Golf GTi 1.8 Turbo Front Brake Discs and EBC Brake Pads Yellowstuff Upgrade. HALO Dimpled and Grooved Sport Brake Discs. These are a firm favourite for many of our customers with the classic drilled and grooved appearance, but without the pitfalls of having a through drilled disc or more commonly described as cross drilled disc.Cross drilled discs allow channelling of hot gasses into the tunnel section of the brake discs in aid to assist the cooling of the discs, however for most brake discs this has a serious flaw resulting in hot spot surrounding the holes often resulting in cracking originating from the holes. Halo dimpled and grooved brake discs overcome this problem and offer additional reliability over cross drilled discs, the dimples work in much of the same way allow gasses to sink into the small pockets and immediately escaping once the pocket has passed the pad surface, the grooves also carry out the same task but also help to de-glaze your brake pads and assist with parallel brake pad wear. As our stock is cycled the discs supplied may or may not have a anti-corrosion coating around the hub area, some discs may even be Geomet coated depending on the specific application, if this is important to you please check with us before purchasing.
HALO brake discs perform on the road and on the track but as you can imagine the temperatures achieved on the track are usually much higher than seen under normal road use, if using on the track it's important that extra care is taken during fitment and post fitment. Ensure the hubs are cleaned before fitment. Ensure there is no excess free play in wheel bearings.Ensure the brake discs are running true before use by measuring run-out. Ensure the brake caliper pistons and slides are move freely checking slides for wear. Ensure tightening torques are adhered too. After fitment and road-testing re-check the wheel torque, this is especially important when using on track use after several laps, as the heat absorbed by the brake discs will transmit through to the wheel hub and wheel, this causes your components to expand and may lead to reduced wheel tightening torque. This will lead to brake vibrations when braking and may permanently damage your brake discs and ruin your track day enjoyment. ALL HALO Sport brake discs are supplied as an axle set unless otherwise stated. EBC Brakes High Friction Performance Brake Pads. Suitable for Fast streetcars, trucks and SUVs wherever a decent brake power upgrade is required. Super quiet smooth braking under all conditions, fully shimmed slotted and chamfered construction. Excellent cold bite coupled with high-temperature fade resistance. Progressive braking with unparalleled pedal feel. Drastically reduced stopping distances compared to OE. Brake-InT coating for accelerated pad bed in period. R90 approved thus legal for public highway use in European markets. For track use Bluestuff may be a better choice due to bedding in speed which is much shorter with Blue. Made with Nucap NRS hooks on back plates to totally eliminate the chance of pad debond.
EBC yellowstuff are ECE Brake safety tested which means they must work perfectly from cold at least as good or better than stock pads. When Yellowstuff see some heat (which is not tested for in the ECE R 90 brake safety regulations) they really show their pedigree. On Japanese cars built with lower friction FF-rated pads these deliver a full grade higher stopping and on German cars built with GG these are about the only aftermarket pads that will match or beat the pretty good German OE spec pads and that takes some doing. High-efficiency performance pad for high friction and improved stopping power.Not only a high friction pad but very resistant to heat and lots of heavy braking means that Yellowstuff has been used with great success in fast street cars and Police vehicle brakes alike. EBC Yellowstuff was upgraded during 2021 to remove copper from the mix to comply with environmental legislations and as the new mix lasts longer it is not now being suggested as a track material due to the longer bedding in process required. On the street, bedding happens naturally in the first 100-200 miles of urban use but for those drivers wishing to arrive at the track with new pads and enjoy their day, our current suggestion is to use the Bluestuff formulation for track day driving both front and rear. Because of its huge heat range, the applications where EBC Yellowstuff will deliver benefits range from fastest street use on higher horsepower cars on most street-based cars and even as a brake upgrade on Trucks and SUV. Yellowstuff is especially appreciated on Trucks for towing and heavy loads and where wheel and tire oversize upgrades have been fitted. In trackday/drift/hillclimb races where earlier Yellow blends were suggested, although track capable, is no longer recommended for track use on most cars due to its long bed-in process. BlueStuff is now our recommended entry-level race pad for all vehicles, which as a track hybrid is still great on the street and even better on track. But if you are to use Yellowstuff on the track, follow the below Fade procedures and remember that even beyond Bluestuff we have our new RP range and the fantastic SR series - both full race pads.
