Guys need your opinion on these discs/pads..

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Civic-Type-R- ... 4616ca8539

If I buy the Mintex 1144's along with these discs will that be a good setup over standard?
Don't want to go down the ferodo route as I don't do track days and heard there very hard on discs. Heard the Mintex 1144's are a good fast road pad but are these discs any good? Any stories from cracking/warping under extreme heat at all?

Just want an opinion on these lads

The standards brakes aren't bad but do suffer when there hot which I don't like!
If I go oem solid discs and put in the 1144's will that be a good shout?

steer clear of generic unbranded drilled discs - they are just not worth it :bigthumb:

Brembo pads work great. was using EBC yellow stuffs previous to them, but find the Brembos work better especially from cold and give off less dust and last longer imo. not too badly priced either when you buy the front and back set together.

Feel better than standard, specially once you get them warmed up they really bite. Seem to generate the same if not more brake dust than the standard pads though which i can live with for the improved braking :)


Whare do you get these pads threw the fourm as i am needing a set!!
