EBC Brakes - Redstuff - Has anyone used these brake pads ?

Hi, i own a 2010 Evo X GSR and the stock brakes make ton of noise squeal at low speed. I'm looking for a solution to greatly reduce or eliminate the braking noise and someone talked to me about the EBC Brakes Redstuff pads.

Has anyone used those pads ?
Has the squeal sound stoped ?

Thank you !

I would do some 60/50/40 to 5mph hard stops about 6 in a row. It should bed the brakes in. If that doesn't solve it, pop the pads out and lube the backing with some brake grease.

Can you explain further ??

Simply saying Avoid isn't that much information...

What other brand do you like better ?

I am on Magic pads. A lot of people like the Ferrodos, too. All Hi-perf pads are going to make *some* noise. The Factory pads are Ferrado also, and as you know they grip like a crack-whore getting her cash. I'd remove your pads and clean all mating surfaces, then apply something like "Cerametallic" coating to the backings and sides of the backings. This will solve 95% of the noise. The rest that you hear will likely just be the contact surface noise, which is minimal compared to the pad-backings, etc. PM me if you need more help.

I don't mind having hi-perf brakes but i'm willing to reduce perf if that eliminate also the braking noise...i could bear a light squeal but it's now louder than my stereo !

Would bedding-in the pads help in any way or is that only a temporary solution ?

Isn't there already a pad-backing on the factory stock pads ?

Ebc pads are horrible, they will fade and break up with any kind of abuse, I've used reds and yellows in the past and I think tree bark would make a better pad material.
Carbotech xp8, ferodo ds2500, brakes are important, not something that should be a budget item imo

I really don't mind paying for a good set of brake pads but i just want to skip the noise...if that means lowering performance...at this point i don't mind. I'm not looking at EBC for a cheap deal but i've heard the're pretty quiet and have low dust that's all.

Isn't it ferodo that comes from factory on Evo X GSR 2010 ?
