Brake dust

Post by jonstr »

The brake dust from the stock pads is horrible. I'm looking around on other forums for recommendations and ceramic pads seem to be the way to go to reduce the dust significantly while not impacting braking performance. Carbotech is one that is listed on CF several times.

Any experience here with ceramic pads? Any recommendations?

For C4 Vettes I can only recommend EBC brakes (red) from experience when I used them for my 1986 Coupe.

You can ask around what they are quality like for high performance C6 :jsmile

here is a chart that explains the color

When I put a procharger on my 06, I switched to slotted rotors and ceramic pads fm Gene Culley, GM parts House. Very happy with their performance and lack of dust. Appearance stayed cleaner for a longer time. My .02
