EBC Brake Pads

EBC Brake Pads for the MINI Cooper

EBC produces high quality replacement and performance Brake Pads for the MINI Cooper.  Whether your MINI needs routine maintenance or upgrades for track, EBC offers a solution to fit your needs.  EBC Brake Pads use higher quality friction material than the stock pads and typically costs LESS than the factory replacement pads!

These pads includes the slots for the factory brake wear sensor for a direct replacement.

Upgrading the Brake Pads is one of the first steps in improving the performance of the brakes in your MINI.  The combination of drilled and/or slotted rotors, performance brake pads, and racing brake fluid can delay the onset of brake fade under extreme conditions.  This is a cost effective alternative to installing Big Brake Kits.

EBC offers the following Brake Pads – scroll down for more details:

  • The Ultimax2™ Pads – low cost replacements
  • The Greenstuff Pads – a great stock replacement with improved materials
  • The Redstuff Pads – a popular LOW DUST Ceramic replacement
  • The Yellowstuff Pads – track rated street pads that works great at Drivers Ed events

NOTE:  When installing new Brake Pads, MINI recommends new rotors and the use of anti-squeal compound on the brake pads.

EBC GREENSTUFF UPGRADE PADS

A nice upgrade from stock with a slight brake dust reduction.  Greenstuff 6000 series is regarded as a first level brake improvement over stock and can deliver up to 15% improvement in stopping power.

The latest version of Greenstuff brake pads are a deliberately softer compound to improve pedal feel on lighter cars at lower speeds. This resulted in a medium dust material with good lifetime and minimal rotor wear.

  • EBC medium dust fast street pad with 20-25% % brake improvement.
  • Capable of repeated heavy brake use without brake “Fall-Off”.
  • Very minimal disc/rotor damage characteristics.
  • Superb material for lighter model Asian and European sport compacts.
  • ECE R 90 type approved for most cars.
  • Features red “brake in’ surface coating for instant safe braking after install.

Many drivers of lighters cars and kit cars have used Greenstuff 2000 series with success in race use and tests at the UK MIRA Motor Vehicle Research Institute have shown a version of Greenstuff to stop a car almost 20 feet quicker than original parts on a popular hot hatch braking from 60 MPH offering a huge 15% brake improvement.

Greenstuff 6000 is a good quality pad replacement with medium dusting and good brake effect. Premium street sport pad for cars up to 200bhp. General spirited street driving.

Designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect up to 600°C (1100°F). EBC Greenstuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a no dust pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Nominal friction coefficient 0.55. For heavier faster cars and vehicles above 200bhp we strongly recommend Redstuff which does offer much less dust.

EBC REDSTUFF CERAMIC ‘LOW DUST’ PADS – Best Seller!

Our most popular brake pad upgrade for the significant brake dust reduction while improving brake performance.

There are two reasons our customers love Redstuff, First because they are the lowest dust pad we have encountered by reducing dust by 60-90%. Plus the minimal dust you see is very easily removed with a simple sponge wash as it contains no steel fibre particles as in all other pads. Second they brake like an alligator right from cold (as good as Original pads or better) and just get better as they heat up.

This material is a Kevlar® fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles.

Redstuff ceramic brake pads have always been known for its low dust ability.

  • EBC lowest dust fast street pad with 20-25% % brake improvement.
  • Capable of repeated heavy brake use without brake “Fall-Off”.
  • Very minimal disc/rotor damage characteristics.
  • Superb material for Prestige imports/European and Asian cars.
  • ECE R 90 type approved for most cars.
  • Features red “brake in’ surface coating for instant safe braking after install.

As EBC’s flagship street brake pad material for prestige and faster cars above 200BHP, the EBC Redstuff ceramic Brake pads sets new standards in brake performance.  Tested at the UK Motor Industries Research Association (MIRA) in witnessed tests early Redstuff reduced car stopping distance in tests by almost 50 feet from 100 MPH offering a staggering 30% brake improvement.

Redstuff brake pads are however as a harder compound does take longer to fully bed in to achieve its highest levels of performance (can be up to 1500 miles/2500 Kms urban use) during which time the odd “Chirp” of brake noise may be heard when starting from cold in damp and cold conditions at walking pace speed. One press of the pedal to clear the rotor of any dampness and this disappears to leave EBC Redstuff a pad that inspires confidence in all cars. The motto is be patient give the pads a full chance to bed down.

Brake dust has been rated by many OEM builders to be a more serious source of complaints than even brake squeal and as such EBC Brakes is proud to bring you with this new EBC Redstuff blend what is probably a world first in a pad that is almost dust free yet delivers performance braking.

Less dust also means less rotor wear and it is almost guaranteed that your rotors will last double as long as when used with the more abrasive steel fibre brake compounds used by almost all of our competition.

EBC Redstuff should be used at both front and rear for optimum balanced brake performance.

EBC YELLOWSTUFF STREET / TRACK PADS

If you take your MINI on the track, this is the pad you need.  The only ‘track rated’ EBC pad that also works great for the street.  High friction formula improves brake effect 30-40%.

High efficiency performance and race brakes for track & street use, fast to bed-in, great for street vehicle brake upgrade.  EBC Yellowstuff 1793 compound is a true winner all round, it has high friction from cold, not requiring warm up for street use yet when loaded up and really hot the brakes just get better.  EBC yellows are ECE Brake safety tested which means they must work perfectly from cold at least as good or better than stock pads. Because of its huge heat range , the applications where EBC Yellowstuff will deliver benefits range from fastest street use on higher horsepower sedans to Trackday and Race use on most street based cars.

  • Fastest brake pads for Street, Drift & Trackday racing
  • Zero brake fade makes this material perfect for fastest driving.
  • Capable of repeated heavy brake use without brake “Fall-Off”.
  • Very minimal disc/rotor damage characteristics.
  • Suitable for shorter track events and race use.
  • Medium hardness material feels good at pedal.
  • If all you need is stopping power, this is the material choice.
  • ECE R 90 type approved for most cars.
  • Features red “brake in’ surface coating for instant safe braking after install.

When Yellowstuff see some heat (which is not tested for in the ECE R 90 brake safety regulations) they really show their pedigree. 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.

Not only a high friction pad but very resistant to heat and loads of heavy braking means that yellowstuff has been used with great success in race cars and on high speed Police Vehicle brakes alike.

EBC Yellowstuff pads are used on the UK Silverstone Race Track Drivers experience cars because of their high performance and longevity. Yellowstuff also claimed a win in the Targa rally and for two years running in the Brazil Mitsubishi off Road Team Desert Challenge.

Because of its huge heat range , the applications where EBC Yellowstuff will deliver benefits range from fastest street use on higher horsepower sedans to Trackday and Race use on most street based cars.

ABOUT EBC

EBC Brakes produce the largest range of brake pads and brake discs in the world. With over 5000 part numbers for every type of moving vehicle. EBC Brakes are made in one of its two specialist factories in the UK and USA.

EBC has strongly pursued its philosophy that brake pads and brake rotors or brake discs are safety products and are best hand crafted and made with care and maximum focus on high quality rather than price savings and are designed and researched on an on-going basis in our own facilities rather than turning a high safety product into a commodity marketed price point product. We firmly believe that saving a few pennies on brake pads and brake rotors is false economy.

Brakes are the most safety critical part of any moving vehicle and in the case of cars and motorcycles quite often when brakes are used in anger, standard is just not good enough. The sport street use or trackday and race use of motor vehicles and motorcycles has led to a need for higher performance brakes such as disc brake pads and brake rotors or discs.

So what does high performance mean and how do we measure this performance ? Brake pads which are made of blends of petro chemical resins and other ingredients are made to a budget by car builders and are one of the first thing to be changed on a vehicles brakes when users are involved in sport or race use. A high performance brake pad will be one which has good friction level and pedal feel on first application and can hold this level of performance throughout the whole braking cycles. Brakes must not “Fade” or fall on in performance under the heat of braking. Not only must high performance brakes work effectively under heat and load they must have good durability. Additives such a copper or coke are blended into pads used on high performance brake systems to enhance durability.
