Brake Pads upgrade Carbotechs

Was running Carbotech 1521 on my RS3 a great pad I've used for years. Picked up a C7.5 Performance (stage 2) and feel the oem pads are not really great (of course it's a bigger heavier car and braking will never be the same as a smaller car) so thinking of going the same way with Carbotechs.

Was wondering if anyone running anything else with Good results on non-ceramic discs?

Thanks

I’m running EBC Redstuff pads on my Stage 1 S7. Great pads, zero dust and no squeal.
if your tracking or racing, then I beleave the EBC Yellows May be a better option.

Check them out here

That's a Friday set .

No Friday's Redstuff full sets on my 3 cars .

A few years ago I did 20K on the front Reds with bad Pagid discs , put them back with new Brembo discs and all good .

Pops just putting Ferodo Eco Friction up front with Brembo discs , will be interesting what he thinks of them , got to be less dust .

Lol if you ask raptor in your quote above he will tell you a very different story.
You keep using his posts though in your quotes

In fact why don’t you join the RS3OC and ask his opinion directly, that way when he tells it like was you can use that quote on here.......
In fact there will be 7/8 owners of 8P / 8V RS 3’s that will give you accurate feedback on how crap Redstuff are.

A broken record springs to mind.

There are plenty of satisfied EBC pad users world wide, me included.
The example you show is some kind of catastrophic failure. What’s the background/lead up to this failure?
