What pads for an 'S

Post by philfingers » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:22 pm

I have Armstrong pads in the 'S at the moment and FFS they're useless. Feel wooden, no power.
Any suggestions, road use only, something that will work from cold, not fade when they're warm etc and a sensible price. Am I asking too much!
Lots on ebay, EBC HH £40 pair, Galfer HH £29 pair, Goldfren Ceramic Carbon HH are £25 pair.
Ideas on where to go for them appreciated too

Got the EBC HH for £35 for the set
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0744521854
Seemed good value

Maybe out wednesday, still awaiting the shock back from Rev's. John's fitting a new spring (£24 from ebay, a 425lb faulkner) and is going to up the damping from std a little

Fitted a std chainguard, fitted some new KIPS ball joints tonight and broke the ECT, the terminal was loose and I was trying to remove it to solder it up, bugger was well seized. . . .. . So need one of those now!

If you want better brakes from cold try some thing like EBC green stuff, the HH sintered pads generally work better at temperature under hard use.
Hardcore you know the score
