-T5-305mm-01-07-F-R-Brake-Rotors-Pads_W0QQitemZ370147899189QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item370147899189&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=72%3A1171|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...A1318</A> I know more often than not you get what you pay for, but has anyone actually tried these? If so, are they decent or just <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> ? TIA

I don't think the pads will fit the Brembos and our rotors are 330mm IIRC.

Re: Red Stuff Brakes (S60R1)

RED STUFF: I ordered a set of fronts and rears from Autocom.com that were listed as 2004-2007 2.5 Turbo R. So hopefully they will work out for our car. Hopefully also I will receive them by sometime next week and get them installed the weekend of the 25th. I will report back on fitment issues etc. as soon as I can.
