Hey man at least 2 months back , no EBC option available for the car , but you should ask your city boys man.

So unless you are going to have a track like situation in your normal driving, all these upgraded brakes will do is give you bragging rights.
This is incorrect TSK.

Even though most cars will lock their wheels at speed even with normal pads - getting better quality pads can greatly improve the braking time and distance required to stop the car.

A lot of factors contribute to how good your pads are. How linear the curve is for their co-efficient of friction (in other words, how much more braking you will be able to get out of the pad on the way to, and @ just before lockup - which is just where you want to be), how they behave at different temperatures etc. Good aftermarket pads definitely have the advantage over OEM pads in these areas.

Would be surprised if it was for the worse!! Those pads are awesome. Fitted them on my Lancer and it improved the braking enormously! The only thing about them - they stink (literally!). I had kept them in the backseat overnight, and in the morning I could hardly sit in the car!! Excellent brakes, but remember to keep them in a sealed packet or something prior to installation.. lol!

BRAKES are the single most important upgrade one needs if one is modding a car beyond a point.

When stock brakes are used that's fine but just ensure you have stopping power to match your engine.

We don't think twice before installing an audio / body kit for $$$$$, but when it comes to brakes, we suddenly run out of money. "Brakes to theek hain" Match them to the car's performance or better.

That is my two bits on the subject. SO GUYS SAFETY FIRST !!!!


Cheers

Hi Honda
You do get EBC brake pads for OHC.
Contact Ananat - N1 Engineering for the same.

Any particular make of brake pads that help in reducing the brake dust ? My wheels have to get scrubbed everyday now, dammit.

Dear REHAAN, I am going slightly away from the topic which is covering DISK BRAKES. Iwould like to share my experience with you all. One of my vehicles is a Maruti OMINI 2005 model. I was fed up of poor performance of brakes, at times dangerouse. Allways as usual I would replace the moulded brake liners with new set for all four wheels and within few days brakes would start to fade and required adjustments. I got hold of a new set of AMBASSADOR brake liners from shop along with a small pouch of alluminium rivets, I removed my existing bonded mouldedliners fixed the AMBASSADOR liners on it by drilling holes in the metal shoes and fixing the liners by rivets finally fixing it. The massive improvement in performance was unbeleivable. Brakes were just unbeleivable and powerful.I have used it for almost 12000kms after fixing without a single time adjustment. Once I just opened them on a sunday and seeing them in perfect order, just cleaned them with water and soap and fixed the wheel. [It is best to clean the brake liners ,back plate,drum and area around wheel cylinder with water and soap instead of using kerocene or diesel or petrol]
